Mock Draft 2.0 Rounds 1-3: Bruce Campbell, Myron Rolle Break Through

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.

    No way Spikes drops to round three. Taking Myron Rolle in round two is quite a reach. Campbell is one of those “combine players”, sure, he's measurables are great, but he is a project player, and Dallas doesn't need those. They have a window of opportunity, which means they need “now players”, players that can come in and make an impact ASAP.

    Martin While i agree that campbell is a project player, he's a project you want to take on. Rolle is a tremendous players and most other safeties of quality should be off the board. As much as Spikes, he was just unimpressive at the combine and though it can't hurt him that much I think he falls to that range.

      There is no way the Giants pass on Spikes twice.

    jj goes for smaller schools

    Spikes could very well be there in Round 3 after posting a 5.1 40 at his pro day. A linebacker that slow will raise concerns for anyone drafting him and his stock is dropping! We have drafted many LB in the last couple of years, not sure this is an area of immediate need, unlike OT, S, and WR since Roy Williams is a bust.

    shipley goes to dallas before spikes does, the team needs more help there not to mention the better charecter and hometown prospect he brings

  • BWS1066

    Rolle is figuring to be there in 4th or 5th round hes not that highly rated, thats high for Campbell who is a project and Spikes wont be there in third
