It makes it a little bit better when you can point to Amari Cooper and know at the end of the day it was well worth it. Still, the Cowboys will be keeping an eye on the NFL draft tonight as they take breaks from their Amari Cooper highlight video viewing. Today we will look at some of the “wishes” the Cowboys will hope for on day one of the 2019 NFL draft.The more quarterbacks that go tonight, the betterNell Redmond-USA TODAY SportsThere is one position the Cowboys are not interested in targeting with their 58th and 90th overall pick on day two of the draft, and that’s quarterback. With Dak Prescott in the driver seat as the team's franchise quarterback, and on the brink of signing a massive long-term deal, drafting a QB with one of their first two picks would be a poor use of resources. The more quarterbacks that go tonight, the more it will push position players down the board closer to the Cowboys grasp. It’s been rumored that Kyler Murray, Dwayne Haskins, Daniel Jones, and Drew Lock are all locks to go at some point in the first round tonight, if somehow Will Grier, Ryan Finley, Tyree Jackson, or Clayton Thorson (who the NFL loves by the way) could somehow wind up going in the first as well, that would be great for the Cowboys chances of having one of their guys fall to them.No more than two safeties go on day oneVasha Hunt-USA TODAY SportsIt’s no secret that the Cowboys are hunting safeties with the 58th overall pick. Between Juan Thornhill Emmitt Smith Jersey White , Taylor Rapp, and Johnathan Abram the Cowboys are crossing their fingers that one of these three is still on the board when they get on the clock tomorrow night. From everything I’ve been able to gather, Darnell Savage’s stock is rising and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson and Nasir Adderley could also go in the first round. That is perfect for the Cowboys, because they’ve shown little to no interest in Darnell Savage and Nasir Adderley. If at most only two safeties go in the first round (Darnell Savage & Chauncey Gardner-Johnson), that will leave Juan Thornhill, Taylor Rapp, Johnathan Abram, Nasir Adderley, and Deionte Thompson on the board when day two kicks off. With just 25 picks before the Cowboys are on the clock, it’s hard to believe that five of those 25 picks (20%) will be for a safety. Only one wide receiver goes in the first roundKevin Jairaj-USA TODAY SportsThe Cowboys do not seem all that interested in taking a wide receiver at 58th overall. So why would we want more of them to be available on day two? Going back to the 25 picks we talked about between the start of the second round to when the Cowboys will be on the clock, we want as many players/positions that the Cowboys are NOT interested in to go somewhere between picks 33 and 57. When talents like D.K. Metcalf, Deebo Samuel, N’Keal Harry, Hakeem Butler, A.J. Brown, and Kelvin Harmon are available on day two, they’re likely going to go, and go fast. Marquise Brown is likely the one wideout that is a lock to go in the first round. If he is the only wide receiver drafted tonight Womens Ezekiel Elliott Jersey , that will then push top end WR talent to day two, where wide receiver needy teams will be chomping at the bit, pushing defensive lineman, cornerbacks, and safeties down into the Cowboys range. “Flagged” players falling out of the first round, and possibly to the CowboysDouglas DeFelice-USA TODAY SportsThis is likely the least likely scenario on our Cowboys wish list, but it’s not totally out of the question. There are currently multiple “flagged” players slated to get drafted in the top 50. Jeffery Simmons is the biggest name, followed by former teammate Montez Sweat. Both players a disruptive defensive lineman that are going to get under-drafted due to to their health conditions. Simmons is just three months removed from tearing his ACL in pre-combine training. Before suffering the injury, Simmons was a lock top 10 pick, and was many folks second-best interior defensive lineman behind Quinnen Williams. Simmons will likely be needing a red-shirt year to fully recover from the torn ACL which will likely push him down to the back end of the first round. Along with the injury flag, Simmons also had a domestic abuse arrest on his record from 2016. Simmons has stayed clean off the field since the incident, but it is still something teams are going to make note of when making their draft boards.Mississippi State EDGE Montez Sweat was diagnosed with a heart condition at the combine, that now has him off many teams board, according to multiple sources. Sweat is a freak athlete with elite pass rush traits. Sweat has helped himself a ton this draft season with a dominant week down in Mobile at the Senior Bowl, and an even better showing at the combine. If Sweat does somehow fall into the Cowboys range, and they feel comfortable with his medical situation, then picking Montez Sweat would be a no-brainer. LSU’s Greedy Williams has had an interesting offseason to say the least. While his play on the field is top notch, his character Michael Gallup Jersey , size, and work ethic has been put into questions by many scouts and coaches. Williams is a 6’2”, 185lb corner with exceptional ball skills, length, and athletic ability. Andraez “Greedy” Williams is the perfect cornerback prospect to be molded by Kris Richard due to his athletic and physical traits. While it would shock me to see Williams fall out of the first round, but multiple reports floating around this morning think it’s something we could see happen.The NFL draft is full of excitement, trades, and questionable picks, but it sure sounds like the Cowboys, and their fan base will be able to sit back, relax, and watch all this craziness go down as we all prepare for day two of the NFL draft on Friday. Former Cowboys quarterback Jon Kitna and Kellen Moore were both backups for Tony Romo.

