Dallas Cowboys 2020 7-round Mock Draft: Post NFL Combine Edition

Well, the 2020 Combine is officially over. The and the rest of the league have a lot of new and useful information at their disposal. The most important of which are the medical reports completed in Indianapolis, but the drills performed there have their use as well. With that in mind, I thought it was the perfect time to do another 7-round Cowboys .

I thought I would do something different this go around though. I decided it would be more realistic if I shared with you what I would like to see happen in free agency before the draft gets here in April. I think it helps put things in a little bit better perspective, although not all that much since the Dallas Cowboys and I could see things very differently. But, at least it helps justify my selections a little better.

Let's get started…

Free Agency Moves

  • Lock up QB long-term
  • Tag WR Amari Cooper
  • Re-sign DE
  • Re-sign CB
  • Place tender on TE Blake Jarwin
  • Pay cut for DE/DT Tyrone Crawford
  • Sign DT Danny Shelton
  • Sign SS Karl Joseph
  • If/when reinstated, bring back DE


Round 1

Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama

Adding Henry Ruggs III to the mix with Amari Cooper and would make the Dallas Cowboys passing game an absolute nightmare for opposing defenses. His God-given speed and talent is a game changer, much like WR Tyreek Hill. With so much work to do on the defensive side of the ball, the Cowboys are probably going to have to field a high-scoring to have any kind of success in 2020. Ruggs' addition would help accomplish just that.

Round 2

Noah Igbinoghene
Auburn, CB,

Noah Igbinoghene, CB, Auburn

With and Anthony Brown both potentially leaving in free agency and and entering the final year of their rookie contracts, the Dallas Cowboys absolutely need to address the cornerback position. Noah Igbinoghene is an ascending player still learning the CB position, although his background as a and track star has put him on the fast track to becoming a top notch . He's sure to have a few growing pains, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's one of the best to come out of this draft class.

Round 3

Davon Hamilton
Ohio State, DT, Davon Hamilton

Davon Hamilton, DT, Ohio State

If you've read any of my previous work, you know DT Davon Hamilton is one of my “pet cats” in this year's draft class. I love his ability to anchor the middle of the , something Dallas Cowboys haven't had under the tutelage of former DC . With him gone though, I fully expect to add some big bodied, space eating DTs to his front seven and Hamilton is definitely somebody he should target. Him being a force in the middle should help , much like it did Chase Young and Nick Bosa during their time with the Buckeyes.

Round 4

Chase Claypool
Notre Dame, TE, Chase Claypool

Chase Claypool, TE, Notre Dame

Opinions will vary as to where Chase Claypool best fits at the next level, but I believe he could be a perfect move in the NFL. He actually reminds me of former TE Jermichael Finley. They mirror one another as far as size and skill set is concerned, but Claypool is definitely the faster and more athletic of the two. He needs time to develop and learn the TE position, but he would be a fantastic mismatch against smaller DBs and a much-needed red zone threat as a rookie.

Round 5

Geno Stone
Iowa, S, Geno Stone

Geno Stone, S, Iowa

Even though I believe the Dallas Cowboys will address the position via free agency (Karl Joseph), I decided to add some depth at the position anyway in Geno Stone. Stone is an underrated prospect in this year's draft class, but he has the talent to develop into a starter in the NFL. He is at his best when he is playing forward and is an absolute heatseeking missile when he zeroes in on his target. I think he will be the next Kavon Frazier (core special teamer, reserve safety) to begin with, but he has the potential to be much more in a year or two.

Round 5 (Comp. pick)

Reggie Robinson II
Tulsa, CB/S,

Reggie Robinson II, CB/S, Tulsa

Sticking with the theme to help upgrade the Dallas Cowboys lack of depth in the , I decided to draft another cornerback in the fifth-round with the projected compensatory pick for Cole Beasley. Reggie Robinson II played CB at Tulsa, but I believe he may need to make a switch to safety at some point in the NFL. He has the size (6'1″, 205) and the physicality to make the switch, but in the meantime he could compete for a starting CB gig as a rookie. Worst-case scenario he provides much-needed depth and becomes a core player.

Round 7

Cameron Brown
Penn State, LB, Cameron Brown

Cameron Brown, LB, Penn State

With the final of the Dallas Cowboys 2020 draft picks I decided to give the Cowboys some much-needed depth with the selection of Cameron Brown out of Penn State. I believe he can play all three LB positions and matchup with tight ends in the passing game as well. He needs to learn to play a little more under control, but he's as physically gifted as any LB in this year's draft class. His value early on will be on special teams though while he continues to develop as a player.

What do you think of this Dallas Cowboys 2020 7-round mock draft?
