You can't ignore this guy's potential.
4.32 in the 40-yard dash
… 2.48 20-yard dash … 1.46 10-yard dash … Bench pressed 225 pounds 15 times … 4.07 20-yard shuttle … 7.1 three-cone drill … 41½-inch vertical jump
He is a big corner, which Jerruh prefers.

The points don't add up. Pick 22 is worth 780 points, and pick 27 is worth 680 points (100 point difference). The Saints 2007 3rd is worth 136 points. I am sure we all would like to get more than next year's 3rd, but that is all the delta is worth. Dallas will have to trade out of the 1st round in order to get another 1st day pick this year, IMO.

I think Hall & Revis are off the board by the #22 pick. That leaves Houston or Ross as the only 2 potential 1st round CB's on the board. Both guys have enough questionmarks around them to question the value at #22. Plus, Dallas has 2 very well paid 1st rounders starting at DB already. By the 2nd round pick, there are a cluster of guys projected here who are short, slow, lazy, or have character issues. If I thought Ross was a lock to replace Henry, then I wouldn't have an issue taking him here... but, I don't.
He gives up as many big plays as he makes.
Hey, I don't necessicerily like all of these picks... but I think if you look at the way this draft is likely to unfold, then guys like Meachem, Ginn, Revis, Branch, Willis, Nelson, etc will be gone. Dallas will have to consider the value that is likely to be available with each of their picks, which means CB slides down the list.
