I think that may end up being the pick if he has a good combine

Once again, I say that we should be agressive in FA, grab Steinbach or Dockery and Ken Hamlin and then go WR in the first.

I agree. It would be hard to get top name Fa's with us needing to resign columbo and pick up bonuses on players

I would rather have houston or hall instead of ross. i am not saying ross is bad though. i watched houston shut Dwayne Jarrett down though and i was shocked...anyone else see him at the combine he is ripped! and was 5-10 188

I feel as though Ross is more of a complete player at corner than basically any other corner in the draft at this point, regardless of his combine. I feel that there will also be absolutely no pick that we could make in Round 1 for a WR that wouldn't be viewed as a reach, it's just realistically not gonna happen.

What are you talking about!? Dwayne Bowe, Dwayne Jarrett, Robert Meachem all would not be reaches. i feel as if we go corner but you can't honestly say those guys are a reach at 22.

I don't see how he could be more complete either...he had 1 good year and is 25...he is fully matured and that helps...houston, hall, revis are all really good cover corners

02-25-2007, 08:00 PM
My Big Board for top picks for 22 is like this (Only guys likely to be there)

1. Leon Hall
2. Robert Meachem
3. Aaron Ross

You all forget that we run the 3-4 and Chris Houston would be nothing more then a nickle guy in our D

In the 3-4 you have ot have taller Corners who are more physical(Or the good 3-4 teams do and so do we lately)

M.O.T.H.
02-25-2007, 08:00 PM
If and once again I say if... The Hawks let Hamlin go... He is gonna want near top dollar, he's coming off of another big year. Heard the 49ers are interested, we dont have the money to get into a bidding war with them, especially for a 2nd/3rd tier safety. That being said I do like em. (insert smiley face)

Aaron Ross > Leon Hall

Agreed. I like the length and play of ross much more then Hall. Plus a he's a decent kick returner.

But I'm still not sold on the idea of CB in the 1st. Maybe it's because I really don't see Henry at FS as others do. Reggie Nelson or trade down are my preferred options.

that doesn't even make sense where did you learn something like that...terrence newman is 5-11 and houston is 5-10...Houston is a very physical corner iv'e seen him in quite a few games...if he could dominate 6-5 Dwayne jarrett he'll be fine

The difference is...WR's can beat jams in the pro's. Don't get my wrong...I think Houston is a great cb...but your basing his ranking on a 2 min clip that mayock broke down at the combine doesn't make you an expert.

He's not very physical and needs to get stronger, he's going to have a lot of miss tackles. He doesn't have a lot of starting experience. And i doubt he'll play safty in the NFL.

During his NFL Combine interview, Florida State LB Lawrence Timmons said he spoke with the Dallas Cowboys.

During his NFL Combine interview, Georgia DE Charles Johnson said he talked with the Dallas Cowboys. He was told by the team that he would work at outside linebacker.

During his NFL Combine interview, Central Michigan DE Dan Bazuin said the Dallas Cowboys talked to him and asked if he could play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defensive scheme.

The Dallas Cowboys have expressed interest in NFL draft prospect WR Aundrae Allison (East Carolina).

per kffl.com

I wonder if this means carp is to move inside. The is surely interesting to see we are targetting a OLB at 22. I would still say Moss and Spencer our are best bet at 22 if we are looking for a rush backer. I still like Woodley in the second.

"Does not have a ton of starting experience...Is not very physical and needs to get stronger..."

Have any original Ideas?

He's a CB, who said he's going to play saftey? And I guess starting expierence didn't hinder him from winning the Jim Thorpe award. And name one corner that started all 4-5 years while in college. And he's 6'1 192, which is bigger then Terrence. And he recorded 80 tackles last year, not bad for a CB.

If they go 3-4 OLB somewhere early, don't you think a Abiamiri, Woodley late two or Jacob Ford late 3 makes more sense? Maybe even a Tank late 2 if we go D in the pits?

The late 1 (based on the combine) could land us in our lap a talent like Levi Brown, Meachem, or Marshawn Lynch. Someone on Offense if you ask me.

