Our latest Dallas Cowboys nock draft has them filling holes on both the offensive and defensive lines while also bringing in a few skill players

With the 2022 NFL Draft less than a week away, the Dallas Cowboys are finalizing their draft boards in preparation for the big event.

The front office in Dallas has been criticized heavily for their moves this offseason, which included trading Amari Cooper, losing Randy Gregory and Cedrick Wilson in free agency, and simply being far too conservative in their approach to signing players.

As frustrating as that can be for fans, they do know that the drafting by the Cowboys brass has been much better in recent years. That’s kept them competitive, and they aim to stay on top of the NFC East by adding new starters on both lines in this seven-round mock draft.

Dallas Cowboys mock draft Round 1 Pick: Zion Johnson, OG, Boston College

With their first pick in this mock, Dallas adds Boston College guard Zion Johnson. A 6-foot-3, 314-pounder, he has all the tools to be a starter in the NFL and should be a great replacement for Connor Williams.

As good as he is on the field, Johnson impressed the ‘Good Morning Football’ crew when he spoke with them about his interests outside of football which included earning degrees in two tech fields.

Lauren Barash of The Landry Hat broke this down while claiming Johnson is the team’s favorite draft prospect.

“The Cowboys’ prospect favorite is incredibly poised and well-spoken. He told the crew that he got degrees in both Computer Science and Cyber Security, which is incredibly impressive considering a handful of collegiate athletes tend to just pick the easiest major and skip class whenever they can. Boston College is also one of the most competitive private institutions in the country.” —  Barash, The Landry Hat

Johnson seems to be the perfect fit in Dallas and as long as he’s on the board at No. 24, he should be hearing his name called.
