Chapman: in the nose-tackle
Some NFL teams build comprehensive draft boards, where they rank every eligible player. Many other teams, the Cowboys included, have short-boards, where they only have 120-150 players which fit their profiles. In this week's chat with the National Football Post's Wes Bunting, we're going to build a short-short board, with maybe 45-60 names or so to watch in the early rounds.
Cowboys Nation: A pre-draft dust storm blew through the Cowboys world last week. They brought in Boise State's Doug Martin for a visit. He's rated very highly. You have him 4th on your running back board. Others say he could be the first back taken after Trent Richardson.
The visit led to a lot of speculation about Felix Jones' status, since he's entering the last year of his deal. How does Martin stack up as a prospect?
