One of the most exciting days in the NFL calendar year, is without a single doubt, the NFL Draft. Teams are ready to make tough decisions that will impact franchise history, fans are eagerly waiting in front of the TV to see who's the player that the NFL Commissioner will announce when they're favorite team is picking.

This time, in the AT&T Stadium, the NFL Draft will be an exciting one from the moment it begins. Many quarterbacks will be drafted, many trades will occur, and many top-end talent will slide due to the amount of QBs drafted early.

It'll be fun and hopefully, teams will get better.


Welcome to my third and final Mock Draft of the year. In this simulation, only one trade was simulated (even though we know a lot will take place). The Buffalo Bills put their future at risk and hand four total picks in order to land the #2 overall selection to find their signal-caller of the future.

Here it is, two rounds, 64 selections. I hope you enjoy and reach out to me @PepoR99 to share your thoughts!

✭✭✭✭✭

R1/1 - CLE: Sam Darnold, QB, USC

The first overall pick in the Draft will come down to Josh Allen or Sam Darnold. The Browns can't afford to take the risk of passing on Darnold's play-making ability and opt for him instead of a QB who can be great, but still has a lot of work to do.

R1/2 - BUF: Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA

(Mock Trade: The Bills send their #12, #22, #53 for the Giants' #2 pick)
The Bills send a ton of selections to New York to land their QB. Josh Rosen is the best quarterback from a passing technique perspective and will be a great pocket-passer in the NFL. Some have Rosen falling, but I believe he goes earlier than expected.

R1/3 - NYJ: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

After giving the Colts three second-rounders, the Jets find their guy, Baker Mayfield. Although his height is far from ideal, Baker's arm and pocket awareness will give defenses a headache when playing against him. The Jets get a hell of a leader and a fierce competitor.

R1/4 - CLE: Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State

If the Browns are to play under a rookie quarterback like Darnold, adding a running back as good as Saquon Barkley (and boy, is he good) will go a long way into taking the pressure of the QB's shoulders. Cleveland shouldn't overthink this one, Barkley is a franchise-changing player.

R1/5 - DEN: Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming

Denver stays put and takes the best arm in the NFL Draft. With Case Keenum on the roster, Allen won't have to start from week 1, which is great for him. Allen can grow into a franchise quarterback and make all the throws he has to to be succesful on Sundays.

R1/6 - IND: Bradley Chubb, EDGE, NC State

The Colts need to fill a lot of spots on their roster. Moving to a 4-3 defense this season, they get themselves a quality pass rusher in Bradley Chubb. Chubb has a ton of talent and is a very smart rusher with very good technique.

R1/7 - TB: Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB, Alabama

Fitzpatrick could play as a safety or as a cornerback for any NFL team. The Buccaneers need help at both positions and the only reason Minkah is available at this point is the amount of quarterbacks taken in the first picks. At just pick #7, Fitzpatrick is already a steal.

R1/8 - CHI: Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame

Quenton Nelson might be the best player in the class and with Chicago needing to protect their young signal-caller Mitchell Trubisky, drafting Nelson is a no-brainer.

R1/9 - SF: Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia

Tremaine Edmunds is a rangy linebacker who can grow into one of the best in the league in a short period of time. The 49ers should be looking to add talent at LB, specially after the concerning news regarding Reuben Foster.

R1/10 - OAK: Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State

I won't be surprised if a team like the Arizona Cardinals want to jump over the Dolphins and take Lamar Jackson in the top 10, but in this scenario, Oakland stays put and drafts Denzel Ward, arguably the best CB in the Draft.

R1/11 - MIA: Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia

Roquan Smith is still available at #11 and Miami doesn't hesitate to add a defense-changing player like himself. Miami's roster is thinner than many like to admit, they have a chance to draft a captain LB here.

R1/12 - NYG: Mike McGlinchey, OT, Notre Dame

(Mock Trade: The Bills send their #12, #22, #53 for the Giants' #2 pick)
The Giants continue to add talent to their OL, even after signing Nate Solder in free agency. If they are trusting Eli Manning for a couple of years, then giving him a quality OL is a priority.

