Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft and Big Board: Updated Day 2 Predictions

Round 6, No. 189 Pick (from Oakland Raiders): Kyle Friend, Center, Temple

The Cowboys still need to find a legitimate backup at the center position, and Kyle Friend fills that hole. The former Temple offensive lineman is a solid center prospect who would be able to fill in well if Travis Frederick got hurt. 

Friend (6’2″, 305 lbs) is a stout center with big-time power behind his legs and his hands. He easily moves defenders off their spot with great hip snap and leg drive. He is a smart player who can handle protection calls and process information quickly. Furthermore, he has the athletic ability to get out and make blocks in space. 

The problem with Friend is that his short arms (30 ⅞”, per ESPN.comcause him to not initiate contact with defensive linemen; however, his ability to reset his hands and use his strength creates consistently.

 

Round 6, No. 212 Pick (Compensatory): Rodney Coe, Defensive Tackle, Akron

The Cowboys continue to try to bolster their defensive line with Rodney Coe in this scenario. Coe is a former running back who is athletic for an interior defender. Oftentimes, you can see him make plays near the sideline because of his freakish athletic ability.

While Hassan Ridgeway will likely be an under tackle with Dallas, Coe will likely find his home at nose tackle.
