Tis the Mock Draft season. And while Mock Drafts are fun, they rarely ever are correct or provide anything valuable, outside of getting to know other players. But today, we are going to look at a Mock Draft that saves the Cowboys some cash and helps upgrade their team. But before we begin, I am going to assume that the Cowboys sign one of Jason Hatcher or Henry Melton to help out on the defensive line. And with the money that this draft saves the team, we are going to assume that DeMarcus Ware stays as well. Let us begin.

    This draft would be a disaster. Numerous players cut would save no money. Taking a 5th round QB doesn’t cover the risk of Tony going down. I understand the Melton and Ware assumptions, but DL must be addressed in this draft.
    Martin would be a great addition playing G his first year, then moving to RT. Berny needs to be kept for back up purposes at G and C.

      Aaron donald and Jackson jeffcoat in the first two rnds and Bring henry melton. Now we have a Front four. Draft a linebacke, safety , tackle, fullback, wide receiver, and another corner bc c w webb sucked this past year.

    I’ve always said, “give me a premier OG in the first two rounds and you can do whatever you want with the rest of the picks.” Zack Martin does that for me.

    I completely disagree with every bit of this.

    After some deep thought and afew reservations this isn’t sounding too bad. I know we really need to boost the defensive line. I think we’re okay with the rest of the defense. We would like to have a grade A superstar at each position, but not possible. Safety has been a point of concern, we’ve thrown money at that position for a while and have come up empty every time, except for Church. I’m thinking that the other Safety spot is on the roster. Another year of playing this scheme with Coach M as the new DC I’m counting on him to turn one of them into a servicable Safety. Linbackers are in the same boat, we have Lee, Carter took a step back, but that could be due to the new scheme, still have others on the team that can be servicable.
    For the Offense I would cut Parnell and have an open competition for the Offensive Line. Left Tackle and Center are set, but Left Guard, Right Guard and Tackle let them compete in training Camp. Cut Orton, we’re spending too much $ on that position, hopefully Orton will just retire so we can recoup some $. With a solid Offensive line lets bring in a cheaper option via the draft. Love the rest of the picks. Still have compesitory picks to pick up a few more players, but thinking analytically this strategy could work pretty well. Once Austin is cut work on resigning Bryant and Smith and keep a eye out for some bargain free agents that fill a need without breaking the bank.
    Round 1: Tackle/Guard Zack Martin, Notre Dame
    Round 2: WR Davante Adams, Fresno State
    Round 3: Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas
    Round 4: DT Cauran Reid, Princeton
    Round 5: QB David Fales, San Jose State
