How NFL.com analysts are projecting the first-round picks for the Dallas Cowboys in the 2013 NFL Draft:

Matt "Money" Smith

No. 18: Kenny Vaccaro, SS, Texas

As long as the Cowboys don't get in their own way, Vaccaro is a perfect match. Texas to Texas. It's a need and he's the best player available.

Charles Davis

No. 18: Kenny Vaccaro, SS, Texas

Vaccaro can do it all: run, cover and tackle. And now the former Longhorn gets to stay in state and shore up the back end of the Cowboys' defense.

Daniel Jeremiah

No. 18: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri

This decision could come down to two players: Richardson or D.J. Fluker. Richardson would be an ideal fit in defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin's scheme.
» Full mock draft

Bucky Brooks

No. 18: Kenny Vaccaro, SS, Texas

While the Cowboys could take an athletic defensive tackle to serve as an anchor for coordinator Monte Kiffin's new scheme, Vaccaro would be a sensible pick, based on the team's struggles at the position in recent years.

Akbar Gbajabiamila

No. 18: Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State

Jerry Jones made a clear statement that the Cowboys believe in Tony Romo with a mega-bucks extension, so the next logical move is to protect their investment. Watson, a former basketball player, has great footwork to dance with pass rushers.

Gil Brandt

No. 18: Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU

Mingo has quickness and great get-off. He is able to drop into space, though I do think his best position will be as a defensive end rushing the passer. He needs to develop a little more consistency.

Charley Casserly

No. 18: Chance Warmack, G, Alabama

Warmack provides a boost for Dallas in both the running and passing games, helping Tony Romo.
» Full mock draft

Josh Norris

No. 18: Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina

Buzz is building that Cooper is being considered as a guard and a center. He would improve either spot for the Cowboys.
