Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft

Round 4, Pick 115

DT, Bobby Brown III

Texas A&M

The Dallas Cowboys had arguably the worst DT rotation in the NFL last year and while we expect some organic improvement from young guys like Neville Gallimore and Trysten Hill, it’s not going to even approach “serviceable” levels unless new pieces are added.

Traditionally, interior defensive linemen take time to develop. Rarely do they make much of an impact their rookie years and since this year’s class is devoid of top-end talent, it will probably hold true again. Because of this, we’re making defensive tackles our primary focus in free agency.

If the Cowboys open their wallets for anyone, it’ll probably be here at DT. That’s why we’re operating under the assumption Dallas has added a front-line starter in free agency and whoever they pick up in the draft will likely be a developmental piece behind Hill and Gallimore.

Bobby Brown is picking up momentum in the draft community these days. The 6-foot-4, 315 lb. tackle is densely built and strong as an ox. He plays low and is not easily moved. In other words, he’s someone we really could have used last year.

What makes him a target for Dallas is his quickness through the A-Gap and potential to offer a little pressure. Dallas hates drafting DTs without any pass-rush ability and Brown seems to have just enough at the 1-technique to qualify.

Some may say I’m waiting too long to address the DT position but I say, waiting for Bobby Brown is “my prerogative”. Get it ? Bobby Brown….I’m really so sorry.
