We’re simply over per week away from the 2021 NFL Draft and it’s beginning to really feel like this is likely one of the extra predictable drafts for the Dallas Cowboys in a while. In all equity to the concept of predictability, nearly the entire world knew that America’s Workforce needed Leighton Vander Esch in 2018. One 12 months later, in equally predictable style, it was broadly speculated that the Cowboys had been closely in on Trysten Hill with their first decide (which wasn’t even till the second spherical).
This 12 months rivals, if not trumps, these two within the predictability division. It actually does really feel like only a matter of time till Patrick Surtain II can be given a Cowboys cap and jersey though what occurs through the draft’s first 9 picks will go a great distance at probably spicing issues up.
We carried out a first-round mock draft on a livestreamed episode of Talkin’ The Draft on Wednesday night and wound up taking Surtain at quantity 10. You may watch the stream in its entirety proper right here.
It’s assumed by many who the Cowboys can be taking the primary defensive participant off of the board once they decide subsequent Thursday night time, however that didn’t find yourself being the case within the draft that Connor Livesay, Dalton Miller, and Cole Patterson oversaw. The Denver Broncos took Penn State LB Micah Parsons at quantity 9 which clearly left the door open for Dallas to take their nook.
As famous, the style wherein the highest 10 (typically talking) shakes out will dramatically impression the Cowboys. Right here is how issues stood when Dallas was on the clock within the mock:
Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence
New York Jets: Zach Wilson
San Francisco 49ers: Trey Lance
Atlanta Falcons: Justin Fields
Cincinnati Bengals: Penei Sewell
Miami Dolphins: Kyle Pitts
Detroit Lions: Ja’Marr Chase
Carolina Panthers: Rashawn Slater
- Denver Broncos: Micah Parsons
Maybe probably the most locked-in of those picks for the time being appear to be Trevor Lawrence to Jacksonville, Zack Wilson to the Jets, and Penei Sewell to Cincinnati. The opposite names and groups might find yourself in plenty of completely different potential mixtures earlier than issues settle within the mock draft universe at quantity 10.
On this hypothetical the Cowboys in fact might have chosen South Carolina CB Jaycee Horn, and with solely one of many high 5 quarterbacks left (Alabama’s Mac Jones) it’s potential that one other crew might come calling.
This was the third mock draft that we livestreamed on our YouTube Channel and this time we additionally did it on our Fb web page as properly. We’re working in direction of doing extra of this stuff and would respect should you took the time to subscribe (which you are able to do so proper right here) as manufacturing will solely ramp up.
