    Dallas Cowboys 2020 3-Round Mock Draft: Early December Edition

    The have under a cloud of misery right now with no clear escape insight. There is next to nothing going on to get excited about, unless you like all of the “doom and gloom”. In order to break through this seemingly impenetrable cloud hanging over our heads to perhaps receive the slightest glimmer of sunshine, I decided to predict who the Cowboys could select in this way too early 2020 mock draft.

    There still may be three regular-season games yet to be played, but the collegiate season is nearly over and the NFL postseason picture is rounding into form. Believe it or not, that means the draft season is nearly upon us. I don't know about you, but I enjoy the entire /draft process almost as much as I enjoy the NFL season.

    The offseason for the Dallas Cowboys should bring quite a few changes. The Cowboys not only have several set to depart after the , but the current staff could join them as well. With that in mind, we could see an entirely different approach to and the draft this year, which makes any offseason that much more difficult. Try to keep all that in mind when looking over this way too early 3-round mock draft.

    For this mock draft I used Draft Network's Mock Draft Simulator.

    Round 1, Pick 21

    Yetur Gross-Matos
    Penn State DE Yetur Gross-Matos

    The Dallas Cowboys have a plethora of needs on the defensive side of the ball, but upgrading their should be one of their top priorities. With , , , and set to hit free agency after the season, defensive and defensive end depth for the Cowboys is extremely thin. That's why I selected DE Yetur Gross-Matos out of Penn State.

    Gross-Matos (6'5″, 265) is currently ranked 25th overall on 's right now and would likely be a plug-and-play rookie if drafted by the Dallas Cowboys. He has impressive length and knows how to use it. He also has a relentless motor any would fall in love with. The first-round may not have been kind to the Cowboys the last time they drafted a DE (), but Gross-Matos is no Charlton.

    Round 2, Pick 53

    Jeff Gladney
    TCU CB Jeff Gladney

    I toyed with the idea of taking a cornerback with the Dallas Cowboys first-round pick because both and could be leaving via free agency, but I believe upgrading the defensive front is of higher priority. But don't worry, one of my favorite in this draft class fell right into the Cowboys lap in the second-round in this 2020 mock draft. Let me introduce you to CB Jeff Gladney out of TCU.

    Gladney (6'0″, 183) is currently ranked 67th on Draft Network's big board, but I believe he will end up being drafted an entire round earlier. If the lasts this long though it would be an absolute steal for the Cowboys land him in the second-round. He would be in an immediate starter in Dallas as a rookie and bring something to the table they are desperately missing, a playmaker. He not only knows how to get in the hip pocket of receivers, but also how to make a play on the ball.

    Round 3, Pick 85

    Brandon Jones
    University of Texas S Brandon Jones

    S Brandon Jones, Texas

    For years now Cowboys Nation has been begging for the Dallas Cowboys to upgrade their safety position. Well, that's exactly what I did in the third-round by selecting Brandon Jones out at the University of Texas. I believe he could be the perfect pairing with and be a pretty big upgrade over at the same time.

    Brandon Jones (6'0″, 205) is currently ranked 80th overall on Draft Network's big board, but luckily was still available in this mock draft when it was the Dallas Cowboys turn to pick at 85. Jones has been a huge part of the Longhorn's pretty much since he arrived in Austin. I believe he is arguably the best tackling safety in this draft class and likely would've been a first-round pick if he had better ball skills. If the Cowboys can teach him to catch the ball he could be a steal.

    What do you think of this way too early 2020 Cowboys 3-round mock draft?

    Time to draft a run stuffing 1tech for this defence

    James weaver

    It don’t matter who they draft until they get a coach to coach them I replace all of the coach’s

    Howard stevens

    Sounds good. I’d rather get the safety and CB first then get a big fat NT. Hopefully Marinelli will retire. Smiling Dopey Opie will be fired after finishing 7-9. Unfortunately the GM will stay. His lies yesterday about he’s always been the guy with the final say are a joke. Tony Casilias trade is one example. Since Jimmy Johnson’s players retired his Team has won 3 pathetic Wild Card games. Never even been to NFC Championship game. He’s in the HOF as an owner NOT as a GM.

    How do you feel about Bravvion Roy out of Baylor as a potential NT for the Cowboys

    Temarius Sheppard

    Draft a playmaker in the secondary in the first round. All good to great defenses have a really good safety. Why wait? why try to develop one to be able to catch? Draft one that can catch.

    Dewayne Willams

    This the issues for years we been waiting to the last rounds to draft a plug in the middle tackle it’s time to take one in the first we can’t keep waiting if a safer or defensive tackle is there in the first then take him I corner can’t cover forever if there’s no pressure up the middle or stopping the run as well

    Daniel Cash

    We are good at DE…. I don’t see us letting Quinn go as good as he’s been this season!! Plus we have good backup ends too!! The first pick should be a safety or CB, And the 2nd round take what wasn’t taken with the 1st pick, and the 3rd round take a DT!! So the way these mock drafts have looked lately, I say we take a safety in the 1st round, a CB in the 2nd round, and a DT in the 3rd round!! The only way I’d change my opinion on that is if Derek Brown or Javon Kinlaw falls to us in the 1st round!! But either way I wouldn’t waste a 1st round pick on a DE!!
