2020 NFL Draft: Predicting the Top 5 Prospects by Position for the Cowboys

It’s hard to believe, but the 2020 NFL Draft season is upon us. The collegiate season is all but over with the exception of a few bowl games and the NFL isn’t far behind. Sadly, there are only two more regular-season games plus the playoffs to go before it’s over. But when one season ends another begins, meaning the draft season is as close to being in full swing as possible.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in full draft mode since the Dallas Cowboys embarrassing loss to the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving. I’ll admit I had a hard time seeing the Cowboys as a playoff team, or if they were being anything more than a one and done. My tune may be changing a little this week after their impressive win over the Los Angeles Rams, but that still doesn’t impact the eye I have on the future.

The majority of Cowboys Nation will be solely focused on the Week 16 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles and the playoff spot that hangs in the balance, and rightfully so, but I wanted to draw your attention elsewhere. That’s why decided to share with all of you my top five prospects by position for the Dallas Cowboys in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft. These rankings will surely change between now and draft day, but it gives you an idea of who you might want to keep an eye on.
