    Our good friends and SBNation colleagues over at Mocking The Draft released their latest six-round mock draft yesterday. The thing I really like about these extended mock drafts is that they don't exist in a vacuum like single-team mocks do, where you can just pick and choose the prospects for your team irrespective of where they are slotted and what other teams would do.

    Instead, because these lengthy mocks have every team making a pick, they limit the number of available candidates for your team. What I like to do when I browse through these mocks is to look at which player I would have chosen for the Cowboys instead of the player proposed in the original mock.

    I don't see how he has LaMichael James lasting until the 5th.

    Nonsense like this is why I reverted to computer mock drafts as far back as 2001.

    It's hard otherwise to eliminate greed, stupidity, and daft falls from the mock.

    "Of course no one will draft Quinton Couples until the 3rd round.."

    14. David Decastro BPA - Trent Richardson

    45. Dontari Poe BPA - Jerel Worthy

    83. Jared Crick BPA - Jared Crick or Brandon Weeden

    113. Sean Spence BPA - Kendall Reyes or LaMichael James

    144. Trumaine Johnson BPA - LaMichael James or Mike Martin

    175. Jonathan Massaquoi BPA - Kheeston Randall or DaJohn Harris

    I'm not trying to diss this 6 round mock or anything, but if the Cowboys got this draft, we would win the Super Bowl within 3 years. You have 5 guys on defense that could come in immediately and make an impact, as well as replacements across the board that would be significant upgrades.

    I do not see anything like this happening, there are just some glaring differences between that mock draft and the way I have my board set up. Based on this, all 6 of our picks would be in the Top 100 on my board. A lot of these players have been graded higher than what I drafted them, but according to that mock draft, that is what would be available.

    Can't wait for next Monday....