R1/13 - WAS: Derwin James, S, Florida State

Derwin James somehow falls all the way to the 13th overall pick and the Redskins add an incredible talent that can play in many spots over the secondary. Washington needs defensive backfield help and few prospects will be able to deliver such thing as much as James.

R1/14 - GB: Harold Landry, EDGE, Boston College

Harold Landry is a very talented rusher and despite missing a lot of time due to injuries in 2017, he finds his way inside the top 15 picks and gets taken by the Packers, who desperately need a pass rusher.

R1/15 - ARI: Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville

Some may consider this early for Lamar Jackson, but I truly believe he'll become a franchise QB in the NFL. The Cardinals benefit from teams passing on him and find him at 15. I won't be surprised if they make a trade to make sure they land him, because they can't be comfortable with Sam Bradford as their only potential starter in 2018.

R1/16 - BAL: Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama

Calvin Ridley may not be an "X" receiver, but he doesn't need to be one to have the impact needed on offense. He simply has a natural ability to get open, the Ravens should get one more weapon for Joe Flacco by adding this talented receiver.

R1/17 - LAC: Connor Williams, OT, Texas

The Chargers add talent for their offensive line in Connor Williams, whose stock has taken a hit over the last few months but should still be able to succeed as a tackle or a guard in the NFL.

R1/18 - SEA: Mike Hughes, CB, UCF

I may be higher on Mike Hughes than most, but I truly believe he'll be a very special player and may become a lock-down type of cornerback down the road. He also adds a weapon as a returner.

R1/19 - DAL: Vita Vea, DT, Washington

The Cowboys have a ton of needs and will find talent for basically every position they could use at 19. Vita Vea would help the defense a lot, wrecking chaos in the middle of the line of scrimmage. With talented players like DeMarcus Lawrence and David Irving, the Cowboys could have a top defensive line for the 2018 season.
If they don't find Vea, they could target a WR like Sutton or Moore. Offensive guard might be an option as well, specially with Hernandez and Wynn still on the board. Rashaan Evans and Leighton Vander Esch will also be in consideration, but I don't like either at 19 compared to the other prospects, to be honest.

R1/20 - DET: Rashaan Evans, LB, Alabama

I won't be surprised if a running back goes in this pick, but the Lions need defensive talent and in this mock, they draft Rashaan Evans. He's a linebacker who still needs time to develop, but can contribute early with his talent.

R1/21 - CIN: Isaiah Wynn, OG, Georgia

After basically adding a tackle with their 12th pick (which was traded to the Buffalo Bills), the Bengals' offensive line still needs help. Isaiah Wynn provides a quality starting guard and could also play as a tackle if needed. However, playing him at guard should be the plan.

R1/22 - NYG: Marcus Davenport, EDGE, UTSA

(Mock Trade: The Bills send their #12, #22, #53 for the Giants' #2 pick)
This time, the Giants add a raw but talented edge rusher in Marcus Davenport. His athleticism can turn him into one of the best in the league after some playing experience. This is very good value for the Giants at 22.

R1/23 - NE: Kolton Miller, OT, UCLA

The Patriots lost Nate Solder during free agency and try to replace him with a big guy like UCLA's Kolton Miller. Day 1 starter to protect Tom Brady. The GOAT is not retiring anytime soon.

R1/24 - CAR: Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville

Carolina needs to fix the cornerback position as soon as possible and Jaire Alexander is the way to go at 24. A top-20 talent, Alexander will be a difference maker from the moment he steps on the field. His intelligence on the field is quite outstanding.

R1/25 - TEN: Will Hernandez, OG, UTEP

Will Hernandez is a great prospect who can get even better, specially at pass protection. The Titans add a very tough guy in the trenches. Excellent value.

R1/26 - ATL: Da'Ron Payne, DT, Alabama

Besides DT, is difficult to predict which direction Atlanta is heading with the 26th overall pick. In this scenario, Da'Ron Payne makes it there. A very good defensive tackle who can get after the QB is what Atlanta needs.

