The Dallas Cowboys need instant contributors from the 2014 NFL draft, so this mock draft will focus on the players most likely to become immediate impact guys from each round. The Cowboys have 11 draft picks this year—at least one in every round except the sixth.
This particular Cowboys mock draft won’t include every pick, but rather the player from each round in which the ‘Boys have a selection who is most likely to help Dallas from day one. We’re not necessarily looking for the most likely path, or even players to whom the Cowboys have been linked, but just a player in every round except the sixth who could be available, who fills a hole and who would make an immediate impact in Big D.
To determine which prospects are potentially the most impactful, both talent and need will be considered. The Cowboys want the best players possible, of course, but the ones with the greatest immediate potential will almost certainly be at positions of need.
