With the 2023 NFL Draft nearly here, it felt like a good time to take another shot at a Dallas Cowboys mock draft.
The good news is, they have done a solid job adding talent on both sides of the ball this offseason. They have just one pick in each round following a couple of trades but with few holes, they can really look for the best value in each round.
That's what happens here, although they do also fill some major needs, including landing a stud tight end with their first pick.
Cowboys Selection Round 1, No. 26: Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah
Dallas did well to retain some of their key free agents but one that got away was Dalton Schultz. The former fourth-round pick from Stanford developed into a real weapon for the Cowboys but then left for Houston on a one-year deal worth roughly $9 million.
With him gone, Jake Ferguson is slated to be the starter but the Cowboys add another option here in Dalton Kincaid from Utah. Kincaid is a 6-foot-4, 246 pound prospect known for his fluid movements and vacuum hands.
He might not be a star when it comes to run blocking but neither was Schultz. He can, however, provide the same insurance in the middle of the field for Dak Prescott.
Cowboys Selection Round 2, No. 58: Tyrique Stevenson, CB, Miami
Kelvin Joseph hasn't turned into the No. 2 cornerback that he was supposed to be which led to the Cowboys making a move for Stephon Gilmore. While he's going to be the short-term answer, they need to find someone capable of starting across from Trevon Diggs long-term.
Enter Tyrique Stevenson from Miami. Listed at 6-foot- and 198 pounds, he might not have the lentgh Dan Quinn favors but he's still got more than enough size. He's also an explosive athelte who recorded 11 pass defenses and three picks for the Hurricanes following his transfer from Georgia.
