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. I asked our knowledgeable and loyal silver and blue Landry Hat writing staff to predict their choice for the Cowboys first round pick post-combine workouts. Here are their answers and analysis.

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.”

    I wish people would stop acting like Warren Sapp would slide to 16 in any NFL draft. He had red flags due to a questioned drug history and still was drafted at 12. Aaron Donald will either be WELL gone before we pick, or he will be a Cowboy who never plays a full season due to being undersized or ineffective due to his lack of size.

      Yeah he is gone isn’t he? If he is hopefully QB is there and get a 2nd.

      You have to remember though Sapp was more dominant in a a bigger programme.

      You think a guy from Pittsburgh deserves the same attention as a guy from a dominant program as U?

    So what do they do if Donald isn’t there? Trade down or take another DT (Jernigan or Hageman)? Sticking at 16 and taking a DT would be my choice.

    @Mike Burke
    That was then (Warren Sapp) this is now (R. Hagerman). Bigger tougher, and just as fast!
