    1) Kony Ealy - DE
    Great candidate for the SDE position to compete with Ty Crawford & also will allow Selvie to slide over to WDE and let Ware become more of a situational rusher considering he doesn't look like he can handle full time duty any further.

    2) Loucheiz Purifoy - DB
    This dude is a baller and plays well in zone & man coverage. He will challenge Mo and provide depth on the outside. Not to mention he has done well at KR & WR as well. Dude is a weapon.

    3) (Scandrick trade) Kelcy Quarles - DT
    Quarles is the sack leader at the DT position in the SEC, that's quite an accomplishment not to mention at 6'3" & 295lbs with predicted 4.8 speed he is the ideal 3-tech for Rod Marinelli's rush men.

    3) Tre Jackson - OG
    There are a lot of very good guard prospects in this draft but they all appear to come from a power blocking scheme which of course the could adjust but why when we could get a guard in a later round that you already know performs well in the zone blocking scheme?

    4) Andre Williams - RB
    (I believe one way or another we end up with an extra pick this year, so this is the round I'm guessing it at)
    Dre Williams is a thumper, kind of like a Alfred Morris type, I think that is what they were hoping for with Phillip Tanner and since that failed I'd have to guess they will look for a replacement with the same style.

    5) Dee Ford - OLB
    An undersized defensive end, or a jumbo outside linebacker, Ford has a tremendous amount of natural athleticism. He is quick off the ball and plays every down full speed. His effort gets him to a lot of backside tackles, and he's a special teams demon as well. Adept at swatting down passes and playing the passing lanes as well. From what I watched on him I'd definitely take chance in the later rounds, at worst he's competition for Hands Holloman.

    6) (Comp Pick) JC Copeland - FB
    This may be a passing league but we still need some type of run game. Our 12 personnel package is a joke so we need a fullback & at 280lbs this dude is like an extra oline man (which is also a plus with our oline)

    7) Spencer Long - OG
    I like long and unfortunately for him he got injured, a guy I once mocked as our 3rd round pick we can now get in the 7th. Could be a replacement for Leary as early as the 2015 season if he doesn't get up to par by then.

    7) Ben Malena - RB
    Same deal as the Williams pick, they thought they had a quick shifty back with Dunbar, that's not working. So Malena will be Dunbar 2.0, let's hope we hit on this one.

    7) L'Damien Washington- WR
    Let's face it Miles Austin's career in Dallas is over. That leaves us needing another taller wideout with atleast some speed. So here's Washington, it's the 7th round just hope for the best.

    Trade = Scandrick for 3rd
    I know what you're thinking, why trade Scandrick? He's doing way better than Mo. Yes I get it & that's exactly why we are trading him, he has a hefty little contract & he has improved his market value dramatically with his performance this year. Plus this draft is loaded with CB talent.

    I'd love to have added more DT's or DE's but I'm just not willing to believe JJ will let that happen.

    1) If this draft is loaded with CB talent, then why would anyone give up a third for Scandrick?

    2) No one is giving you that. Even if the draft wasn't "loaded".

    3) He doesn't have a "hefty little contract".

    4) Keep him.

    5) keep your negative opinions to yourself. It's my prediction & you can't disprove it so run along.... Unless you're GM, are you? Jerry is that you?

    6) His negative opinions of your opinion is better than your negative opinion of his negative opinion and much more valid so he can stay and you can move along...unless you're a GM, are you? Jerry is that you?

    This defense historically needs the star DE to be the WDE. I'm not certain I want to spend a first on an SDE. Also, Selvie is not an ideal candidate for WDE.

    2) Loucheiz Purifoy - DB
    This dude is a baller and plays well in zone & man coverage. He will challenge Mo and provide depth on the outside. Not to mention he has done well at KR & WR as well. Dude is a weapon.
    I do like that he has a couple of inches on Scandrick; however, IMO, this team needs some young veteran leadership and stability. If Purifoy is the BPA, then draft him, but it's not time to part with Scandrick.

    3) (Scandrick trade) Kelcy Quarles - DT
    Quarles is the sack leader at the DT position in the SEC, that's quite an accomplishment not to mention at 6'3" & 295lbs with predicted 4.8 speed he is the ideal 3-tech for Rod Marinelli's rush men.
    I don't know if he will be available in the 3rd round. He looks like a good player and good scheme fit.

