Dallas Cowboys Round 7, Pick 238

Prediction: Paddy Fisher, LB

Paddy Fisher is one of those players who was a great college player but might not be fast or athletic enough for the pros. Paddy is a smart and experienced tackling machine. At 6-foot-3, 240lbs, he’s big enough for the game but his athletic testing says it doesn’t matter how big, smart, and driven is, he’s going to struggle.

Paddy is a high character player who’s best chance at making the team is as a special teamer. Think of him as a depth guy and camp body with intangibles.

Realistic Dream Pick: Zach Davidson, TE/Punter

Yes, you read that correctly. Zach Davidson is both a tight end and a punter. How’s that for position flex? Initially making the Central Missouri team as a punter, Davidson grew into the TE position and is still raw in that role. But with loads of natural ability, he’s only scratched the surface and dominated Division II his first year as the starter at TE.

His only full season at TE, Davidson put up 40 receptions for 894 yards and 15 touchdowns. He’s fast (4.62) fluid and has good pro potential but he’s going to take a while to develop to the pro level at both position. But visions of one day having a TE3/punter combo intrigues me greatly so he’s my developmental pick here.

Dallas Cowboys Draft Scenarios: Final Breakdown

In our Dallas Cowboys 7-round mock draft predictions we picked CB Patrick Surtain II, OT Liam Eichenberg, DT Marvin Wilson, LB Pete Warner, SAF/CB Sean Wade, DL Cameron Sample, WR Jaelon Darden, and LB Paddy Fisher.

I would have liked to walk away with a developmental TE and a true free safety but I just don’t see those overly high on the Dallas Cowboys list.

More from Cowboys Draft

In the realistic dream scenario (since we realistically expect Kyle Pitts to be gone) we traded back, picking up two extra second rounders (one in 2022) and selecting CB Caleb Farley, SAF Richie Grant, LB Jabril Cox, DT Alim McNeill, OT D’Ante Smith, WR Semi Fehoko, CB Keith Taylor, DE Elerson Smith, and TE/Punter Zach Davidson.

Getting that extra pick in the trade down scenario we were able to cover all levels of the Dallas Cowboys defense early – effectively rebuilding the unit. Plus we added a dominant deep threat at WR and a future starting LT.

The Dallas Cowboys have done a good job in staying tight-lipped throughout the draft process so absolutely nothing can be seen as a sure thing. But based on buzz, needs, and draft positioning we can speculate at how this will all go down. At the very least, it gives us a little insight.
