Dallas Cowboys 7-Round Mock Draft Nightmare Scenario

Round 5, pick 175

TE Charlie Kolar

Iowa State

Charlie Kolar is one of the more intriguing prospects late in the draft. He’s a 6-foot-6 255lb Y-TE who would easily fit what Kellen Moore’s offense demands from their TEs. He’s smart and versatile and is the perfect developmental player for a team looking for a TE.

The biggest problem with this is so many tantalizing prospects are already off the board. This draft is littered with talent in the third round and we know through historical data, the third round range is when teams tend to get the most value from the TE position.

Sadly the Dallas Cowboys were busy filling holes they didn’t have an opportunity to pounce on the wonderful opportunity staring them in the face.

Another problem is the Dallas Cowboys don’t have a lot of time to develop. They are probably cutting ties with Blake Jarwin after news of his rare hip injury was leaked this week, so they need an immediate contributor to fill his fairly large role of TE2. TE is a notoriously difficult position to learn and while Kolar may be a great player in two or three years, he’s not the answer in 2022.

The value of this draft at the TE position is in the 3rd-4th rounds. A handful of capable contributors can be found there and that’s where the Dallas Cowboys should focus their strength.
