3) WR, while not as deep as last years, still has about 5-7 guys that could be drafted in Round 1 (although 4 is more likely)
4) This is an excellent class for LB's (3-5 1st Rounders)
5) There are probably 4-6 1st Round DE's
I could go on. The weakest position this year seems to only be DT. That is only due to the lack of underclassmen (which is very shocking when examing how many have come out early the last couple of years).
well you could go on but you be even more wrong.
this is one of the worst drafts in recent memory....
RBs, Benson is the only guy worth a high first round pick and he certainly fails to electrify, after that you got Cadillac and Ronnie Brown possibly going very late in the first...then....Morency, Barber...all distant 2nd rounders. This year's class is much worse than last year's RB class IMO.
CB is probably the strongest position in this draft with Rolle, Jackson, Webster, and Rogers could all justifiably go in round 1.
There are two WRs in this draft....Braylon and Mike Williams...M Clayton could go late in the first and you got a few second and third round guys.
There may be 4-6 DEs go in the first this year but all fail to impress. Probably the most impressive is Pollack and he certainly isn't an 8-12 sack guy in the NFL.
There are no QBs in this draft. Rogers will go high, I wouldn't want him. Alex Smith is the most intriguing....sad.
No first round caliber DTs at all. Hawthorn may go late in the first to someone who will overpay for him.
There is one first round LB, DJ and the rest are second rounders.
There are 3-4 legit first round OTs, probably the second deepest position in the draft IMO.
The fact is that this was going to be an average draft IFFFFFFF all the guys that could've declared would've. As it stands, almost all of them decided to stay in school.
As far as the Cowboys go...where we are drafting and what we need....the list of guys I would consider drafting with our two firsts is very short. If none are available, i'd trade down (and I really hate trading down).
pick 1a: DJ, MW, Braylon, Rolle
pick 1b: Jamaal Brown, Carlos Rogers, Marlin Jackson, Mark Clayton, David Pollack
