Dallas Cowboys 7-Round Mock NFL Draft

The Dallas Cowboys will have the No. 16 overall pick in the draft, and they have one pick in each of the first five rounds. They do not have a sixth-round pick, but they do have three picks in the seventh round. Keep in mind, we are still two months away from the draft and a lot can change between now and then. With that said, here is my first Dallas Cowboys 7-round mock draft.

Round 1, Aaron Donald, DT

I believe Aaron Donald is the player the Cowboys want. He fits the team’s defensive scheme perfectly. The only question is, will he still be there when Dallas goes on the clock? If he is there, the Cowboys will not pass on him.

Round 2, Lamarcus Joyner, CB

Lamarcus Joyner is a CB, but many scouts believe he will be converted to a safety in the NFL. Dallas really needs a safety. I could also see the Cowboys taking a LB or another DL in this spot, but ultimately, an athletic safety like Joyner will be too good to pass up.

Round 3, Jackson Jeffcoat, DL

For the third round, Dallas will stick with defense and continue to improve the defensive line by drafting Jackson Jeffcoat, the son of former Cowboys’ player Jim Jeffcoat. Jackson’s biggest strength is rushing the passer which is an area where Dallas desperately needs improvement.

Round 4, Cyril Richardson, OL

In round four I see Dallas looking to beef up their offensive line. A perfect candidate is Cyril Richardson. Dallas can plug Richardson in between Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick to make a stout left side of the line.

Round 5, Aaron Murray, QB

I believe Dallas has to draft a QB, and the one I like is Aaron Murray. Murray was injured last season, so he may slip a bit in the draft. Dallas could draft him, let him rehab and then groom him to be the future starter.

Round 7, Calvin Barnett, DL

Round 7, Calvin Barnett, DL

Dallas needs defensive line starters, and the more they pick, the better chance they have of hitting on one of them. Here I believe Dallas selects Calvin Barnett. Barnett is 6-foot-2 and weighs 300-pounds. With that size, he could be a nice run stopper in the middle of the defense.

Round 7, Aaron Lynch, DL

Dallas continues to stockpile defensive linemen as they take Aaron Lynch out of South Florida.

Round 7, Max Bullough, LB

Round 7, Max Bullough, LB

Dallas needs to add a linebacker. Preferably they would have done so earlier in the draft, but it didn’t work out that way. Instead, Dallas will take Max Bullough, the LB out of Michigan State.
