For the past few weeks, you have seen my weekly mock draft cycle between players like safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, defensive tackle Aaron Donald and even linebacker C.J. Mosley as the Dallas Cowboys potential top pick in the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft. Well, today I decided to go a different direction.

Jackson Jeffcoat, DE – The University of Texas

“Due to the fact that Dallas will still have salary cap problems, the Cowboys will trade their first round pick and get a few more low-round picks for 2014 and 2015.  So with the second round pick, the Cowboys will select Jackson Jeffcoat from Texas University. Dallas will select Jeffcoat for a couple of reasons: (1.) 6-3, 247 lbs with a 4.63-40 yard dash is hard to beat for a second round pick.  He has the skill set to play the position of DE, a need for the Cowboys. (2.)  He has pedigree….being the son of former Cowboy great Jim Jeffcoat never hurt anything.  Jerry Jones likes to have familiar faces around and Jeffcoat is one of them.”
