SB Nation's Matthew Fairburn released his latest mock draft on Monday morning, and he has the Dallas Cowboys picking Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd.

This pick hasn't changed from last week's mock draft, where Kadar also had Dallas picking Floyd.

Sharrif Floyd is the type of prospect that tends to rise in the pre-draft process. He's incredibly athletic and plays the game with a non-stop motor. Floyd would be a nice fit at the 5-technique position, assuming the Cowboys stick with the 3-4 defense.

It still hasn't been confirmed if new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin will ditch the 3-4 and move to his signature Tampa 2, so the Cowboys' offseason needs aren't clear. Still, Floyd would be a value pick here with Jay Ratliff's health and production a big concern.

Dallas also needs help on the offensive line, so Oklahoma OT Lane Johnson and North Carolina G Jonathan Cooper are both possibilities at this spot.
