Since that first round of mock drafts, something significant has happened: The Cowboys have brought in their official pre-draft visitors, have had their Dallas Day where they worked out local prospects, and continue to work out draft prospects - all of which we've faithfully chronicled in our often copied but never credited Pre-Draft Visit Tracker.
Bryan Broaddus for example submitted a mock that features five players who were brought in for a pre-draft visit, and one the Cowboys worked out subsequently. Not every writer followed the same approach, but all have at least two prospects that are on the Cowboys' pre-draft visitor list.
The five mocks from the DC.com writers are listed below, and for your reading convenience, the official pre-draft visitors are marked in green, while players that attended Dallas Day or had private workouts are marked in yellow.

In addition to the five mock drafts above, each writer also provides an analysis of his own mock draft, which is well worth reading in the original article.
When we reviewed the DC.com mocks two weeks ago, we offered a poll at the end that allowed BTB users to vote on which mocks they liked the most. We collected 2,346 votes in total, and Rob Phillips won the vote for his mock draft, which garnered 21% of the total vote. It doesn't look like he'll be able to repeat with the mock he offered here, but that's for you to decide: Tell us in the poll and in the comments which mock you like the most.
