The Cowboys are in need of a solid linebacker and if Trotter jr manages to make it to them in the second-round he is a must-draft. He is exactly what they need to further shore up their defense for a lengthy playoff run.

It’s entirely possible that Trotter Jr could find himself in the first round come draft day, but regardless of when he goes off the board, he is one of the best linebackers in this class.
