DALLAS — Updated at 4:01 p.m. with details from a second podcast.
The Dallas Cowboys will have 10 picks in the 2021 NFL Draft, with four of those being compensatory picks.
Dallas will make its first pick at No. 10, followed by No. 44 in round two.
Round 1 scenarios that make sense
In this episode of the Locked On Cowboys Podcast, Marcus Mosher and Landon McCool run through a mock draft simulation. They explore different options at pick No. 10, potentially trading up from pick No. 44 and all of the different ways directions the Cowboys could go in the 2021 NFL Draft.
When it comes to the best options for the Cowboys at No. 10, selecting Patrick Surtain II would make the draft so much easier for Dallas. Mosher and McCool describe how he could fit into the defense and what his ceiling would be in Dan Quinn's defense.
Then, they trade up from the second round to add another impact defender. They explain why history shows the Cowboys will likely be aggressive in Round 2 and who they may target.
Finally, they finish out the simulator talking about potential Day 2 and Day 3 picks that could help add depth to the defense.
Three safeties worth consideration
In this episode of the Locked On Cowboys Podcast, Marcus Mosher and Landon McCool are joined by John Owning to discuss three Day 2 safeties that could be on the Cowboys' radar: Richie Grant, Jevon Holland, and Jamar Johnson.
Does Grant make sense for the Cowboys at No. 44? Would he be the perfect second-round choice for the team?
What is the ceiling of Oregon FS Holland and is he a better prospect than Grant? Or, is Johnson the best value play of them all in Round 3? All that and so much more!
