2024 NFL mock draft: Cowboys trade Prescott, Lamb as 4 QBs go in Rd 1

The Dallas Cowboys front office appears just fine with possibly resetting at the quarterback position in 2025. They still have 11 months to work out an extension with quarterback Dak Prescott, and odds are the two sides eventually come to an agreement before next league year. The fanbase, up in arms over another of Jerry Jones snake oil sales pitches, this one invoking the misleading “all-in” claim, is tired of the club not bringing in any help from outside the organization. This are worse as there have been several defections this offseason in free agency as Tyron Smith, Tyler Biadasz, Tony Pollard and Michael Gallup are gone from the starting lineup on offense while key sub Dorance Armstrong left from the defense.

Regression seems evident, though with Prescott, CeeDee Lamb, Tyler Smith, Zack Martin, Trevon Diggs, Daron Bland, DeMarcus Lawrence and Micah Parsons still in house, pretending the cupboard is bare is a huge overreaction. All have made Pro-Bowls and most have made All-Pro teams. But what if all of those players weren’t there? What if Dallas were to trade a couple of stars to usher in a new era? What would the haul look like and how would the first two rounds of the draft fall out?

In this iteration, with the Pro Football Focus mock draft simulator controlling the other 31 clubs, Dallas looks for and finds a trade partner for their two biggest offensive stars who haven’t yet received extensions, Prescott and Lamb. We look at the trades they could make if they were really willing to reset the franchise, with seven rounds of picks, along with a first-round mock for the entire league.
