2nd(Pick 55) Rashad Johnson FS-Alabama
I think Robiskie and Delmas will be gone before we pick and there's still a legit safety on the board that I actually like a little better for this team. I think we trade back 4 spots and pick up a late 4th in the process. They are really interested in Rashad and I think could be a great fit for this team. Smartest safety in the draft and reminds me of Ed Reed. He could still be had at that pick and we pick up another one.
3rd(Pick 69)Lawrence Sidbury-OLB-Richmond [View Full Quote]One of my favs in this years draft. With Ellis getting up there in age and Spencer not quite ready yet I think he fits perfect. You can never have enough pass rushers in a 3-4 and he'll provide depth and youth to the team. Spencer,Ware and Sidbury will reak havoc for many years to come. I love his spin move and think he can have success with it just like Dwight Freeney. He could split time with Spencer and spell Ware if needed. I really hope we get this guy.
4th (Pick 101)Jason Phillips-ILB TCU
Starting with the first pick in the 2nd day is a huge advantage and I believe Jason will slip out of the 3rd. We are really interested in him and he's a local boy. A natural leader and reminds me alot of Zach Thomas. He could backup Brooking and play third downs and eventually become a starter with Bradie. I'm tired of the 34 year old LB brought in here. We need to get young at that position.
4th (Pick 108) Antione Caldwell-C/OG Alabama
Trading with the Dolphins our 4th (#117) our 6th(#197) 7th(#227) and Greg Ellis we aquire pick 108. I think he's one of the most versitile lineman in the draft. His best position is C but can play all C or OG. I don't buy Proctor still being on this team so he's cut and Caldwell is molded for the future. Could play behind Gurode 2 years and eventually take over if needed. Provides solid depth and helped anchor that great Alabama O-line.
4th (Pick 112) Mike Thomas-WR Arizona
Using the late 4th rounder we got from trading down for Rashad we select Mike Thomas. He's a little burner that will fall into our lap because of his size. If he was 6 feet tall he would be a 2nd rounder. Great athlete and the solution to our punt return problems. Could easily beat out Crayton for the slot spot during TC and be there for 10+ years. His speed will allow our offense to be alot faster and dynamic.
5th(Pick 156)Sebastian Vollmer-T-Houston
All I've heard the last couple days is that the Cowboys really like this guy and met with him several times. At 6"8 he is a mammoth and athletic with a 39 inch vertical. This may be the biggest steal of the draft because I watched some tape on him and he's quick and strong. He drops this far because he's a little raw and will need at least a year to devolop with the right coaching. I could easily see him beat out Flo in 2010.
Traded for future 4th in 2010
5th (comp pick) Stephen Mcgee-QB- Texas A&M
The Cowboys are in love with this guy and fits Jerry's wants. Local boy and can run some wildcat. He also can develop into a very good QB in a few years because of his skill set. Very nice arm, very agile but his awareness is questionable along with his decision making. Played with Martellus and just a great guy. We need to become a QB factory and stop signing 38 year olds at that position.
6th(comp pick) Rashon Harris-DT/DE-Oregon
Cowboys have interest in him and I think could be a great fit on this team. Spears and Bowen are both FA's next year and Harris could provide some depth. He can play DE or DT to help spell Rat along with maybe Saivii. Solid against the run and can provide some needed pass rush.
7th(Pick 210) Bruce Johnson-CB-The U!
I like this guy alot and with essentially a late 6th he'll still be there. Not the best corner in the draft but in 2 years could become elite. He's got the speed and aggressiveness but sometimes he opens his hips to much but that can be worked on. Provides solid depth behind Newman,Jenkins,Scandrick and maybe Ball. He's got the swagger to play the position.
dont we have two 7s.
I like this mock for the most part....I would rather have Roy Miller to back up Ratliff. Also, I want to draft 2 CBs....Brice McCain and that kid from Rutgers.
I know you traded down in the 2nd to get a 4th.....We trade down with our 3rd and add another 4th
