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.

      I have the trade function with my fanspeak account that has yielded much better drafts, but I tried to keep it simple.

      • Michael Davis

        I’m not sold on a Safety at 16. I would rather see Barr there or trade back and get Shazier. Love your round 2 & 3 guys. Like Fales as future starter 2-3 years from now.

        Just to show people how different trading can be, this is my draft when I can trade. Below is the play by play. It’s not accurate, more just for fun.

        Traded #16 to San Diego for their 1st, 2nd,
        and 3rd.

        Saw Barr at #16, traded next year’s 1st to
        Baltimore for the #17 and their 6th round pick.

        Traded #25 from San Diego and two of my 7th rounders to Baltimore
        for their 1st round pick next year.

        Saw Su’a-Filo when I took Beckham, traded the 2nd
        from San Diego and my 5th round to Miami for #50.

        Traded #89 from San Diego to Cincinnati to move one spot
        to #88 to get Ealy.

        Took L’Damian Washington with Baltimore’s 6th
        round pick.

    • David

      I like your draft. Thomas would worry me a bit going that high though.

      • Rich

        I would consider ourselves lucky if he was there in the 5th. Starting caliber OG in the 5th is a steal even if he is not ready right away. IMO

        • David

          I dont disagree with you on the value. My thoughts are Dallas just has to many holes to have a guy redshirt this year.

          • Rich

            I don’t think he would miss the whole year and Leary and Bernie are there. Probably our best chance at a starter in the 5th. IMO

          • David

            Well that better not be the case. At the very minimum their 1st and 2nd round guys better be starters.

          • Rich

            In my mock Barr, Ward, Easley would all be immediate starters. If you consider the no 3 receiver a starter then Latimer would be too. Thomas would be once he gets over the injury. Crowell could end up being a starter down the line as could Patchan and it’s not inconceivable that one of the 7th round LB’s could earn a starting spot at some point.

          • David

            I totally agree with you on Barr, Ward and Easley. In regards to Latimer I am not so sure there. I really think you will see Escobar flex out into the slot this year to create mismatches. So any WR they draft past the 2nd round or so is most likely strictly for depth in case of injury to Dez or T.

          • Rich

            Latimer probably would be a 2nd rounder if there werent so many good receivers this year. I suspect Dallas will go 3 wide often enough to make a receiver a good investment but we will see.

          • Michael Davis

            Dez is only WR on Dallas that is better then Latimar. Yes he would start. He could be drafted in the back end of 1st round and almost certain a 2nd rounder.

          • David

            So you are saying he is better than Terrance without even stepping on an NFL field?

          • Michael Davis

            Yes he has more upside then Williams. I think he will go before Dallas picks at 47. But for the sake of this mock, if he were to land in Dallas he would be #2WR opposite Bryant and Williams would move to slot. We would have one of the best starting trio of WR in the league

    • PaulTX

      I do not see those players being there at those spots, but I like those picks. I’m not familiar with your 5th round and beyond, except for Crowell.

      • Rich

        Bromley is an under the radar DT with double digit sack potential Shaquill Barrett is an under the radar OLB that I think had 13 sacks last year. Lynch Patchan and Jackson are just good value picks at position of need.

        • PaulTX

          Well, hopefully McClay knows these things. I think after round 3 is where scouts really make the difference. Before then, almost anyone can draft good players.

          • Rich

            I am sure he does but so does every other team

  • nope

    I am not so sure that is even realistic. Like last year in the first round, there may be a lot of reaching. I think those first three picks will be gone by the time the Cowboys pick each of them. If any one of them are available, that’s a homerun.

    This was a really cool post, I love the idea behind this. letting the fans get involved. I hope we pick up Jackson Jeffcoat! I hope we don’t draft ANY skill positions before round 5..or 6

  • Ed

    It is probable that Danny Amendola will be cut by the Patsies. Has anyone considered bringing him back? My initial thought is “he has become a cheaper Miles Austin”, so no. But he is a very good receiver when healthy. That would leave more picks to be dedicated to defence and O-line.
