    Matt Miller’s 3-Round 2017 Mock Draft For The Dallas Cowboys

    The closer we get to the end the 2016 NFL season, the more we know about the playoff picture. Also at this time of year, we are starting to learn which college prospects will decide to enter the draft, which is why we are starting to see more surfacing around the Internet.

    Luckily, one of my favorite draft analyst, , released a three round mock draft  after polling his followers, asking them if they would rather have him his top 50 big board or a three round . Obviously, the mock draft won out.

    I don't know about you, but I love looking at all of these different mock drafts, especially to see who they have the selecting.

    I personally haven't started really looking at potential prospects yet, choosing instead to enjoy the way Cowboys are playing this season. But, I do have to say I like who Matt Miller has chosen for the Dallas Cowboys and would be ecstatic if this was the way things turned out.

    Below are the players Miller believes the Dallas Cowboys could possibly come away with in the first three rounds of the . By the way, you may notice that he has the Cowboys drafting 32nd over in the , the Super Bowl slot.

    32. Dawuane Smoot, DE, Illinois

    My analysis: The Dallas Cowboys desperately need to improve their pass rush, so Matt Miller's selection of a in the first round makes sense.

    At 6'3″, 255 pounds, has the size and speed to play DE in the Cowboys 4-3 . He plays with power at the point of attack and has an extra gear to finish when making plays in the backfield.

    Smoot has been the definition of consistent over the last few seasons. In 2015, he had seven QB and 14.5 tackles for a loss, then he finished the with five QB sacks and 15 tackles for a loss.

    He is exactly the type of disruptive player that the Cowboys could use along the if he is indeed available and I would love to see him wearing in 2017.

    64. Adoree' Jackson, CB/WR, USC

    Adoree' JacksonMy analysis: With and in the last year of their contracts, the Dallas Cowboys are going to have to address the position at some point in the draft. Fortunately, looks to be a future starter, so the Cowboys don't have to reach for a CB out of need.

    is first and foremost a tremendous athlete, which is evident by the way he was utilized in a number of different roles while playing at USC. The Trojans used him as a cornerback, , and a kick/. He made impact plays in all four of these areas.

    At 5'11”, 185 pounds, Jackson isn't the biggest , but he knows how to mirror WRs down the field and has tremendously leaping ability/awareness to make plays on the ball. He also isn't afraid to step up and make plays in the .

    Jackson is a player that could help the Cowboys in a number of different ways, just like he did at USC. This would be a great addition to the organization if he is available.

    96. Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington

    Cooper KuppMy analysis: Just like the cornerback position with the expiring contracts of Carr and Claiborne, wide receivers and are in the last year of their contracts as well, making it a position of need. So, it's not surprising that Matt Miller would select a WR for the Cowboys with their selection.

    This is what I love about mock drafts, because I honestly have never heard of before this, but he is definitely on my radar now.

    Kupp has the size that the Dallas Cowboys prefer in their wide receivers (6'2″, 195) and was definitely a fun player to watch on film.

    He played in the slot and as an outside receiver at Eastern Washington. He is a good route runner and is a natural hands catcher. He knows how to go up and attack the ball at the highest point and has a vice grip like hands to secure the catch.

    Kupp has played in 50 games during his career at Eastern Washington and has recorded 412 receptions for 6,156 receiving yards and 70 touchdowns.

    Cooper Kupp definitely looks like someone that can step in and play opposite in 2017, giving yet another weapon at his disposal.
