Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft

Round 5, Pick 179

Ambry Thomas, CB


We’ve only drafted one cornerback thus far and really need to get out of the draft with two since both Chido and Lewis expected to be gone. Ifeatu Melifonwu is a pretty safe pick to start in Week 1 so the Dallas Cowboys can go a few ways here.

Ambry Thomas is someone who could go as early as 100 or as late as 200. The 6-foot-0 189 lb. CB from Michigan opted out in 2020, which could ding him in a few scouts’ notebooks. In 34 games played, Thomas logged four interceptions and 54 tackles. He has some good film and has a willingness to compete, but he might slip through the cracks in the Draft. He’s someone I’d consider as early as pick 115.

Round 6, Pick 193

Divine Deablo SAF/LB

Virginia Tech

At 6-foot-3 226 lbs. many are projecting Divine Deablo to be a better linebacker prospect than safety. Considering there’s some overlap, I’m calling him both. As a pure safety Deablo is fairly unathletic the deeper he plays, but as a linebacker he stands out as a plus coverage guy.


Dan Quinn’s defense demands a lot from its linebackers when in coverage. That’s why we drafted an elite coverage LB like Cox in Round 3, and that’s why we’re picking Deablo here.
