The Cowboys didn’t have a first-round choice, having traded it to the Raiders as part of the deal for Amari Cooper. They will make their first selection at No. 58 tonight.
The Cowboys don’t hide their interest. Only once since 2005 have the Cowboys drafted a player with their first choice who didn’t visit team headquarters. That was an unexpected trade up for Morris Claiborne in 2012.
Safeties Taylor Rapp (pictured), Juan Thornhill and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson were among Dallas’ 30 national visitors, as were pass rusher Jaylon Ferguson, running back Damien Harris, receiver Deebo Samuel and offensive tackle Greg Little.
It is likely the Cowboys draft a player who was among their pre-draft visitors.
