Mock Draft Roundup 4.0: Analysts decide between Surtain, Horn for Dallas

Mock Draft Roundup 4.0: Analysts decide between Surtain, Horn for Dallas

Chris Trapasso, CBS.com – Patrick Surtain II (15th pick)

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“The Cowboys stil get their cornerback after trading down. Ideal scenario for them.”

James Fragoza, Pro Football Network – Patrick Surtain II

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“The Cowboys’ offense is elite as long Dak Prescott is healthy. Their most pressing needs are on the defensive side of the ball, specifically at cornerback. Trevon Diggs showed flashes last season and Jourdan Lewis has his moments, but they are the two best Cbs on Dallas’ roster. Surtain is CB1 in the class and will start on Day 1.

Charley Casserly, NFL.com – Patrick Surtain II

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“Surtain will team with Trevon Diggs to give Dallas two good, young cornerbacks.”

Jared Dubin, CBS.com – Jaycee Horn (15th pick)

School: South Carolina | Year: Junior

“Dallas moves down five spots, picks up an extra selection, and still gets one of the top corners in the class. Horn is a physical cornerback with long arms and great athleticism, making him a good fit across from Trevon Diggs in new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn’s defense.”

Joe Giglio, NJ.com – Patrick Surtain II

Vinnie Iyer, SportingNews.com – Patrick Surtain II

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“The Cowboys should be focused on two main courses above all else: cornerback and offensive tackle, with a strong side of luxury tight end. At tackle, they could go after Northwestern’s Rashawn Slater or Oregon’s Penei Sewell if either is available, more so the latter. But corner is in the wheelhouse and the decision will be between Surtain and Virginia Tech’s Caleb Farley. Surtain is a very safe pick and fills a big need. There’s no question his size, skill set and pedigree give him shutdown potential as an outside coverage man.”

Jason Ramirez, Inside The Star – Patrick Surtain II

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“Surtain is a perfect fit for Dallas, a press corner and reliable tackler that used to play across from last year’s 2nd round pick and impressive-looking Trevon Diggs at Alabama. Surtain has all the ideal traits you want out of a CB including impressive ball skills, fills the Cowboys’ biggest need at a perfect value at #10.”

Matthew Lenix, Inside The Star – Jaycee Horn

School: South Carolina | Year: Junior

“Horn excelled not only in man coverage on the outside but he also slid inside to the slot. At 6’0 and 205 pounds, he used his size and physicality to play against bigger receivers while also having the ability the play against smaller guys with speed. He attacks at the catch point, has great eye discipline, and reads routes extremely well. His aggressive playing style is very disruptive and can rattle receivers during their routes. Horn is a Day 1 starter for the Cowboys if drafted and would make quite the duo at cornerback with Trevon Diggs.”

Todd McShay, ESPN.com – Patrick Surtain II

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“Dallas gets first pick of the defensive pool, and I’m reuniting Surtain with his former Alabama teammate Trevon Diggs in this CB room. Surtain is a true shutdown corner.”

Nate Davis, USA Today – Kyle Pitts (4th overall)

School: Florida | Year: Junior

“For starters, yes, it would be an expensive move for Jones – maybe even costing him next year’s first-rounder. But one could forgive his purported infatuation. Some draft evaluators and scouts have deemed Pitts the greatest tight end prospect they’ve ever studied. As badly as Dallas needs defensive upgrades, adding a 6-6, 246-pounder who can cover 40 yards in fewer than 4.5 seconds might add an insane offensive dimension not even seen for a franchise that’s benefited from tight end stars like Jason Witten and Jay Novacek over the years.”
