Star-Telegram’s first mock draft of 2021 has the Dallas Cowboys picking a cornerback : In the first Star-Telegram mock draft the Cowboys will have the option to pick between Virginia Tech CB Caleb Farley and Alabama CB Patrick Surtain II.
When it comes to draft philosophy, the Dallas Cowboys will forever opt for the “best player available” model. That’s how they wound up selecting receiver CeeDee Lamb with the 17th overall pick last year. But as the Cowboys have worked through free agency, there is no question that their top need heading into the 2021 NFL Draft is at cornerback. The team has already beefed up the defensive line and is making moves at safety.
