Here is a 2021 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the Dallas Cowboys:
Round 1 (No. 12 overall, from 49ers through Dolphins and Eagles) - Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State: Dallas drops two spots after missing out on Jaycee Horn (Panthers) and Patrick Surtain II (Broncos) to.

Round 2 (44) - Kelvin Joseph, CB, Kentucky: And Dallas begins repairing last year's sieve-like pass defense, Joseph now paired outside with 2020 second-rounder Trevon Diggs. Joseph's exceptional athleticism should serve him well as he adapts to the NFL.

But apparently a more compelling case to reunite Burrow with his main weapon from LSU's 2019 title team, when Chase established himself as the best wideout in college football.
Round 3 (75) - Osa Odighizuwa, DT, UCLA: Could compete for a starting spot given state of Dallas' interior line. Odighizuwa notched 10½ sacks over his past three seasons and can get slippery in the gaps.

Here is a 2021 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the Houston Texans.Round 3 (No. 67 overall) - Davis Mills, QB, Stanford: Houston's first pick of this draft ... is a potential replacement for Deshaun Watson.
