Mock drafts are split on Cowboys pick

The NFL draft is about 10 hours away or in the Cowboys' case maybe 11 hours away with the ninth pick of the first round. It seems after reviewing several mock drafts this morning, the Cowboys are projected to take an offensive lineman.

Here are the mock drafts:

Bryan Broadus, ESPN Dallas picks Anthony Castonzo, T, Boston College

Mel Kiper, ESPN, chooses Cameron Jordan, DE, Cal.

UPDATE: Mel has hedged his pick, saying he thinks the Cowboys will now take USC OT Tyron Smith.

Todd McShay, ESPN, selects J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin

Don Banks, SI, likes Tyron Smith, T, USC

Mike Maylock, NFL.com, also likes Tyron Smith, T, USC

(One note, Pat Kirwan, Steve Wyche and Bucky Brooks of NFL.com all picked Smith as well in their final mock drafts)

Rob Rang, NFLDraft Scout, projects Anthony Castonzo, T, Boston College

(Chad Reuter of NFLDraft Scout is picking Smith)

Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News picks Smith and Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram selects Castonzo. One note, you must be an ESPN Insider to read Kiper and McShay's mock drafts. Please check it out, it's worth the time and effort.
