Popular draft analyst and staff writer for The Athletic, , recently released a full seven-round mock draft for all 32 teams. When the author of The Beast, arguably the most complete draft guide in publication, speaks you should listen. That's especially true because of his connection with the .

While you have to be a subscriber to The Athletic to see how each pick played out for all 32 teams in Brugler's , I can give you a of who he selected for the Dallas Cowboys. Below is how he utilized all 10 of the picks.

1 10 , CB, Alabama
2 44 Javon Holland, DS, Oregon
3 75 Marlon Tuipulotu, DT, USC
3 99 D’Ante Smith, OT, East Carolina
4 115 , , Iowa
4 138 Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
5 179 Trevon Grimes, WR, Florida
6 192 John Bates, TE, Boise State
6 227 William Sherman, OG/C, Colorado
7 238 Kene Nwangwu, RB, Iowa State

Draft Breakdown:

I don't know what you think about Dane Brugler's selections for the Dallas Cowboys, but I think he did an excellent job of properly using all 10 of their draft picks while keeping their in mind.

With the four picks the Cowboys have in the Top 100 he upgraded the by adding a plug-and-play CB, a versatile who could challenge for a starting job, and a starting caliber DT to upgrade the . He also added an insurance policy and potential replacement for .

With the first of the Cowboys Day 2 picks Brugler selected a versatile who can play out on the edge or kick inside. He could take over the role and provide much-needed depth at both DE and DT.

Next he added a talented who probably would've went in the first-round last year if he'd entered the draft. If not for an plagued he'd likely be in the first-round discussion this year as well. He'll provide much-needed depth and could compete for a starting job in the not-too-distant future.

With the Cowboys four remaining draft picks Brugler decided to address the by providing more depth at WR, TE, RB, and a versatile interior offensive lineman. None of these players will likely compete for a starting job this year, but could be a factor in the starting rotation as soon as next season.

Overall, I think Dane Brugler did a pretty solid job of not only addressing some of the Dallas Cowboys biggest team needs right now, but also for the future as well. While I may have Carne different direction with a few of the picks I can't say that I wouldn't be pleased if this is the way things play out.

You need to keep Jerry Jones out of the Draft Room, before He starts trading all of the Cowboys picks!! Just make your picks!! No trades, if it Not includes starting Offensive Lineman!!! Lets see if there are takes+!!

Mike Thaxton

Stop getting worked up over the media guessing and every draft is planned with all coach’s ! Just because he calls the name doesnt mean he picks !

Dane didn’t address NT. Tuipulotu is a 3 Tech. Golston would replace Crawford.

Wow, I am not impressed by this guy’s mock draft. There are only four guys in the list I would consider worthy (Surtain, Holland, Moses, and Tuipulotu). The rest of the guys are way out there. I wouldn’t be surprised if 3 or 4 of them ended up being undrafted free agents for somebody, rather than draft picks.

They have to draft DT D. Nixon out of Iowa in the third round if he’s available. He is a mountain and non-stop motor. He’s falling because of some off the field issue that he was exonerated from back in 2018.
Get this to Jerry!

I love the idea of trading this pick back to a lower spot Look at the history of what it gets you.

(Newsome, Farley, etc) and few more picks in the first 3 rounds.

Second option all day

Then send a 2,3 and 4 to get a second 1st round pick. To the Jets? They need picks. We will have at least 2 of each at that point. And we do not have that many open roster spots.

Newsome, another 1st. And 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

That’s a A+ draft.
