After raising some eyebrows with the selections of UCF defensive tackle Trysten Hill and Penn State offensive guard Connor McGovern in the second and third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys hit a home run with an excellent pick on Day 3.
With the 128th overall pick, Dallas took Memphis running back/wide receiver Tony Pollard.
A speedy, electric runner who deputized as a No. 3 wide receiver and served as Darrell Henderson's backup, Pollard returned seven kickoffs for touchdowns, giving him almost unrivaled versatility.
While he did get slapped with the dreaded "jack of all trades, master of none" tag that pushes some further down the draft, there aren't many players with his electric style available this late.

After some question marks on Day 2, Dallas added some invaluable depth with Pollard in the fourth round. He can stand in for Zeke for a couple carries every game and become a dynamic returner.