R1/27 - NO: Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota St.

The Saints have a chance to add a dynamic pro-ready tight end to help Drew Brees' offense find success during the QB's final years in the NFL. Dallas Goedert may not come from a top school, but the traits are there to turn him into a great player at the next level.

R1/28 - PIT: Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Boise State

Vander Esch is going to be good, there's no question about that. What we don't know is how long will it take him to develop? I struggle to see him as a first-round prospect, but he'll probably won't fall past the Steelers, who definitely need a LB.

R1/29 - JAC: DJ Moore, WR, Maryland

The Jaguars are betting on Blake Bortles, which means it's time to give him the most help they can. In this case, they find DJ Moore, who can be an "X" or a "Z" receiver. Moore at the 29th pick is a steal for the Jags.

R1/30 - MIN: Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa

The Vikings secondary is already good enough, but now they add even more talent in Josh Jackson, who has what it takes to become a very successful defender in press coverage.

R1/31 - NE: Sam Hubbard, EDGE, Ohio State

It might be a little to early for Sam Hubbard, but the Patriots will be able to develop him into a very productive pass rusher, something they desperately need.

R1/32 - PHI: Derrius Guice, RB, LSU

The Eagles could use a running back to give the offense a more threatening rushing attack and Derrius Guice is still on the board. If he's able to stay healthy, Guice will be a very productive RB for the Super Bowl Champions.

R2/33 - CLE: Isaiah Oliver, CB, Colorado

R2/34 - NYG: Sony Michel, RB, Georgia

R2/35 - CLE: Justin Reid, S, Stanford

R2/36 - IND: James Daniels, OL, Iowa

R2/37 - IND: Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU

R2/38 - TB: Ronald Jones, RB, USC

R2/39 - CHI: Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M

R2/40 - DEN: Carlton Davis, CB, Auburn

R2/41 - OAK: Lorenzo Carter, LB, Georgia

R2/42 - MIA: Hayden Hurst, TE, South Carolina

R2/43 - NE: Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State

R2/44 - WAS: Maurice Hurst, DT, Michigan

R2/45 - GB: Anthony Miller, WR, Memphis

R2/46 - CIN: Donte Jackson, CB, LSU

R2/47 - ARI: Tyrell Crosby, OT, Oregon

R2/48 - LAC: Harrison Phillips, DT, Stanford

R2/49 - IND: Brian O'Neil, OT, Notre Dame

R2/50 - DAL: James Washington, WR, Oklahoma State

The Cowboys address the WR situation in the second round by taking a guy who provides the offense with a deep threat. Washington needs to polish his route running, but he's a weapon who will contribute from Day 1 in Dak Prescott's offense.

R2/51 - DET: Mike Gesicki, TE, Penn State

R2/52 - BAL: Billy Price, OL, Ohio State

R2/53 - NYG: Fred Warner, LB, BYU

(Mock Trade: The Bills send their #12, #22, #53 for the Giants' #2 pick)

R2/54 - KC: Orlando Brown, OT, Oklahoma

R2/55 - CAR: DJ Chark, WR, LSU

R2/56 - NYG: Luke Falk, QB, Washington State

(Mock Trade: The Bills send their #12, #22, #53 for the Giants' #2 pick)

R2/57 - TEN: Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, EDGE, Oklahoma

R2/58 - ATL: Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame

R2/59 - SF: Michael Gallup, WR, Colorado State

R2/60 - PIT: Jessie Bates, S, Wake Forest

R2/61 - JAC: Malik Jefferson, LB, Texas

R2/62 - MIN: Taven Bryan, DT, Florida

R2/63 - NE: Josey Jewell, LB, Iowa

R2/64 - CLE: Martinas Rankin, OT, Mississippi State

NFL Draft

Red River Rivalry Brings WR Devin Duvernay to Dallas, Hopefully to Stay

Red River Rivalry Brings WR Devin Duvernay to Dallas, Hopefully to Stay 1

If you happen to be a fan of college football and the Dallas Cowboys, then the 2019 Red River Rivalry between the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns might just be a game you want to tune in for this weekend. Both teams will showcase quite a few players who could enter the 2020 NFL Draft and one of the more talented, although still underrated, players could be of interest to the Cowboys.

