It’s draft day! The Cowboys spent their first-round pick on WR Amari Cooper, but still hold six selections in the NFL draft. Here’s a last-minute seven-round Cowboys mock draft.

Round 2 #58: Dallas Cowboys – Taylor Rapp, SS, Washington

The Cowboys should be thrilled if Taylor Rapp is still available when they get on the clock on Friday. Rapp is a top-notch box safety, that’s only available this late due to the 40-yard dash time he ran at his pro day, and a hip flexor that is giving some teams some pause, according to Dane Brugler of The Athletic. Rapp is a consistent tackler, has great sideline-to-sideline range when playing the run in the box, and showed above average cover ability lined up in the slot, or covering running backs out of the backfield.

Round 3 #90: Dallas Cowboys – Renell Wren, DT, Arizona State

The two positions on the Cowboys roster that need the most upgraded talent is safety and defensive tackle. After using free agency and trades to construct a very talented, and deep roster, Dallas is now set up in a position to take the best player available (with need) in each round. Renell Wren is far from a finished product, but has exceptional traits to be a versatile interior defensive lineman for the Cowboys. Listed at 6’5”, 318lbs, Wren has exceptional size and length, and moves very well for a big man. With Maliek Collins entering the final year of his rookie deal, Renell Wren can be a contributor in 2019, but potentially take over as a starter in 2020.

Round 4 #128: Dallas Cowboys – Justice Hill, RB, Oklahoma State

One position the Cowboys need to make sure they leave with when the draft is all said and done is running back. Oklahoma State’s Justice Hill is the perfect complement back to Ezekiel Elliott. Hill is a 4.40 athlete, with plenty of burst, explosiveness, and long speed to be a excellent change of pace back for the Cowboys. Along with his lower body twitch, Hill has above average vision, and knows how to get skinny when hitting running lanes. Hill showcased the ability to be a quality receiving option for the Oklahoma State Cowboys, and would do the same for the Dallas Cowboys.

Round 4 #136: Dallas Cowboys – Stanley Morgan Jr., WR, Nebraska

Though the Cowboys are pretty heavy at receiver as it stands right now, after this year that all changes. The Cowboys haven’t shown much interest in Stanley Morgan Jr., but he brings an intriguing skill-set to the table for the Cowboys receiving corps. Morgan Jr. can lineup both outside and in the slot and has exceptional ball skills and excels at the catch point using his size, physicality, and sticky hands to haul in almost anything thrown his way. Morgan Jr. isn’t an exceptional athlete, but creates separation using his nuanced route-running ability, and fluid hips to get in and out of breaks at a high-speed.

Round 5 #165: Dallas Cowboys – Michael Dogbe, DT, Temple

We keep hearing about the Cowboys looking to draft the next Tyrone Crawford. A guy that can play both defensive end and defensive tackle, without being a liability at either spot. Michael Dogbe is the perfect fit for that role in the Cowboys defense. Listed at 6’3”, 280lbs, Dogbe has above average length and seemed to play his best when playing inside, but there’s plenty of reps of Dogbe rushing off the edge and finding success. In the fifth round, you’re looking for players that can be quality role players on your football team, Michael Dogbe is that, and more.

Round 7 #241: Dallas Cowboys – Derrek Thomas, CB, Baylor

Derrek Thomas has been tied to the Cowboys a lot over the last few weeks. Needing to add some depth to the cornerback room, Thomas would add the ideal physical traits for Kris Richard to mold into a CB4/CB5. Thomas is a plus-6’3” corner with 33 3/4” arms at the position. Given the prototype that Richard looks for in his defensive backs, Derrek Thomas would be an excellent addition late on day three as a developmental cornerback.
