My First Dallas Draft Of 2007
1. #27-Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas, 6-6, 280, 4.9. BP & Zim have been praying for a pass-rushing DE to come from Spears or Canty. Instead, he comes from the draft. Anderson had 13.5 sacks, 19.5 TFL, & 26 QB hurries going up against some of the best teams in the SEC. He had 3 sacks each against Tennessee & Wisconsin. With that kind of size & sack ability, we can't afford not to draft him. The biggest problem I forsee is Anderson racing up the board & out of the Cowboys' reach. If so, I would then go with Victor Abiamiri, DE, Notre Dame, 6-4, 275, 4.75, who had 8 sacks last season, & 11 this year.
2. #55-Justin Blalock, OT/OG, Texas, 6-4, 330, 5.25. With all of the excellent Jr. talent becoming eligible for the draft, OGs are usually the first to fall, (I hope!). Blalock is a solid technician with a mean streak & plays to the whistle.
3. #87-Manuel Ramirez, OG/OC, Texas Tech, 6-4, 340, 5.30. The biggest weakness by far on this team has been the interior of the offensive line. Time to remedy that. With a solid wall in front of him & better talent blowing open larger holes for the RBs, Tony Romo will be able to utilize his enormous talent. Ramirez has played almost every position on the OL & is a powerhouse. He is one of the strongest players in the draft, with a bench press of #550. He is one of the main reasons Tech's offense, once again, was right up there at the top of Div I College in production.
4. #119-J.D. Nelson, FS, Oregon, 5-11, 215, 4.50. Tremendous athlete with an incredible 44.5 vertical leap, great speed & power. Plays with intense passion every play with great anticipation. Good tackler & hard hitter. We need to keep grabbing FSs until the jury is not out on the one we have-Watkins.
5. #151-Joel Filani, WR, Texas Tech, 6-3, 222, 4.6. Not a burner, yet caught 90 passes for 1,300 yds. & 13 TDs. Combine that with last season, when Filani had 65, 1,007, & 8 TDs and you see consistently great production.
