Post-draft Cowboys moving on without Bryant, maybe Witten

Posted May 02, 2018

For the first time in the common draft era four quarterbacks were selected in the top 10. They did add a possible replacement for Dez Bryant in Colorado State receiver Michael Gallup.

After addressing the defensive side of the ball with their first of two fourth rounders, the Dallas Cowboys used their compensatory pick on a tight end.

ANALYSIS: A former offensive lineman in high school, Schultz is a balanced tight end that fills the void that Dallas lost when James Hanna retired last week due to a lingering knee injury.

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.

But Milan Skriniar turned the ball into his own net after 87 minutes with Gonzalo Higuain heading in the victor two minutes later. That result shrunk Juve's lead to just one point with four games remaining, and two tough trips to Roma and Inter still to come.

Some teams projected the 6-foot-5, 296-pound Williams as a guard, but the Cowboys could keep him at tackle.

Williams was at the draft in nearby Arlington, just south of his home in Coppell.

ESPN reported Friday that Witten was planning to retire to join the network, but Jerry Jones said the franchise leader in games, catches and yards receiving hadn't made a decision and wanted the weekend to think about it.

Trades (two): Sent sixth-round pick to Los Angeles Rams for WR Tavon Austin; sent WR Ryan Switzer to Oakland Raiders for DT Jihad Ward.
