The NFL draft will be here before we know it. Now that Free Agency has settled down, team needs have come into focus. That could mean only one thing – it’s time for another mock draft! But rather than us sitting back and throwing darts at the wall, we thought we’d let you join in the fun. We’ll roll through the draft order and give each team choices based on team needs and the best players available and you’ll vote on the picks for each team. On with the countdown…
The Dallas Cowboys finished another completely average and dissappointing season under infamous general manager Jerry Jones. Over the course of the year, these Cowboys blew many leads and lost many winnable games thanks to a bunch of chokers. However, they have positive sides. Dez Bryant is a monster at receiver, Tony Romo is a decent quarterback (unless it’s a close game), and the running game was not bad last year. Their defense, on the other hand, is an embarrassment. That is why, like the beloved Bears, the Cowboys draft will center around the defensive side of the ball. However, this years Dallas offseason has been filled with questionable moves, putting it lightly.
QB- Brandon Weeden
DT Henry Melton
LB Will Harring
DE Jeremy Mincey
DT Terrell McClain
It also should be noted that former Bears defensive coordinator, Rod Marinelli, now has the DC job for Dallas.
K Dan Bailey
P Chris Jones
DE DeMarcus Ware
WR Miles Austin
C Phil Costa
DE Everette Brown
G Ray Dominguez
DT Corvey Irvin
G Jeff Olson
Defensive End- Demarcus Ware is a once in a generation player who still has a lot left in the tank. The fact that the Cowboys let him go is appalling to me. The Cowboys will need to try to find an adequate fill in, which is a tall order.
Linebacker- Sean Lee is good, but he can’t do it all alone. The Cowboys need another guy who can help fill holes against the run.
Wide Receiver- Miles Austin was a good target when healthy. The Cowboys can definitely use a new one to whom Romo can attempt to throw passes without having them intercepted.
Safety- The Cowboys need someone to stop big plays, as they gave up far too many last season. Just ask Alshon Jeffery.
