  • 2018 NFL Draft Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch Selected 19th By Dallas Cowboys

With the 137th overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select ...

They ended up having to tout their tight ends as well when ESPN reported on the draft's second day that Jason Witten was planning to retire after 15 seasons to join the "Monday Night Football" crew as lead analyst.

STILL NEED: The Cowboys didn't draft a safety despite moving one of last season's starters, Byron Jones, back to cornerback. For the first time in the common draft era four quarterbacks were selected in the top 10.

Some teams projected the 6-foot-5, 296-pound Williams as a guard, but the Cowboys could keep him at tackle. The only other issue could be 33-inch arms, which is a bit on the short side for a tackle in the NFL.

Williams didn't care which position he'd play: "Wherever the coach wants me to play, I'm playing".

Jason Witten's Retirement Will Hit the Cowboys Hard
Witten was drafted by the Cowboys in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft after a college career at Tennessee . There are few players who could provide the excellence Witten supplied for 15 years.

Williams was at the draft in nearby Arlington, just south of his home in Coppell.

In two seasons, Gallup racked up 176 catches, 2,690 yards, and 21 touchdowns.

"I'm not really coming to replace anybody", he said from his home in Monroe, Georgia.

Trades (two): Sent sixth-round pick to Los Angeles Rams for WR Tavon Austin; sent WR Ryan Switzer to Oakland Raiders for DT Jihad Ward. The interior of the defensive line is arguably the biggest need, depending on the view of life without Witten.
