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 three!

Mock by: Burton

16 – DT TIMMY JERNIGAN, FLORIDA STATE
47 – DE SCOTT CRICHTON, OREGON STATE
78 – RB BISHOP SANKEY, WASHINGTON
119 – DE MARCUS SMITH, LOUISVILLE
158 – WR MIKE DAVIS, TEXAS
229 – QB CONNOR SHAW, SOUTH CAROLINA
231 – CB AARON COLVIN, OKLAHOMA
238 – G SPENCER LONG, NEBRASKA
248 – S BROCK VEREEN, MINNESOTA
251 – C COREY LINSLEY, OHIO STATE
254 – OT JUSTIN BRITT, MISSOURI

My Analysis: Jernigan, Crichton and the versatile Smith fill the Cowboys defensive line needs. Many consider Sankey the top running back in the draft. Landing him in the third round could be a Godsend, especially with DeMarco Murray’s contract expiring. Note sure three offensive lineman in the seventh will be enough to find us a start in that group. But it’ll certainly help with depth.

    There is zero chance Dallas drafts Jernigan, Donald, Mack or Evans in the 1st round. Jernigan may not even get drafted in the 1st round and the other three may not make it out of the top ten. And how people keep ignoring the safety spot is mind boggling.

    • Chad

      While I agree to an extent, one thing to keep in mind with this simulator is that it’s unpredictable. Like we talked about the other day, if HHCD, Pryor, and Ward (who I don’t think most would reach on if we were unable to trade back from 16) are gone, is it worth using a pick through the first 3 rounds to get another Wilcox? I don’t believe so. Can you fiddle with the simulator and do it over and over until you get what you want? Sure. However that takes away from the point of “what we can do with who’s available”. With my mock in part 1 of the series, I only did 1 run. None of our favorite safeties made it to me. There’s every chance that the same thing could happen in the next few days when we do it for real.

        I dont want another Wilcox. Im not even sure I want the one that is here now lol. If they dont get one of the top safeties in Pryor or Dix I am hoping they draft other areas for needs. The can spend a 7th rounder on another project safety but not one from the 2nd to the 5th rounds. They have to many other needs where the value should be better and less riskier.

    Jernigan flunked the drug test at the combine.

  • Rich

    My new mock just 5 rounds
    1. Barr DE
    2. Easley DT
    3. Landry WR
    4. Zumwalt LB
    5. Brandon Thomas OG

    If Ward was available in the 2nd I think they would take him but since Easley was there they took him instead.
