Laurent Robinson | WR
Had Romo's trust more then any other WR. Dallas will have to pay.
Anthony Spencer | OLB
Not the sack artist we wanted but the staff loves him and his role is to often drop into coverage. Another victim of poor DB play as Rob Ryan could not dial up many of the packages he wanted.
Tony Fiametta | FB
Plain and simple the running game improved when he was on the field
Clifton Geathers | DE
Developmental project that is really coming along and the Cowboys like. Will be brought back.
Jeremy Parnell | OT
Cowboys love his versatility and athletic ability. Will likely win the swing OT position in camp.
Terrence Newman | CB
He is done, the struggles are well documented. His money will be put to good use.
Kyle Kosier | OG
Sad to see him go, under rated OL but age and injury have caught up
David Buehler | K
It's finally time Jerry and Jason get over their man crush, we need the roster room
Kenyon Coleman | DE
Thanks for coming back for a tour, never delivered.
Ben Grubbs | OG | Baltimore (27)
Option B to Carl Nicks, 1 year older and cheaper yet just as productive.
Tyvon Branch | SS | Oakland (25)
Not a name being tossed around alot but he's young and upcoming. Cowboys need someone who can call out coverages, Branch has excelled in that roll at Oakland. Great in the box Safety who can match up with TE's. Not going to pick off a lot of balls but will open up possibilities for Rob.
D'Qwell Jackson | ILB | Cleveland (28)
He won't be cheap but Jerry says he will spend his money and Jackson is one of the most under rated ILB's in the game. Rob has expressed how much he admires his play and with two staff members from the Browns who Jackson has stated he has admiration for perhaps it's a reunion in the making. Also give Bruce Carter another year to get his feet under him.
Shaun Hill | QB | SF (32)
Kitna is done, Cowboys need a vet QB. Hill has proven he can handle it short term.
Other Roster Moves:
Doug Free Moves from LT to RT
Jay Ratliff Moves from DT to DE
RD 1 #14:
Janoris Jenkins | CB | North Alabama
His troubles are well documented and the interview that never happened at the Senior Bowl was not by mistake. The Cowboys have their eye's on CB's and I would not be surprised to see 2 come out of this class. DeCastro remains my favorite pick at 14 but there is reason to believe he won't get past the Panthers.
RD 2 #45:
Kelechi Osemele | OG | Iowa St
Tenacity and attitude along with the skills to be a staple along the OL is exactly what needs injected into this OL and it's exactly what Kelechi brings. Don't let the fact that his name is not mentioned along with DeCastro and Glenn fool ya. He is every bit as ready to make a difference.
RD 3 #83
Jayron Hosley | CB | Virginia Tech
The 2nd shot at CB come sin Round 3 and while some will have issues with Dallas taking two CB's so early it seems not only Rob Ryan see's the issue needs fixed once and for all so does Jerry and Jason. Hosley can not only start at CB but fills a need in the return game.
RD 4 #114
Bruce Irvin | OLB | West Virginia
For one reason or another Irvin's stock has taken a hit over the last few weeks but the fact remains he can get after the QB and the Cowboys need depth.
RD 5 #145
Akiem Hicks | NT | Regina
One of the most athletic big guys in the draft and could be used a lot like Ryan used Shaun Rogers in Cleveland minus the bad attitude and tendency to get lazy.
RD 6 #176
Chase Ford | TE | Miami(FL)
It's a weak TE class and Ford may be picked higher then he warrants but he is one of the most atheltic and under rated TE's in this class. Bennett has seen his last days in Dallas and the Cowboys love to draft TE's but will they wait this long to grab one? Don't blink, he looks like a young Jason Witten on the field.
RD 6 #Comp
Devon Wylie | WR | Fresno St
Yes my desire for a "Wes Welker" has reached an all time high and Fresno St is about to to produce another one. Outside of size, precise route running, big play ability, sure hands and return ability the only difference here is......well there is none. Expect this pick to stay a staple in my mock.
RD 7 #207
Foswhitt Whittaker | RB/KR/PR | Texas
What do you look for in a 7th round pick? Someone who can contribute in any aspect and make your team better. Whittaker who is an excellent returner, a willing coverage guy, has good hands, a leader, a locker room favorite, coaches dream and under rated back fits that mold.
