The Dallas Cowboys have Super Bowl hopes in 2022. Here’s how they can use their NFL Draft picks to make themselves the class of the NFC.

Expectations are always high in Dallas, making it problematic that the Cowboys haven’t gotten past the Divisional Round of the playoffs since 1996. This year’s postseason flameout has led to rumors that Jerry Jones will eventually target Sean Payton as Dallas’ head coach, but for now, Mike McCarthy is back to try and help the Cowboys take advantage of a weakened NFC in 2022.

The Cowboys have historically been good drafters and they own six picks as of post time (note: compensatory selections have not yet been announced, so Dallas could add more picks in the coming weeks). Let’s take a look at a pre-offseason mock draft for the Cowboys to see how they can improve their roster in 2022.

Kenyon Green

OG Texas A&M

One of the strengths for the Cowboys over the past decade, which has been due in large part to a wise decision to invest premium draft picks in the unit. Tyron Smith and Zack Martin have become perennial Pro Bowlers after being first-round selections, a trend that Dallas hopes will continue with Kenyon Green.

A 6-foot-4, 325 lb lineman for Texas A&M, Green has started for the past three years primarily at offensive tackle. Green’s skill-set makes him a better fit at guard, which Dallas can use since starting guard Connor Williams is set to test the free-agent market.

The ideal situation here would be for Green to step in and start right away, but even if he is a rotational player as a rookie it would give Dallas time to groom him as a future starter.
