Who Are the Experts Predicting to Dallas Cowboys in First Round of the NFL Draft

The 2013 NFL draft is less than a month away. Unlike most years, it's impossible to find a consensus on the first overall selection, let alone which player the Dallas Cowboys will select with the 18th selection on the evening of Thursday, April 25.

The first round of the annual selection meeting, while highly uncertain right now, will see plenty of surprises. But it does not appear that Dallas' first selection will be much of a surprise.

The Cowboys, reportedly close to extending the contract of quarterback Tony Romo, don't appear to be looking in the direction of a new signal-caller.

Having dumped plenty of resources into the cornerback position a year ago, it's a pretty safe bet that a corner will not be chosen first.

Running backs, fullbacks, linebackers and wide receivers are also off the list at the top, but this still leaves numerous positions that Dallas needs to address in the draft.

So what exactly is the priority?

Well, nobody knows but plenty of people think they do, including myself.

Here´s a look at what a number of experts think about Dallas' first selection of the NFL draft. Each assumes that the Cowboys will go ahead and select at No. 18. In my most recent mock draft I have Dallas trading down for additional picks due to the lack of free-agent dollars with which to spend and also the fact that the Cowboys only have six picks total.

But if things go as they seem now, here's some of the ideas that are floating around.
