In our first mock draft of the offseason, we believe the Cowboys will look to fill two of their most immediate needs in the first round- defensive line and wide receiver.
There has been much debate in recent weeks about which lineman the Cowboys like more- LSU's Marcus Spears or Maryland's Shawne Merriman.
Both players bring different skills to the table and both players have been interviewed by the Cowboys this offseason. Merriman has the versatility to play as an outside linebacker or down lineman, while Spears brings a more physical presence up front.
For now, we are going with Spears as the Cowboys' first overall pick.
With the Cowboys' second pick of the first round, we believe they'll look at wide receivers, in particular South Carolina's Troy Williamson and UAB's Roddy White.
If Williamson is still available, it's a no-brainer- the Cowboys take him. If he's not, the Cowboys will look at Roddy White, Mark Clayton, or could elect to go in a different direction entirely.
Williamson can stretch the field, and his combine numbers left a great impression on scouts around the league. If he's available when the Cowboys go on the clock with the No. 20 selection, they have to take him.
