2018 NFL Mock Draft: Dallas Cowboys Select OG Will Hernandez at No. 19

How hungry are the Cowboys to invest highly in their offensive linemen again?

With the 19th pick of the 2018 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select...

Will Hernandez, OG, UTEP

The selection and write-up were made by Topanga Jeff:

The Cowboys have a number of positions that are in need of an upgrade. The recent departure of Dez Bryant opened up a hole at WR, which could conceivably be filled by Calvin Ridley, DJ Moore, or Courtland Sutton. On defense, all three levels could be addressed, either by an athletic linebacker in Leighton Vander Esch, a cornerback like Josh Jackson, or the twitchy Taven Bryan at tackle.

In the end, the ‘Boys select mauler Will Hernandez from UTEP, to fill the void left by Jonathan Cooper’s move to the 49ers. The recent Cowboy success has hinged on their dominant offensive line, and Hernandez should step right in to enable continued success here.

Pokorny: “I’m not saying this is wrong, but it just sounds funny that a team would need to fill a void left by an offensive lineman who started three games for the Browns in 2016 before the team let him go. Cooper had actually played pretty well in his stint with Cleveland, and had somewhat of a career revival last year with 13 starts in Dallas. The Cowboys at their best will run the ball better than anyone, but might have enough talent to be able to address this position in a later round.”

The Detroit Lions are up next, led by clefan4lif.
