Welcome to our Dallas Cowboys 7 round Mock Draft. Once again, we used Fanspeak Mock Draft Simulator to keep us honest and run through a realistic simulation. I did not manipulate the draft. I simply made choices based on what was available at the time of the pick. All NFL team needs were assessed and player rankings were based on those of renowned NFL Draft Guru, Walter Football. We played this simulation by the book and these are the results.
Follow with us through all 11 draft picks as we unveil what can realistically happen this weekend at the NFL Draft.
Jan 7, 2013; Miami, FL, USA; Alabama Crimson Tide defensive back Ha
FS Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
6’1” 208 lbs
The simulation started largely as expected. The annual, Run on Offensive Linemen began early and by the time the Cowboys went on the clock, the top 5 were taken. Also off the board were Clowney, Mack, Donald, Barr, Watkins, Ealy, and Crichton. The top rated player on my board was Mike Evans but only slightly behind him on my rankings was the top safety, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is the premier free safety ballhawk of the 2014 draft. Blessed with amazing natural ability, Clinton-Dix has speed, agility, hip fluidity, and arm length needed to thrive as a FS in the NFL. Clinton-Dix has extraordinary ballskills which more than make up for anything he lacks in bulk.
Ha Ha is best suited as a deep coverage safety meaning the Cowboys can move Barry Church closer to the line of scrimmage without fear of repercussions in the secondary. Ha Ha can immediately step into the starting role and allow J.J. Wilcox time to develop.