Enter Texas Longhorns Wide Receiver Devin Duvernay.

When it comes to positions the Dallas Cowboy would be most interested in next year's NFL Draft, wide receiver might not be at the top the list… or so it would seem from the outside looking in. But if you look a little deeper only Amari Cooper, who the Cowboys will extend eventually, and Michael Gallup are locks to stick around beyond this season. That's where Devin Duvernay comes in.

With Randall Cobb and Tavon Austin under one-year contracts, the Dallas Cowboys could be looking for their next slot receiver. Devin Duvernay may be new to the position with the Longhorns this year, but he's already proving to be a dynamic weapon out of the slot and could be exactly what the Cowboys are looking for.

The slot WR position is an important one for the Dallas Cowboys, especially for Quarterback Dak Prescott. It has become a security blanket of sorts over the years for Prescott and finding a sure-handed receiver he's comfortable with is easier said than done. Luckily though, they don't come much more reliable than Devin Duvernay.

According to the folks over at Pro Football Focus, Duvernay was one of the rare collegiate WRs who didn't drop a pass in 2018. That's pretty impressive considering he played the Z-receiver role with the Longhorns last year before moving into the slot in 2019. I'd say that's pretty sure-handed. Down the field targets are much more difficult to haul in than the ones thrown near or around the line of scrimmage.

Sure handedness isn't Devin Duvernay's only impressive trait though. His physicality and infectious attitude on the field is something that would pair nicely with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup, both of whom are a little low-key/reserved as far as their on-field persona is concerned. Duvernay is a WR who likes to punish would be tackler and he has the build to do just that.

At 5'11", 210 pounds, Duvernay's thick, well muscled frame is much more RB-esque than that of a traditional receiver. His build is comparable to Carolina's D.J. Moore and San Francisco's Deebo Samuel, both of whom were taken relatively high in their respective drafts the past couple of years. His play to both of these WRs is similar as well.

The soon to be former Longhorns WR has all the intangibles to take it to the house anytime he touches the ball. His physicality alone makes him difficult for any defensive back to tackle, but he also possesses elite speed as well. He claims he can run a 4.3 40-yard dash and his film certainly suggests he's capable of doing just that.

Overall, Devin Duvernay is absolutely someone the Dallas Cowboys should keep an eye on when the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns meet up this weekend in Dallas for the Red River Rivalry. I'd be more than happy if he ended up being one of their Day 2 selections, which is where I have him being drafted right now.

Cowboys Land CB in Matt Miller’s way-too-early 2020 NFL Mock Draft

Matt Miller's 2020 Mock Draft Predicts Cowboys Strengthen Their Secondary

What better way to kick off the 2019 NFL regular-season and the start of college football then a way-too-early 2020 mock draft? Well, you're in luck. Matt Miller, one of my favorite draft analysts, just released his latest 2020 NFL Mock Draft for Bleacherreport.com and you may be surprised as to who he selected for the Dallas Cowboys.

One of the reasons I enjoy Matt Miller's work above many other so-called "draft analysts" is because he has his ear to the ground and has a pretty good connection with scouts around the league. That kind of information is pretty invaluable, but he also has a solid understanding of team "needs". Add all of that up and you get a really solid guesstimate of who could be on a certain teams radar, in this case the Dallas Cowboys.

Let's take a look at who Matt Miller predicted the Dallas Cowboys could draft in the 2020 NFL Draft with their first-round selection. Miller set this particular mock draft according to current Super Bowl odds from Caesar's Palace.

25. Dallas Cowboys

Bryce Hall

Virginia Cavaliers CB Bryce Hall

The Pick: CB Bryce Hall, Virginia

Matt Miller predicting the Dallas Cowboys select Cornerback Bryce Hall with there first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft definitely seems like a plausible possibility. He knows the Cowboys can't afford to pay everyone and he even said as much. With Byron Jones and Anthony Brown entering a contract year in 2019 and with Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis having expiring contracts after 2020, Dallas' secondary could definitely need addressing.


