The Dallas Cowboys fell short of a Super Bowl run after a 12-5 season, frustrating fans and creating endless speculation about the future of the team. How many picks do the Cowboys currently have in the 2024 NFL Draft to help ease some of those worries?
Cowboys Picks By Round In 2024
- Round 1, Pick 24
- Round 2, Pick 56
- Round 3, Pick 87
- Round 7, Pick 231 (from LV)
- Round 7, Pick 242
How Many Picks Do the Cowboys Have in 2024?
After several trades in the offseason, the Cowboys are slated to only have five picks before any compensatory picks are announced. Dallas owns all of its first three picks, but they do not own a fourth-, fifth-, or sixth-round pick yet.
The Cowboys sent their fourth-round pick to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for quarterback Trey Lance. Their fifth-round selection was used in a trade-up in last year’s draft to take cornerback Eric Scott Jr.
Dallas’ sixth-round pick was part of a trade with the Houston Texans in exchange for wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
Dallas owns the Las Vegas Raiders’ seventh-round pick as part of the trade for defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins.
Who Did the Cowboys Draft in 2023?
The Cowboys had eight picks in the 2023 NFL Draft. Dallas used its first-round pick to take Michigan defensive tackle Mazi Smith with the 26th overall selection. Smith rotated in with Osa Odighizuwa and Hankins up front. After slimming him down inexplicably as a rookie, the Cowboys are likely moving Smith back to nose tackle to help shore up their run defense.
With their second-round selection, the Cowboys drafted another Michigan player, tight end Luke Schoonmaker. Schoonmaker is the TE2 behind Jake Ferguson, but he did post two touchdowns on eight catches this season.
In the third round, Dallas drafted Texas linebacker DeMarvion Overshown. Overshown showcased some exciting playmaking and versatility in the preseason, but he suffered a torn ACL and missed the entire season.
Dallas opened up Day 3 of the draft by drafting San José State defensive end Viliami Fehoko Jr.; Fehoko didn’t play this season while stuck behind several talented pass rushers on the Cowboys’ roster and was placed on injured reserve in November.
The Cowboys spent their fifth-round pick on North Carolina offensive lineman Asim Richards. Richards played in relief at both guard spots and left tackle this year.
Dallas had two sixth-round picks in the 2023 NFL Draft, one courtesy of a trade-up with the Kansas City Chiefs. After trading up, the Cowboys selected Southern Miss cornerback Eric Scott Jr., who didn’t record a snap for the Cowboys this season.
Dallas used its second sixth-round pick on Kansas State running back Deuce Vaughn. Vaughn finished with 47 total yards this year.
The Cowboys used their final pick on South Carolina wide receiver Jalen Brooks. Brooks played in six games this season and caught six passes for 64 yards.
