Heading into this year’s NFL Draft, there have been a lot of options that have been thrown around for who the Dallas Cowboys could take in the first round.
At one point there was talk about Bijan Robinson replacing Ezekiel Elliott.
They could bring in an offensive lineman to bolster an aging unit that has a hole at left guard.
Linebacker and defensive tackle are also a couple of positions they could look to improve in the draft.
However, there are two other positions that the Cowboys are currently having a disagreement over for their first pick in the draft.
According to NFL Network’s Jane Slater, head coach Mike McCarthy wants the team to draft a tight end while defensive coordinator Dan Quinn wants a nickel corner.
Sounds like Dan Quinn wants a nickel corner and Mike McCarthy wants a tight end. Let’s see where this lands

Tight end is a position that has been one of the frontrunners for this pick for the Cowboys. They lost Dalton Schultz to free agency this offseason and don’t have a clear replacement.
There are also a couple of great options at the position in this draft. They could draft a new Dalton in Utah’s Dalton Kincaid or they could take Notre Dame’s Michael Mayer.
This draft also has a lot of talent at cornerback. Devon Witherspoon and Christian Gonzalez are both projected to be taken in the top 10. In the Cowboys’ range they could look at Joey Porter Jr or Deonte Banks.
Adding at either position would strengthen an already impressive unit for the Cowboys. They already have some impressive options in the passing game with CeeDee Lamb and Brandin Cooks. They also have Trevon Diggs at cornerback.
Whatever the Dallas Cowboys end up doing with their first round pick, it looks like one of their coaches isn’t going to be happy with the decision.
