Cowboys end final day of NFL Draft making 6 picks, most of any team
CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Dallas Cowboys added a linebacker, an offensive tackle, a wide receiver, a nose tackle, a safety and a guard in Day 3 of the 2021 NFL Draft.
After trading the No. 10 slot on day 1, the Cowboys became the team with the highest number of picks in this year’s draft with 11 total, ABC affiliate WFAA in Dallas reports.
The Cowboys skipped the offensive side of the ball on the first two days of the NFL Draft, instead focusing on the defense for their first six picks. On the final day of the draft, Dallas decided to add to their strength with a pass-catcher for the offense.
With the 179th pick in the fifth round, the Cowboys selected Simi Fehoko, a wide receiver out of Stanford.
Fehoko will compete for a role in the receiver room that is filled with star talent for the Cowboys. An older prospect at 23 years old, Fehoko should bring an intriguing skillset to the offense.
Kehoko stands at 6-feet-4-inches, weighs 227 pounds and has 4.43 speed. If there’s one thing that the Cowboys offense has missed from their wideouts, it’s elite speed. Dallas has one of the league’s best receiving trios in Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup, but they didn’t have anyone capable of taking the top off a defense.
The Utah native was a First Team All-Pac-12 receiver for the Cardinal and set school records for catches (16) and yards (230) against UCLA in his senior season. In his last two seasons at Stanford, Kehoko averaged 23.6 and 15.5 yards per catch, making him a big play waiting to happen.
Here’s a look at the six draft picks for day 3:
- Round 4, pick 115: Jabril Cox, linebacker, LSU
- Round 4, pick 138: Josh Ball, offensive tackle, Marshall
- Round 5, pick 179: Simi Fehoko, wide receiver, Stanford
- Round 6, pick 192: Quinton Bohanna, nose tackle, Kentucky
- Round 6, pick 227: Israel Mukuamu, safety, South Carolina
- Round 7, pick 238: Matt Farniok, guard, Nebraska
