Dallas Cowboys’ 7-round mock with updated draft picks
With the 129th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select …
Rasheed Walker, Offensive Tackle – Penn St.
Height: 6’6″ Weight: 313lbs
Dallas is releasing Collins and with Terence Steele about to take over that role, the team needs to focus on finding a replacement for Tyron Smith. The often injured tackle’s play has declined and the addition of Rasheed Walker would give the team another in-house option just like Steele was when they were ready to move on from Collins. Walker would have to battle it out with last year’s fourth-round pick in Josh Ball who was out all of last season with an injury.
He will need to work on getting out of his stance with better consistency and hand placement, but overall he could be developed into a nice piece for the Cowboys.

With the 130th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select …
Tariq Castro-Fields, Cornerback – Penn St.
Height: 6’1″ Weight: 198lbs
Career Stats: 139total tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 25 passes defended, 3 interceptions, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble
The Cowboys need more depth at the cornerback and safety positions. Out of those two secondary positons, the first domino to drop here is the cornerback. Castro-Fields has been a leader on the Nittany Lions defense since his arrival and has been impressive with handling all of the tough receivers thrown at him.
But with this pick, Dallas could see Castro-Fields as more of a safety that has the ability to cover tight ends if they feel he isn’t quite fast enough at cornerback.
It will be interesting to see how Dan Quinn would use Castro-Fields. If the Cowboys take him, they could find multiple ways to get him on the field when the time comes.