The Cowboys know this as well which is why they probably attempted to add some developmental depth to the CB position through the 2019 NFL Draft when they took Mike Jackson in the fifth-round. Jackson has the attributes they look for in their corners, but in no way has he looked like he'd be ready for a starting role next season. That makes Miller's Bryce Hall selection a definite possibility.

According to Miller's 2020 mock draft Bryce Hall is the fourth secondary player to come off the board. There were three cornerbacks selected ahead of him and one safety. He does fit the mold Kris Richard prefers in his CBs (6'1", 200) and also has the physical playing style in press coverage Richard likes as well. All in all, this is a very solid prediction for the Dallas Cowboys.

Whether or not the Dallas Cowboys would choose to select a CB this early is unknown at this point. But, it certainly seems like a high possibility considering all the corners with expiring contracts in a year or two. I think the Cowboys could look into taking a tight end or a safety with their first-round pick as well, but again it's way too early to have any kind of clue as to how their draft board will look like when the 2020 NFL Draft rolls around.

I don't know about you, but I'll be keeping a closer eye on Bryce Hall this season just in case Matt Miller is correct. I'd like to get a head start to see just how well he would fit, or not, with the Dallas Cowboys.

2020 RB Options for the Cowboys if Things Turn Ugly With Ezekiel Elliott

2020 RB Options for Cowboys if Things Turn Ugly With Ezekiel Elliott

The Dallas Cowboys could have a Le'Veon Bell-type situation on their hands in regards to Ezekiel Elliott. It's been reported Zeke is contemplating a holdout until his financial demands are met by way of a contract extension. This could put the Cowboys between a rock and a hard place.

Ezekiel Elliott is technically still under contract for two more seasons because of the fifth-year option he carries as a former first-round draft pick. Threatening to hold out seems a little premature, but Zeke has the Cowboys by the short hairs right now, meaning the leverage is on his side.

This is a situation that could, unfortunately, turn ugly, and quickly.

Check out Ep. 6 of Cowboys Weekly - Segment 1 for more discussion from Inside The Star on Ezekiel Elliott's Hold-Out situation:

The Cowboys have several other mouths to feed and Zeke may not be at the top the list considering his continued immaturity issues off the field. His on-field production is undeniable, but so are the red flags that keep popping up. It may be time for Dallas to look for his successor and fortunately, the 2020 running back draft class is a pretty good place to start.

Let's take a look…

Jonathan Taylor, Wisconsin

Jonathan Taylor

Wisconsin Badgers RB Jonathan Taylor

Jonathan Taylor (5'11", 219) would probably be the ideal candidate to replace Ezekiel Elliott for the Dallas Cowboys. He is one of the more productive collegiate running backs expected to enter the 2020 NFL Draft and has the intangibles that are eerily similar to Zeke as far as size, speed, and power are concerned. Unfortunately, that likely makes him a top 10 selection, putting him out of reach of the Cowboys.

Taylor doesn't come without his warts though. As a true Junior, he's seen a lot of action in his three years as the starting RB for the Badgers. That wear-and-tear is a cause for concern because it could lead to durability issues once in the NFL. He also has struggled with his ball security. He's put the ball on the ground 12 times in the last two seasons, which will need to be cleaned up at the next level. But, there's no denying his talent.

D'Andre Swift, Georgia

D'Andre Swift

Georgia Bulldogs RB D'Andre Swift

D'Andre Swift (5'9", 215) is one of my favorite RB options in the 2020 draft class to replace Ezekiel Elliott if things turn ugly with the Dallas Cowboys. He doesn't have the same kind of production as Jonathan Taylor and is still somewhat under the radar because he's been stuck in a committee with the Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, and Elijah Holyfield the last two years. But mark my words, he will be the next great RB to enter the NFL out of Georgia. Swift could be as ideal of a candidate to replace Zeke as there is.

