Dane Brugler recently released his post-NFL Combine complete mock draft 3.0 for Athleticism and made somewhat surprising selections for the Dallas Cowboys. In the first round, he decided to recruit Amari Cooper’s replacement for them.

24. Dallas Cowboys — Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

The Cowboys’ No. 1 goal this offseason: Make the offense more explosive. Amari Cooper won’t be with the team much longer, and Burks might be too talented to move on here. The fact that he’s from the alma mater of Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones is just a bonus.

Treylon Burks comes out of a somewhat ho-hum performance at the Scouting Combine. There were many who were a bit disappointed that he didn’t perform better in some events, while others thought he performed as expected. Ryan Fowler from The network project expect more from him.


Although his film remains one of the most impressive of all class pass-catchers, Treylon BurkThe lack of, well, anything dynamic to hang your hat on in Indianapolis presents a litany of issues that teams will 100% factor into his profile. With substandard numbers posted in blast drills like green and wide, while his 4.55 times 40-225 pounds will do more than play, his limits as a pure athlete on the outside will lift problems for teams as they try to project where its most immediate success will be on Sunday.

Regardless of what you think or not of Treylon Burks, he remains an intriguing choice for the Dallas Cowboys at No. 24. Pairing him with CeeDee Lamb, and perhaps Michael Gallup if he is indeed re-signed, would give Dak Prescott three big power receivers in the passing game, all of whom are excellent red-zone threats.

As exciting as the former Arkansas WR pick for the Cowboys was, Dane Brugler’s 2nd round selection for them is also intriguing.

56. Dallas Cowboys – Chad Muma, LB, Wyoming

Chad Muma is the fifth linebacker drafted into Dane’s fictional Draft 3.0. Unlike Treylon Burks, the former Wyoming LB was one of the best at the Scouting Combine. His 4.63 40-yard dash, 27 bench press reps, 40-inch vertical jump, 129-inch spread jump, 7.06 3-taper drill, and 4.28 60 shuffle yards were all among the best in the 2022 LB draft class. He is also one of the best cover LBs.

Overall, if the Dallas Cowboys select WR Treylon Burks and LB Chad Muma with their first two draft picks in the 2022 NFL Draft, they should get two impact players early on. Depending on how the rest of their picks play out, it would be hard to complain if that’s how things actually play out.
