Now that the Super Bowl is over, the focus for all NFL teams shifts to the upcoming Scouting Combine and the eventual NFL Draft. For a team with salary cap limitations like the Dallas Cowboys, the draft represents their best chance to improve their club going into the new season. And as Dallas featured the worst defense in the league last season, it makes sense that a majority of their selection would be slated in that direction. But history indicates the Cowboys would have abetter chance fining a long lasting contributor by going offensive first.
But in my newest post-Super Bowl mock draft, facilitated through the Mock Draft Simulator at Fanspeak.com, Dallas sits with multiple directions they could go at pick #16. Here’s my full first round mock draft plus a detailed explanation of the Cowboys pick and it’s tumultuous history:
1. Houston Texans
Quarterback, Fresno State
