NFL Mock Draft 2012: Cowboys Use Pick On Nick Perry

The Dallas Cowboys are picking Nick Perry of the USC Trojans with the 14th overall pick in the latest SB Nation NFL Mock Draft. There were reports that the Cowboys were considering trading up for the fourth overall pick, but no action on that so far.

Here is what the crew at Mocking the Draft had to say about Perry:

"The Cowboys need a corner, but corners are not as highly valued as pass rushers. Perry jumps ahead of Courtney Upshaw because of Pro Day performance, and because Perry projects better as a 3-4 rush linebacker."

Perry had 49 career tackles at USC, which included 16.5 for losses, with 12 sacks and 10 career starts.
