The Cowboys have taken some chances with their second-round picks in recent years. Some have worked. Some haven’t.

One of those, Randy Gregory, left for the Broncos this offseason, leaving a hole at defensive end opposite DeMarcus Lawrence. The team signed veteran Dante Fowler in free agency and have Dorance Armstrong back, but they needed more help.

The Cowboys used their second-round pick, No. 56 overall, on Ole Miss pass rusher Sam Williams.

Williams was suspended from the program in July 2020 before being reinstated. He earned first-team All-SEC honors last season with 12.5 sacks and 16 tackles for loss but also was penalized nine times.

He was a three-year starter at Ole Miss.

  1. First team all-SEC says it all. Best EDGE rusher in the toughest conference in college football. If you can get 12.5 sacks in the SEC you can play anywhere.

    Michael Sam led the SEC in sacks and was 1st team All-SEC

  3. The problem with the Cowboys ain’t the players.
    The problem with the Cowboys ain’t the coaches.
    The problem with the Cowboys is that Jerry Jones
    don’t know spit about coaching the Cowboys and
    he ain’t gonna let nobody else coach ’em neither.

    The only way the Dallas Cowboys are ever gonna
    get out of the second round of the playoffs is if
    the crew of the S.S. Minnow take Jerry Jones
    out on his yacht for a three hour cruise.
