Dallas Cowboys 2022 7-round mock draft

Round 3, Pick 88

Cam Taylor-Britt, CB


Ooooooo, baby. Have you seen Cam Taylor-Britt? The ultra-physical CB from Nebraska came to play at the Senior Bowl and after chipping his tooth in practice and told to sit out, he opted to get the thing pulled and went back on the field.

At 6-foot 205lbs, Taylor-Britt isn’t the biggest CB out there. But he’s naturally aggressive (in a good way) and will stand up to the run, fight through blocks, as well as challenge passes and play with ball skills.

Cam Taylor-Britt is scheme diverse but looks best in zone when he can keep his eyes on the QB. He projects as a boundary CB in Dallas who can and will play special teams and play them well. As a tackler, Cam is like a box safety. He likes contact and likes fighting through blocks and hunting in the open field or in traffic. He’s the perfect “yin” to Trevon Diggs’ “yang”.

On paper the Dallas Cowboys appear set at cornerback but looks can be deceiving and that’s why I consider CB to be a legit need and not just a sneaky need like others like to think it is.

We still don’t know what we have opposite Diggs. Kelvin Joseph is very untested, Anthony Brown is better inside, Jourdan Lewis can’t play outside, and Nahshon Wright isn’t a starting option. Cam Taylor-Britt is a need at CB while also serving as tweener at SAF – another position of need in Dallas.

I’m not exactly sure where he fits on Day 1 but I know there’s a role for CTB in this Dallas secondary because he fits in a variety of different ways. He’s a dog and DQ loves dogs.
