    2-Cent Mock: Writers Go WR-Heavy With Updated 7-Round Mock Draft

    Friday, April 13, 2018 5:04 PM CDT


    FRISCO, Texas – The NFL Draft is less than two weeks away as the Cowboys continue their draft meetings and finalize their preparation for the April 26-28 event here at AT&T Stadium.

    The writers of DallasCowboys.com have completed their second of three personalized mock drafts for all seven Cowboys picks, including No. 19 overall.

    Matt Linehan
    QB, Idaho Read
    Justin Lawler
    DE, SMU Read
    Christian DiLauro
    T, Illinois


    David's 2-Cent Draft:

    RD (PK) PLAYER POSITION SCHOOL
    1 (19) D.J. Moore WR Alabama
    2 (18) Josey Jewel LB Iowa
    3 (17) Terrell Edmunds S S Virginia Tech
    4 (16) Ito Smith RB Southern Mississippi
    4 (37) Scott Quessenberry OL UCLA
    5 (34) Micah Kiser LB Virginia
    6 (19) Poona Ford DT Texas
    6 (36) Arrion Springs CB Oregon
    6 (34) Logan Woodside QB Toledo
    7 (18) Marcus Baugh TE Ohio State


    David's Analysis:

    If I had to bet on it, I still think a linebacker is going to be the 19th overall pick. But with two weeks until the draft, I wanted to take a look at what an offensive draft would look like. One way or another, the Cowboys need to address the future of their receiver corps, and D.J. Moore would give them a physical and versatile playmaker. Linebacker is still a huge need, and I think Jewell is a readymade contributor at middle linebacker. From there, I’m strictly filling needs. Edmunds would fill out the safety depth chart and could potentially compete for playing time. The Cowboys need a third running back who can fill the third down role, and Smith can do that. Quessenberry can provide depth to the interior offensive line, while Kiser and Ford can do the same for their respective units. Like I said last time, I expect the Cowboys to pick up a developmental quarterback, and drafting Woodside would prevent them from getting into a free agency bidding war.

    Nick's 2-Cent Draft:

    RD (PK) PLAYER POSITION SCHOOL
    1 (19) Courtland Sutton WR SMU
    2 (18) Malik Jefferson LB Texas
    3 (17) Nyheim Hines RB NC State
    4 (16) D.J. Reed CB Kansas State
    4 (37) Ian Thomas TE Indiana
    5 (34) Joseph Noteboom T TCU
    6 (19) Trayvon Henderson S Hawaii
    6 (36) Tejan Koromo BYU BYU
    6 (34) P.J. Hall DT Sam Houston State
    7 (18) Matt Linehan QB Idaho

    Nick's Analysis:

    After having Payne in the last mock, I’ll switch to Sutton because I think he’s probably similar in what Dez Bryant brought to the team. Sutton has the big frame and catch ability in the red zone. He’s not as explosive, to me, but he can still get this team over the hump. I’ll stick with Jefferson, Hines and Thomas, although I moved the first two up a round. Hines is so dynamic, as his Thomas at his position. This might be a little more of an offensive draft than the Cowboys are willing to go. Don’t be surprised to see Linehan on this team, either drafted or as a free agent. He should be able to know his dad’s offense rather quickly.

    Bryan's 2-Cent Draft:

    RD (PK) PLAYER POSITION SCHOOL
    1 (19) Calvin Ridley WR Alabama
    2 (18) Josey Jewel LB Iowa
    3 (17) Tarvarius Moore S Southern Mississippi
    4 (16) Mike White QB Washington State
    4 (37) Cole Madison G West Virginia
    5 (34) Breeland Speaks DT Mississippi
    6 (19) Ito Smith RB Southern Mississippi
    6 (36) Kenny Young LB UCLA
    6 (34 Tejan Koroma C/G BYU
    7 (18) Justin Lawler DE SMU

    Bryan's Analysis:

    Even with all the Dez Bryant news, the front office still visited both Calvin Ridley, DJ Moore and James Washington as part of their 30 Visits. They have also worked out Courtland Sutton and DJ Chark. Plus they’ve signed Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson. There is clearly something up here. If the Cowboys want Ridley they will have to worry about the Ravens and Seahawks ahead of them. Ravens taking the player or Seahawks trading out of the pick. I love Jewel as a player. He’s a tackling machine as a MIKE. His playing speed is better than timed so this is a gamble on my part. They might not like him as much as I do. Taravius Moore is a true free safety that plays with outstanding range. They took a gamble on a quarterback three years ago in the 4th round - - Mike White should be talked about more. Cole Madison played tackle at Washington State but looks to be a better fit inside. Like how he plays on his feet. Breeland Speaks tape in 2016 was better than 2017. When he keeps his pad level down he can be hard to block. Ito Smith is a better Lance Dunbar but will need to improve his pass blocking. Kenny Young is a physical linebacker that runs well. Tejan Koromo is short but powerful. Justin Lawler is a local kid that has some pass rush ability off the edge.
    Rob's 2-Cent Draft:

    RD (PK) PLAYER POSITION SCHOOL
    1 (19) Rashaan Evans LB Alabama
    2 (18) Michael Gallup WR Colorado St.
    3 (17) Braden Smith G Auburn
    4 (16) Nyheim Hines RB NC State
    4 (37) Rashaan Gaulden S Tennessee
    5 (34) Tyler Conklin TE Central Michigan
    6 (19) Eddy Wilson DT Purdue
    6 (36) Riley Ferguson QB Memphis
    6 (34) Tre’ Williams LB Auburn
    7 (18) Christian DiLauro T Illinois

    Rob's Analysis:

    The Cowboys still need linebacker depth, even with the Joe Thomas signing and Jaylon Smith’s continued progression. I went with Vander Esch in my first mock, but who knows, maybe this is finally the year the Cowboys take a high pick on a Bama star. Evans is a big-time talent with range to run and make plays in a 4-3 scheme like Dallas’ system. The Cowboys have taken a closer look at some of the top receivers in this class, and Gallup has a nice combination of frame and speed for the next level. The Cowboys covered themselves at guard by signing Marcus Martin and re-signing Joe Looney, and they could always move La’el Collins back inside. But for a potential long-term solution, Smith is one of the better guard prospects in the draft who might have some tackle flexibility, too. Hines and Conklin would add more options for Dak Prescott in the passing game, and Gaulden is a versatile safety/corner prospect who played against top college competition. At the combine, Jerry Jones said the Cowboys would prefer to find another young backup quarterback over bringing in a veteran, and although they like Cooper Rush as Prescott’s primary reserve, maybe they take a flier in later rounds on someone like Ferguson, who has a big arm and put up big numbers at Memphis.

    Unless it's a trade down into the mid second I will make a scene, that's what Goodell gets for letting me win tickets to day 1

    I'm not big on any WRs in the first this year, this team needs bodies on defense. Nobody on defense I'm thrilled with at Dallas' position in the first either, I'd rather trade down and acquire some more picks.
