Cowboys Selection Round 5, No. 169: Olusegun Oluwatimi, IOL, Michigan

Dallas lost Connor McGovern in free agency this offseason and that's led to the belief they need to add a guard early in the draft. Now, they might decide to do this if the right player were on the board but in this mock, it made more sense to wait — and they wound up with options.

At No. 169, they could go with Antonio Mafi from UCLA who is a bulldozer in the ground game. Or, they could land Olusegun Oluwatimi from Michigan. Oluwatimi played center for the Wolverines but can also line up at guard and in the end, it's that versatility that lands him in Dallas.

Not only does he have a shot at winning the left guard job but he could be the top reserve center as well, which helps when deciding who to dress on game day.

Cowboys Selection Round 6, No. 212: Jake Witt, OT, Northern Michigan

Jake Witt has come from nowhere and is being considered a potential steal. The Northern MIchigan product is an athletic freak and the only question here is whether or not he really would be on the clock at No. 212. If so, he makes far too much sense to pass on.

Witt could quickly become the swing tackle for Dallas and he even has starting potential down the road.

Cowboys Selection Round 7, No. 244: Jalen Graham, LB, Purdue

Right now, linebacker doesn't feel like much of a need. Leighton Vander Esch is returning and Damone Clark had surpassed Anthony Barr by the end of the season. There's also Micah Parsons, who is the best defender on this team.

But with Clark moving into the starting lineup, some depth is needed. That's where Jalen Graham comes in. The Purdue prospect would also be asked to help on special teams due to the exit of Luke Gifford, and as a rookie, that will be his key to seeing the field.
