Cowboys address receiving issues by drafting WR Michael Gallup with 81st pick

2018 NFL Draft Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch Selected 19th By Dallas Cowboys

Many people were thinking a wide receiver to replace Dez Bryant.

The Cowboys picked Williams with the No. 50 overall selection - one pick after NFC East rival Philadelphia traded up with Indianapolis to select South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert.

Offense (six players): Guard Connor Williams (second round); WR Michael Gallup (third round); TE Dalton Schultz (fourth round); QB Mike White (fifth round); WR Cedrick Wilson (sixth round); and RB Bo Scarbrough (seventh round). He joins a crowded tight end room in Dallas that still includes Witten, Geoff Swaim, Blake Jarwin and Rico Gathers. Gathers hasn't played a regular-season game and missed all of his second season after sustaining a concussion in training camp past year. "I think he will keep getting better". He isn't projected to be as prolific as a pass catcher as other tight ends in this draft, but he's a solid run blocker, and could make a difference in that area immediately.

Braden Holtby: In goal for Game 2
His sidekick, Jake Guentzel , who entered the night with seven goals in seven postseason games, was quiet and had just two shots. Subban tied it with a slap shot for Nashville's first power-play goal of the series at 5:04 of the second.


A consensus first-team All-America tackle as a sophomore, Williams declared for the draft after his junior season with the Longhorns.

STILL NEED: The Cowboys didn't draft a safety despite moving one of last season's starters, Byron Jones, back to cornerback. For the first time in the common draft era four quarterbacks were selected in the top 10.

When he declared for the draft in December, he wrote an essay thanking the bullies who tormented him when he was a child because he was overweight and had a speech impediment.
