    Cowboys 7-Round Mock Draft: Dallas Double Dips At DE

    Yesterday I dropped my first 2017 first-round mock draft for all 32 teams. Things didn't fall exactly the way I would've liked in order for the to come away with a “war daddy” , but they were able to upgrade the with their first-round selection. Today, I thought I would continue with of the rest the picks through all seven rounds.

    I personally think the Dallas Cowboys will go heavy on defense, so that's what I decided to do in this mock draft as well. Continue reading below to see how I think things could shake out for the Cowboys after the completion of the 2017 .

    [get_helmet team=”dal” face=”r” align=”” size=”md”]

    R1/28 – DAL: Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State

    Has prototypical size for an NFL CB and would likely step and as a day one starter on the outside for the Cowboys. He is scheme diverse, but needs to become more physical in run support.

    [get_helmet team=”dal” face=”r” align=”center” size=”md”]

    R2/28 – DAL: , S, NC State

    Jones started two years as a strong before moving to his final year at NC State. He has the prototypical size teams look for in their safeties and would be a day one starter next to on the back end of the Cowboys defense.

    [get_helmet team=”dal” face=”r” align=”center” size=”md”]

    R3/28 – DAL: , DE, Illinois

    Talented DE who already has experience in 's 4-3 after playing under Lovie Smith at Illinois. Played better in 2015, but dropped weight in 2016, which seemed to affect his play. Would likely compete with to start opposite as a rookie.

    [get_helmet team=”dal” face=”r” align=”center” size=”md”]

    R4/26 – DAL: , WR, Ohio State

    Big/physical WR that fits the parameters the Cowboys look for in their outside wide receivers. Wasn't utilized much at Ohio State and is still learning the position, but has the skill set to develop into a #1 WR.

    [get_helmet team=”dal” face=”r” align=”center” size=”md”]

    R6/27 – DAL: Joe Mathis, DE, Washington

    Talented pass rusher that has some off the field concerns that need to be addressed. Also has struggled with injuries. prone? Cowboys have targeted Chris Peterson coached players in the past: , , and DeMarcus Lawrence.

    [get_helmet team=”dal” face=”r” align=”center” size=”md”]

    R7/10 – DAL: T.J. Logan, RB, North Carolina

    Shifty 3rd down/change of pace back that will take over 's role. Can contribute on as a return specialist as well. Is a natural pass catcher, but needs to work on ball security.

    [get_helmet team=”dal” face=”r” align=”center” size=”md”]

    R7/28 – DAL: Blair Brown, LB, Ohio

    A little bit undersized, but is a good sideline to sideline LB that shows good instincts to quickly diagnose and attack. Would provide depth to the LB position and contribute on special teams as a rookie. Has potential to become a starter.

    The Dallas Cowboys shore their with their first two draft picks by selecting Gareon Conley and Josh Jones. Both are immediate upgrades over what the Cowboys lost in and will be fixtures in the secondary for years to come.

    Dawuane Smoot and Joe Mathis have both proven that they are capable of getting after the QB in college, but the NFL is a different beast. Expect Rod Marinelli to get the best out of them. Smoot and Mathis will compete with second-year DE Charles Tapper to start opposite DeMarcus Lawrence in 2017.

    Noah Brown could make expendable, but he probably still needs a year to develop his skill set more before becoming a consistent contributor. He has the size, speed, and skill set to develop into a #1 WR for the Cowboys and could be used as a target as a rookie.

    T.J. Logan and Blair Brown are both valuable depth players that will make their living on special teams as rookies. Both players are talented enough to see snaps at RB and LB as rookies and could carve out a nice role with the Cowboys for years to come.

    How do you feel about these draft picks for the Dallas Cowboys?

    This actually doesn’t look to bad if it all falls this way

    Brian Martin

    I would mind if this was the way things turned out.

    Assassin

    Havent seen too much on most of these guys except for Smoot. Like him a lot in 3rd.

    Unless we pick up at TE in FA or the Cowboys know more about Rico than the public does, we may need to go TE at some point.

    Brian Martin

    I agree that TE may need to be addressed at some point in the draft.

    Assassin

    Also, wouldnt mind taking a flyer on Chip Kelly, the Mississippi QB if he’s around in the 7th. One of those too much talent to ignore, but a head case/medical issue folks.

    Brian Martin

    I think you meant Chad Kelly, not Chip Kelly. I agree, but you might be able to pick him up as an undrafted free agent. That would be the ideal scenario.

    Assassin

    I suspect he will be someone’s late round pick. No sooner than the 5th though. Medical issues are a concern. Plus he’s a bit of a headcase. If I were an NFL GM, I would ask his teammates about playing with him, if they would follow him and if they would want to be on another team with him. QB has to be a leader.

    The “good” thing about his headcase stuff is that they are all aggression issues. I would take that over drugs anyday

    All the talent in the world. Decent TD to INT numbers. Jim Kelly’s nephew. Good bloodlines

    Brian Martin

    The only reason I said that the Cowboys might prefer to take them as an undrafted free agent is because I think they may be starting to move on from taking these so-called “troubled” players. It all depends on where he falls on their draft board. They may have somebody still there in the late part of the draft they like more.

    Assassin

    I know where you’re going. But I also remember when we moved away from any ‘head cases’ back in the White House days. Doomed us to some really mediocre to bad years. I think there has to be a balance. Just think if we had taken Honey Badger instead of taking him off our boards as a headcase

    Brian Martin

    I’m not disagreeing with you. I just think it’s going to depend on how their board sets up.

    Assassin

    Ran a Fanspeak Mock, here are mine;

    28: R1P28 DL CARL LAWSON AUBURN
    60: R2P28 CB CHIDOBE AWUZIE COLORADO
    92: R3P28 LB T.J. WATT WISCONSIN
    133: R4P26 S MARCUS MAYE FLORIDA
    211: R6P27 TE PHAROH BROWN OREGON
    228: R7P10 WR RICKY SEALS-JONES TEXAS A&M
    246: R7P28 OT CLINT VAN HORN MARSHALL

    Brian Martin

    I could live with that

    Terry

    TJ watt won’t last that long

    Assassin

    Probably not. But you take what’s given to you. This was from the Fanspeak Mock. Pretty cool little free mock tool. I like it as I start to understand who players are that arent the bigger names.

    Assassin

    I got one right!

    dallas1966

    I would shout for joy, if this was the way the draft fell for the Cowboys.

    The only exception, I would select Marcus Williams, Safety, Utah, over Jones.

    It’s time to end the 21 years, in the wilderness.

    In McClay, I trust!!

    Brian Martin

    I wouldn’t mind either of those selections. I’m a little higher on Jones because of his versatility to play SS or FS

    Harold Keith Wiseman

    In the draft ,I would draft Obi in the1st,DE,,DT in the 2nd,cb,in the 3rd/4th,6th /7th DL

    Brian Martin

    There are a few safeties I like better, but I could live with that

    Geezy_Gaming

    Im really against not going DE in the 1st round. But this mock is fantastic and if it went this way I will be very happy.

    Brian Martin

    I think it’s going to be tough to find a DE in the first round at 28.
