LANDRY HAT MOCK DRAFT LOGOWith the NFL Scouting Combine starting this weekend, NFL Draft predictions are in full swing. And with more underclassman to select from ever, NFL teams will be looking to obtain multiple picks in this draft. And the Dallas Cowboys should more than most.

Therefore, in my last pre-combine mock draft, I predict the Cowboys will trade down in the first round in order to get an extra second round pick. Details concerning the trade and analysis of their pick will be included at the Cowboys new draft spot.

    Sorry but no way Dallas Cowboys make another trade with SF after getting fleeced from last year. They should have received more in that trade than they did. Ok, they made out great with the players they selected but they got the wrong compensation for sure. You mentioned them getting a 1st and a 2nd which is appropriate but thats not what they got last year. So why would you want to deal with a team that not only gave you crappy returns but also lied in saying they wasn’t going to take a defensive player with the pic? I wouldn’t trade with them unless they offer 1,2 and a 5th or too bad, no deal SF.

      I agree with the compensation, but I’m not sure how the drafts ares grades. Giving the fact that we got an instant upgrade in the OL and WR the trade want bad overall.

    Donald then Richardson. Yeah I could live with that…

  • John Brodie’s Ghost

    Only a Cowboys fan who hates the 49ers would ever mock SF to trade up and then draft Marquise Lee ahead of both Mike Evans and Justin Gilbert. The only way that ultimate brainfart could occur is if we let Jerry Jones draft for the 49ers this year.

    Ok with those picks but, with the other two should be better select van noy or telvin pace olb of florida state, he is great leader

    If Hageman is available at 17, then Dallas should take him. They should be focused on DT only. If Jernigan is still available, then take him. If they wait till 30, all three DTs could be gone (including Donald). The risk on missing out on really good talent at the biggest position of need is to great.
