Dallas Cowboys 2022 7-round mock draft
Round 5, Pick 166
Greg Dulcich, TE
Greg Dulcich is another who impressed over Senior Bowl week. The tight end from UCLA was always an interesting prospect, we just didn’t know how he’d look inline or against a different field of competition. Color me impressed.
At 6-foot-4, 250lbs, Dulcich isn’t a giant by any means, but he held his own in blocking assignments and looks like he could develop into a true multi-tooled prospect at the TE position. Not unlike Dalton Schultz, it will take some time to develop, but there’s no reason to think Dulcich can’t develop into a Y-TE and future TE1 someday.
The Dallas Cowboys will in all likelihood be losing Dalton Schultz this season. He’s going to be far too costly to re-sign and cheaper options are out there. Blake Jarwin could be re-elevated to the TE1 role, allowing blocking specialist Sean McKeon and Greg Dulcich to work behind him.
Dulcich’s game is highlighted by his ability to get downfield. Clocked at 18.41 mph he’s a threat down the seam and finished 2021 with 725 yards and a 17.3 yards per catch average.
Besides having pretty awesome hair, Dulcich has a great demeanor and likeable personality for coaches. He’s technically sound (very sound) as a route-runner and should have no problems creating separation and finding space in the pros.
Rated by TDN as the 218th prospect, I have a hard time believing anyone would let him slip this far, let alone make it to Round 7. But as I do in all early mock drafts, I’m not tinkering with what the pros decide and I’ll gladly take one of my favorite TEs two rounds after I thought I’d have to.
That said, this is a very deep TE class so a few are going to slip through the cracks. I doubt anyone will instantly be able to serve as Dallas’ TE1 from this class so I’m happy to develop someone like Schultz again.
