The 2021 NFL Draft is now under one week away. With cornerback or offensive tackle being the expected pick for the Dallas Cowboys at No. 10, could they entertain a player like Alabama WR Jaylen Waddle? Jaycee Horn had an interview with the club and made it very clear who he thinks the best corner in the draft is.
