2012 NFL Mock Draft: Cowboys Select Memphis DT Dontari Poe

Adding some beef to the defensive line is a direction that the Dallas Cowboys could go with the No. 14 pick. Dontari Poe, the 6-5, 350-pound lineman out of Memphis, is a nice fit for the Dallas defense, according to SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber.

Maybe I'm buying the rumor mill's fodder about the Cowboys liking Poe so much that they do not want to draw attention to him, but the pick does work for them. Dallas also has the flexibility to use Poe in a rotation on their defensive line while he develops.

Poe is a run-stopping force in the middle of the line. As a junior in 2011, he recorded 33 tackles and had eight tackles for loss.
