Dallas Cowboys Pick 219
Reggie Roberson Jr. WR
Reggie Roberson Jr., SMU’s big play threat outside, is YAC machine. No game is out of reach when he’s on the field and while he’s specialized, he’s far from a 1-trick pony.
It will be interesting to see if his timed speed translates to his game speed because the film shows a guy who always gets it done. He reminds me of Cedrick Wilson coming out, in regards to his big play ability and knack for YAC.
On the Dallas Cowboys he fits in right behind the aforementioned Wilson and serves as Wilson’s potential replacement since Wilson is only under team control for one more season.
Dallas Cowboys Pick 231
Shaun Beyer, TE
Call me sucker for Iowa tight ends but this seems like a solid move to add a developmental prospect to Dallas’ stable of young TEs. The Dallas Cowboys are actually pretty solid in their TE ranks…
Blake Jarwin is expected to be back 100% in 2021 and figures to reclaim his role as TE1 in the Dallas offense. Dalton Schultz, the surprise standout of 2020, slides into more of a TE2 role where his blocking is better utilized. And my pick for TE3, Cole Hikutini, has intriguing upside himself.
There’s no urgency to add a TE to the active roster mix and picking up a developmental guy like Beyer could be the smart way to go. Especially since Dalton Schultz probably played his way right out of Dallas (in 2022).

The main theme of this draft was to find the most value at positions of importance and need. I targeted my favorite prospects that I believe to be undervalued right now. I fully expect many of them to increase their position on most draft boards in coming weeks.
That said, I kept things consistent according to the Draft Network mock Draft simulator and their player rankings and didn’t attempt any long-shot 1-100 draft steals.
The purpose of mock drafts isn’t to predict, per say, but to find value and outline different avenues of success (or failure) for a team to navigate a complete 7-round draft. Take a spin yourself and share your results below!
