Cowgirlcas' 2013 Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft #1

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

It seems like just yesterday we were gearing up for last year’s Senior Bowl and all the hype and speculation surrounding the draft was running rampant. Gosh, where does the time go? Another NFL season has come and pretty much gone, and here we are in the exact same position as last year. Once again, the Dallas Cowboys playoff hopes come down to the last game of the season. That being said, the Cowboys need to get better, and building a better team starts with the draft, so I am going to join in the fun and post my first Dallas Cowboys 2013 Mock draft.

If the Dallas Cowboys lose to the Washington Redskins on Sunday night, they will more than likely have the 18th pick in the 2013 NFL draft. It has been obvious all year long that the Dallas Cowboys major weakness is the offensive line. If I had to prioritize. I would say the defensive line takes a close second because it is lacking as well. If there is one thing that is certain, it is that the game of football is won in the trenches. You will clearly see in this mock that I draft for need, not for flash. The loss of Josh Brent, and possibly Anthony Spencer creates the need for a solid NT and an OLB as well. I listed my current top 3 players for each round.

Keep in mind that things will most likely change. As the 2013 season draws closer, I will do periodic updates. After the Senior Bowl and the combine, I will post an analysis for each player in my mock. My final mock draft will list my player of choice for each round along with my analysis.

(Ball is an exception to my rule. If he is on the board when the Cowboys draft in the 3rd round, this is a no brainer with Felix being in a contract year and Murray’s injury issues.)