The late 2 if not D maybe a Ramirez or Blalock or Sears, depending on FA. Maybe even a Sidney Rice, Tony Hunt or Bush?

Either way I think we go O 2 of the first 3 unless a stud falls. If we go OLB try to get the best athlete and let him play ST and develop. We have so many OLB.

Thoughts?

If the Cowboys draft an OLB props to them. Phillips wants to make a sexy pick and nothing is more sexier than a pass rushing hard core OLB... He's probably trying to find a guy like Shawne Merriman to play opposite of Ware... Knowing full well that Ellis is old and Carpenter is the future at ILB.

Where we are picking, I'd love to grab a big OLB. Crowder really stuck out to me from the Combine.

He doesn't have nearly the speed I like for an OLB. Plus he already has a year under his belt learning the position.

jdnoyes
02-26-2007, 04:42 PM
Parcells made it pretty clear that Carp's future was inside, and i'm guessing he passed on to Wade that he felt he was a much better fit there as well. Wade has also been quoted as saying his starting OLB's at this point are Ware and Ellis. I think Carp would may a great 3 down inside guy. Could you imagine Ware coming from one edge and say a Jarvis Moss from the other. Pass rush tends to make average secondaries look good, bring it on. Who's to say Carp can't be Wade's Donnie Edwards.

TNewFan41
02-26-2007, 04:46 PM
D-Unit, Carp ran a 4.58, that is plenty fast, I like him at OLB, but w/e, it will help our inside coverage greatly.

And on a seperate note, in his interview on NFL Network, Adrian Peterson said if he could play for any team he would pay for the Cowboys. I know we have no shot, but I love the kid and if we traded up for him I would run down the street naked.

JJJ888
02-26-2007, 04:54 PM
I'm not ready to spend another first round pick on a linebacker...I still like Carpenter outside, and Ellis should be back...and I feel like James and Ayodele are good inside. We could use a little depth, but I think those guys are still solid starters.

I might be willing to spend a 3rd or 4th round pick on a pass-rusher, however. Or a guy like Tully Banta-Cain might be intriguing.

02-26-2007, 05:12 PM
I would keep an eye out for Dan Bazuin as a pass rushing option, possibly in the third round.

TNewFan41
02-26-2007, 05:17 PM
I agree with JJJ888, our starting 4 LBs are all 27 or under, and we have 2 back to back first rounders. Every position isn't linebacker. If we even spend a 2nd rounder on a LB I will be upset, that is just to much money in one spt.

And don't say that crap that you can't have to many 3-4 LBs, umm yes you can.

if we got a charles johnson i'd be happy as long as all the top DB's are gone, i want them to take the best player available from our needs DB,OLB,WR,O-line as long if it ain't r.1. ellis might not be 100% he's gonna be 31 or 32 and coming off a torn ACL he might not ever play the same again...If carp can replace Ayodele inside and we get a good R.1 guy to play outside whats wrong with that? i am not encouraging it by the way just stating if we did it would make sense

Well, we did interview him, so that put it in the realm of possibility. A lot of the guys we've interviewed have been OLB prospects in the range of 270 pounds. The size of Merriman.

...and btw Balaskonis, Carp ran a 4.67 not a 4.58...

TNewFan41
02-26-2007, 06:53 PM

Explain the Alama-Francis fit.

I would attribute most of out pass-rushing deficiencies to our down lineman. Though they are stout against the run, they get absolutely no pass rush. And I'm aware of the argument that there job is to facilitate the line and hold up the tackles and guards, but they have to be able to rush the QB with some consistently once and awhile, and they just don't do that. Aside from Hatcher and Coleman, whose shown the ability to get some pressure, Canty, Spears and Ratliff seem to just get eaten up. You've said yourself we need to upgrade our down lineman, either it be a NT or DE, and since I'm not sold at all on Tank, Alama-Francis would be the next best thing. He has decent, but not great size for the 3-4 DE, 6-5 285lb (unaware of his measurements at the combine by the way), but it is more then adequate to play there. Put that with with good speed, we have our Luis Castillo. Plus our D-lineman rotation will be really deep with him added.

