Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft

Round 3, Pick 74

CB Benjamin St-Juste


Cornerback is arguably the biggest draft need the Dallas Cowboys have. With Chido likely gone, Dallas needs a starter. Normally that’s a pick you’d make in the first round. As I’ve detailed before, if you seriously want to find a legit CB1 for your team, you need to get him in the first round.

But the Dallas Cowboys might have already found their CB1. Just last week we made the case Trevon Diggs is on a Pro Bowl trajectory early in his career. As such, the Dallas Cowboys don’t need to find a CB1 in this draft. They simply need a CB2 to pair with him.

Going back to the familiar Cover-3 looks of yesteryear, the Cowboys rely heavily on “traits.” Finding a guy who can play the sideline and keep the windows tight is a must. And St-Juste fits the bill to a tee.

Benjamin St-Juste was another standout from the Senior Bowl who quickly became one of my favorite targets. The 6-foot-3 200lbs French Canadian was a feisty pest at cornerback over the week. He matched up and handled a variety of receivers, never looking overmatched or awkward in coverage.

He showed Cover-3 ability with strong recovery skills, bump and chase technique, and ball skills. He made a lot of money that week and endeared himself in the minds of many scouts.
