Cowboys: 2020 Mock Draft Watch 1.0

Cowboys: 2020 Mock Draft Watch 1.0

Here’s a look at who NFL draft analysts are predicting the Dallas Cowboys will select in this year’s draft. The Cowboys currently have the 17th pick in the 2020 NFL draft.

Daniel Jeremiah, NFL.com – Xavier McKinney, S

“McKinney is the best safety in the draft, and he addresses a glaring need for the Cowboys.”

Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports – Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE

School: Penn State | Year: Junior

“The Cowboys have needs at wide receiver, tight end and in the secondary, but Demarcus Lawrence can’t do it by himself along the defensive line. Robert Quinn and Michael Bennett will have their contracts expire in March and Gross-Matos is an edge-setting pass rusher who logged nine sacks this season. He’s still learning the position, which means he will only get better.”

Walter Football – Xavier McKinney, S

“The Cowboys tried to land Earl Thomas last offseason, but they haven’t been able to upgrade their hole at safety. Perhaps they’ll do that with this pick. Xavier McKinney was the best safety on Alabama’s roster last year, despite the presence of Deionte Thompson.”

Kevin Hanson, SI.com – Grant Delpit, S

School: LSU | Year: Junior

“The Dallas defense ranked in the top 10 in yards per pass attempt allowed, but was tied with the Lions and Cardinals for the league low in passes intercepted (seven). Inconsistent tackling was an issue at times for Delpit, but he’s a rangy playmaker with eight interceptions and 24 passes defended in his three seasons in Baton Rouge.”

Vinnue Iyer, Sporting News – Grant Delpit, S

“The Cowboys need an upgrade at free safety to get better at covering backs and tight ends. Delpit flies around the field, stopping the run like an extra linebacker and making big plays on the ball in downfield coverage. He plays like the Chargers’ Derwin James with tremendous hybrid size (6-3, 203 pounds) for the position.”

Matt Miller, Bleacher Report – Javon Kinlaw, DL

School: South Carolina | Year: Senior

“A 6’6”, 310-pounder who I’ve compared to Arik Armstead, Kinlaw has dominated in the SEC for two seasons while showing a positional versatility (he would be great in a 3-4) and toughness that will have coaches falling in love with his game.”

Tyler Roman, NBC Sports – Raekwon Davis, DL, Alabama

“At 6-foot-7, Davis is an absolute tear to block. His bread and butter is stopping the run, but he can still get after the pass evident by his 8.5 sack sophomore season.”
