With the Dallas Cowboys deep into a playoff race with just four weeks left in the NFL season, speculating on next year’s draft is admittedly premature. For one, the season isn’t over yet and the exact draft order has yet to be determined. Secondly, college underclassman have until mid-January to declare themselves eligible to be drafted in May or opt to remain enrolled at their respective universities for the following year. Finally, a lot of things could change between now and the draft, most importantly the analysis gained from the NFL Scouting Combine which is scheduled for late February.

Still, this is also the time early mock drafts begin appearing and the upcoming bowl season only heightens that excitement. And as Cowboys fans, we are not immune to said excitement. Therefore, I present my way too early top ten prospects that the Cowboys could pick in the first round next year based on need and current projected draft status.

Now, let me preface this list by stating there are obvious players you take in the first round, especially if they drop to you. Names like Jadeveon Clowney, the defensive end out of South Carolina or UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr. Both of these players are currently projected to be top five picks in next year’s draft and should be snatched up immediately if available at Dallas’ pick. But based on our projected win/loss standings, I’d estimate the Cowboys pick to be in the low-mid twenties. And the following prospects, which are in no particular order, should be available at that time or have a chance to be. The list begins on the following page…

    Imagine getting Tuitt in the 1st, Yankey in the 2nd and then Sutton in the 3rd. Wouldn’t mind the guard Gabe Jackson and that DT Donald from Pitt either. Our lines would be good to go! Throw in the safety Boston from UNC and that QB from Eastern Illinois and I would be ecstatic!

    It is highly unlikely that the Cowboys pick in the mid 20′s. They would have to make the playoffs to be in that position. Right now the playoffs are a stretch. It is more likely that they pick in the mid teens.
    Forget Trent and Beasley, they are to small. The need at DE is greater than people think. Ware is done and only a goodplayer now, not elite. OG would be great. Then the OL would be complete for sometime to come. Lots of youth to grow together. Berny is the weak link. DL is the greatest need.
