We’ve reached pick No. 16. This selection belongs to the Dallas Cowboys.
It’s amazing to think that a defense that made Josh McCown and Matt Flynn look like Peyton Manning only surrendered 432 points last season. That was the NFC’s fifth-worst mark. Their historically-bad defense allowed the most yards, most passing yards and most first downs in team history. They finished last in the league in total defense. They allowed the third-most yards in NFL history.
How is this 16th selection anyone other than a defender? Two of our mock-drafters went with offense. Would the Cowboys have any interest in any quarterback who plummets down the draft board and out of the top 10? This collaborative mock draft includes six different writers. Each of them go a different way with their selection.
