Dallas Cowboys 2022 7-round mock draft
Round 6, Pick 200
Dameon Pierce, RB
With the last pick we picked up arguably my favorite running back prospect in this draft. Based on draft position and skillset, Dameon Pierse is both a major bargain and an official pet cat of mine.
First, Pierce is an elite pass protector. Playing on a 5-foot-10 215lbs frame, he’s a load in the backfield to get around. With a low base, plus strength, and solid technique, he’s a late down back you want picking up the inside blitz.
Watching him pass protect was one of the most entertaining things to see this last week. And in today’s NFL, it’s also one of the most important things a RB can do. Primarily seen as a between-the-tackles short yardage back, Pierce could have a role in Dallas’ crowded backfield.
The surprising trait for Pierce was his ability to catch balls. The kid has great hands and a very applicable skill set as a pass catcher.
What I love about Pierce is that Ezekiel Elliott is almost certain to be gone in 2023. Which mean the Dallas Cowboys need a good runner between the tackles and short yardage specialist. It’s perfect for Pierce.
The Dallas Cowboys absolutely win here based on the recent standouts from the Senior Bowl. I truly believe many of these players will rise (and some will inevitably fall) but for the sake of uniformity and accuracy I believe in the big board of TDN more than my own gut instinct.