    3) Tre Jackson - OG
    There are a lot of very good guard prospects in this draft but they all appear to come from a power blocking scheme which of course the could adjust but why when we could get a guard in a later round that you already know performs well in the zone blocking scheme?
    This is the type of player that I like in the mid/late rounds. He has good size (6-4, 330) and athleticism but needs a lot of work on fundamentals. I prefer this type over a guy with good fundamentals due to Pro quality coaching like Anthony Steen but a lower upside (i.e. smaller and less athletic). I would like Jackson even better in the 4th round.

    4) Andre Williams - RB
    (I believe one way or another we end up with an extra pick this year, so this is the round I'm guessing it at)
    Dre Williams is a thumper, kind of like a Alfred Morris type, I think that is what they were hoping for with Phillip Tanner and since that failed I'd have to guess they will look for a replacement with the same style.
    I like the pick; I don't know if the Cowboys will take a RB that is has not demonstrated abilities as a receiver.

    He is definitely a load and can run well for his size.


    5) Dee Ford - OLB
    An undersized defensive end, or a jumbo outside linebacker, Ford has a tremendous amount of natural athleticism. He is quick off the ball and plays every down full speed. His effort gets him to a lot of backside tackles, and he's a special teams demon as well. Adept at swatting down passes and playing the passing lanes as well. From what I watched on him I'd definitely take chance in the later rounds, at worst he's competition for Hands Holloman.
    I like the player but I don't see any possibility of him playing LB in the 4-3. He would have to player Weak-Side DE in 4-3. His best fit might be as a 3-4 OLB and the 3-4 team are likely to have him rated higher than where the Cowboys rate him.

    6) (Comp Pick) JC Copeland - FB
    This may be a passing league but we still need some type of run game. Our 12 personnel package is a joke so we need a fullback & at 280lbs this dude is like an extra oline man (which is also a plus with our oline)
    If the Cowboys take a FB, I believe it will be one of the taller types with receiving ability that can perform some of the duties that TE James Hanna is currently doing.

    I would have said replace Copeland with Trey Millard, but due to the injury Millard will likely be a UDFA.

    7) Spencer Long - OG
    I like long and unfortunately for him he got injured, a guy I once mocked as our 3rd round pick we can now get in the 7th. Could be a replacement for Leary as early as the 2015 season if he doesn't get up to par by then.
    Good value is available this late.

    7) Ben Malena - RB
    Same deal as the Williams pick, they thought they had a quick shifty back with Dunbar, that's not working. So Malena will be Dunbar 2.0, let's hope we hit on this one.
    Sure, anything is ok in the 7th; although I would not say that Dunbar is not working. They have barely given him any touches.

    7) L'Damien Washington- WR
    Let's face it Miles Austin's career in Dallas is over. That leaves us needing another taller wideout with atleast some speed. So here's Washington, it's the 7th round just hope for the best.
    One of the faster of the bigger receivers (6-4, 205, project 4.37 forty).

    Trade = Scandrick for 3rd
    I know what you're thinking, why trade Scandrick? He's doing way better than Mo. Yes I get it & that's exactly why we are trading him, he has a hefty little contract & he has improved his market value dramatically with his performance this year. Plus this draft is loaded with CB talent.
    This does not make sense to me. Scandrick has a reasonable contract, especially considering that he looks like a quality starting CB this year. His 3.5M salary for 2014 looks like a bargain.

    I'd love to have added more DT's or DE's but I'm just not willing to believe JJ will let that happen.

    More...

    Overall, some good picks; however, I think you just really like Purifoy and thought up the Scandrick trade to justify it and get extra picks for the mock. It's always fun to have as many picks as possible in a mock and nobody really cares about existing players on the roster when creating mocks.

    Take another DT and change Ford to a DE and it will look much better.

    You mentioned something about an extra pick in the 4th selection; however, you show the comp pick in the 6th. It's doubtful that Dallas receives any comp picks. They are based on the contracts signed by outgoing and incoming free agents lost/gained before the 2013 season (i.e. Jenkins/Felix out, Durant/Allen in).
