Cowboys Mock Draft: 2 Different Simulators, 2 Different Outcomes

The Dallas Cowboys have done an outstanding job of filling holes with some cost-effective so far in , which should allow them two approach the 2019 without any glaring “needs”. This should free them up to take the best player available if they so choose, but they still have to keep the future in mind as well. After all, there are several players on a one-year deal or entering the last year of their contracts.

For this 7-round Dallas Cowboys exercise I decided to use the mock draft simulators for Draft Network and Fanspeak. I was curious to see the difference, if any, between the two. I have to say, even though I used two different draft simulators, I was pretty happy with the way things turned out.

Let's take a look…

Draft Network

Fanspeak

Rd 2 (58) DE, Christian Miller DE, Christian Miller
Rd 3 (90) DT, Trysten Hill S, Amani, Hooker
Rd 4 (128) OT, Bobby Evans TE, Kahale Warring
Rd 4 (136) S, Marquise Blair RB, Rodney Anderson
Rd 5 (165) WR, Jalen Hurd DT, Michael Dogbe
Rd 7 (241) RB, James Williams WR, Cody Thompson

Even though I used two different draft simulators, you can clearly see the positions I was targeting for the Dallas Cowboys. I think each one of these players I selected can challenge for a starting job in 2019, but at the worst can be solid depth this year and then become starters in 2020.

Let's dive into this a little deeper so I can tell you why a selected each one of these players…

2nd-round (58th overall)

Christian Miller is the only player I drafted in both for the Dallas Cowboys. He is one of my “pet cats” this year and someone who I believe fits the criteria the Cowboys look for in their defensive ends. I believe he could challenge to be a starter as a rookie, but at worst would be a really good rotational piece with starting potential down the road.

3rd-round (90th overall)

Trysten Hill is a penetrating DT who could challenge to become the starting three-technique as a rookie, but at the very least be a really good rotational piece with starting potential.

Amani Hooker is someone who I believe could start next to as a rookie, even after the Dallas Cowboys added to the mix.

4th-round (128th overall)

Bobby Evans has the ability to play the left or right position in the NFL and could immediately challenge at RT. At worst, he would be Collins' replacement in 2020.

Sitting behind and learning for a season would be ideal for Kahale Warring, because he does have the potential to become the Dallas Cowboys TE1 in 2020 despite his lack of college production.

4th-round (136th overall)

Marquise Blair is an underrated in the 2019 draft class and someone who would also pair nicely with Xavier Woods. He played mostly at Utah, but as the ability to be a factor in coverage as well.

Rodney Anderson would immediately step in and become 's backup as a rookie. He is an upgrade over and has starting potential if he can stay healthy.

5th-round (165th overall)

Despite , the Dallas Cowboys could use a for the future. I personally really like Jalen Hurd as a “big slot”. He gives the Cowboys some size at the WR position and a big target for to throw to in the slot.

Michael Dogbe is another potential three-technique with starting potential for the Cowboys. He'd likely be a rotational player as a rookie, but could take over for Maliek Collins in 2020.

7th-round (254th overall)

James Williams would bring an intriguing skill set to the Dallas Cowboys as Zeke's backup . He is arguably the best receiving RB in the entire draft out of the backfield and when split out wide like a WR.

Cody Thompson reminds me of LA Rams WR and would play a similar role with the Cowboys. He needs to fine-tune his route running, but I think he can become their future slot receiver.

Either of these Drafts would be good for me. I especially like the Hooker pick as I think he could challenge as a rookie for the starting job. We know Dallas always surprises us on Draft day but I believe you have the positions correct. If a pet cat of theirs drops for some unknown reason (like La’el Collins did) I could see them trading up, also. It’s what makes the Draft so exciting.

Would so love for Miller to fall to #58. Agree with either draft.
