Mock Draft Roundup 5.0: Analysts turn in their final cards for Dallas

Mock Draft Roundup 5.0: Analysts turn in their final cards for Dallas

Daniel Jeremiah, NFL.com – Jaycee Horn, CB

School: South Carolina | Year: Junior

“Everyone around the league seems to believe the Cowboys are locked in on the draft’s top two corners. There’s a dropoff at the position after Surtain and Horn, so Dallas strikes to land the best CB remaining. Horn’s a plug-and-play guy opposite Trevon Diggs.”

Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz, USA Today – Patrick Surtain II, CB

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“The two sides have been linked since the draft order was first set, and it’s hard to shake the sensibility of this pairing. While Surtain might not be the interception machine the Cowboys have lacked for some time, the son of former Pro Bowl cornerback Patrick Surtain has a master’s level understanding of technique and coverage nuances in addition to a well-rounded physical profile.”

Peter Schrager, NFL.com – Jaycee Horn, CB

School: South Carolina | Year: Junior

“With Surtain off the board, the Cowboys don’t have to decide between the draft’s top two CBs. As NFL Media’s Jane Slater noted on Good Morning Football, there’s familiarity here, too. Horn’s dad, Joe, played for Mike McCarthy in Kansas City.”

Walter Football – Patrick Surtain II, CB

“The Cowboys will be tempted to upgrade their offensive line, but I suspect that they’ll target a potential shutdown cornerback instead to fix their woeful pass defense.”

Lance Zierlein, NFL.com – Patrick Surtain II, CB

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“Dallas lands a tremendous technician with prototypical measurables and football pedigree to bolster the secondary.”

Connor Orr, SI.com – Patrick Surtain II, CB

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“So begins the second-most interesting stretch of the draft. Three divisional opponents in a row, some with overlapping needs (though not for long, as you’ll see below). What I heard: The Eagles would like either one of the Alabama wideouts, or they would prefer to trade back, just like everyone else picking between here and the end of the first round (in Philadelphia’s case, for a more realistic landing spot for corner No. 2 or 3). Dallas goes first, though, and can take Surtain, who did not allow more than 20 completions in a season throughout his college career.”

Charley Casserly, NFL.com – Patrick Surtain II, CB

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“Dallas snags one of the best defensive players in the draft to pair with Trevon Diggs, giving new DC Dan Quinn two good, young cornerbacks.”

Charles Davis, NFL.com – Rashawn Slater, OT

School: Northwestern | Year: Senior

“Yes, the Cowboys have screaming needs on defense, but they also have invested heavily in QB Dak Prescott and need to begin the process of upgrading their offensive line. Slater can start at guard until it’s time to move out to left tackle.”

Josh Edwards, CBS.com – Rashawn Slater, OT

School: Northwestern | Year: Senior

“The offensive line was a big problem for Dallas last season. The Cowboys have shown over time time they are not afraid to invest in the offensive line. Rashawn Slater has five-position flexibility and Dak Prescott is coming off a devastating injury.

Connor Livesay, Blogging The Boys – Patrick Surtain II, CB

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“Surtain is an extremely intelligent, technically sound cornerback with man and zone coverage experience. Surtain fits the height, length, weight, and speed prototypes the Cowboys look for in their corners, and played at a big school in Alabama, something Will McClay values in his early-round selections.”

Bucky Brooks, NFL.com – Patrick Surtain II, CB

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“The polished technician will team with his former ‘Bama partner, Trevon Diggs, to give the Cowboys an intriguing tandem on the outside.”

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

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“The Cowboys still get their cornerback after trading down (with NE). Ideal scenario for them.

Shane Carter, Inside The Star – Jaycee Horn, CB

School: South Carolina | Year: Junior

“The biggest debate for the Cowboys’ first overall selection has been between Patrick Surtain II of Alabama and Horn. Horn excels in his elite man coverage ability, toughness, and speed (4.39 40-yard dash), which would all pair great with Trevon Diggs.”

Ryan Wilson, CBS.com – Patrick Surtain II, CB

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

“Surtain and the Cowboys have been a popular mariage in a lot of mock drafts and the Alabama cornerback is as close to a sure thing as your’re going to get from this class.”

Michael H. Vu, The Landry Hat Michah Parson, LB

School: Penn State | Year: Junior

“As you can see, Patrick Surtain joined the Bengals and fellow Dallas Cowboy, Chidobe Awuzie. The Bengals opted to go cornerback instead of taking an offensive tackle, Penei Sewell. Sewell went to the Dolphins, while Kyle Pitts dropped out of the top 10 board. In the end, I chose Parsons over Farley, Horn, and Pitts. Will I have buyer’s remorse down the road? Possibly.”
