Round 7, Pick 231: Joshua Cephus, WR, UTSA

When Keon Coleman dropped the bombshell that he is CeeDee Lamb's cousin, it led to quite the dream. Pairing Lamb and Coleman would give Dallas one of the most dynamic duos in the NFL. Perhaps if there weren't nees on the line of scrimmage, that would be the way to go. But in this mock, they wait since Brandin Cooks is still more than capable of being WR2 for at least one more year.

That doesn't mean the Cowboys shouldn't draft a wideout. Here, they wait until Round 7 to do so but end up with someone who has a lot of potentials.

Joshua Cephus wasn't at the combine but he did show out in 2023 with 1,151 yards and 10 touchdowns on 89 receptions for UTSA. He didn't play against elite talent, which will hurt him, but he's 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds and well worth a flier in Round 7.

Round 7, Pick 242: Evan Anderson, NT, Florida Atlantic

Mazi Smith should be allowed to put on weight and move back to 1-tech but there's no guarantee this team will allow that since they used a first-round pick on him. Apparently, they would rather haver a draft bust on their hands than a first-round pick who can only play two downs.

Whatever they decide, the Cowboys can use more big bodies in the middle of the line which is what they land in Evan Anderson. The FAU product is 6-foot-3 and 356 pounds and excelled at stopping the run. In his senior season, he had 58 tackles with 3.5 sacks.
