Dallas Cowboys 2023 Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will update our Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Dallas Cowboys from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Cowboys:

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/3)

23. Noah Sewell, LB, Oregon

The younger brother of Penei Sewell, Sewell is well-strapped together with the power, pursuit and recognition skills that will play well in the NFL. He led the Ducks in tackles last season (106) and is arguably the best off-ball linebacker in college football.

Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (5/3)

24. Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

The rebuild continues for the Dallas offensive line, as they land Skoronski to start at right tackle, allowing 2022 first-round pick Tyler Smith to remain as a dominant guard.

Fox Sports - Jason McIntyre (5/3)

25. Brenton Cox Jr., EDGE, Florida

Cox started at Georgia, transferred to Florida and has tormented SEC QBs to the tune of 24.5 sacks in 25 games.

PFF - Michael Renner (5/2)

24. Eli Ricks, CB, Alabama

Ricks did the unthinkable this offseason by transferring from LSU to Alabama. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound corner earned an 85.6 coverage grade as a true freshman in 2020 before a shoulder injury cut his sophomore season short.

CBS - Ryan Wilson (5/2)

24. Marvin Mims, WR, Oklahoma

The Cowboys keep adding skill position players to fuel this high-powered offense and Mims, while not a burner, is an incredible athlete with great hands.

The Draft Network - Joe Marino (4/30)

24. Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson

The Cowboys linebacker corps is littered with question marks and it's a position that Dallas priorities. Simpson is an explosive linebacker with a high recruiting pedigree that emerged as a star for Clemson in 2021.

The 33rd Team - Michael Schottey (4/30)

25. Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina

Earlier, I mentioned how No. 1 wide receivers are getting smaller in the NFL thanks to wide open spread schemes that favor route running and separation. Cam Smith is the antidote. Yeah, at 170lbs, he's lighter in the shorts than NFL teams might like, but he's one of the best coverage guys in college football.

Pro Football Network - Cam Mellor (4/30)

24. Jordan Battle, S, Alabama

There really isn't anywhere Jordan Battle can't line up and improve the Dallas Cowboys' secondary. With his versatility, Battle could slide into the starting strong safety role or stay at free safety.

He can cover from the slot and brings an impressive range on the back end. Battle is strong at the catch point in single coverage. Nonetheless, roaming as a member of a two-high safety group would play well to his skills.

Barstool Sports - Steven Cheah (4/30)

25. Marvin Mims, WR, Oklahoma

Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson are both gone, so Dallas goes looking not too far from home to find Mims early in the Draft next year.
