Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft

Round 6, Pick 222

TE Shaun Beyer


We all know Iowa, much like Stanford, produces strong tight end prospects.  They typically come out well developed and more refined than your typical TE. Even those who had meager receiving stats at Iowa, tend to perform better in the pros. Sean Beyer could be the next Iowa TE to do that.

He’s 6-foot-5, 246lbs. who can play in-line or motion into the slot. He’s a developmental guy who could challenge for that TE3 spot as a rookie. He’s not flashy in anyway so those hoping for the next Rico Gathers experiment will be disappointed. But he could be the next Dalton Schultz and that’s pretty darn good.

Round 7, Pick 234

CB/SAF Trill Williams


For the life of me I can’t figure out why Trill Williams is consistently a seventh rounder in mock drafts. The kid is talented and experienced. Trill is nearly 6-foot-1 and weighs 198lbs.  He’s said to run an easy 4.4 40, and has versatility to play either nickel cornerback or safety. I don’t like him on the outside but love him inside the box in either DB capacity.

If the Dallas Cowboys really do move Reggie Robinson back to cornerback, I can see Trill being an excellent replacement to Robinson as a developmental safety hybrid.

Dallas Cowboys Draft Recap

Dallas recognized they had a CB1 in Trevon Diggs and with the move back to Cover 3, they felt they could put off the CB position to Day 2 in the draft. It allowed them to pick a position they value higher, edge rusher, with their top pick.

On Day 2 they added a starting safety and their starting outside CB in Grant and St-Juste, respectively. Then they added an intriguing SAF/LB prospect to offer them tremendous match up ability followed by a developmental DT, LB, slot receiver, and Warren G’s kid. All of them have would be likely to make the roster and all have intriguing ceilings.

Finally, Dallas picks a couple developmental kids at TE and CB/SAF that are more long-term projects. In all, I’m very pleased since I think St-Juste can be a great starting CB in Quinn’s system and I expect Dallas will have addressed DT1 in free agency.
