In our inaugural mock draft database of the season, we take a peek at 32 different mock drafts by some of the better-known draftniks on the interwebs to see whether we can get a better feeling for the lay of the land in the middle of the first round.

As it currently stands, 29 of the 32 mocks are projecting the Cowboys to take a defensive player. If you were locked in on a wide receiver or perhaps even a tight end, you may have to start rethinking your position.

The table below lists the 32 mocks by their publication date and shows which player is mocked to the Cowboys.

The NFL Combine is about to kick off, so a lot can happen over the next week that could impact who the Cowboys will pick in the 2020 NFL draft, and we’ll get a new batch of mocks after the dust from the Combine settles. For now though, the mock draft community has seemingly locked in on a safety as the number one priority for the Cowboys.

Going by the results of this iteration of our mock draft database, a quintet of players seems to be hogging the mock draft vote of the assembled draftniks above: Xavier McKinney by a wide margin, followed by Grant Delpit and Trevon Diggs, with only outsider chances for A.J. Epenesa and Henry Ruggs

Which one of the five would be your choice right now?
