Before we hear all of the complaints about the unrealistic nature of this mock draft, we must start by saying it is just for fun.  We simply want to take a look at what it would it be like if the Cowboys decided to assemble their offensive line of the future in only one draft.

This mock will take us through the first four Dallas selections.  While the likelihood of this entire mock draft playing out is effectively nil, each individual selection has a tremendous shot of coming to fruition.

First Round

Maurkice Pouncey, C/G, Florida

Pouncey is a guy we love and one who we actually have rated slightly higher than Idaho guard Mike Iupati .  We see Pouncey as more versatile and the eventual replacement for either Kyle Kosier or Andre Gurode.

Second Round

Vladimir Ducasse, G/T, UMass

Some scouts label Ducasse as "a man without a defined position," but we see this as a blessing in disguise.  Ducasse could theoretically play every offensive line spot and even lined up on defense at the Senior Bowl.  More positions equals more opportunities for success.

Third Round

Tony Washington, OT, Abilene Christian

Washington will drop due to character concerns, but those issues seem to be behind him.  Like Ducasse, he is a bit raw, so Dallas may go another direction if they are seeking an immediate starter.  In the third round, though, they may be satisfied with Washington's upside.
