This is my final Dallas Cowboys’ 7-Round Mock Draft as the real NFL Draft gets underway on Thursday.
If you have missed my earlier Dallas Cowboys mock drafts, you can debate my ideas by clicking on the links below. I thank you for taking the time to read and comment.
In order to be fully prepared for my final mock draft, I honed in my research on the prospects the Dallas Cowboys have had discussions with. These conversations could have been conducted with a Pro Day, a Combine interview, or a single Private workout.
This method allows me to locate players that Dallas already showed an interest in. They have previously selected players with whom they have had prior contact prior to the draft.
An outlier is always a possibility.
I keep my drafting strategy rather straightforward. This isn’t a foolproof method, but it can help to identify draft prospects with ties to the Dallas Cowboys.
I’m not in favor of trading up in the draft. You let the draft come to you rather than trading up. Don’t throw away picks.
Why ask why?
"“There is talent in every round of every draft. The good drafters find it.”– Rick Gosselin"
Since the Dallas Cowboys were slated in the 26th position of the first round. I was willing to trade down, but not too far down.
My goal was collect as many draft picks within the top 100 of the draft. Reload the roster with young, low-cost talent. Knowing the Cowboys have some players who are in the final year of their contracts.
In addition, I’m utilizing the NFL draft to upgrade some areas and add more depth to other areas. The average roster turnover rate in the league these day is around 25 percent.
The undrafted prospects after the draft are not being taken into consideration. NFL talent acquisition is non-stop.
