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 part two!
Mock by: Arturo Jara
16 – OLB ANTHONY BARR, UCLA
47 – DE SCOTT CRICHTON, OREGON STATE
78 – DT DOMINIQUE EASLEY, FLORIDA
119 – DT WILL SUTTON, ARIZONA STATE
158 – DE MICHAEL SAM, MISSOURI
229 – S BROCK VEREEN, MINNESOTA
231 – WR JOSH STEWART, OKLAHOMA STATE
238 – WR AUSTIN FRANKLIN, NEW MEXICO STATE
248 – FB TREY MILLARD, OKLAHOMA
251 – WR TEVIN REESE, BAYLOR
254 – CB KAMERON JACKSON, CALIFORNIA
My Analysis: Barr and Critchton are homeruns. Easley backed up with Sutton is a smart move. Although I think the first six picks are rock solid, I would have liked you to have addressed the offensive line in there somewhere. And three wideouts in the seventh round is a bit of overkill as I think the Cowboys only have one slot open in their current receiver corps.
