The 2022 NFL Draft came and went, so let’s predict some things involving the Dallas Cowboys.

Now that the Dallas Cowboys completed a largely forgettable NFL Draft when compared their usual attention-grabbing standards, there are things to predict about “America’s Team” heading into the heart of the NFL offseason.

No, don’t be stupid. Dallas is not getting a second NFL team, no matter how badly their mayor wants one. There are plenty of ways to spend someone else’s money more unproductively. Though the Cowboys have a tendency to overpay their own guys years before hitting free agency, they should have one of the better teams in the NFC. They must get to the NFC title bout or else.

Here are three things that without a bat of an eyelash are going to happen for Dallas this summer.

Dallas Cowboys: 3 bold predictions for offseason after 2022 NFL Draft

3. Jalen Tolbert will do his part in helping Dallas forget all about Amari Cooper

Even if the Cowboys’ 2022 NFL Draft was of the nondescript variety, outside of what former Tulsa offensive lineman Tyler Smith said at the podium about other people’s opinions that had Mike McCarthy in absolute stitches, Dallas did add to its receiver room by taking Jalen Tolbert in the third round out of South Alabama. He will do his part to help Dallas forget about Amari Cooper.

The two-time all-conference performer was utterly magnificent during his final season in Mobile. Tolbert took home Sun Belt Offensive Player of the Year last fall. Though he may draw comparisons to Michael Gallup coming out with a ton of promise out of a Group of Five school, he will help the Dallas receiving corps make do without its former overpaid and overrated wideout.

Tolbert will likely be the No. 3 wide receiver for Dallas behind CeeDee Lamb and Gallup in that order. Though Gallup is working his way back from injury, he got paid the big bucks to put up or shut up. With Lamb needing a huge season in year three out of Oklahoma, look for Tolbert to be wide open on several occasions when the Cowboys go with 11 personnel to Dak Prescott’s liking.

Dallas may not have drafted many big names, but Cowboys fans will know all about Tolbert soon.
