With Edmunds smith and james all off the board the cowboys elect to trade down. Getting pick 13 in the second round and an extra 4th.
Round 1 Pick 31 (N.E.): Bryan, Taven, DT/DE, Florida – Penetrating DT with comparisons to JJ Watt… Hard nosed player that has amazing get off and great functional strength. Potentially saves the cowboys from shelling out big bucks to Irving next year.
Round 2 Pick 13 (G.B.): Okoronkwo, Ogbonnia, DE/OLB- Pass rushing Beast. Great first step and surprising power. Could potentially start day one at RDE or at Strong side LB. I believe he is the best pass rusher in this class.
Round 2 Pick 18 (DAL): Jefferson, Malik, ILB, Texas- The pick here came down between WR or LB Jewl… I chose Jefferson based off of the fact he is a hard nosed player with high character and great athletic ability. Jefferson is a bit raw but playing next to sean lee I believe he could learn fast.
Round 3 Pick 17: Edmunds, Terrell, SS, Virginia Tech – Playmaking S that we desperately need. Can cover well in man or zone and can tackle in the open field.
*** trade… two fourths and two sixths to move up and take…
Round 3 Pick 24 (DAL): Jones, Jamarco, OT, Ohio State- The cowboys believe Jones to be a starting OT in a year. One who can start at LT or RT. A big man that is Athletic much like tyron smith.
Round 4 Pick 16: Scarbrough, Bo, RB, Alabama- Another big athletic rb to pound the rock. If Elliot misses time the cowboys don’t miss a beat.
Round 5 Pick 34: Fountain, Daurice, WR, Northern Iowa – This one is for my friend tom! Athletic wr with solid size… Will go up and get the ball. To good of talent to pass up… BPA approach with this pick. He is such a talent I have no doubt he will make the team. Bad news for Williams or beasly.
Round 6 Pick 34: DeLuca, Nick, ILB, North Dakota State- Im going to back up my bid for a starting mike lb… if Jefferson can not get down the mental aspect… I am sure this guy can. Small school LB with a nose for the football.
