    Sitting here at home bored so I decided to post an early mock draft. This mock takes into account that Dallas makes the playoffs so I didn't put people that would be out of Dallas's reach.

    1st round Kelcy Quarles DT South Carolina 6-4 298
    I really like this guy. He already has 7 sacks and is a much better prospect than the overrated Jernigan and Hageman. I understand he plays on the same line as Clowney, but Clowney is having a bad year and only has 2 sacks. I debated putting him on this mock because if teams are smart they will make him the 2nd tackle in this upcoming draft. I am really hoping Hagerman and Jernigan push him down and he reaches Dallas, but I think his production is greater than the other guys' hype. Dallas will need a replacement for Hatcher and I think this guy will get it done.

    2nd round Ray Drew DE Georgia 6-5 276
    He is having a very solid year and has racked up 6 sacks. I think he should still be there in the 2nd round and has very good size for DE. He would most likely play the strong side and allow Dallas to shift Selvie to the weakside if Dallas cuts Ware. I know those words are considered blasphemy but Dallas will have to start getting rid of big contracts next year to free up space for Dez and Tyrone. This guy is a very similar player to Crawford but with more college production. Even if Dallas keeps Ware, he cannot be counted on for a full 16 games and this guy would provide a solid backup plan in case of injury

    3rd round Tre Jackson G Florida State 6-4 327
    I know mocks have been predicted Anthony Steen or David Yankey to Dallas but I much prefer Jackson who has a little more girth. He is a very good run blocker and has good agility for a man his size. He would be able to wrestle the job away from Macky B and do a much better job of anchoring. I think he will be there in the 3rd round even though he is a quality lineman because Gabe Jackson, Cyril Richardson, and La'Leal Collins should all go before him. Make no mistake though, this guy is the real deal.

    4th round Antone Exum CB/FS Virginia 6-1 224
    He probably won't be 100 till next year after tearing his ACL. He just started playing again. He has experience at both safety and CB which would be a big plus with the way the league is evolving. Drafting him would provide insurance in case Matt Johnson gets hurt again. This guy is very good in coverage and had five interceptions last year. He would have gone much higher if not for his injury.

    5th round Spencer Long G Nebraska 6-4 315
    This is a very good player who will drop because he tore his ACL. Would have been at least a 4th round pick if not for his injury. I know Dallas just drafted Jackson according to my Mock but this guy is much better than Bernadeau and would serve as a good swing guard if either Leary or Jackson were to get hurt. Dallas needs at least two interior players in this draft and this guy will be a steal for some lucky team, hopefully it is us.

    6th round and 7th round

    Dallas should blow both picks on the best available linebackers. Every year players drop, I just don't know who will be there when they pick. Under my mock though Dallas would have gotten good depth on the Dline and Oline and would have solved their biggest needs. Exum will be a good player next year once he can shake off the injury and will excel in this next pass happy league.

    Great draft, not big on injured exum but the other 4 I have used in previous versions of my own mock draft & I think you're right about Kelcy he is kind of under the radar right now & I am beginning to think he will slip into the 1st round.

    I am thinking more along the lines of making a year long business decision.

    Nice job. For one of those 7th Rounders, I would jump on Drew's teammate, NG Garrison Smith if he's still there. Has a lot of the GOOD Jay Ratliff in him. He and Quarles together could be potent. Their both in that 6'3"-6'4", 300lb. range with excellent quickness. He has 6 sacks from the NG spot in a 3-4 - that is pretty impressive.

    Good find, you must be a Georgia fan to have the info on that guy, he's buried deep I couldn't even find a scouting report on him. With stats like he's had the past two years do you have any idea why he is not on anyone's radar & ranked so low? He seems to have nice measurables & good stats the past few years.

    11/04/13 - WEEK 10 SEC DEFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE WEEK: Garrison Smith, NG, Georgia..Smith recorded a career-high nine tackles, including 2.5 sacks for loss of 12 yards, during Georgia’s 23-20 win over Florida...After coming into the season with 1.5 sacks this year and only a single sack during the first three years of his career, Smith is third on the team with four sacks and third with a total of 44 tackles this season...He led a defense that surrendered only a pair of touchdowns (which had drives of 14 and 50 yards) and a field goal. - SEC football

    08/21/13 - TOP GEORGIA PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 5. DE Garrison Smith (6-3, 297, 5.02)...Lining up as a five-technique DE in the Bulldogs' 3-4 scheme, Smith emerged as one of Georgia's more productive defenders in 2012, leading the defensive line with 57 tackles, including two for loss despite starting just nine games.

    His efforts were overshadowed, literally and figuratively, by fellow defensive linemen John Jenkins (6-4, 346) and Kwame Geathers (6-6, 342), who often absorbed the double-teams a season ago, giving Smith opportunities to make tackles. The athletic and intelligent defender took advantage, showing the ability to locate the football and slide off blocks efficiently to rack up stops near the line of scrimmage. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

    That guy has the production of a 4th rounder and should go no later than that round. At some point teams need to start looking at production and not "potential" other wise people like Shariff Floyd will continue to get over drafted. I wouldn't mind taking Smith in the 4th round but Dallas needs a FS in the worst kind of way. I know internet draft websites have Smith as a 7th rounder, but his hustle and production will warrant a 4th round pick.

    Like I said - if he falls. But, I already know the REAL DEAL sites will be updated in the next month and Smith WILL be around a 4th-5th rounder. But, an interior of him and Quarles could be solid for years. Having said that, if Stephon Tuitt declares, he's my 1st choice for the 3-Tech. He has the size of Hageman, but with the production numbers you want to see from a 1st Rounder. I became more impressed when he took over for Nix at NT and excelled. The kid can ball. As much as I like Donald, he is just so small. If he's even 5'11", I'll be shocked.

    This team needs 2 interior guys that do it all - like Suh and Fairley.

    I like Quarles just a little more than Tuitt, but I really like Tuitt. If Quarles is gone before Dallas can take him in the 1st, I would definitely target Tuitt if he was still there. After thinking about it for awhile I think taking Garrison Smith in the 4th would be a very good pickup. The dude plays with a nonstop motor and gets a good push in the middle. I say just take the guy in the 4th and take a DT in 1st as well. The FS class looks weak this year anyway which is the only reason I took Exum in the 4th. And your absolutely right, Dallas needs two good DTs, and another DE as well.
