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

    Well, the 2020 NFL is officially over. The Dallas Cowboys 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
    • Pay cut for DE/DT Tyrone Crawford
    • Sign DT Danny Shelton
    • Sign SS Karl Joseph
    • If/when reinstated, bring back DE Randy Gregory

    LET'S DRAFT!!!

    Round 1

    Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama

    Adding Henry Ruggs III to the mix with Amari Cooper and would make the Dallas Cowboys an absolute nightmare for opposing defenses. His God-given speed and talent is a game changer, much like Kansas City Chiefs 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

    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 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, 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 Rod Marinelli. 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, 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 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
    , 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 . 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 special teams 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?

    What about Randall Cobb, he wants to play for McCarthy? We would have 4 good wideouts vying for snaps. I think Chace Claypool decided to stay as a wideout, that would leave a big hole at TE.

    Willie Smith

    With the depth of WR in this draft, Address defense first 2 rounds, see what WR drops like Gallup in 2018 to 3rd round. Would love a trade back in the 1st round to get more picks, hopefully another 3rd round pick. Then go CB, DL & S if not addressed in FA

    VAM

    Not sure Ruggs would still be there at 17, would be great pick if so. I would question two CB picks, especially if they sign Jones. Need run stuffer badly, so Hamilton would be Ok, but would love Fotu if available? Good mock overall.

    REGGIE

    The Dallas Cowboys NEED To DRAFT A SAFETY In the First Round, and that being “Grant Delpit”…IF they are Not going to Make the Reported “SPLASH” of Moving Up – in Hopefully Drafting “Isaiah Simmons” and put Him at STRONG SAFETY – for Jeff Okudah or Javon Kinlaw. Karl Joesph has been an Underachiever since being Drafted by the Raiders, which is Why he is Available in the First Place. Still N Again, they DON’T take “Safety” a High Priority. And THAT NEEDS to STOP.

    Chuck Wright

    1st, Dallas moving up would likely be beyond stupid as they have so many needs. Now trading back. . .that makes great sense to me.

    But having said that, Ruggs would definitely be awesome and would upgrade the WR room. And agree on Claypool. Think McCarthy can really make him work in his O.

    Given your FA projections, while I’d rather have McKinney long term, you have seriously upgraded Dallas’ D.

    Roger Miller

    I dont see Claypool lasting that long but would like to see that addition he is a great wr has great hands. For old schoolers aka Kellen Winslow type of te/wr

    Cowboys fan

    I don’t believe Karl Joseph is that good to where we pass on a top safety in the 1st or 2nd round!! Even if we signed somebody like Karl Joseph I’d still use my 1st pick on Xavier Mckinney!! And get a good slot receiver in the 2nd or 3rd round!! I like Ruggs, but I’d still rather have Xavier Mckinney!!
