2017 Cowboys Mock Draft: 7-Round Pre-Combine Edition

2017 Cowboys Mock Draft: 7-Round Pre-Combine EditionRound 1 (28th overall): David Njoku, TE, Miami

I know I'm probably going to catch a lot of flak for choosing to go with a in the for the in this , but this pick was all about taking the best player available.

might be the top-ranked tight end in the 2017 draft class, but is certainly in the conversation as being just as good.

At 6'4″, 245, Njoku has prototypical size you look for in a tight end in the . His skill set allows him to be split out as a receiving TE, but he is also more than capable of holding his own as an in-line blocker.

Njoku probably won't be a starter in his first year with the Cowboys since is still playing at a relatively high level. But, as much as the uses two TEs, he will see plenty of playing time and eventually become Witten's successor.
