Matt Miller’s Mock Draft 2.0: Dallas Cowboys Land Defensive Upgrades

Former Staff Writer/Draft Analyst is at it again. He recently released his Mock Draft 2.0 where he predicts the first three rounds with trades and included. You have to be a subscriber to see the in its entirety, but I can share with you who he selected for the at least.

Let's take a look and then discuss…

Round 1, Pick 10 – CB , Virginia Tech

Caleb Farley would fill a position of need and fits 's preferred parameters for a tall, lengthy . I can't find any fault in Matt Miller's selection here and I highly doubt the Dallas Cowboys would either.

Round 2, Pick 44 – OT James Hudson, Cincinnati

With both and returning from season-ending and the need for depth behind them, James Hudson absolutely makes sense. He's a DT turned OT with arguably the highest ceiling of any LT prospect in the class.

Round 3, Pick 75 – DT Marlon Tuipulotu, USC

The Dallas Cowboys need to upgrade their defensive front is obvious and Matt Miller's selection of Marlon Tuipulotu helps in that area. He provides much-needed depth and can probably play either the one or three-technique in Dallas' 4-3 .

Round 3, Pick 100 – Daelin Hayes, Notre Dame

The selection of Daelin Hayes is the first and only head scratcher I have from Matt Miller selections for the Dallas Cowboys. Dallas could use more depth at DE, but I don't know how well Hayes fits Dan Quinn scheme. I believe he's more of a hybrid defender.

Overall I don't have anything really negative to say about the players the Matt Miller selected for the Dallas Cowboys in his mock draft 2.0. I think each and every pick makes sense, with the exception of maybe Daelin Hayes. I just don't know how well he fits Dan Quinn's defensive scheme since he played mostly out of a two point stance during his time at Notre Dame. Other than that though, I would be completely happy if this is how the Cowboys first three rounds played out.

What do you think? Do you like Matt Miller's picks for the Dallas Cowboys?