But all that changed in 2016 when a couple fluke injuries forever changed the face of this franchise. Entering that season, the Cowboys depth chart at the quarterback position was as follows: (1) Tony Romo(2) Kellen Moore(3) Dak PrescottBut before the season begun, QB’s #1 and #2 had succumb to injury and the team turned the reins over to the rookie Prescott. Fast forward three years later and Romo is one of the top broadcasters on TV Womens Leighton Vander Esch Jersey , Moore has flown up the coaching ranks to offensive coordinator, and Prescott has since started every single game for Cowboys. In that span, Dak has helped lead his team to two divisional titles and has more game-winning drives than anyone else in the league. Prescott is entering the final year of his rookie contract and it’s just a matter of time before he is compensated handsomely.The team is sold on Prescott for the future and are currently negotiating for an extension, but reports are the two sides aren’t close yet. With the idea of a rising star quarterback demanding a high price, this cat-and-mouse game could go on for a while. The Cowboys could choose to just stand pat and address this next offseason. That would make the 2019 season a very important one for Dak in terms of what type of money he will command from his second contract. While that would mean Prescott would have to wait for that big chunk of new money, there are a couple factors working in his favor this upcoming season. And as fate would have it, those factors just so happened to have backed up Romo.The offense is now under the control of the super-smart 29-year-old Kellen Moore, who the organization is hoping helps fix the offense. Moore’s innovative ways stems back to his college days where his 50 wins is still an FBS-record. While his on-field talent didn’t translate into an NFL-starting caliber quarterback, his brilliance at running a complex Boise State offense didn’t go unnoticed. Moore had the intelligence to handle a high-demanding Bronco offense that was filled with many different formations and an extensive amount of plays.Moore has been a favorite of Cowboys players both as a teammate and as a coach. He’s always well prepared and has a strong understanding of how NFL offenses work. Prescott will tell you that Moore is one of these young genius phenoms in the game and that clearly must be what the front office believes too for them to trust the offense to such an inexperienced coach.The Cowboys have added a lot of new players to the roster that should aid Prescott tremendously. Prescott went on a tear when Amari Cooper arrived and the two of them will now have a full training camp to work together. Randall Cobb joins the receiving group, and he brings experienced route-running and big play ability to the offense. And the team just drafted the dynamic Tony Pollard. Our own RJ Ochoa provides a great analogy to how the brain trust view Pollard’s potential under Moore’s control.The Cowboys are hoping Moore is that skilled driver.But Moore isn’t the only Romo backup that should have a key role in the success of Prescott this season. From 2011-2012, Jon Kitna served as Romo’s backup and now he’s back in Dallas as their new quarterback’s coach. Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty ImagesKitna now takes over Moore’s old job and brings with him much more experience. Our own David Howman talks about how the new quarterback coach could be one of the team’s most crucial hires this offseason.Not only will an improvement with footwork help Prescott make better throws, but Kitna’s influence should help Prescott trust in himself to cut loose a bit. Better accuracy combined with a stronger inclination to make throws down the field could be the secret ingredients in helping Prescott reach stardom. And if that just so happens to occur in a contract year, somebody’s going to be cashing some rather big checks real soon.The influence of Moore and Kitna could be just what the doctor ordered for Prescott and the Cowboys. And wouldn’t it be something if a couple of former Romo backups helped the team’s young quarterback reach the next level of success and become one of the highest paid players in the NFL.
