Mock Simulator: Fans Draft The First Five Rounds


Editors Note: In the months running up to the Draft the staff will be simulating mock drafts using this “On The Clock” simulator. By nature, this can lead to many improbably selections, but that is just the nature of the draft, isn't it? Submit a picture of your favorite drafts to #CowboysMock for a chance to have your selections analyzed by Bryan Broaddus

Today, we give all the fans their chance at the first five rounds.

Devin Kowalik (@DCdevinK)

1st Round: Taylor Lewan – OT, Michigan

2nd Round: Jordan Matthews – WR, Vanderbilt

3rd Round: Kareem Martin – DE, North Carolina

4th Round: Dominique Easley – DT, Florida

5th Round: Michael Sam – DE, Missouri 

Bryan's Analysis: This draft has a great deal of promise. I believe that Devin got all the players in the right now. There are some questions about Martin in the 3rd but that's where I believe he is going. Love the pick of Easley in the 4thbecause history will tell you that is where those medical questions end up. I have always believed that Sam would end up between rounds 4-5 and there is something to work with there.

1st Round: Mike Evans – WR, Texas A&M

2nd Round: Scott Chrichton – DE, Oregon State

3rd Round: Austin Sefarian-Jenkins, TE, Washington

4th Round: Dominique Easley – DT, Florida

5th Round: Aaron Murray – QB, Georgia

Bryan's Analysis: There is plenty to like with Evans as the selection at 16 but he does play the same position as Dez Bryant and this club could use more of a "Z" or move guy. Chrichton is a late 1st round and in the 2nd is a steal. The foot injury must have landed Sefarian-Jenkins here. I thought for his size, he needed to be more of a dominate inline blocker and he was more of a get in the way guy. See the previous draft about my thoughts on Easley and Murray in the 5th makes a great deal of sense for the future. You are not married to Orton or Weeden, so no problem here.

1st Round: Johnny Manziel – QB, Texas A&M

2nd Round: Stephon Tuitt – DE, Notre Dame

3rd Round: Ka'Deem Carey – RB, Arizona

4th Round:Daquan Jones – DT, Penn State

5th Round: Kareem Martin – DE, North Carolina

Bryan's Analysis: If Manziel is there at 16, regardless of what the needs might be, I think it would be difficult for this front office to pass on him. The closer we get to the draft, the more we will figure that out. Tuitt is a much better fit as a 3-4 defensive end or a one technique in this scheme. If Bishop Sankey was there in the 3rd, I would take him over Carey but I like the thought of the pick there. I think that Jones is a 3rd and Martin much higher as well. Nice job with those picks back-to-back.

Rhoderick Douthit (@RoderickDouthit)

1st Round: Khalil Mack – OLB, Buffalo

2nd Round: Scott Chrichton – DE, Oregon State

3rd Round: Cyrus Kouandjio – OT, Alabama

4th Round: Bishop Sankey – RB, Washington

5th Round:Kareem Martin – DE, North Carolina

Bryan's Analysis: Interesting how this fell for Rhoderick here. I am a bigger fan of Anthony Barr but it's hard to pass on Mack here. It is very close between the two. Kouandijo is the 3rd is a big picture selection and I like his idea here. That knee doesn't sound as bad as first thought. He is the type of player that I feel like will only get better. Sankey in the 4th would be my dream but he is gone well before this. 

Chuck Wrenn (@HanoverYakker)

1st Round: Zack Martin – OT, Notre Dame

2nd Round: Trent Murphy – DE, Stanford

3rd Round: Dominique Easley – DT, Florida

4th Round: Josh Huff – WR, Oregon

5th Round: Aaron Murray – QB, Georgia

Bryans Analysis: The reason I really like this draft is there is nothing flashy about it but Chuck just went out and selected football players. Martin could be an All-Pro guard one day. Murphy can play all over the field and gives you some toughness while doing it. Easley is one of my favorite players. Huff is a steal in the 4th. He has the size, hands plus he knows how to play in the slot.

Nick Welp (@NickWelp) 1st Round:Sammy Watkins – WR, Clemson

2nd Round: Kony Ealy – DE, Missouri

3rd Round: Jack Mewhort – OT, Ohio State

4th Round: Daquan Jones – DT, Penn State

5th Round: Jeremy Hill – RB, LSU

Bryan's Analysis: Somehow Nick ended up with Watkins getting to him at 16 and if this happens, you just hand in the card and move on. I believe if this were to happen and Watkins starts to slide down the board, the phone will be ringing in St Louis or Chicago before Dallas has a chance to grab him. I am so mixed on Ealy but in the 2nd round, you have to make that happen. This is the first time that I have seen Mewhort in a mock draft for Cowboys and another solid selection. From what I have seen from Jeremy Hill and his career, he would be a nice fit running the ball downhill in this offense.


Mike Caverly (@TexanDownUnder)

1st Round: HaHa Clinton-Dix – S, Alabama

2nd Round: Trent Murphy – DE, Stanford

3rd Round: Jackson Jeffcoat – DE, Texas

4th Round: Will Sutton – DT, Arizona State

5th Round: Josh Huff – WR, Oregon

Bryan's Analysis: Mike hits the need of a safety early with Clinton-Dix and there a lot of folks that would be okay with that but not sure this club is one of those, I guess we will see. I like the selection of Jeffcoat in the 3rd. Would like to see him get stronger with those 18 reps but plenty to work with. Will Sutton plays much better than he tests, just remember those Arizona State players in the past that everyone had trouble with. I like this draft.

John Nelson (@Nello69)

1st Round: Anthony Barr – OLB, UCLA

2nd Round: Timmy Jernigan – DT, Florida State

3rd Round: Trent Murphy – DE, Stanford

4th Round: Lache Seastrunk – RB, Baylor

5th Round: Josh Huff – WR, Oregon

Bryan's Analysis: I don't know how my GM buddy in England pulled this one off but he did. If Jernigan is there in the 2nd, run the card to the front along with the Murphy pick in the 3rd. Seastrunk has a shot to be the real wild card. This was a draft where every player was taken a round later than they would probably go. This draft has a ton of value to it, really nice job.
