The Dallas Cowboys are in the NFL offseason and are once again in need of some people that show proficiency at the cornerback position. After the departure of Chidobe Awuzie to Cincinnati, it is a very likely possibility the Cowboys try to sign someone new in free agency. However, even if such a transaction were to take place, that likely wouldn’t change the probability of the team trying to draft one in the NFL Draft seven rounds at their disposal.

It is now T-33 days before the NFL Draft, which means it’s time to revive an old series of mine; 7 Rounds of a Certain Position. Not only were these great for bringing in new views, but it is also useful for whoever reads this to understand the best places to target a specific position.

The Dallas Cowboys have options at cornerback in each round of the NFL Draft

As fans, everyone gets caught up in drafting based on need when the smart option has always been going best player available (BPA). If teams can apply the best player available approach while still recognizing a need, they can find great value in later rounds. Last year was no different as the Cowboys were able to draft Trevon Diggs and Reggie Robinson in the second and fourth rounds respectively; both were steals relative to their draft position. (At least according to the Cowboys)

Even though free agency has been fairly silent from the Star, the front office and coaching staff certainly recognize the need for the cornerback position.

The team currently has Trevon Diggs, Jourdan Lewis, and veteran Anthony Brown on contract for several years. The current fit would suggest they are eyeing an outside cornerback to pair with Diggs. However, if a good slot option were to appear, more competition wouldn’t be a bad thing for that spot either since both Brown and Lewis ranked outside PFF’s top-80.

Last year, I used The Draft Network’s mock draft simulator. This year I have switched over to the Pro Football Networks draft simulator. Do check out both websites as they produce great content and are always up to date on draft projections. My switch was just meant to shake things up.

Lastly, no picks will be traded. This would largely defeat the purpose of this article. With the number of picks the team has, they can likely find their guy at any point in the draft. Think of this as a mock draft of cornerbacks.

Let’s get it!