Dallas likes an inside runner with zone vision as well as someone who can be a threat in the passing game, and D'Andre fits the bill. Despite being a little smaller in size than Zeke, he still possesses the power to run inside. Then throw in his receiving ability, 32 catches for 297 yards and three touchdowns last season, and you have someone who is more than capable of replacing #21's offensive production. He's projected to be a late first-round pick, which could put him within striking distance of the Cowboys.


J.K. Dobbins, Ohio State

J.K. Dobbins

Ohio State Buckeyes RB J.K. Dobbins

J.K. Dobbins (5'10", 214) could be someone who is already on the Dallas Cowboys' radar as a potential Ezekiel Elliott replacement. They seem to have a liking for Ohio State running backs (Zeke, Rod Smith, Mike Weber) and could turn to another Buckeye to carry the rock. Dobbins, an all-purpose back and native Texan (Houston, TX) checks all of the boxes the Cowboys typically look for in their featured back.

Dobbins has the size, speed, and vision to be a featured back in the NFL. He has rushed for over 1,000 yards his last two seasons while splitting time with Mike Weber and has averaged about 200 receiving yards during that time span as well. He's not the most physical back, but he keeps moving his feet upon contact. He also needs to improve in pass protection in order to become a true three-down RB in the NFL. But his vision, shorter area quickness, elusiveness, and patience as a runner are all top-notch.

Travis Etienne, Clemson

Travis Etienna

Clemson Tigers RB Travis Etienna

The breakout season of Quarterback Trevor Lawrence, unfortunately, overshadowed the Heisman-worthy year Travis Etienna (5'10", 200) had in 2018. In his first year as a starter, he rushed for 1,658 yards and 24 touchdowns, all the while averaging an impressive 8.1 yards per carry. If he can follow that up in 2019 he could become the most coveted back in the 2020 draft class and become a really intriguing option for the Dallas Cowboys.

Etienne will probably need to add a little bit more "good weight" and muscle to his frame if he wants to be considered a featured back in the NFL. If he can accomplish that and not lose any of his elusiveness or speed he should climb up draft boards. If not, he may not be of much interest to the Cowboys because they already have a similar RB in Tony Pollard. He does possess plug-and-play talent though, making him a potential Ezekiel Elliott replacement.

Najee Harris, Alabama

Najee Harris

Alabama Crimson Tide RB Najee Harris

Najee Harris (6'2", 230) is yet another big, physical running back who has had to remain patient and wait his turn at Alabama, but 2019 could be his breakout season. With Bo Scarbrough, Josh Jacobs, and Damien Harris ahead of him on the depth chart the last two years, Najee saw limited playing time. But, when he did receive the opportunity to showcase his skill set he didn't disappoint. His physical talent could make him a top-5 running back come draft time.

Despite his limited playing time last the two seasons, he averaged over 6 yards a carry. He rushed for a career-high 783 yards and four touchdowns on just 117 carries in 2018 and should easily surpass those totals this season. In doing so he should become one of the more sought after RBs in the 2020 draft class. With the Cowboys, as Zeke's potential replacement, his physicality would pair nicely with Tony Pollard's slashing style. A Harris/Pollard duo could be just as productive as the Cowboys running game has been in the past.

Honorable Mention

The above five running backs are all potential Ezekiel Elliott replacements who I really like and will likely receive the most national attention due to the programs in which they play. But, they are only a few in what looks like a really strong 2020 RB draft class. Here a few honorable mentions you should also keep a close eye on as well.

  • Cam Akers, Florida State
  • Eno Benjamin, Arizona State
  • Kennedy Brooks, Oklahoma
  • Ke'Shawn Vaughn, Vanderbilt
  • Kylin Hill, Mississippi State

I believe any of these running backs mentioned above at any point in the article could be in play for the Dallas Cowboys if they choose to play hardball with Ezekiel Elliott over his want for a contract extension. The 2020 running back draft class has a plethora of potential starters and this could be in the back of the Cowboys mind when they're determining where they want to spend their money. Paying top dollar for an RB might not fit in their budget, even for one as talented as Zeke.

Do you like any of these potential RBs as replacements for Ezekiel Elliott?
