2012 NFL Mock Draft: SB Nation Has Dallas Cowboys Going Defense In Round One

According to the latest mock draft from SB Nation, the Dallas Cowboys will be taking Nebraska Cornhuskers cornerback Alfonzo Dennard with their first pick come April. via

16. Dallas Cowboys - Alfonzo Dennard, CB, Nebraska
Dallas was keenly interested in drafting Nebraska corner Prince Amukamara last year. Having waited a year, they get the better of Nebraska's fearsome duo in the secondary from 2010 to improve their shaky pass defense. 

SB Nation's Mocking The Draft had this to say about Dennard. via

Dennard has been a starter since midway through the 2009 season but really came on as a junior. He finished last season with four interceptions and seven pass breakups while starting 13 games. Dennard is an all-around cornerback who plays the run well, when asked. Dennard strongly considered going pro following his junior season, but his mother urged him to return to school. That will allow Dennard to get his sociology degree.
