Davis mock draft 1.0: Cowboys boost D with Bosa

Laremy Tunsil - OT, Ole Miss: Tunsil is the best offensive lineman in the draft. It's a priority for the Titans to protect QB Marcus Mariota.

Jared Goff - QB, Cal: Goff still needs to add some heft, but he can sling it, and will benefit working with head coach Hue Jackson.

Jalen Ramsey - DB, Florida State: Ramsey is arguably the best athlete in the draft. He might be used to take Eric Weddle's spot as a playmaking safety.

Joey Bosa - DE, Ohio State: Bosa has a tremendous package of size, strength, speed, and a motor that refuses to shut off. Dallas delays selecting a QB.

Vernon Hargreaves - CB, Florida: In a win or else year for the Jags, this Gator helps them slow down the flyers in Indy and Houston.

Ronnie Stanley - OT, Notre Dame: The Ravens need to keep upgrading their offensive line, and Stanley provides a significant start.

Jaylon Smith - LB, Notre Dame: Smith's injury in the Fiesta Bowl complicates his evaluation, but he is tremendous. Without the injury, he's in play in the top three.

Myles Jack - LB, UCLA: Word is Jack's rehab is coming along just fine. Best thing that happened to him and Jaylon Smith? Todd Gurley's recovery from his knee injury and super rookie season.

DeForest Buckner - DE, Oregon: Buckner looks like a hoops power forward, but can bend and play with leverage and strength.

Ezekiel Elliot - RB, Ohio State: I think that there is a "Running Back Renaissance" occurring in football, even in the NFL. The best running back in college football can run with power, speed and catch the ball.

A'Shawn Robinson - DT, Alabama: Robinson must continue to work on playing hard every down, and Bears DC Vic Fangio knows how to get the best out of him.

Jarran Reed - DT, Alabama: Reed might be the best defensive tackle vs. the run in the draft, but I think he will provide inside pressure vs. the pass, as well.

Taylor Decker - OT, Ohio State: A left tackle in college, if selected, he would be ticketed to start at right tackle.

Mackensie Alexander - CB, Clemson: Alexander was really impressive down the stretch as the Tigers played their way into the national title game. He provides talent and verve.

Carson Wentz - QB, North Dakota State: The Rams run to the podium if this talented passer somehow slips this far. Think it can't happen? What number selection was Aaron Rodgers his draft year?

Kevin Dodd - DE, Clemson: Some want to dismiss him as a "one-year wonder," but others see Dodd as just beginning to approach his potential. He was a terror vs. Alabama in the championship game.

Reggie Ragland - LB, Alabama: Ragland can do it all. He provides the stoutness needed to play inside, and has the agility to rush the passer, as well. Head coach Dan Quinn will use him creatively.

Jack Conklin - OT, Michigan State: Someone has to try to block J.J. Watt in the AFC South, and Conklin -- a former walk on -- plays with toughness and fight.

Robert Nkemdiche - DT, Ole Miss: Nkemdiche has a few off-field questions to answer, but Rex Ryan has never been fearful of coaching talented players with a few flaws.

Leonard Floyd - LB, Georgia: Floyd is an excellent edge/speed rusher. He will benefit from the tremendous interior players on the Jets roster.

Sheldon Rankins - DT, Louisville: Some scouts see inconsistent tape, but he was a monster during Senior Bowl week, and Washington needs to get better against the run (31st in 2015).

Vernon Butler - DT, Louisiana Tech: Butler has the abilty to move up and down the line, and had no problems with the big stage of the Senior Bowl in Mobile.

Laquon Treadwell - WR, Ole Miss: There are concerns about Treadwell's straight-line speed, but the Vikings are seeking more targets for their young quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater.

Corey Coleman - WR, Baylor: The Bengals might be losing a couple of key wide receivers, and Coleman has a chance to develop into the speed threat that helps stretch the field.

Eli Apple - CB, Ohio State: Apple is another good cover guy who improved each year in school, and fits a big need for the Steelers.

Shaq Lawson - DE, Clemson: The Seahawks can never have too many guys that can rush the passer.

Kenny Clark - DT, UCLA: With questions looming about B.J. Raji's return, this big man can plug into the middle of the Packers' defense.

Noah Spence - OLB, Eastern Kentucky: Spence fits the scheme well, and adds to Kansas City's riches of pass rushers. Momentum is growing for him after a stellar week at the Senior Bowl.

Darron Lee - OLB, Ohio State: Lee is in the mold of an Arizona defender -- fast, versatile, and can tackle and cover.

Vonn Bell - S, Ohio State: The Panthers want to get younger and faster at safety, and Bell's coverage skills are vital in the NFC South.

Hunter Henry - TE, Arkansas: Yes, Owen Daniels was excellent during the Super Bowl run, but the trade for Vernon Davis did not yield dividends.
