"Everybody else is doing it so why can't we?" It's once again mock draft time and I figured I'd get my "fair share of abuse". I'll be doing a few different versions: 1) The "Perfect Storm", where the draft falls the Cowboys' way with the players they need right where they need them 2) The "Carnac the Magnificent" version where I'll provide predictions sure to go wrong 3) The "If I had a Billion Dollars" version where I'll play the part of Jerry Jones and do whatever I want Here's the "Perfect Storm" version: Dallas Cowboys 2010 Mock Draft Round 1 : Mike Iupati - OL - Idaho - 6’5” 325 lbs. A player the Cowboys obviously covet, I feel they see Iupati as their next Larry Allen. A terrific athlete with tremendous strength who should excel in what Dallas asks of its’ linemen. A year of NFL coaching and left guard should be solidified for years. Round 2: Nate Allen/ - FS – South Florida – 6’1” 205 lbs. Despite its’ high-ranking, the Cowboys defense needs more playmakers in the secondary. Ken Hamlin has been an average player since signing his big contract and the team would certainly prefer an upgrade. Allen would provide that. A great athlete with speed, change-of-direction, ball skills and a good work ethic. Round 3: Jared Veldheer – OT- Hillsdale – 6’8” 321 lbs. I see Veldheer as this year’s version of Sebastian Vollmer. He showed he could play with the big boys during Texas vs. the nation all-star week. A solid developmental prospect, he could develop into a left or right tackle of the future. Other than Doug Free, the Cowboys have too many question marks at tackle and this pick would give them another option and a potential future starter. Round 4: Akwasi Owusu-Ansah – CB – Indiana (PA) – 6’0” 200 lbs. A terrific athlete with great size, good burst, and closing speed, he’s a developmental cornerback who can be brought along slowly and used first as a returner/special teams player. Round 6: Eric Olsen – OC – Notre Dame – 6’4” 305 lbs. He brings much needed versatility to the offensive line and sends perennial disappointment Cory Procter packing once and for all. Smart, tough and durable, Olsen has improved throughout his collegiate career and should develop into a fine replacement for starter Andre Gurode. Round 7: John Conner – FB - Kentucky - 5’11” 240 lbs. A throwback fullback who thrives in the lead-blocking role, “The Terminator” will add the physicality to the running game that the Cowboys have lacked since the days of Moose Johnston, while also contributing to special teams.
