Cut: Conner, Free, Spears, Costa
S Jarius Byrd - Playmaking S needed. If Church or Matt Johnson turn it on, then Sensabaugh can be dealt or cut.
SLB Phillip Wheeler - One of the only playmakers on the Raiders, there Cap issues dictate that they can't resign him. Still 28 and durable.
DT Henry Melton - No brainer if Marinelli comes over. A 4 man DT rotation with Ratliff, Melton, Hatcher, and Lissemore would be pretty solid.
DE Matt Roth - veteran depth at DE
[View Full Quote]WR Devery Henderson - Henderson would push Austin and allow the Cowboys to cut him if he doesn't step up. Henderson would give Romo the stable secure route runner that he misses in Laurent Robinson.
1st Round - OG Jonathan Cooper - Immediate starter at right guard
2nd round - OT Lane Johnson - Immediate starter at right tackle.
3rd Round - DE Datone Jones - Becomes part of DE rotation with Ware, Crawford (swingman who can aslo line up at DT), Roth, and Kyle Wilber
4th Round - RB Mike Gillislee, replaces Felix Jones as backup RB. Tanner and Dunbar have just not proven they can be the main guy and Murray seems to have injury issues.
5th Round - MLB Jake Johnson - Backup lineback who could be a special teams standout.
6th Round - WR Josh Jarboe - Had some trouble in his past but a talented wideout who seems to have matured.
