How Many Draft Picks Do the Cowboys Have in 2023?
The Cowboys have seven total selections in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Through the compensatory pick process, the Cowboys were awarded two additional selections in the fifth round and one selection in the sixth round. One of those fifth-round compensatory selections was traded to the Indianapolis Colts for cornerback Stephon Gilmore.
All of the picks that the Cowboys possess in the first four rounds are their original selections in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Dallas’ original fifth-round pick (161) was traded to the Houston Texans for wide receiver Brandin Cooks, along with a 2024 sixth-round pick. Meanwhile, Dallas’ original sixth-rounder was sent to the Las Vegas Raiders in exchange for defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins in October.

After earning an NFC Wild Card spot, the Cowboys scored a playoff win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before losing to the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round. Their playoff performance places them at 26th overall in Round 1, barring a trade-up.
Round 1 has been a fruitful range for the Cowboys in recent years. In the 2020 NFL Draft, Dallas was able to snag wide receiver CeeDee Lamb at 17th overall. And in 2021, they claimed Micah Parsons at pick No. 12. Both have already earned Pro Bowl nods, and Parsons has grown to become one of the best, most dynamic defenders in the league.
In the 2022 NFL Draft, the Cowboys carried on with their success, picking Tulsa offensive lineman Tyler Smith at 24th overall. Scouts regarded Smith as a relatively raw but undeniably talented prospect. Early in his Cowboys career, his elite power has been an asset at both guard and tackle.
