The combine has concluded and we can all agree that it doesn’t really hurt a players stock, it’s more of a helper. I have spent some time evaluating the Cowboys and the prospects and have completely altered my stance on this NFL draft since my last mock-up.
I’d like to give you guys my revised picks for the first 3 rounds and see what you think, so here we go:
Round 1: Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland
Campbell is an absolute freak: 6-3, 315 lbs of pure muscle. His skills are a little raw but his potential is limitless. If the Cowboys can nab him and get him a good mentor on the offensive line to work on his mechanics and game knowledge, Campbell will become a perennial Pro-Bowler.
Round 2: Myron Rolle, S, FSU
Myron Rolle is a special case. Something that appeals to me is his character. Rolle isn’t the cocky athlete who boasts in his ability. Instead, he is a brilliant man who has a bright future outside of football. Well, despite his incredible potential as a man in this world, he decided to play football first. That decision will land him a role as a franchise caliber player in the Blue and Silver for years. His game isn’t quite at the level of a Thomas or Berry, but his intellect, game knowledge, and rare athletic ability make him an attractive player for any team.
Round 3: Brandon Spikes, ILB, Florida
Spikes has been highly regarded all season throughout collegiate football as a middle linebacker. Unfortunately, his workout in Indianapolis was less than impressive. Like I said before though, I don’t really care. I’ve seen this kid play and he is ruthless. His size and play recognition make him a great run stopping threat and could really benefit from sitting behind Brooking for a year. If Spikes is off the board expect Sean Lee to be taken instead.
