Matt Mosely makes his prediction for Dallas at #27


Mosely claims to have successfully predicted that last 7 Dallas first picks (not sure how that's possibly with all the trade downs last year) by giving three options.  Yesterday on the Galloway show on local ESPN radio he gave his three choices for this year.

 

FS Nate Allen, South Florida

OT Bruce Campbell, Maryland

CB Devin McCourty, Rutgers

 

I guess I cant say I'm surprised at these options, although I dont think I've seen McCourty to Dallas in too many mocks.  Seems to me Allen could be had ten picks later, if he was our top target.  I see him go to Dallas in some mocks, but if he gets by us, no one threatens to take him until Cleveland (#38) or Seattle (#40) at the earliest.  If we take him at 27, it will be a wasted pick.  We could easily trade back to one of those slots and acquire an additional pick and still get our man.  I would be disappoined with Allen at 27.  But not at 38th, and getting an extra 3rd.

I can see McCourty in the first round.  Matter of fact, in my mock, I have him going 30th to Minnesota.  Doesnt seem like much of a reach as he is clearly the #3 CB in this draft.  But is a 4th CB our top need?  I could see taking Haden if he falls (not likely) or maybe even Wilson.  Most everything I read about McCourty says he projects to a solid nickle corner.  If I'm taking a corner in the first, he needs to project to a starter.

Of this group the guy I like is Bruce Campbell.  Not the top ranked OT prospect, but with all the intangibles (many say one of the most athletic OL to come out in the last decade) I would love to give Hudson Houck the chance to work with this kid and see if he can be a franchise Left Tackle.  He's a physical freak.  Does he have a high bust potential?  Maybe.  I'd call it medium.  Does he have the potential to be a star LT?  Absolutely.
