Assuming the core group of guys the Dallas Cowboys will want are off the board, let’s look at a mock draft if the Cowboys trade down.

There is a likelihood that the Dallas Cowboys will stay put at 17 and draft someone they want, but there is also a possibility they can’t find someone to trade with and have to pick. And there’s also a possibility one of the top quarterbacks fall and they are able to trade down in the first round.

We’ve explored all of these situations over the past few week, but today we’re just going to focus on the last situation. Let’s say the Patriots want a QB and when QB3 or QB4 is on the board at 17, The Pats ask Dallas to trade up for one of the falling quarterbacks.

In this scenario the Cowboys would trade the 17th pick and in return get the Patriots 23, 87, 125, and 213. That would mean an extra 3rd, 4th, and 6th – not a bad return for one of the QBs and to give some needed depth for the Cowboys. This could allow them to trade up and down in coming rounds, however, for this exercise let’s keep the picks we got with the one trade and see who we get.

The mocks were done with DraftNetwork and PFN, and the boards were a combination of both and my own board. I also used some of the predraft interviews as a reference to position and players in some cases. Let’s dive in!
