Laurent Robinson | WR
Had Romo's trust more then any other WR. Dallas will have to pay.
Anthony Spencer | OLB
Not the sack artist we wanted but the staff loves him and his role is to often drop into coverage. Another victim of poor DB play as Rob Ryan could not dial up many of the packages he wanted.
Tony Fiametta | FB
Plain and simple the running game improved when he was on the field
Montrae Holland | OG
Will be brought back and allowed to fight for his spot on the roster.
Clifton Geathers | DE
Developmental project that is really coming along and the Cowboys like. Will be brought back.
Jeremy Parnell | OT
Cowboys love his versatility and athletic ability. Will likely win the swing OT position in camp.
Terrence Newman | CB
He is done, the struggles are well documented. His money will be put to good use.
Kyle Kosier | OG
Sad to see him go, under rated OL but age and injury have caught up
David Buehler | K
It's finally time Jerry and Jason get over their man crush, we need the roster room
Kenyon Coleman | DE
Thanks for coming back for a tour, never delivered.
Stephen McGee | QB
Off season opportunities will spell the end for McGee. Career 2nd string QB.
Ben Grubbs | OG | Baltimore (27)
Option B to Carl Nicks, 1 year older and cheaper yet just as productive.
Tyvon Branch | SS | Oakland (25)
Not a name being tossed around alot but he's young and upcoming. Cowboys need someone who can call out coverages, Branch has excelled in that roll at Oakland. Great in the box Safety who can match up with TE's. Not going to pick off a lot of balls but will open up possibilities for Rob.
Dan Connor | ILB | Carolina (26)
Sean Lee's one time room mate and good friend comes over for depth. Should come with a friendly price tag and showed flashes of the potential people expected when given time in 2010.
Ladarius Webb | CB | Baltimore (26)
Another DB not getting a lot of press in FA talk but he's young and really coming into his own. 5 Picks and 20 PD's last season. Not afraid to stick his neck on the line in the run game and is a threat to take it back when he gets his hand on the ball. Another small school prospect who took a few years to grow into the game and may be peeking.
Shaun Hill | QB | SF (32)
Kitna is done, Cowboys need a vet QB. Hill has proven he can handle it short term.
Other Roster Moves:
Doug Free Moves from LT to RT
Jay Ratliff Moves from DT to DE
RD 1 #14:
David DeCastro | OG | Stanford
The signing of either Nicks or Grubbs hardly means the overhaul on the OL is done. DeCastro is one of handful of prospects that is NFL ready from the time his name is announced.
RD 2 #45:
Brandon Boykin | CB | Georgia
Dynamic in every aspect of his game be it playing CB, Returner or lining up at receiver on the offensive side of the ball. This kid is purely a play maker.
RD 3 #83
LaMichael James | RB | Oregon
Round 3 and Round 4 is where Dallas loves to take their shots on dropping/injured prospects who once carried a much higher grade. This is also where they like to stack depth at RB and TE. Does anyone fit the bill better then LaMichael James?
RD 4 #114
Shea McClellin | OLB | Boise St
One of the most under rated and under valued hybrid pass rushers in this draft. Reminds me so much of a larger Sean Lee. Pure football blood, motor and work ethic unmatched.
RD 5 #145
Chandler Harnish | QB | Northern Illinois
Nations top rushing QB, has all the skills but needs some development. Mentally ready for the NFL but needs work. Has a recording 156.14 in passing efficiency fr his career.
RD 6 #176
Nicolas Jean-Baptiste | NT | Baylor
Big man (6'2', 335) is just not big but athletic (5.01 40 in spring drills). With Rat moving to DE Dallas would look to add depth and size to NT. Has the wingspan to challenge any OC or OG (77 5/8). Former walk on who is a weight room junkie.
RD 6 #Comp
George Bryan | TE | NC State
Weak TE class and Bennett will need replaced. Not the most athletic TE in this class but is efficient blocker and has great size (6'5" 265). Ranks 4th among active players in the ACC in TD's
RD 7 #207
Jerry Franklin | ILB | Arkansas
ILB depth is desperately needed and Franklin will provide solid depth and flexibility as well as a instant ST boost. 6th in SEC in tackles this season with 10 tackles for a loss. Not going to dominate in any aspect of the game but solid in all of them. Type of player every team needs.
