    Mosley has a pretty good history of predicting Cowboys' picks: In '08, Mosley nailed our picks of Jones and Jenkins (though in the wrong order); in '07 he was spot on with Anthony Spencer; in '06 he correctly picked Bobby Carpenter, and in 2004, he once again did the double with Ware and Spears. It's a good idea to trust what this man says in the weeks leading up to the draft.

    Interesting.


    I'd really like McCourty tbh, definately would be happy with that pick, or a CB within the first few rounds.


    Not sure how I feel about Odrick, Bowen is very underrated and has continually gotten better.

      If Taylor Mays is available at 27, I don't see us passing him.

      Dez Bryant won't be available at 27.

      Dallas won't draft Golden Tate.

      There... 3 prediction quotes from me. More to come, I'm sure.

        Dallas won't draft Golden Tate.
        Agreed

          I think Pouncey, Iupati, Bryant, and Earl Thomas are off the board by the 27th. It Comes down to Mays, N. Allen, McCourty, Tate, and Odrick for Dallas. As much as I'd like a more sexy pick, we go with Odrick. We still have 3 DEs in upcoming contract years and Jerry hasn't made up his mind with whether to resign any of them. If the salary cap is back in place for next year, drafting a rookie to a five year contract is a much cheaper alternative to paying out big money for a veteran. Jerry is also very comfortable with the idea of drafting first round DE's.

          I'm not excited about the pick, because I don't see him as much better than Spears, but his motor, strength, and versatility would be useful.

          Jerry might wheel and deal in the second round to get either Burnett or Allen. Maybe trade a fourth rounder to move up 8 or so spots. Then he'll trade Spears to try and recoup that fourth round pick on the third day.

            I don't know if Jerry would actually trade up for Bryant. We're already going in this without a 5th rounder. I doubt we give up a 3rd/4th to move up a few spots in the 1st for Bryant.

            Maybe he would for Earl Thomas, but there hasn't been a lot of smoke building up around our interest in him.

            McCourty is the new name that has popped up this week in regards to our 1st rounder. I dunno how much I like late risers. Sometimes I think the scouts start to outthink their gut when they start moving guys high up thier boards this late in the process. The one thing that impresses me most about him is his quick feet. He has quick and sudden foot movement combined with excellent hips. Nice frame too. Mostly thought of as a 2nd rounder, but the combine and pro day really helped him. He's emerged as a legitimate 1st round candidate right now. I don't know how legit he is, but Rutgers has a nice recent track record with NFL prospects.

              I think Mays will go before 27. To be honest, I wouldn't be shocked if Al Davis took him at #8. DHB was nearly in the same boat, and Al took him over Crabtree and Maclin. I think some team will fall in love with his athleticism before the Cowboys get a chance to even think about him.

                I could see that as well. But for clarity sake, my quote was based on "if" Mays was still available at 27, then I think we would take above anyone else available.

                    Eh fine... then here's a wacky prediction...

                    Jerry trades up and selects Eric Berry.

                    Berry seems to be the name falling as of late, and several teams have been linked to moving up for him. Why not us?

                    I could see us trading up with the Browns at #7. Either way... I predict some team will trade up for Berry.

                      Well, it's the Draft Day Eve everybody! The time to put your chips down is right now.

                      With that said, I'm going to make my prediction (if we are picking at 27).

                      Any news leading up to the draft is 99.9% lie. Moving up for Earl Thomas? I have my doubts. Dez Bryant to Dallas hype machine... I don't buy it for a sec. Taylor Mays coming in for a private visit? Just a tease for a guy like me. Late riser like Devin McCourty? I have to admit... I'm thinking maybe. But I've finally nailed down my prediction.

                      From the day after the draft ended to now, I've done my fair share of homework on offensive tackles. I've debated the situation from every angle (very passionately, I must add). At first, Scott's mocks used to say that we wouldn't draft a Tackle because we invested so much in Flozell and Columbo recently. I was very aprehensive about that, and doubted that would be a reason to prevent us from taking a tackle. So at the start of the season, my guy at the position and #1 favorite draft prospect was Bryan Bulaga. Happy to say that today, he would still be my top OT choice.

                      THEN... all of a sudden Doug Free emerged and opened everybody's eyes. His story was a bright highlight of the season. All of a sudden he put to rest my arguments for wanting an OT. Regardless, I still kept a short list of Tackles. Among them... Bulaga, Davis, Campbell and Brown.

                      Bulaga and Davis were often thought of as out of reach type prospects, but they did have periods throughout the year where it was a possibility for them to reach us. Bulaga due to injury... Davis due to work ethic/character issues.

                      I jumped on the Campbell wagon without ever watching him, but just based off his freakish athleticism... then that came crashing down once I saw him play. Talk about total disaster! Weak base, poor technique... but the worse was when I saw him not even care about his QB after letting his assignment beat him for the sack. That moment ended it for me. I went from the bandwagon to public enemy #1.

                      Okung, I could never appreciate. Passing wise, he's great. Don't get me wrong. But for a guy that highly touted to not able to be a great run blocker... or even a decent run blocker... to me, that didn't warrant all his hype. So I never became a fan.

                      Trent Williams was a hot name for me in 2008-09. Wanted him to declare and all. But his failure this past season at LT put question marks in my mind. It was his fault Sam Bradford's career ended the way it did. As the season progressed, my liking for him continued to diminish.

                      The one guy who consistently rose up my board throughout the year has been non other than Charles Brown. He started off as a late 2nd round rated player in my book. I thought of him mostly as a great 2nd round option for us. But as the season went on, I began to like him more and more. Athleticism... check. Long arms... check. Strength: adequate... check. Strong base... check. Knee bend... check. Lateral agility... check. Pass blocking... check. Run blocking... check. Upside...check. Pro scheme... check. Soon he was my Top choice at one point at OT. The only question marks I had were... did he fit a Hudson Houck type lineman? I didn't think so at first... but then I thought... Doug Free doesn't either. So I still considered him as high as I did. I also questioned his speed off the snap, initial punch and mean streak, which are still concerns today. Not reasons to scratch him off the list or anything, but things I think need to be acknowledged.

                      I know you're going to say, but D, you've been bashing the selection of an OT. I know... I have been. I do believe Jerry thinks highly of Doug Free, but I'm not sure he's sold that Free is the permanent long term answer there. I think he could always revert to using Free as our swing tackle. Free has proven to be able to do an admirable job at that. He could consider Free the eventual replacement for Columbo as well.

                      So with that, I'm going to predict...

                      With the 27th pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select Charles Brown, Offensive Tackle, University of Southern California.

                          I'm gonna guess Nate Allen, but I don't think it will be at 27

                            This is a guy I like, and think he could develop into a very good LT, even if we went with Free at LT initially, Columbo at RT, and when Columbo is let go move Free back over and Charles in.


                            Still not sure I can buy it. Garrett, and Jerry both said they think Free is more of a LT, and they have faith, it doesn't seem like it's blowing smoke. I'd just be very surprised to see us take a LT before we even give him a chance. Then if Free steps in and does really well, we don't know if Charles Brown can play RT, and for all we know Brewster could be ready to play RT when Columbo is gone.


                            It's just tough to see it playing out that way, I'd be pretty shocked, but wouldn't be upset(just a little let down that we didn't address a position that really needed an upgrade and LT isn't one to me).

                              If we don't trade up for ET, I really hope we trade down. Unless of course somebody falls into our laps we don't expect.

                                Ugh, I'd be super pissed if we traded out of the 1st, and I had to wait an extra day for us to pick lol. I don't know if I like of not having a 1st round pick two years running, there will be some good players who fall to us I'm pretty sure.
