The latest edition of the Cincy Jungle Writer's Mock Draft is here. Be sure to keep up with all of the picks in a out stream page.
Next up are the Dallas Cowboys. Who will they take that gets them over the 8-8 hump?
Mickey: Cowboys take Hasean 'Ha Ha' Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
Very fast safety that has long limbs and is athletic. Often gets a jump on the ball as the play develops. The Cowboys need to improve their secondary and Clinton-Dix is a player that could do just that. He can be fooled by misdirection and sometimes bites on play action but can be coached to improve his overall game. The Cowboys would be happy to have this talent at the safety spot.
Anthony: Cowboys take Odell Beckham, WR, LSU
Aside from Dez Bryant, the Cowboys don't have much firepower. Some believe that Beckham is the best receiver not named Watkins in this year's draft, thought he doesn't have the measurables that Mike Evans does. He could be a great complimentary player on the outside to give Tony Romo the best chance possible for success.
Jason: Cowboys take Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
The Cowboys shock the world and draft the successor to Tony Romo with this pick. Manziel is as electrifying prospect, but he's also one with a lot of correctable flaws and needs a year or 2 on the bench to develop and learn he can't get away with the decision-making he had in college.
With Romo now 34 and coming off another back surgery, it's time to look at for his eventual replacement. He still has a few good years left before the Cowboys should move on, and that's when Manziel comes in and ensures they don't go through several years of finding a suitable replacement.
