I like Cooper also, did not realize how small he is at least in mass, my understanding is he loses about 10lbs each season and plays under 300lb near the end. Still love his attitude and style.
Would love to put a safety up but I have some hope for Johnson and the Achilles tendon of you know who so I left it short(I know it sounds like I am whistling in the dark).
I think with the firing of Ryan that we need to adjust the focus from the Oline to probably picking the best DT or DE with round one. At our tier it might be Johnathan Hankins from Ohio State which would be top of the list at 18, then maybe Jesse Williams from Alabama or Johnathan Jenkins Georgia both of whom I thought would last into the second round.
At DE Ezekiel Ansah plays in a 3-4 defense that uses a 2-gap system and he does an excellent job right now with limited training and I think a 4-3 system will not pose any additional burden on his talent which is immense. Texas has two guys to look at on the DE position Jeffcoat (injury 3rd Rd) and Alex Okafor who is probably going in the first rd. Sam Montgomery has the talent but is not the RKG for Jason Garrett.
Wow we should hope for some slippage in this draft at the DE and DT positions and then start filling in the Oline. Sounds like Barrett Jones will fall with the Liszfranc injury going public and his doubtful status for the combine(The foot cannot be allowed to bear weight for a minimum of 6 weeks) makes training camp probably limited.
I am also starting to really like the QB from Michigan wow but as a WR/ST returner he really is something to watch.
