5. DeMarvion Overshown, LB, Texas

Once the Cowboys saw how much success Jayron Kearse has had in this system as a safety-linebacker hybrid who feasts near the line of scrimmage, it's no wonder Will McClay found his eventual replacement. Just think about it in reverse for Overshown. He can come in as a three-down linebacker with the speed to cover tight ends and running backs. Possibly having two of them on the field at the same time would make things very tough on quarterbacks. His pass-rushing tape leaves something to be desired but he should have an immediate impact on special teams while he adjusts to life in the NFL.

Grade: B-

6. Junior Fehoko, DE, San Jose State

The Cowboys have to find themselves an eventual replacement for defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence and Fehoko fits the mold. A left defensive end that can set the edge and also rush the passer. His ability to drop inside and beat guards with his quick first step also reminds me of Lawrence. Fehoko was one of the best run defenders in the Mountain West the last couple years and the potential of him converting to a 3-technique defensive tackle is exciting.

Grade: B
