End Of March Mock Draft

I should preface this mock by saying it was composed with the assumption that Jerry signs O.J. Atogwe away from the Rams, releases Ken Hamlin and is counting on one of the youngsters such as Marquis Floyd, Jesse Holley etc. making the team as a versatile return man.

27. Markise Pouncey G/C Florida
Pouncey is a strong and versitile lineman that brings youth and depth to the aging O-Line. Markise will compete with Kosier for the left guard spot and provide solid depth at center should Gurode go down.

59.  Brandon Ghee CB Wake Forest
Brandon ran an impressive 4.37 40 yd. dash at the Combine and completely shut down receiver Demaryius Thomas earlier in the year. With Newman getting up there in age, more solid depth is needed in the secondary and the 6 ft. 200 lb. speedster is a great addition.

90. Major Wright FS Florida
After signing O.J.Atogwe away from the Rams and releasing 2009 starter Ken Hamlin, depth is needed at the safety position and Major comes from a long line of impressive Florida safeties. Major has good size, speed and instincts making this a solid choice in the third round.

125. Tony Washington OT Abilene Christian
Jerry said the biggest focus of this draft was to get younger on the O-Line and with the selections of Pouncey and Washington, he does just that. Washington is a 6ft. 6in., 311 lb. Tackle with 35.5in. arms. Free is projected to be the successor on the left side, so an upgrade will be needed on the right. Washington will be an upgrade over McQuistan who never developed into a quality tackle.

196.  John Connor FB/H-Back Kentucky
The Cowboys select a versatile FB in the sixth round after releasing Deon “Crickett” Anderson. Connor will be asked to block for the three-headed monster, catch passes out of the back-field and play special teams.

234. Brett Swenson K Michigan State
Jerry takes a late round flier on a kicker. Swenson will compete with Connor Hughes and David Buehler for placekicking duties. BTW, who’s going to hold this year?

    Try spelling names right

      Derek, no offense, but you seem to be very critical of most posts on LSS and you don’t normally do it in a nice way. Is there a reason for that?

      Thats my bad, I should have edited better when I posted this blog.

      Do yall have any insight on the draft or this mock other than spelling errors?

    Lets not forget that there is a chance Flozell might be released in June. The Cowboys would like Free to take his place, but we still need some quality depth.

      True,Rob. Maybe a tackle should be taken a little higher, especially with such a weak class this year for how we like ‘em. Maybe pass on Major Wright in the 3rd and pick up a tackle a grade higher like Ed Wang from Virginia Tech. Then get the safety depth back with a guy like Robert Johnson from Utah.

    I think I spelled Atogwe wrong at the beginning after I just looked after the original here on my computer. My bad. Kelly, you shouldn’t have to proof read for spelling errors. I need to look over my submissions a little better before sending them in. I do appreciate you posting them though. You know how I love going into detail about my random Cowboys thoughts. For me, it’s part of the fun of being a Cowboys fan and being a part of the family.
