Dane Brugler, one of the top independent draft analysts in the country, has done his latest four-round mock draft. He has the Cowboys taking USC offensive tackle Tyron Smith with the ninth overall pick. Brugler is high on Smith, calling him a top-10 pick who likely will start his career at right tackle before sliding to the left side. The Cowboys, of course, are looking to replace right tackle Marc Colombo. Doug Free was solid in his first season as a starter at left tackle.
Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara and Smith seem to be the likeliest choice for the Cowboys if they stay at No. 9. (Ignore anything you've readabout Amukamara being off their draft board.)
Brugler has the Cowboys selecting UCLA safety Rahim Moore in the second round, Penn State center Stefen Wisniewski in the third and Arizona State defensive tackle Lawrence Guy in the fourth.
