Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft
Round 6, Pick 185
C James Empey
The Dallas Cowboys feel pretty good about their interior and reason to believe everyone will be back better than ever in 2021, but this move is about value. Even though they’re high on Tyler Biadasz and all he has to offer, they can’t resist James Empey on Day 3.
Empey has recently been regarded as one of the top center prospects in football and has the potential to be a legit starter in the NFL. He’s a great guy to bring in and push Biadasz right away. He doesn’t have a high ceiling and likely needs a year in the weight room, but the kid knows what he’s doing.
Round 6 Pick 219
WR Warren Jackson
We couldn’t go the entire draft without taking a stab as some tantalizing WR prospects could we? Warren Jackson is the enormous wide out from Colorado State you need to know.
At 6-foot-6, 215lbs, Jackson is a redzone beast who dominates 50/50 balls and creates mismatches everywhere he goes. Primarily an X receiver, Jackson will struggle with some press (as do most men his size) but if used inside like a TE or big slot, he’s a nightmare for defenses.
Round 7, Pick 231
SAF/CB Trey Dean III
I hope everyone’s noticing a theme with these defensive backs Dallas is bringing in. Will McClay is already drawn to big CBs with long arms, but now that a Cover 3 man is back in the building, expect those traits to carry even more weight.
Dean is 6-foot-3, 194 lbs. He thrives in press bail (cover 3) and can also cover tall TEs inside. He’s been used as a safety for the Gators as well and could project best in the same role with Dallas.
That’s it. That’s all she wrote. This was our first mock draft that focused on the trenches but we were still able to take a couple stabs at the secondary. Did we miss on anyone? Who do you like for Dallas in the draft.
