If you thought we were done with mock drafts here on BTB, boy were you ever wrong. The mock drafters across the country are pumping out mock drafts like there was no tomorrow - or rather, like there was no yesterday.

In any case, here’s a short summary of the second-round mock drafts that have popped up today. Our own David Howman put up a comprehensive look at the remaining available prospects earlier today, but we’ll take a stroll through Mock Draft Land one more time, reviewing the very latest mock draft goodness.

51. Dallas CowboysTrevon Diggs, CB, Alabama

If the first round played out a certain way, the Cowboys might have drafted Diggs at No. 17 overall. Instead, they land an offensive playmaker in CeeDee Lamb and are able to grab the athletic cover man in the second round.

82. Dallas Cowboys – Terrell Burgess, FS, Utah

51. Dallas Cowboys - Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama

The Cowboys could've select a cornerback as early as Round 1, given how big the need is. Trevon Diggs, younger brother of Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs, began as a receiver at Alabama, but was tremendous last season at cornerback before suffering a foot injury.

82. Dallas Cowboys – Logan Wilson, LB, Wyoming

The Cowboys need a linebacker with Sean Lee nearing the end of his career.

51. Dallas Cowboys - Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE, Penn State

The Cowboys' linebacking future is bright with Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch, but they can target someone as the new complementary pass-rusher for DeMarcus Lawrence in the wake of losing Robert Quinn in free agency. Gross-Matos (6-5, 266 pounds) is a well-built, explosive and versatile defender who is made to be disruptive in Mike Nolan's defense with his size and ability to engulf.

82. Dallas Cowboys - Jonah Jackson, G, Ohio State

The Cowboys need interior offensive line help after the retirement of Travis Frederick, and Jackson (6-3, 306 pounds) is capable of playing center. He is a distinctive prospect because he is a pure pass-protecting interior blocker. He has the frame and strength to develop in the running game.

51. Dallas Cowboys - Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama

The Cowboys can't pass on the value here with McKinney, a super-versatile safety prospect, at No. 51.

82. Dallas Cowboys - Michael Ojemudia, CB, Iowa

The Cowboys get length, instincts, and athleticism with Ojemudia here.

51. Dallas Cowboys - Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama

Diggs has an elite combination of size and length for the position that suits him well at the line of scrimmage and when challenging at the catch point. The younger brother of Bills receiver Stefon Diggs, Trevon also played wide receiver early in his Alabama career and has outstanding ball skills.

82. Dallas Cowboys - Justin Madubuike, IDL, Texas A&M

Anthony Teash, PFF

51. Dallas Cowboys - Troy Pride Jr., CB, Notre Dame

Getting CeeDee Lamb at the 17th overall pick was a huge steal for Dallas, and getting Troy Pride Jr. on Day 2 would make their draft even better. Pride has the kind of elite speed that prevents any open downfield throw. In his career, Pride saw 38 deep targets of 20-plus yards and he allowed only six catches. He’s a bit of a project due to his inability to play the catch point, but his athleticism and man-to-man ability are worth investing in.

51. Dallas Cowboys - Justin Madubuike, DL, Texas A&M

The Dallas Cowboys reaped the reward of CeeDee Lamb’s fall out of the top fifteen, and made the Oklahoma selection their pick at seventeen overall. Now they take advantage of another slide, and grab Justin Madubuike to the interior of their defensive line. Madubuike can be a quick penetrator up front, and on film he shows the ability to take over games. He can be a force as a pass rusher, with good burst and a nearly-full compliment of pass rushing moves. Against the run he shows violent power at the point of attack, with the ability to long-arm trap blockers and fight the half man, enabling him to make some plays behind the line of scrimmage.

82. Dallas Cowboys - Terrell Burgess, S, Utah

51. Dallas Cowboys - Grant Delpit, LSU safety

If Delpit falls this far, Jerry Jones might try to get in the pick before the Bears make their selection. Delpit is a true free safety with his coverage ability (a 71.5 grade from PFF, which greatly outweighed any other area), but he doesn't have the speed that translates for that position (sometimes losing tight ends). If he falls that far, that is why.

82. Dallas Cowboys - A.J. Green, CB, Oklahoma State
