There seems to be no consensus yet on which player Dallas will take (you rarely get analyst consensus at the end of the first round) but there is strong consensus on the position Dallas will select, which should come as no surprise as defensive end is arguably the Cowboys biggest need.

Of the 14 mock drafts, 11 have projected Dallas to take one of the many talented edge rushers in this deep 2017 class.
