Draft Show Recap: Simmons A Possibility Now?


FRISCO, Texas – Thursday means another episode of "The Draft Show."

After a week away, the crew got back together for another hour of draft talk, and much of the conversation centered on the quickly-approaching NFL Combine.

More specifically, the first segment of Thursday's show featured a spirited debate about Louisiana Tech defensive end Jaylon Ferguson, who had his invite to the Combine rescinded earlier in the week. This prompted a long conversation about what the purpose of the event is supposed to be, as well as how and why it has evolved from humble beginnings to must-see TV.

Here are some other highlights from the show:

  • Another big segment of the show was the conversation surrounding Mississippi State defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons. In addition to his off-field baggage, Simmons tore his ACL during a workout this week, effectively sidelining him for the 2019 season. This naturally prompted the question: originally considered a first-round pick, does he now become a possibility for the Cowboys at pick No. 58?
  • Dane Brugler and Bryan Broaddus also talked about intriguing mid-round cornerback prospects, as the Cowboys have two veteran cornerbacks entering contract years.
  • Speaking of cornerbacks, Dane and Bryan compared two of the top corners in this year's class in Vanderbilt's Joejuan Williams and LSU's Greedy Williams.
  • The guys also talked about the Cowboys' holes on the roster and how they can best address them in free agency prior to the draft.