The idea is a decent one. I think with the scheme Phillips will bring that our DEs will have more opportunity to attack the quarterback. As far as upgrading our DL, yeah, I wanted Corey Redding, but I didn't think Detroit would Franchise him. I don't think the solution is adding more youth. Marcus Spears is our Castillo. He's still got lots of potential. I think we need a complementary veteran player at this point. Between Spears, Canty and Hatcher... youth is being served. Spending another high draft pick on DE would be overkill. Someone would be left out and we would've flooded the position with too much youth.
In addition, Alama-Francis is more of a run stuffer than a pass rusher. Don't let his measurables fool you. The real pass rusher from Hawaii is Mel Purcell. Ikaika is getting all this hype because he has these ideal measurables, but if I could put one of them on my team it would be Purcell. He's a maniac.

The idea is a decent one. I think with the scheme Phillips will bring that our DEs will have more opportunity to attack the quarterback. As far as upgrading our DL, yeah, I wanted Corey Redding, but I didn't think Detroit would Franchise him. I don't think the solution is adding more youth. Marcus Spears is our Castillo. He's still got lots of potential. I think we need a complementary veteran player at this point. Between Spears, Canty and Hatcher... youth is being served. Spending another high draft pick on DE would be overkill. Someone would be left out and we would've flooded the position with too much youth.
In addition, Alama-Francis is more of a run stuffer than a pass rusher. Don't let his measurables fool you. The real pass rusher from Hawaii is Mel Purcell. Ikaika is getting all this hype because he has these ideal measurables, but if I could put one of them on my team it would be Purcell. He's a maniac. He reminds me of Shawne Merriman... and I say that with a straight face.

I'll take your word for it since your the Hawaii guy here. But do you really suggest we spend another high pick on a OLB(Moss,Spencer, etc.)? Adalius Thomas does sound good though.

Any FA signings taken into consideration?

One Guard -- Stud. That is it.

We would carry 9 OL. Levi, McQuistan, Colombo, Flo, Kosier, Gurode, Johnson, Proctor + 1 Guard FA.

Johnson, Proctor, Gurode, Kosier + FA will battle for Center and Guards in 2007.

Colmbo, McQuistan, Brown and Flo battle for Tackle.

1 OL too many for active roster but ..... 1 injury (likely) solves that problem. Be nice if we could trade Johnson before we lose him to FA

assuming we sign ken hamlin for f safety. here are my selections for the cowboys. First 3 rounds

Round 1. Jarvis Moss. Defensive End that brings 4.7 speed to the pass rush. Plays both 4-3 and 3-4 defenses.

Round 2. Aaron Rouse. Safety/outside Linebacker. He runs 4.52 speed. He can play the safety position and outside linebacker position. The cowboys can covert him to outside linebacker because of his speed and aggresiveness.

Round 3. Eric Wright. Cornerback. He runs 4.36. He is a little raw but working with the vetern corners. this kid can be groomed.

Someone's a tad dilluisional. Eric Wright is a likely late 1st early 2nd round pick. There's a better chance of Jesus returning to earth , than Wright lasting til the late 3rd.

Definately not the standard. Just throwing out an example. I think that there are guys we bring in that we truly have an interest in and then make our final decisions from those meetings... and then I think there are players we scatter in whom we bring in just for the mere appearance that we are showing interest in to fool other teams into thinking things.... you know... the draft game.

***Wrong Thread

I'm very high on Craig Buster Davis. We can pick him in the second and he can be the future replacement for Glenn. He won't have to start for all of his rookie year, but he can contribute on returns from the first day. The guy we have at roster (Miles, Hurd, Crayton) are all possesion receivers. Austin has the greatest upside to be more, but Davis is a deep threat with very good all-around receiving abilities.
So in the first round I would go CB or OL. But maybe the best idea is to trade down in the early second, pick a future pick, and draft Blalock and a WR/CB with the other second round.
What do you think of this scenario?
