How Many Draft Picks Did the Cowboys Have in the 2023 NFL Draft?

The Cowboys made seven total selections in the 2023 NFL Draft. They were also originally rewarded two fifth-round compensatory picks. However, they used one of those compensatory picks to acquire CB Stephon Gilmore while using the other to acquire WR Brandin Cooks.

All of the picks that the Cowboys possessed in the first four rounds of the 2023 NFL Draft were their original selections.

Who Did the Cowboys Draft in 2023?

Smith might not hit the ground running as the Cowboys’ starting nose tackle, but that’s OK. The defensive tackle position is already a difficult transition to make from the college to the pro level. Add in a sprinkle of technical rawness and a slow trigger off the snap, and Smith may take some time. But his overall athleticism and power capacity are incredibly enticing.

Schoonmaker has the athletic ability to be a seam weapon in the Cowboys’ passing attack, but he must be able to remain on the field through a nagging foot injury. Overshown will be an immediate contributor on John Fassel’s special teams units, but he has surprised early on with how many plays he’s making on defense as well.

With so much depth on the defensive line, we likely won’t see much of Fehoko on the field as a rookie. Scott is a Dan Quinn draft pick through and through, and he has seemingly impressed the Cowboys coaching staff early on.

Vaughn is another favorite of Cowboys fans, and his first preseason outing took the “smol” running back propaganda to new heights. He may have a legitimate chance to be the Cowboys’ RB2.

Brooks has arguably been the surprise of camp. He’s not on the same level as Jalen Tolbert, but he’s outperformed Simi Fehoko while also showing some special teams chops to boot.
