Analyzing Chris Trapasso’s 7-round Mock Draft for the Dallas Cowboys

writer Chris Trapasso for CBSSports recently dropped his complete 7-round 2020 NFL Mock Draft, and being the curious person I am I decided to take a look to see who he selected for the . To be completely honest, I really liked what I found out.

I don't know if it's true or not, but Chris Trapasso must be a Dallas Cowboys fan. He hit several homeruns with his selections and I think a lot of would agree. But, let's not dillydally anymore. Below is Trapasso's picks for the Cowboys and my personal analysis about each selection.

Chris Trapasso's Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft

Round 1, Pick 17 – Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama

Analysis: I don't think anybody can argue with Chris Trapasso selecting here for the Dallas Cowboys. McKinney is an excellent player who not only fits a need on the backend of the Cowboy , but upgrades it as well. The only questionable thing I can think of here is the fact he passed up on both and DT . Would the Cowboys do the same?

Round 2, Pick 51 – Noah Igbinoghene, CB, Auburn

Analysis: Chris Trapasso once again addresses a need for the Dallas Cowboys with their second-round pick in former Auburn CB . I'm actually a big fan of this pick because I have Igbinoghene as my Top-5 CB in this year's draft class. He's a former WR turned CB and is still learning the position, but his physicality and athleticism are top-notch. Plus he brings the added value as a returner on .

Round 3, Pick 82 – Davon Hamilton, DT, Ohio State

Analysis:  is another excellent selection for the Dallas Cowboys by Chris Trapasso. He's not only one of the big bodied, space eating defensive tackles have been hankering for, but he has surprising pass rushing ability from the interior as well. His addition would help free up on the outside and help keep and clean to make plays behind him.

Round 4, Pick 123 – Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame

Analysis: I'm starting to think Chris Trapasso has been reading my Dallas Cowboys . is somebody I've mocked to the Cowboys as well. I love the mismatches he creates in the . He can be utilized as a big slot, an outside WR, a weapon, or as a move TE in the passing game. His addition would allow OC to get really creative with the Cowboys aerial attack.

Round 5, Pick 164 – Dalton Keene, TE, Virginia

Analysis:  is someone I had to go back and study after the performance he put on at the . He's currently my 10th-ranked TE in this year's draft class and could challenge – if re-signed/tendered – for the starting gig this . He's an excellent weapon in the passing game, but still needs to grow and develop as an in-line blocker.

Round 5, Pick 179 – James Smith-Williams, EDGE, NC State

Analysis: James Smith-Williams is an interesting selection here by Chris Trapasso. Smith-Williams shows good upper body strength and handles himself well against power and the run, but numerous has hindered his production/development. He tested well at the NFL Combine proving his athleticism, and if he can stay healthy he could be worth developing.

Round 7, Pick 231 – Ke'Shawn Vaughn, RB, Vanderbilt

Analysis: I don't know if the Dallas Cowboys will use a draft pick on a RB with and already in the mix, but Ke'Shawn Vaughn provides good value at this point in the draft. I personally think he's a mid-round selection, so he may be too good to pass up here. He already has a pro-ready build and he's tough as nails to bring down when he has the ball in his hands.

Overall, I think Chris Trapasso did an excellent job with his selections for the Dallas Cowboys. I'd personally be happy if this is the way things turned out. I think he hit some homeruns with his first four picks, while also adding some solid depth who should be able to contribute as rookies in the mid-to-late rounds as well. I don't know about you, but I'd sign off on this.
