Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Roundup 4.0

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.

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

SI - Kevin Hanson (2/17)

24. Kenyon Green, IOL, Texas A&M

The highly-penalized Connor Williams will become a free agent, so the Cowboys need an upgrade/replacement at left guard. A three-year starter, Green started at RG in 2019 and LG in '20, and showed off his versatility in '21 by making starts at four different positions--all but center--along the offensive line.

Yahoo! Sports - Eric Edholm (2/17)

24. Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan

The Austrian-born Raimann, whose love for the game came from watching "Friday Night Lights" as a kid, lands with America's Team. Perfect. The Cowboys have not used a top-50 pick on an offensive lineman since Connor Williams in 2018, and the time might be nigh for one with Tyron Smith's and La'el Collins' declines. Raimann is new to playing tackle but possesses the kind of rare traits to be a star in time.

Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (2/17)

24. Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn

Trevon Diggs has obviously emerged as one of the NFL's best playmakers at corner, but the rest of the group in Dallas needs work. McCreary was a shutdown artist every week, dominating some of the SEC's best pass-catchers with regularity, which should make him as pro-ready as any corner in this year's deep class.

ESPN - Todd McShay (2/16)

24. David Ojabo, EDGE, Michigan

Dallas drafted a star in Micah Parsons last April, but the linebacker was forced into more of an edge rush role last season due to injuries. The question for Dallas is where does it want to predominantly play him going forward. In my eyes, the key is to answer that question and then focus on the other area. Free Parsons up to be even more dominant. The Cowboys could look hard at the linebacker crop and let Parsons rush the QB more, but it'd be difficult for them to pass on Ojabo. Parsons had 13 sacks, but Randy Gregory (six) and Dorance Armstrong (five) were the only other Dallas players to have at least four -- and both are free agents. Ojabo's 11 sacks tied for 11th in the nation last season, and his lightning-fast first step and high-end instincts create problems for blockers.

With Dalton Schultz hitting free agency, Dallas could kick the tires on Colorado State tight end Trey McBride, too. He's a matchup problem with elite ball skills. But I think it's a little early.

Fox Sports - Rob Rang (2/16)

24. Daxton Hill, S, Michigan

Given that the Cowboys led the NFL with 26 interceptions in 2021, investing their top pick in a defensive back might seem unnecessary -- until, that is, you realize that three of the four safeties on the roster are unrestricted free agents, including starters Damontae Kazee and Jayron Kearse.

Hill, frankly, is better in coverage than either, possessing the fluidity and speed to be moved all over the field at Michigan.

USA Today - Nate Davis (2/15)

24. Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah

Let's not compare him to newly crowned Defensive Rookie of the Year Micah Parsons ... but let's admit Lloyd also possesses an all-around skill set that allows him to be a multi-faceted weapon as Parsons is. And pairing them? Nasty. And this wouldn't be a luxury pick given the release of Jaylon Smith and seemingly imminent exits of Leighton Vander Esch and Keanu Neal.

The Ringer - Danny Kelly (2/15)

24. Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah

The Cowboys had more than a little bit of success with their last linebacker--pass rusher hybrid in Micah Parsons, so why not double-dip here by grabbing Lloyd? Lloyd isn't the pass rusher that Parsons is, but he's versatile and rangy playing off the ball and gives Dallas some reinforcements with both Keanu Neal and Leighton Vander Esch heading to free agency.

The Draft Scout - Matt Miller (2/14)

24. Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia

The Cowboys could go a few directions in Round 1, but the need for a consistent linebacker is huge in my opinion and according to sources I've spoken to. Nakobe Dean won't test exceptionally well and he's undersized, but he's also a great football player. That can work in Dallas and in Dan Quinn's defense.

NFL.com - Chad Reuter (2/14)

24. Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State

With uncertainty about Amari Cooper's future and the pending free agency of Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson, the Cowboys could be in need of help for CeeDee Lamb on the outside. Wilson's body control and footwork in the open field will certainly intrigue owner Jerry Jones.

PFF - Mike Renner (2/14)

24. Tyler Linderbaum, IOL, Iowa

Linderbaum may slide because of his size at 290 pounds, but he shouldn't. The Cowboys would happily reinvest in their offensive line after things fell apart down the stretch last year. Linderbaum would bring Travis Frederick levels of assuredness to the position.
