Here are the players Scouts Inc. projects to go to the Cowboys in its seven-round mock draft ... and the players I think the Cowboys would pick at each spot given the guys on the board.
First round (27th overall)
Scouts Inc.: Boise State CB Kyle Wilson
There would be a lot of high fives at Valley Ranch if Wilson is there for the taking at No. 27. If he isn't there -- and the Cowboys don't move out of this spot -- Rutgers CB Devin McCourty is a solid bet.
Second round (59th overall)
Scouts Inc.: Maryland OT Bruce Campbell
Campbell is a top-10 athlete with late-round production. The Cowboys might be willing to gamble on his potential in the second round. But, if South Florida FS Nate Allen is there a few picks earlier, expect the Cowboys to try to move up to get him.
Third round (90th overall)
Scouts Inc.: Oregon S T.J. Ward
If they haven't drafted a safety and Georgia Tech's Morgan Burnett is still available, the Cowboys would pull the trigger quickly. He's a second-round possibility, but Scouts Inc. has him sliding into the early fourth.
Fourth round (125th overall)
Scouts Inc.: Texas WR Jordan Shipley
This is a good value pick. Shipley would improve the Cowboys' return units and challenge for playing time as a slot receiver.
Sixth round (196th overall)
Scouts Inc.: Illinois TE Mike Hoomanawanui
Seventh round (234th overall)
Scouts Inc.: Eastern Kentucky OT Derek Hardman
Can't say I'm familiar with Hardman's work. If the draft goes down like this, guard/center and inside linebackers would be the two biggest needs the Cowboys failed to address.
