    Cowboys Draft: Mayock Mocks Sutton to Dallas, Passes on Ridley, Landry

    One of the most exciting moments NFL fans wait for during the Draft process is Draft Analyst Mike Mayock's . Widely recognized as one of the best in the business, he only presents one simulation per year and usually presents what many consider “hot takes.” Someone like Mayock tends to have pretty good “insider” information and gives the Draft community things to think about hours before the event.

    For instance, this time around he has QB Josh Rosen falling all the way to the 15th overall pick and  C Frank Ragnow in the to the Bengals (something basically no one was talking about).

    Of course, the will forever be unpredictable and most will be thrown away usually after the second or third pick. It's just the way it works. Every year, media members give it their best shot, knowing deep down they'll be wrong come Draft Day.

    Heck, Mike Mayock was right in only five picks last year! Even still, these are great exercises to get to know the prospects and the teams' most pressing needs.

    Having said that, the pick in Mayock's 2018 Mock Draft sure was a surprise.

    The player himself isn't really that much of a surprise. People have been mocking at 19 for Dallas many times over the past month. What was surprising about the pick was the fact that many other talented prospects were still on the board.

    Boston College DE may find his way into the top 15 despite being injured most of his last season in . However, in this mock, Mayock has him sliding all the way to the at 20.

    The Cowboys don't need a DE urgently, but if Landry is there, they need to consider adding a promising RDE to have one of the best defensive lines in the country with Lawrence and Irving. But okay, it won't be as shocking simply because it isn't that big of a need. D-Law just had a breakout season and may progress into a quality starting RDE after a season of experience.

    Passing on to take Courtland Sutton is the most surprising thing for me in this mock. I mean, if it's between DJ Moore and Sutton, I won't be surprised at all to see the SMU product be the pick, but Ridley at 19 is amazing value.

    I get it, he's not an “X” receiver and he's 24 years old. But hey, so what?

    He naturally gets open, he's an amazing route runner and out of every receiver available, he'll be the most ready and will make the most impact from . The guy would provide a potential best-friend for years to come.

    Sutton, on the other hand, will take some time to fully develop, perhaps a season or more.  I think this needs a guy who can ball out as soon as possible. This is a contending team. It's time to add players who will create a big impact since 2018. I have trouble believing Sutton is that guy.

    However, Mike Mayock could be right on with his prediction. The Cowboys have shown a tremendous amount of interest on Sutton and (depending on who's still on the board) would be anything but a surprise if he's the name in the card the Cowboys send for the Commissioner to read.

    Anyway, we're only a few hours away from knowing what actually happens. Happy Draft Day, !
