After selecting stud LB Micah Parsons with their first pick, Dallas addressed the glaring weakness at CB selecting Kelvin Joseph from Kentucky with their second round selection. Joseph is an interesting prospect who will take time to develop but has long term upside as a starting boundary corner.
While not the day one starter the Cowboys had been hoping to land in the first round, Joseph amassed 36 tackles in his two years at Kentucky, along with 4 interceptions and a pass break up. He allowed 28 reception on 50 targets while giving up 4 touchdowns.
Joseph is still very raw having had just 394 coverage snaps at Kentucky, but at 6’1″ and 192-pounds he has good size for a perimeter corner.
KELVIN JOSEPH MAY TAKE TIME TO DEVELOP
Draft Network had this to say about Kelvin Joseph, “Kelvin Joseph is a long perimeter cornerback prospect who should have the opportunity to develop into a starting outside option for a team. Joseph, who was an early entree into the 2021 NFL Draft, has the kind of length that is very popular right now in the NFL game and has been exposed to a number of different roles throughout the course of his career.“
