Breaking: Cowboys Projected to Land Athletic 35-TD QB With ‘Big Arm’.

The Dallas Cowboys may be an ideal landing spot for one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the country.

As projected by CBS Sports’ Ryan Wilson in his 2025 NFL mock draft, Wilson predicts the Cowboys to select University of Alabama quarterback Jalen Milroe with the 26th overall pick in next year’s draft.

“Milroe is one of the best athletes in this class, and if he continues to make the same strides in 2024 that we saw over the second half of the 2023 campaign, he could find his way into the first round,” writes Wilson.

Jalen Milroe Emerged as Crimson Tide’s Next Great QB in 2023

Based upon Wilson’s projections in his mock draft, Milroe would be the sixth quarterback selected in the 2025 NFL draft.

The 21-year-old Milroe excelled in his first season as a starter, leading the Alabama Crimson Tide to a 12-1 record in the regular season. Milroe’s productive first season as starter — 23 passing touchdowns, 531 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns — led to the Crimson Tide making a surprise College Football Playoff appearance despite dropping outside of the Top 10 in the AP poll during the middle of the season.

The 6-foot-2 Milroe is an interesting prospect because he’s considered an athlete at quarterback. One NFL scout compared Milroe to former quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who once led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance and broke the single-game postseason rushing record (181 yards).

“Kid just keeps getting better and better. Honestly he kinda reminds me of (Colin) Kaepernick a little bit. Big, athletic, fast, big arm, and big plays,” the scout told Bleacher Report’s Jordan Schultz in November .
