Default Gil Brandt's top 100 pre-Combine

http://www.nfl.com/combine/story/090...ing-to-combine

Gil has very close contacts within the Cowboys organization and I strongly suspect this is Dallas's top 100 pre-combine or even earlier.
It makes sense for the Cowboys to have Blackmon at #13 since they don't have a need at the position but it could also raise some flags about how fast they think he will run.

You logic is flawed... if that was the case why would Reiff and Tannehill be so high? Jeffery in the top 20 wouldnt make any since using the same logic of you pushing Blackmon down.

Read the whole post, Blackmon could also be all about his expected 40 time, maybe he will actually drop back to the #13 slot after he runs his 40..

but he hasnt run.... so why has he already been pushed down? and in the same regards why would Jeffery be so high? He also has questions about speed?

Maybe that is how the Cowboys view both of them. Just because it varies from the expected doesn't make it wrong.

Brandt, using the Dallas Draft Board regularily get 28/29 correct 1st rounders, both Blackmon and Jeffery's need their pro day to establish where they rank, till then it is a complete guessing game no matter what people project.

So the basis of your thought process is Gil Brandt used to scout with the Cowboys... he occasionally gets the pick right when he mocks and the Cowboys are stocked at WR/ Blackmon might run slow so #13 makes sense on a DC Big Board. SMH!

A lot of Final Mocks closely mirror what really happens at the draft because people have time to observe needs..free agency..combine..prodays etc. Pull up the last 28/29 he has right becuase I can tell you although he is in the ball park he is hit or miss on the final results.

No one in their right mind... no matter how close are going to give up their entire big board to an analyist who post on the NFL WEBSITE!

In the top 25 there are 5 WR.... and Zach Brown is rated #23 as a LB that wouldnt even fit into the Cowboys 3-4 scheme. Meanwhile positions of need like 5tech, C, G,OLB are pushed down on the rankings.... Cordy #29, Branch #31, Cox #38, Konz #51,.

Keep dreaming Cowboys Insider.

Brandt has plenty of connections throughout the league. The thought that we are looking at the Cowboys' board, even at this early stage, doesn't withstand the rigors of logic because the source would become unemployed moments after this list hit the web.

I am sure that's how he views them. That's fine, usually inside the draft room, the director of scouting and the scouts put together their boards. You may not agree as a scout, but side with the popular choice you lose.

Same with how the draft works, you may go around the room, and dislike the player on the board, while others like the guy. You may be right, but because others like the guy, he may be drafted. That's something Jim Garrett told me about the draft room. You view your games on a prospect and when you go around the room, you make it very specific. Given THESE 3 games, I saw this... and that.. and stick to your opinions even though others may question it and dislike it. He really is a great guy and knows more football than humanly possible.
