On the second day of Project 2023 of the NFL and the Dallas Cowboys bet on cover areas of need on both sides of the ball with their selections second and third round.

Dallas he invested his first-round pick in a defensive tackle Michigan, You know Smithwhich will bolster a rushing defense that has finished no better than No. 19 in the NFL in Mike McCarthy’s first three years as head coach.

Let’s take a look at the two players recruited since Cowboys inside second day of the draft:

Second round, 58th overall pick: Luke Schoonmaker, TE, Michigan

My opinion: After taking a player from Michigan in the first round of blacksmithlos Cowboys they recruited another Cleaner. They can do whatever they want Cowboys of his tight ends, working both on the line and in the field. After losing Dalton Schultz to free agency, they needed a tight end to play Jake Ferguson (last year’s fourth-round pick), Peyton Hendershot (last year’s undrafted free agent), and Sean McKeon. He is a solid defender and comes from an inside system Michigan who appreciates the versatility of the tight end.

Hits and misses in the second round: The luck of Cowboys in the second round it was erratic. Trevon Diggs (2020) has made the last two Pro Bowls. DeMarcus Lawrence (2014) was also a Pro Bowl player. jaylon blacksmith (2016) went to a Pro Bowl but slumped after signing a multi-year deal. Kelvin Joseph (2021) was not developed; Trysten Hill (2019) was cut last year; Randy Gregory (2015) has been suspended several times. Connor Williams (2018) and Chidobe Awuzie (2017) were solid, if unspectacular collaborators who were offered better free agency deals by other teams. There is hope defensive end Sam Williams (2022) can make a big splash in his sophomore year after a strong rookie season.

Third round, global selection n. 90: DeMarvion Overshown, ILB, Texas

My opinion: He has held various roles in Texasbut the Cowboys they will see him as a weak linebacker in defensive coordinator Dan Quinn’s scheme. With Leighton Vander Esch and Damone Clark as two top linebackers (counting Micah Parsons as a pass-rusher), the Cowboys they needed to find help at the linebacker. Overrated he provided the stats, finishing with 30.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage, nine sacks, three forced fumbles and three interceptions. Another plus for Cowboys — and the reason special teams coordinator John Fassel was seen shooting in the draft room at draft time — is his special teams job, plus he’s started 32 of his last 33 games in the draft. Texas.

In his words: Overrated come to Texas safe and passed to linebacker, also sort of lining up as a pass-rusher. Quinn likes to move his players to different positions. “Anywhere, anywhere,” he said. Overrated. “She has a plan for me. He’s going to move me. Something like what I did in college, something like what you see now with defending Dallas, move many players, let the big ones in the space, the big ones outside the line. So I know Coach Quinn has a plan for me and I’m excited to work on whatever they need me to do.”

What’s next: In the first two days, the Cowboys filled the needs of defensive tackle, tight end and linebacker with blacksmith, Cleaner Yes Overrated. They go into day three of the draft with one pick in each of rounds 4 through 7. The running back could be at the top of the list, and when they get to the next rounds they’ll likely be looking to add a kicker as well.
