Dallas Cowboys 7-Round Mock Draft

Round 7, Pick 232

Jamar Watson, SAM/EDGE


The last pick is usually about taking a shot. Jamar Watson doesn’t have an immediate path to the roster in Dallas based on his size and the position he plays.

Ideally, Watson would join a 3-4 team and play EDGE, but on the Dallas Cowboys I like him for SAM linebacker with opportunities to blitz off the edge.


Watson was a highly productive player for Kentucky and has athleticism that translates. He’s not big enough for edge in Dallas but he’s a football player and there’s always room for them.

To recap:

  • Dallas traded back 5 spots and sent Michael Gallup to NE for their top-2 picks and Stephon Gilmore.
  • Dallas picked Christian Barmore with their top pick to address the middle of their defensive line then going with Carlos Basham at man the edge. Both add pressure and run stopping ability.
  • We got crazy with the NE pick and drafted Tutu, the fastest man in the draft to play WR3/4 with Cedrick Wilson
  • We added a high potential OT to develop behind Tyron and La’el as well.
  • We added a perfect boundary CB in St-Juste to learn behind Diggs and Gilmore and a pair of safeties to duke it out at FS and in the slot.
  • The Dallas Cowboys also picked up a 1-tech run-stopper late along with a pair of LBs to develop behind Jaylon and LVE (who I think both will be back for 1 more season).

At the end of the day we filled a lot of needs and that started trading from a position of strength to add at an area of weakness. We used our cap situation and easy to manipulate contracts to create room for an otherwise depressed market.
