In this 7-round mock draft, the Dallas Cowboys play the board and go heavy on offense, addressing the weakest area of their team.
Unlike most offseasons, the Dallas Cowboys find themselves in a pretty workable situation this year. While they still have plenty of needs to address, the magnitude of such needs pales in comparison to many previous offseason to-do lists.
It’s a good thing too, because Dallas is without their first round pick in 2019. As many remember, Dallas’ first round selection was sent to the Raiders in exchange for WR Amari Cooper. Cooper’s dominance with the Dallas Cowboys is one of the major reasons the Cowboys are where they are right now. Not only did he boost them to the playoffs, but he seemingly answered their long-term question at receiver (A contract extension is expected as some point).
That doesn’t mean the Dallas Cowboys are settled at the receiver position, though. With Terrance Williams and Allen Hurns likely cap casualties, and Cole Beasley spreading his free agent wings, the Cowboys are very much in the market for receivers.
Considering the weakest part of their team last season was the air attack, a heavy investment is expected in the NFL Draft to correct their passing game. And that’s where we find ourselves heading into the first round.
Mock Draft Notes: Like all of our mock drafts we’ve utilized the Fanspeak mock draft simulator. Since much can change in coming months, I used both their player ratings as well as my own personal ratings to make selections.
In other words – If a player was rated #121 on the Fanspeak big board but I think that player will really be a top-50 player once the draft rolls around, I’ll assume that player to be gone when I select in the second round. My goal is to be as realistic as possible. With that said, some players I value higher than others and I’m sure I’ll select someone in a late round that could very well be an early Day 2 pick.
With all of that said…
