2011 NFL Mock Draft: Dallas Takes Wisconsin Defensive End J.J. Watt
What Position Will the Cowboys Target for Upgrade?
It’s no secret that the Dallas Cowboys had a tough year in 2010 however the roots of that tough year are more difficult to figure out. By all accounts the Cowboys have a ton of talent on the roster and seem like a team that could have been in the playoffs a year ago if a few things had gone differently.
Well this year they come into the season with a new head coach, a new defensive coordinator and hopefully a healthy quarterback. This pick will give the Cowboys a chance to upgrade any number of a few positions. I think they grab a defensive lineman here.
J.J. Watt is coming off a solid career at Wisconsin. He also proved his value at the combine by having a really great day. Watt is an explosive athlete that could fit well in the Cowboy’s 3-4 scheme. He also is able to change directions well and plays with a low center of gravity.
The Cowboys could also target on offensive tackle if they think there is a good enough prospect to take at nine or they could grab Prince Amukamara who would provide the Cowboys with a top tier cornerback with a very high ceiling. Either way I don’t see how they go wrong.
