Six weeks from now, the Dallas Cowboys will select some talented college kids to join their organization. Here is my first traditional mock of that process.

So here we are, diving into the mock draft pool. Over the next six weeks, I will do four different mocks. Today’s will be an entire seven-round, traditional mock. When I say “traditional,” I mean there will be no trades or exceptions for free agent moves (mainly because there have not been that many so far).
