Thanks for the mock draft update. . . but that its still crazy. He has "outstanding blocking skills" and would be "just the right addition for the Cowboys' young defense
" That doesn't make sense.
This is the mock draft that I've been looking at for the last few years if ya'll would like another opinion. . . These guys really do their homework. . .
Here's a highlight:
10. Dallas Cowboys: Antrel Rolle, CB, Miami (FL)
After letting Mario Edwards leave as a free agent the team was relying on the essentially unproven and untested Pete Hunter to start opposite Terence Newman, but Hunter was lost for the season with an injury and that combined with Newman's drop-off in play has left Dallas in dire straights in pass defense, seemingly unable to cover anyone. While not an elite, shutdown corner prospect in the same mold as guys like Deion Sanders, Charles Woodson or Champ Bailey, Rolle is right there in the next group and could have a career similar to that of a guy like Chris McAlister. Adding another playmaker like Rolle would give Dallas one of the premier young secondaries in the league and if they choose they could even stick Rolle at free safety next to Roy Williams, which would be an impressive duo indeed. Finding this guy on the board when it is their turn to pick would have to be a dream scenario for the Cowboys. The other direction the team could go is the defensive line since they have major needs at both end as well as tackle so you certainly can't rule out names like Erasmus James, Travis Johnson of Florida St. and Rodrique Wright of Texas since they have little or nothing next to La'Roi Glover and Marcellus Wiley has been a major disappointment after being brought in as a free agent. One final option would be for Dallas to surprise and nab a premier wide receiver like Braylon Edwards since Keyshawn Johnson isn't much of a big play threat and Terry Glenn is getting up there in years. In the end though the decision to take Rolle if he is available would have to qualify as a no-brainer.
Playing for America's Team is the greatest because there's nothing like it. But at the same time, it brings a lot of different things – different personalities and different people evaluating you. ... You've got to go back just outworking people. Nobody's going to give us anything. We understand that, and we can't allow what's outside to interfere with what we do. - Jason Witten (1/29/2009, Dallas Morning News
