What is the biggest draft need for the Cowboys?
Every Coboys fan has an opinion on that, even if there is no clear answer to that question. Unless of course you ask the Cowboys themselves what they think the biggest need is. Here's Stephen Jones replying to a fan question recently.
You always want to take the best player on your board. But if I were guessing right now, it would probably be another defensive lineman. We want to continue to put resources into our defensive line so we can be dominant in that area. But certaily we'll look into everything as the year closes.
In today’s mock draft round-up, we look at 11 of the latest mocks published in the first four days of 2018, including mocks from CBSSports, USA Today, SB Nation and many others.
The Cowboys’ insistence on following their board and drafting the best player available is nice and all, but that player had better be a defensive lineman - at least not the majority of draft analysts assembled below, as 6 of the 11 mocks in our mock draft tracker have the Cowboys picking defensive lineman.
And to my great personal satisfaction (not that that's relevant in any way), DE Marcus Davenport shows up in a Cowboys mock draft for the first time. Hopefully that carries over into the real draft.
We’ll see how things develop over the next few months, and perhaps the Senior Bowl, Combine, and pre-draft visits will provide a little more clarity on the Cowboys’ intentions prior to the draft.
For now, all the latest mock draft goodness is summarized below.
