2012 NFL Mock Draft: Todd McShay Has Cowboys Selecting Mark Barron

Another day, another 2012 NFL Mock Draft. This time, ESPN's Todd McShay has a full seven-round mock draft up for those with ESPN Insider. McShay projects the Dallas Cowboys to select Alabama safety Mark Barron with the No. 14 overall pick on Thursday night.

This, of course, could be problematic. ESPN's own Adam Schefter appeared on SportsCenter on Wednesday night, saying that the Cowboys will need to trade up if they want to draft Barron. Further, several teams around the NFL view Barron as the sixth best player in the 2012 draft, and if true, then it's virtually impossible that Barron will get out of the top 10.

McShay has the Cowboys going for more secondary help in the second round as well, selecting troubled cornerback Janoris Jenkins from Northern Alabama. Jenkins has run into his fair share of off the field problems, including a pair of marijuana arrests as well as fathering four children by three different women, but has first-round talent.

The folks over at Blogging the Boys are already discussing this, so Cowboys fans should check it out and join the discussion.
