Regarding the Cowboys' , they need a defensive that will not only get to opposing quarterbacks but also stuff runs consistently. Regardless of what does with the position, and knowing isn't going anywhere, drafting an prospect should be at the top of his .

As for defensive tackles, there are plenty of possibilities in the second round. The Cowboys will also be in prime position to pick up a in the .

3 Round Cowboys Mock Draft

1st Round-Pick 24, Trevor Penning, OT

would be a steal if he's available at number 24. While technically speaking, Penning is a college tackle and projects to be the same in the NFL, his upside would be too much to pass up in the . You could have him slide into the interior as he possesses an impressive frame, standing at six-foot-seven and weighing in at 330 pounds.

With that size comes noteworthy length and long arms, which he uses to pulverize smaller defenders. The man can literally handle defensive linemen with one arm. One reason he would excel as either a tackle or guard is his ability to burst through to the defense's second level, clearing running lanes along the way.

Penning's raw strength and power should be enough to warrant attention from Jones if he's there when the Cowboys make their pick in the first round.

2nd Round-Pick 56, Phidarian Mathis, DT

The Cowboys need to generate more pressure from their 's interior. With no real premier talent in the trenches, Jones would be doing himself a favor by drafting from Alabama.

Standing at six-foot-four and weighing 312 pounds, Mathis is ready to come into the NFL and dominate from the outset. His natural frame and imposing size will help him be a serious run-stopper right away. On top of that, Mathis has plenty of strength to go along with his build, and while he's not the quickest off the line, his athleticism allows him to outwork blockers.

With the right and patience as he learns to read NFL offenses, Mathis could develop into a disruptive force for the Cowboys.

3rd Round-Pick 88, John Metchie III, WR

The Cowboys and Jones could end up having several question marks at the wide receiver position. What exactly does the future hold for and Michael Gallup? In the event that Jones plans to move on from both of them, a wide receiver in the third round makes sense.

Drafting means that the Cowboys go back-to-back with picks from the Crimson Tide. With his downfield speed, Metchie should be able to provide an offensive spark. NFL will have a hard time keeping up with the speedster, and this ability to create separation and open up the field will be invaluable for Prescott.

However, Metchie isn't just all flash; he also has some precise route-running in his arsenal. What makes Metchie that much more of an interesting prospect is his ability to dominate on the slant route, a truly versatile offensive weapon.

Not bad but Metchie not making it to the 3rd rd. What’s crazy is Jameson Williams stole his thunder after being 4th on buckeye wr depth chart and put up the numbers at Bama. But the 3 in front of him weren’t nothing to frown at. Olave, Wilson, and njigba. Too many mouths to feed.

If Jerry and Stephen do end up being stupid enough to get rid of Amari Cooper then WR will end up being our number one need in the draft!! There’s no way we can go into next season with just Ceedee Lamb and Simi Fehoko!! Ceedee Lamb being the only receiver with experience and Fehoko was so bad that he was passed up on the depth chart by Malik Turner, and he was a healthy scratch through most of the season!! So if Cooper does get cut or traded then we will need to go receiver in the 1st round!! And even if we do keep Cooper, I don’t think drafting a tackle in the 1st round is a good idea, especially one that is projected to be a tackle in the NFL too!! A guard and center are our biggest needs right now, so if we’re gonna draft a linemen in the 1st round then the best players to get would be either Kenyon Green or Zion Johnson!! Both of them have versatility and can play about any position on the offensive line especially Kenyon Green!! Now as far as the 2nd round goes, if we are gonna draft a DT, we need to draft one that can stop the run!! Phidarian Mathis is a good option, but I think Travis Jones will be a better option!! Standing at 6 foot 5 and weighing 333 pounds, he is a monster!! And his specialty is stopping the run!! He just needs to improve his technique as a pass rusher, but right now all we need is somebody that can clog the lanes and stop the run and that is exactly what Travis Jones can do!! And in the 3rd round we will need LB help, the only player we have is Micah Parsons, everybody else is free agents or were injured and didn’t get any experience “Jabril Cox”!! And even if Cox does make it as a starter for us we’ll still need depth!! So if LB wasn’t addressed in the first or 2nd rounds then we will need to get one in the 3rd round!! And if they are there in the 3rd round I’d like to get Christian Harris, Chad Muma or even Leo Chenal!!

My 3 round mock draft would look like this….
R1. CB. Roger McCreary
R2. LB. Christian Harris, Chad Muma or Leo Chenal whichever one is there
R3. G. Jamaree Sayler or Ed Ingram

The reason I want a corner in the 1st round is cause we didn’t get to get one like we wanted last year, and even though Kelvin Joseph showed flashes in his limited time he played, I still don’t trust him yet, and Anthony Brown has been with us for 5 or 6 years now and this past season was the best he had, and he wasn’t even that good, so I don’t trust him to be on the outside again either!! And in the 2nd round I chose LB cause obviously we need help there with Neal and LVE being free agents!! And in the 3rd round I chose another need, with Connor Williams being a free agent and Connor McGovern already proving that he can’t play left guard, we need somebody that can come in and play left guard right away, and I think Sayler or Ingram can be that player!!
