Dallas Cowboys use fifth-round pick on QB Mike White

How does Vander Esch fit in Dallas? He's truly the definition of a three-down linebacker who can run, cover and tackle.

In his senior season, Gallup caught a school-record 100 passes for 1,413 yards and seven touchdowns.

His pre-draft projections generally slotted Gallup as a third-round pick, though some analysts had him in the second round and others in the latter rounds. The Cowboys' most notable receivers are free agent signing Allen Hurns along with Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams.

I personally would have preferred one of the guards in Isaiah Wynn or Will Hernandez to get the running game back in place, but the front office has a plan for the player they chose. The longer Sutton remains available Friday night, the bigger the chance the Cowboys make a move to get the local product.

Reed was a two-time First Team All-Big 12 pick as a defensive back.

"Michael Gallup at 6'1", 200lbs was the Rams top target the past two seasons.

"I believe it is all about a want-to", said Covington, who started his college career as a quarterback. Dallas is of course also building towards the future with such a young roster, as the likes of Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson have high ceilings to go with their present traits. If he makes the team, it will give the Cowboys depth at the linebacker position and a player they can count on for special teams. He's also a tremendous kick returner, averaging nearly 24 yards per kick return.

As mentioned, the Cowboys draft class features ready-made players for a team looking to win now.

Over on the sidelines, former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore will be coaching the quarterbacks in his first season since retiring.

The problems that I have with the pick are that you had a better player in Alabama linebacker Rashaan Evans who could step in as your starter day one.
