Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Roundup 3.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Dallas Cowboys from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Dallas Cowboys, check out our Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Database.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Cowboys:

CBS Sports - Chris Trapasso (1/20)

24. Devonte Wyatt, IDL, Georgia

Wyatt has a lightning-quick first step, and the Cowboys have to get sturdier on the interior of their defensive line.

ESPN - Mel Kiper (1/19)

24. Travon Walker, EDGE, Georgia

Dallas had a disappointing playoff exit, but it still has a lot of young talent, led by do-it-all rookie linebacker Micah Parsons. The organization, however, has looming decisions on several free agents, including Randy Gregory, Dalton Schultz, Michael Gallup, Connor Williams, Leighton Vander Esch and Jayron Kearse. That means we're going to know in March who the Cowboys have prioritized as guys to bring back and which positions will actually be needs by the time the draft rolls around in late April. Every team covets edge rushers, though.

Walker, whom McShay recently called "one of the most underrated prospects in the class," stands out every time I watch the loaded Georgia defense. He can blow up tackles at the point of attack, and he has the physical traits to chase down ball carriers in the run game. At 6-foot-5 and 275 pounds, he has some scheme versatility at the next level.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (1/19)

24. Kenyon Green, IOL, Texas A&M

Left guard Connor Williams, who probably played his final game in Dallas on Saturday, was a liability for most of the Cowboys' wild-card game, and the 49ers took advantage. Although Green played predominantly at left guard for the Aggies, he also logged starts at left tackle, right tackle and right guard in 2021 and would give Dallas a versatile blocker who can fill in at several positions if needed.

PFF - Austin Gayle (1/17)

24. Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson

Booth, a former five-star recruit, is an aggressive tackler and smooth athlete who improved his PFF grade every year of his Clemson career. The 6-foot, 195-pounder closed the 2021 season with a 78.7 PFF coverage grade, having allowed just 29 receptions for 312 yards on 46 targets. He also allowed just two touchdowns while logging three pass breakups and three picks.

Baltimore Sun - C.J. Doon (1/14)

28. Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State

After helping the Cowboys' defense make a huge leap this season, safeties Jayron Kearse, Damontae Kazee and Malik Hooker are all hitting free agency. The 6-1, 200-pound Brisker blossomed from a junior college transfer into one of the best safeties in the country, recording 9 1/2 tackles for loss, five interceptions and 14 pass breakups in two seasons as a starter.

Athlon Sports - Bryan Fischer (1/13)

29. DeMarvin Leal, IDL, Texas A&M

Jerry Jones has turned in several great drafts in a row that has delivered some high-end talent to the roster and Leal could add to the haul. His quickness off the line is underrated and he could become even more dangerous given what might surround him in Big D along the line.

San Diego Union Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/13)

29. Jordan Battle, S, Alabama

The three players who played the most snaps at safety for the Cowboys this season are set to become free agents. Battle features the speed and athleticism to play center field or defend both sidelines, but he excels as a run defender.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (1/12)

28. Daxton Hill, S, Michigan

Even if defensive coordinator Dan Quinn lands a head coaching job elsewhere, Dallas no doubt will want to keep alive the playmaking approach he has installed, which has resulted in a league-best 34 takeaways. While Hill only recorded four interceptions in three years, his rare speed and extensive range indicate his best is yet to come in this area, positioning him as a worthy option at a spot in which the Cowboys have long underinvested.

For The Win - Charles McDonald (1/12)

28. Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State

Brisker would be a nice fit at free safety for the Cowboys. If they're able to retain defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, Brisker can slide in as an immediate starter in his scheme.

The Draft Network - Joe Marino (1/10)

28. Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State

The Cowboys have become a big-play defense with the negative plays and takeaways it creates, and I can't help but get excited about adding a ball-hawking safety to the defense. That's exactly what they would get in Jaquan Brisker.

Brisker thrives as a deep-middle defender where his ability to make plays on the ball and trigger downhill shine. He's a perfect scheme fit for Dan Quinn's defense.
