Final 2017 Dallas Cowboys 7-Round Mock Draft Prediction

It is officially draft week, and as such I decided to put out my final 7-round mock draft for the Dallas before the 2017 officially kicks off.

I really put a lot of thought into this mock draft based on who the have met with or shown interest in this . The majority the players I drafted for the Cowboys were pre-draft visitors or were worked out privately by the staff. The organization has shown in the past that they lean towards drafting these players, so why would things change now.

Below is my attempt to draft the way I think the Cowboys will, although they might not be the players I would have selected personally. Take a look and let me know what you think.

R1/28 – DAL: Kevin King, CB, Washington

King is the prototypical CB NFL teams are looking for on the outside. He has the size, length, and speed to match up with the bigger WRs and would be a Day 1 starter for the Cowboys. His addition instantly upgrades the Cowboys .

R2/28 – DAL: , DE, Ohio

Basham has the versatility to play LDE or RDE in the Cowboys 4-3 . He has a quick first step and the natural bend to apply pressure to opposing QBs. He would likely step in and be the immediate starter at RDE as a .

R3/28 – DAL: , WR, USC

Smith-Schuster is one of the few offensive players the Cowboys have brought in for a pre-draft visit and someone who would provide insurance in case continues to struggle with . He is a young player with #1 WR potential.

R4/26 – DAL: Eddie Jackson, S, Alabama

The Cowboys have a plethora of strong safeties on their and could use a player with more range. Jackson was a CB/S at Alabama and could compete to start next to as a rookie. He could also end up being the primary return man. Better as a deep than in the box.

R6/27 – DAL: Conor McDermott, OT, UCLA

McDermott could come in and compete for RT, but would likely serve as the swing on game days as a rookie. He has the movement and feet quickness of a , but struggles with power. Really needs time in the weight room to add strength in order to hold up as a bookend in the NFL.

R7/10 – DAL: Brendan Langley, CB, Lamar

Langley is an intriguing CB prospect because he has the size/length NFL teams look for their outside corners, but he needs time to develop his skill set. He has gotten by on his athleticism, but will need to clean up his mechanics and footwork before he can be a reliable contributor.

R7/28 – DAL: Treyvon Hester, DT, Toledo

Hester is a disruptive 3-tech that would fit in perfectly in Marinelli’s 4-3 . He needs to clean up his technique because he plays too high at times, but he has a quick first step and would be a good rotational player as a rookie.

There is no way of knowing if this is the way the Dallas will actually turn out, but we could see a few these players names written down on the Cowboys draft card later this week.

The only two players in this mock draft that I can’t really find any connection to the Cowboys throughout this draft process is Eddie Jackson and Treyvon Hester, but there are always a few surprises. Both players fit the scheme which is why draft them, but the Cowboys could go an entirely different direction.

What do you think of this mock draft for the Dallas Cowboys?
