    Brandon Meriweather...

    I think has top notch cover skills...and is very physical...but do you think we draft him despite him attitude?

    I'll bet anything the Cowboys won't draft him. Anything!

    I'm a big fan of Merriweather. I like the idea of trading down 6-8 spots and grabbing him with an additional 3rd rounder thrown in there.

    ok then...bills last year, with the cowboys a couple years back...san fransico in 04, detroit lions to get kevin jones...atlanta to get jenkins a couple years ago...all of them gave up early 2nd round picks to get late r.1 picks...so yes they do trade up when they see a playmaker they want despite their needs...and this is just in the last couple of years :)

    Ahhh, yeah John Wendling. His measurables are off the freaking charts. What's your opinion on where he goes Thule? I'm thinking late 2nd.

    MT...not gonna happen...why would a team in need of a whole new offense trade up and lose picks to land one player. It has to be a team with just a few needs that would move up to take a player to take them to the next level.

    I believe Eric Weddle is better pick than him. He can do FS, SS, CB, and PR.

    If we really want this FS/CB Tweener, trade down into early second. He will be there and he will be very good -- as long as he does not get arrested at night clubs throwing around bling bling.

    In fact, I believe three low-mid to late second rounders this year is better than the current 1/2 we have.

    Hey at this point who knows. He obviously has 1st round talent, behind Landry he's the best IMO. He's more complete than say a Nelson and his cover skills are exceptional. He performed well yesterday, some team may love this guy. He's had the off the field issues and the on the field but, those pale in comparison to say those issues Pacman had coming into the draft. I think he goes first round, if not early 2nd most definitely, IMO.

    Meriweather at 22 is not farfetched at all... honestly we wouldnt need to move. His stock is rising as I'm typing this.

    Something interesting... He is an exceptional nickel corner... He could be helpful in many ways, I'm sure Wade could find a plethera of ways in using him.

    I lost a ton of respect for Meriweather during the brawl with FIU. I don't really want him as a distraction when we have enough as it is, although I respect the talent he has.
