Dallas Cowboys Final 7-Round 2015 NFL Mock Draft

8 of 9

Houston. Joey Mbu. 7. player. 123. <p>Despite the glaring need at the 1-technique defensive tackle position, which is the position in the interior part of the defensive line next to 3-technique defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford, I think the Cowboys will wait until the later rounds to address the positions. The reasons why are below:</p> <ol> <li>1-techniques do not stay on the field for passing downs, so the position really is only for a run-stopper.</li> <li>The Cowboys brought in no defensive tackles for pre-draft visits, so there’s a small chance that they may not even address the position, and instead rely on younger defensive tackles like Davon Coleman and/or Chris Whaley.</li> </ol> <p>In the seventh round, it’s basically who’s left on your board, and one local product that makes sense is Houston’s Joey Mbu. He doesn’t have the best size at 6-foot-3, 315 pounds, but Mbu uses his hands extremely well and he has a nonstop motor to go with it. These two traits will be welcomed with open arms by Rod Marinelli.</p>. DT
