The Dallas Cowboys bolster their defensive line by adding Devonte Wyatt from the National Champion Georgia Bulldogs in this 7-round mock draft
This offseason has started out rather well for the Dallas Cowboys as they were able to keep both coordinators despite Dan Quinn and Kellen Moore both getting a lot of hype in head coaching searches. With that stumbling block out of the way, they can now turn their attention to roster-building.
While they will need to figure out what to do when it comes to retaining free agents and adding some from the outside, they also need to be focused intently on the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft.
That’s where our attention is today as we have a seven-round mock draft that starts out with the Dallas Cowboys bolstering their defensive line by going after a player from the National Champion Georgia Bulldogs.
Dallas Cowboys Round 1 pick: Devonte Wyatt, DT, Georgia
With their first pick in this mock, Dallas adds Devonta Wyatt, who fills a massive need for them. The Cowboys haven’t had a big run-stuffer such as Wyatt in years. Having said that, the 6-foot-3, 315-pound defensive tackle is also able to penetrate from the three-tech position, giving him the positional flexibility this team loves.
Wyatt improved steadily every season at Georgia and finally broke out into stardom in 2021. His arrow is pointing up and many scouts say his best football is still ahead of him.
Dallas Cowboys Round 2 pick: Darian Kinnard, IOL, Kentucky
Connor Williams is likely gone and the Cowboys will need a new left guard. That’s why they add Darian Kinnard from Kentucky, who played tackle for the Wildcats but is expected to shift inside at the next level.
Kinnard should help the middle of their line improve and considering the issues they had last year, this would be a welcome improvement for Dallas.
