In just four days, we will learn which college football players have their professional dreams come true, specifically doing so with the Dallas Cowboys.
Finally, we are now less than a week away from ending all speculation. In just four days, we will know exactly which players join the Dallas Cowboys via the NFL Draft.
For now, however, we are still stuck in the world of mock drafts. Today, I am unveiling my third mock draft. In my first attempt, over four weeks ago, I enlisted fanspeak.com‘s mock simulator to complete a no-trade, full seven-round mock draft.
Approximately 10 days ago, I changed things up. Not only did I change simulators, utilizing profootballnetwork.com‘s simulator, but I also did just three rounds and included a trade. Today’s mock attempt will merge these two worlds.
This mock draft will come to you via yet another new simulator, this one being from Pro Football Focus. Once again, we will do a full seven-round draft. Let’s get it started, shall we?
With the 17th pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select …

In order to draft their future quarterback, I was able to obtain the Patriots first-round selection, 23rd overall. I was also able to get them to throw in picks 98 and 100 overall, giving the Dallas Cowboys five total picks in the top 100. So now…

K’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE – LSU
Chaisson, a player that has become increasingly linked to this team over the past ten days, would be a great pickup six picks later than the original slot. He is widely considered to be one of the three best pure pass rushers in this draft.
After posting a total of 3.0 sacks in his first two seasons at LSU, Chaisson recorded 6.5 sacks as a junior along with 60 total tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, two pass deflections, and a forced fumble in 13 games last year.
The 20-year old Chaisson also seems to have a big football future ahead of him. Lastly, he provides insurance just in case currently suspended incumbents in defensive ends Randy Gregory and Aldon Smith fall short of hopeful expectations.
