For this Mock Draft, I used the Pro Football Focus Draft Simulator available on their website. Use the same simulator and send your 2022 mock drafts to me on Instagram. In this year’s draft, through 3 rounds, the Cowboys hold the 24th, 56th, and 88th overall picks.
24.) Chris Olave, WR Ohio State
- Many of you probably know I am a big Chris Olave fan. I would have no problems with the Cowboys taking him at 24 overall. With the departure of Amari Cooper, and Cedrick Wilson the WR room in Dallas is lacking a pure route runner.. The Cowboys and Dak Prescott could use someone that is technically sound in routing running and gets open with ease. Chris Olave would do both of those things. Some fans may not see WR as a need now that the Cowboys have signed James Washington. It is still a need for this team. Olave would round out this wide-receiver room very well and would be a solid #3 option heading into 2022.
56.) Leo Chenal, LB Wisconsin
- With the return of Leighton Vander Esch, the Cowboys’ LB room looks a bit better for 2022. There is still time for the team to make another signing in free agency like Bobby Wagner to alleviate some of the need to draft a LB. With Nakobe Dean and Devin Loyd off the board in my Round 1 mock, I decided it was best to look for depth at the LB position in the 2nd round. Chenal played well in 2021 and was awarded a 91.5 grade from Pro Football Focus.
88.) Ed Ingram, G LSU
- I’m sure a lot of people wanted an offensive lineman earlier in the draft than pick #88. With Ed Ingram, the Cowboys would be getting a solid player that has the potential to start Year 1. Ed Ingram has the athleticism to pull on outside runs and started at both guard spots during his career at LSU. If Dallas can come away with Ed Ingram in the 3rd round of the draft, it will be a big win for the organization.
