    Draft Cowboys: 7 Round Mock

    The Cowboys are in first place of but they are not without weaknesses. This team has no depth at the and secondary. These positions should be two of the needs for the . Here is the first seven round mock.

    1. Ha ‘Sean “Ha-Ha” Clinton-Dix, Safety, Alabama

    Dallas has shown that safety is still a primary concern in coverage. Last year was drafted in the to try and sure up their position. He has been playing well up until his . Clinton-Dix coupled with Wilcox can be the answer to help with their corners in coverage for the future.

    There were two guards that could have been taken with this selection. I felt that Martin would be the one available when Dallas steps to the podium to make their pick. Martin slid inside from left so his versatility is a huge plus for the Cowboys. He could even replace at , should the Cowboys not retain him after this season.

    3. , , Missouri

    Ealy has the prototypical size you want in a defensive end at 6’5” and 275 pounds. Ealy is a great speed rusher and could help with the , which the Cowboys have struggled with consistently this season. Ealy is a very raw player and could be the reason he falls to the Cowboys in the third round. With the injuries to and , depth has been an issue on the defensive line. Not to mention Spencer has probably played his last snap for the .

    4. , , Washington

    Shelton is a strong tackle who should eat up blocks playing at the 1-tech position. He has shown strength to back the up and using that strength to shed the blocker. is no longer on this team and is in a contract year. He has been the most consistent player on the line but with his age this team might have second thoughts on anything long-term as far as a new contract.

     5. Eric Ward, Wide Receiver, Texas Tech

    Ward had an opportunity to come out of school last year but decided against it with Kliff Kingsbury coming to take over the program. Many felt that it was the right decision to increase his draft stock. Ward has had a sub-par year by his standards but still a solid number three receiver behind fellow Big 12 receivers and .

     7. Jimmy Garoppolo, , Eastern Illinois

    Garoppolo is the best quarterback to come out of Eastern Illinois since well . Dallas will need to begin searching for the eventual replacement of Romo. His contract has an opening to release him with little in 2017. That would give Dallas three seasons for Garoppolo to learn from him as his heir apparent.

     7. Trey Millard, , Oklahoma

    Millard played his last game of the season against Texas Tech in Norman three weeks ago but suffered a season ending injury tearing his ACL and another knee ligament. He should be available in the late rounds of this draft. Millard would give Dallas something they haven’t had since Daryll “Moose” Johnston retired, a legitimate full back to help with this lackluster . He is also a huge threat in the passing game.
