The second round of the 2010 SB Nation NFL Mock Draft rolls along. We're having each SB Nation blogger make selections for their respective teams. Rafael Vela, a blogger at SB Nation's Dallas Cowboys blog, Blogging the Boys, checks in to make the No. 59 overall selection in this year's mock. Take it away!
With the No. 59 overall pick in the 2010 SB Nation NFL Mock Draft, the Dallas Cowboys have selected Arrelious Benn, WR, Illinois
Rafael says: Cowboys fans who play fantasy ball have coveted Anquan Boldin for years and here, at pick 59, the Cowboys land the receiver in this year's rookie crop most often compared to Boldin.
Mocking Dan reacts: This is a very good choice, for several reasons. 1) It would end Dallas' long-suffering relationship with Roy Williams. 2) It would give the team a playmaker opposite Miles Austin and open the middle of the field even more for Jason Witten. 3) He wouldn't be as expensive as Boldin.
Make no mistake, Benn has a chance to be a stud receiver. He only wasn't in 2009 because Juice Williams continued to act like a quarterback at Illinois. Also, props to Rafael for spelling Arrelious correctly. Do it with me folks: A-R-R-E-L-I-O-U-S. Yay! You spelled Arrelious!
Mocking the Draft's Top 5 remaining prospects: 1 - Rob Gronkowski/TE/Arizona, 2 - Brandon Spikes/LB/Florida, 3 - Aaron Hernandez, TE, Florida, 4 - Toby Gerhart/RB/Stanford, 5 - Brandon LaFell/WR/LSU
