Draft Strategy and Contract Negotiations: Insights into the Dallas Cowboys’ Decision-Making

“Will the Cowboys seek to increase their draft picks or stick with their current selections?”

Mike: It’s unlikely the Cowboys will engage in any trades before the draft. They’re in a favorable position with their first-round pick, likely to see quality offensive line prospects falling to them due to the early runs on quarterbacks, wide receivers, and pass rushers.

However, if both offensive and defensive line options abound when the Cowboys are on the clock, they might consider trading down for more draft capital, enhancing their maneuverability on Day 2. Yet, it’s improbable they’ll pursue additional picks before the draft.

Brandon: The only feasible scenario for Dallas to acquire more picks would be through trading down during the draft. Given their current resource constraints, it’s probable that they’ll make all their selections without trading for any players with their initial three picks. With pick No. 24, they’re in a prime position to secure a future franchise left tackle, especially considering Tyron Smith’s uncertain status for 2024. Dak Prescott’s leverage regarding his contract extension is significant, but recent cap increases somewhat diminish it. While Prescott could opt for a team-friendly deal to bolster talent acquisition and pursue a Super Bowl, the transient nature of NFL careers means players often prioritize maximizing earnings. Ultimately, the decision hinges on individual priorities.

“What should the Cowboys do with Michael Gallup?”

Mike: Gallup’s performance since his ACL injury hasn’t matched his previous level of play, particularly in terms of explosiveness. With minimal impact last season and a significant cap hit, it’s pragmatic for the Cowboys to consider moving on from him to save costs.

Brandon: The decision regarding Gallup is challenging. While he showcased promise early in his career, his recent underperformance raises questions about his future with the team. Financially, the Cowboys could benefit from releasing him, but Prescott’s potential influence on roster decisions adds complexity. Gallup’s standout showing in the Wild Card game offers a glimmer of hope, but uncertainties remain. While there’s a chance he stays for another year, there’s also a likelihood of his departure, with the scale tipping slightly towards the latter.
