As the draft grows closer upon us on April 26th – 28th, The experts and gurus of the NFL are out in full force. The mock drafts and opinions are stacking and changing by the minute. And when the Dallas Cowboys finally hit the clock with the 14th overall pick that Thursday evening, Everyone that is a Cowboys fan will be waiting impatiently to see if that card is turned in, or if a trade made will be involved as the War Room just can’t find the value, and trades down with another team.
I have been studying a few so called draft experts mock predictions. Some seem to make alot of since, some seem to be pretty far fetched. Now of course it is possible Jerry Jones & Company may select some quality player they see in the starting lineup in a year or two. But in my opinion, when you are selecting in the 1st round, you are searching for an immediate starter that will make a remarkable impact on your team on Day 1.
I am still going to stick with my concept on this, The Detroit Lions has a proven player in Sammie Lee Hill, 25, who when given the opportunity, has provided pass rushing, and run stopping skills. At 6′-4″ 330 lbs., even though not in a 3-4 scheme, He shows more promise than an unproven Poe. And since the Lions only tendered Hill with a 4th round pick since he is a Restricted Free Agent, it is something to consider. Especially since the Boys have 2 4th round picks ( 113 & 135 overall) to play with.
