With the 2018 NFL draft coming soon, DallasCowboys.com opened their mock draft season with a vengeance on Friday. The mothership’s four writers unveiled their first mock drafts simultaneously in a veritable mock draft bonanza.

The interesting thing about these mocks is that for one thing, they are full seven-round mocks. The other thing that makes these mocks noteworthy is that they are not put together by some national writers who often show a marginal understanding of the Dallas Cowboys at best. The DallasCowboys.com staff self-depreciatingly call this their two-cent drafts, but the writers are about as close to the team as it gets, and are much more in tune with the general fan consensus than any national writer can be - at least we hope so. As a result, their mocks should be much better than many of the mocks we regularly review here.

Having said that, the same caveats apply to these mock drafts as they do to any other mock draft: as a predictor of what will actually happen in the draft, they are not very accurate. Don’t take this as a knock on the DC.com guys, this is par for the course for mock drafts.

In addition to the four mock drafts, each writer also provides an analysis of his own mock draft, which you can read up on in the original article. But what that original article fails to do is have its readers vote on which mock they like the best. And that’s where we come in and provide a free, no-strings attached service for our friends from the mothership: We’ve listed the four mock drafts below, and attached a poll at the end of the post in which you can vote on the mock draft you like the most (or hate the least).
