The Dallas Cowboys' 2014 draft class isn't going to be accurately predicted in any mock draft (not even close).
So why do them?
Mock drafts have value because they allow teams to visualize different paths they can create for themselves (or those that will be created by virtue of the selections made by other teams).
The Cowboys will likely perform their own mock drafts in the coming months as a way to understand the probability of certain prospects being available for them to pick in each round. Single mock drafts are analogous to individual presidential polls; alone, they don't have much value because preferences can change over short periods of time. But a series of such drafts can allow teams to better anticipate their options.
Further, mocks also allow us to analyze prospects in ever greater detail and forecast how a proposed selection early in the proceedings could affect the rest of a team's draft. With each selection, teams should be asking themselves "What does this player give us? What does his selection limit us from doing in subsequent rounds?"
Without further ado, let's get into one potential path for the Dallas Cowboys in 2014.
