Another offseason begins in Dallas but Vamos Cowboys is not resting. Each week through the NFL Draft, journalist MP Romano will publish the average ranking of the top 9 picks, and their estimated pick for the Cowboys.
In the coming weeks, we’ll know a lot more about the situation from quarterback Dak Prescott. Starting February 23, Dallas can use the franchise tag to keep it for another year, but for that they would have to get rid of nearly $ 20 million of the salary cap.
With every day we get closer to that date without a deal, the possibility grows that Dallas could be without Prescott in 2021, or maybe 2021 is the last year with Prescott as its quarterback.
In this mock, we will assume that Jerry Jones and Dak Prescott find a way to reach an agreement. But if there is no deal before the draft, it is very likely that Dallas will trade up the draft to select its quarterback of the future, leaving Rayne Dakota Prescott in the past.

Who is Patrick Surtain II?
Last week it was Caleb Farley who was chosen by Dallas in the mock, but this week the chosen one is another cornerback who would play with Trevon Diggs.
Although Farley is a good athlete, it is also an enigma as he did not play in 2020 and had only a good year in college in 2019. Instead, Patrick Surtain II has four years in Alabama as a starter, playing in 40 games in total.
Surtain isn’t the athlete Farley is either, but he’s a good, consistent player who deserves to be a top 15 draft pick.
Patrick Surtain II (Alabama CB 2) is a fun study. Fluid athlete with great length. On this play, he doesn’t give up and recovers nicely by getting a hand on the ball at the end. Love seeing this! pic.twitter.com/EnFoXbS6qB

The son of Patrick Surtain, a Dolphin player who went to three Pro Bowls, Surtain II has football in his blood and is the perfect size to be a cornerback in the NFL. Growing up with the sport in his life from childhood, Surtain possesses a good intelligence for the sport that includes patience and discipline on the field.
Like his father, Surtain II also plays with very good technique. Therefore, he plays with a lot of confidence, is difficult to cheat, and can react faster than other cornerbacks to the play. It’s no surprise then that Alabama’s picky head coach Nick Saban has trusted him since his freshman year in college.
What he lacks in athletics, Surtain makes up for with his intelligence. He won’t be the fastest player on the field or the strongest, but if the Cowboys want a cornerback to play for Diggs who is consistent, dependable and smart, Surtain II is their man.
