    The Draft Network simulator does not have compensatory picks, so just includes the Cowboys 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 7th round picks

    Pitts is an absolute weapon at Tight End and would give the Cowboys an embarrassment of riches for whoever is playing Quarterback in 2021. At 6'5" and 231 lbs., he can line up as a traditional inline TE or out wide, and is matchup nightmare. As far as utilization, think of him like George Kittle. Holland is in the Honey Badger/Minkah Fitzpatrick mold of nickel/slot defender. In his first two years he has 9 INT and 10 Passes Defended. He likely starts at Strong Safety but his strength is his ability to line up all over the secondary. Rumph II is a bit light (225 lbs.) for a defensive lineman, but he has a great get-off, is versatile, and is technically sound (his father is a longtime college coach and was recently hired by the Texans). Davis is huge (6'5" & 355 lbs). and is probably not going to be available at pick 122 when the 2021 Draft comes around. Like a lot of tall defensive lineman, he plays too tall when he gets tired. If Kirby Smart and the rest of the Georgia staff can improve his conditioning and pass-rushing, he will be a problem. As he is, he's a powerful player who demands double teams in run blocking. Speaking of players who won't be available, keep an eye on this sleeper Allie Green IV. The Draft Network hasn't seen the light yet and still has him listed at Safety. In watching 2020 Cowboys draft pick Reggie Robinson highlights, this former high school basketball star kept flashing (watch the Michigan State game).

    I’ll take this draft but don’t see Holland dropping that far.

    Agreed.

    Depending on Jarwin, I kind of doubt TE is really in play in the first round. I could see Holland going there though.

    I like S Jevon Holland.

    SS traits but can cover slot WRs.

    Needs to add about 5 pounds of muscle.

    Yep, he seems to be in that Slot Safety mold of Honey Badger, Budda Baker, Lamarcus Joyner.

    The value of the SS position to NFL had dropped off in the modern pass-happy era; however, offenses in the last few years have starting targeting the SS on many defenses as a weak-link in pass defense.
    - That has bumped up the value of the players that fit the modern era profile for Strong Safeties.
    - It's a much bigger issue for some schemes than others.
    - I think it's not as difficult to find Safeties for Mike Nolan's defense as it was for the previous style of defense; however, the Honey Badger type of SS improves any modern defense as compared to the Barry Church style of SS.

    Team's that play single-high have basically just started using big CB types at FS which is easier to find than the "Slot Safety" types.
    - Thornhill is a basically a big CB that has enough intelligence/instincts to play FS.
