Round 7 – Pick 231

Braden Mann – Punter – Texas A&M

I am usually not someone who likes to spend a draft pick on a kicker, but with the needs the Cowboys have at punter and the extra picks gathered from the first round trade down, this should not be a problem. If Mann isn’t there then Joseph Charlton should be considered.

The Cowboys need a lot of work on special teams and one of the weak spots last year was the punting game. Mann would immediately step in and add a weapon the Cowboys did not have last year. Mann is easily the best punter in this draft and with a 47.1 yard average last year, he would be able to flip the field and help pin teams deep.

Mann can also do kickoffs and is a solid tackler. He played in Texas so the Cowboys are probably fairly familiar with Mann and if they gain some extra picks should grab him before he hits undrafted free agency. Not the sexiest of picks, but a necessary one.

The Wrap-up

The Cowboys may go with a second receiver, but with this class as deep as it is there could be some really solid talent that doesn’t get drafted. One of the names to watch for after the draft would be Joe Reed out of Virginia a dynamic player with the ball in his hands, but needs a lot of work in route running. There are some other players who could fall out of the draft, but we will review those when they happen.

With a very odd draft cycle, it is possible the Cowboys could rely more on their pre-draft visits than even in prior years. One of the very real possibilities are that the Cowboys could trade some picks for proven players as they didn’t get a chance to see a lot of players on the field in pre-draft visits. The question will be who and for what picks.

With only a few days left before the draft, the Cowboys will be in the news cycle. The boards could be totally strange this year, and chaos could easily erupt. One thing is for certain, the Cowboys will add players. Now we wait to see who.
