Did the Dallas Cowboys slip up and get the 2024 NFL Draft pick?

The Dallas Cowboys certainly still have some work to do to get their offense in a good spot before the beginning of the 2024 NFL Season, and a huge draft steal could help them get there. No one is talking about this enough, and it’s odd. The Cowboys are always the rear end of any football jokes, and them agreeing to bring back Ezekiel Elliott has only made other NFL fans joke even more.

Elliott simply is not a viable, starting-caliber running back anymore, so the Cowboys bringing him back seems to be only because it’s a nice homecoming story. Right now, their RB room features Elliott, Rico Dowdle, Deuce Vaughn, and Royce Freeman. It might honestly be the worst RB room in the NFL, but Dallas did nab a very good, Day 1 starter all the way in the third round, and he fills a huge position of need.

Kansas State’s Cooper Beebe was taken in the third round and is surely already one of the five-best OL players on the Cowboys. Check out his draft profile from NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein:

Not only is Beebe an extremely powerful interior player, I love the NFL-comp that Zierlein attached to Beebe. He compares Beebe to Kevin Zeitler, who has been one of the best and most consistent guards in the NFL for over a decade. The Cowboys OL actually turned into a weakness this offseason, but with them taking both Tyler Guyton and Cooper Beebe, Dallas seems to be in a strong spot.

And I would not be shocked if Cooper Beebe quickly became a household name for the Cowboys during his rookie season.
