Final 2020 Dallas Cowboys 7-round Mock Draft Prediction

Well, it's been fun . Unfortunately, draft season this year will come to a completion tomorrow afternoon when the first round of the 2020 kicks off. That means no more Dallas Cowboys this year, but hey…we can always start on 2021. It's never too early to take a look at next year's draft class, right!?

To say the 2020 draft season was an interesting one would be an understatement. The Coronavirus/COVID 19 pandemic threw a huge wrench into the process which has made and evaluating this year's draft class all the more difficult. It's really going to be interesting to see how it impacts the things throughout NFL Draft.

But enough with all of that talk, let's get to my final seven-round prediction. I tried to select players who I've been able to confirm the Dallas Cowboys have “met” with whether formally, informally, or virtually. Below is what I came up with…

Round 1, Pick 17 – Zack Baun, EDGE/LB, Wisconsin

Zack Baun

With C.J. Henderson and K'Lavon Chaisson likely gone, Zack Baun becomes the name I'm writing down on the draft card if I'm the Dallas Cowboys. Linebacker, , demon… Baun is a Swiss Army Knife type of chess piece the Cowboys can deploy in a variety of ways. He's also a good insurance policy if Aldon Smith/ struggle if/when they're reinstated and if there are any lingering issues with 's surgically repaired neck.

Round 2, Pick 51 – Noah Igbinoghene, CB, Auburn

Noah Igbinoghene

Noah Igbinoghene is a turned whose on-field play projects well at the next level. He's still learning the intricacies of the CB position, but his athleticism and strength to alter routes in press coverage makes him an intriguing prospect. His rawness may keep him from becoming an immediate plug-and-play player as a rookie, but his ceiling is as high as any CB in the 2020 draft class. The added value he brings as a special teams player makes him well worth a second-round pick.

Round 3, Pick 82 – Bryan Edwards, WR, South Carolina

WR Bryan Edwards

Bryan Edwards is the only player in my final mock draft who I haven't been able to confirm whether or not the Dallas Cowboys have shown any interest in. So the selection is based more on my admiration for Edwards as a player and how I think he fits in the Cowboys as a “big slot”. I love the size, physicality he would bring to the position and his versatility to play on the outside as well. I think he would be a perfect complement to both and .

Round 4, Pick 123 – Kenny Robinson, S, XFL

I thought about going with TE Devin Asiasi here because the Dallas Cowboys are supposedly infatuated with him, but Kenny Robinson is someone I have graded higher and plays a more “need” position for the Cowboys. He may have taken an unconventional path to get to this point in his career, but is range and instincts as a centerfield type are hard to come by. I believe he has a real shot at earning a starting job as a rookie.

Round 5, Pick 164 – Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford

After passing up on Devin Asiasi a pick earlier, I decided to draft Colby Parkinson here. He is yet another Stanford TE to make his way to the NFL and could join former teammate in Dallas – who could be his main competition. I think Parkinson is pretty similar to what the Cowboys already have in Blake Jarwin, but I don't believe that's a bad thing. If Jarwin happened to get injured, Parkinson should be able to step right in and take over without changing the .

Round 5, Pick 179 – Broderick Washington, DT, Texas Tech

Broderick Washington was a late addition to the Senior Bowl as an emergency fill-in for and took full advantage of his opportunity. He played multiple interior positions in odd and even fronts in his three years as a starter at Texas Tech, playing at least 70% of the defensive snaps each year. He's a tough-minded DT with a nasty streak who competes with power and tenacity. He would add some much-needed depth as a rotational player as a rookie for the Cowboys.

Round 7, Pick 231 – Cohl Cabral, C, Arizona State

Cohl Cabral
Arizona State Sun Devils C Cohl Cabral

Cohl Cabral is a former offensive turned center and as such has the versatility to play multiple positions along the . The Dallas Cowboys could definitely use more depth along the interior of their offensive line and Cabral would provide just that. He still needs to add a little more strength in order to hold up better at the point of attack, but there is enough to like about his skill set that should earn him a roster spot and backup role as a rookie.
