Last week, I challenged our knowledgeable readers to produce their own seven-round mock drafts in preparation for the real thing happening this Thursday night. The assigned task was to “step into the comfortable shoes” of Dallas Cowboys general manger and owner Jerry Jones and make the team’s selections for all 11 of the Cowboys current draft picks. Below and in the pages to follow you’ll find those results, along with the readers own notes and my humble analysis of their selections. Enjoy!

Mock by: Jacob Beldon
Note: 16th Traded to jets for extra for 18th and 80th

18 – OLB Anthony Barr
47 – DT Will Sutton
78 – QB Jimmy Garopplo
80 – OT Morgan Moses
119 – OG Trai Turner
158 – CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste
229 – OLB Christian Jones
231 – RB Isaiah Crowell
238 – WR Josh Huff
248 – DT Bruce Gaston
251 – OG/OT Brandon Thomas
254 – S Jonathan Dowling

My Analysis:  I like the idea of trading down only two spots in the first round and picking up an extra third round pick. According to the Trade Value Chart over at Walter Football, that trades actually works out. I’m a big fan of the Barr, Sutton picks. But it’s very unlikely Garoppolo and Moses are still around in the third. Turner and Jean-Baptiste are also great pick-ups, but I don’t think the cornerback will last that long either. But hey, someone has to drop. Definitely, a solid draft.

    There are some very interesting drafts here and I had a tough call on picking my favorite one. Most of you negelcted the safety in the early rounds and that boggles my mind as how bad Dallas safeties are. So naturally Basile’s draft with Dallas getting Dix was the leading draft. But then the last two drafts had Dallas getting Barr and Shazier back to back. I do not see anyway that happens but if it did I would gladly ignore the safety spot there and take those two guys. I think both of those guys are the throw back to the Jimmy Johnson days of speed and playmakers kill. And both of those guys have sub 4.5 speed. Its a dream but, its a nice one.

      In mine, both HHCD & Pryor were gone by 16, and Ward by 47. Outside of those guys I can’t see spending an early pick on a S with other holes to fill.

      • David

        I agree with you totally. So in that scenario I have to hope Barr is there and if he is gone then maybe trade back a few spots and take Shazier.

        • Chad

          With Martin available at 16, there’s a really good chance that Miami would move up to get him. Something I discussed with a friend was the double-edged sword of trading out of the first round entirely with Washington if none of our favorite 1/2 dozen or so guys are available. The compensation would no doubt be great, but how much of a boost does that give a divisional rival……..

          • David

            Anything is possible. I think this draft might go crazy on the trade front. It will be an interesting one to watch..

    Love the last mock listed. Barr the Shazier would make our defense soooo fast on the field. Teaming Shazier with Lee give us two guys that will always be around the ball.

    Thanks for the insight Steven Mullenax, I can only hope for the best this year because honestly the 16th pick is a terrible spot. Trading back seems to make the most sense because the value 2nd-3rd round is very high compared to the second half of the first round. I liked alot of these drafts and it appears so many people got players that fell better than the personal did for me. I just think that our defensive and offensive lines are the biggest holes period. We have the players and talent but everything starts in the trenches. Your defensive line makes your LB’s and DB’s better with more preasure and your OL makes everything easier on offense. I’d like to say Pryor or HAHA Dix would be the answer at safety but there not even as good as Vaccarro or Reid from last year, they are just the best of a not so good bunch. Needs wise the Cowboy’s have to go DE, DT, OL, LB, WR (God forbid an injury to Bryant or Williams), DB and that if the personal even fall right. This years draft is gonna be a intresting one I really believe.
