2012 Dallas Cowboys Draft: A New Name is Dontari Poe
Now that the Cowboys have signed several free agents, picking a corner or a safety is no longer imperative. Several sites have listed a bunch of new names.

LB Whitney Mercilus, Illinois
S Mark Barron, Alabama
DE Quinton Coples, North Carolina
LB Melvin Ingram, South Carolina

One name that did not show up on either list was Memphis DT Dontari Poe, who does show up Football Future’s mock draft.
14. Dallas – Dontari Poe, NT, Memphis
Poe is the type of nose tackle teams can build an entire defense around. He has a truly rare athleticism and size combination, and brings the versatility to play on the nose but also on the edge as a 5 tech.
Here is a video of Poe at the 2012 NFL Combine.
