    So I got some trades, big whoop, wanna fight about it?

    Trade #27, 2011 1st, and 4th for #14-#16.

    14-16- Anthony Davis- OT- Rutgers- Flo and Columbo could go for all I care.

    Trade 2nd, 3rd and Martelleus for a late 1st early- 2nd and take- Mike Iupati - G/T- Idaho

    Trade 6th and 7th for 5th-
    Akoni- Usawaw- Owaka- CB/S/KR- Raw but good athlete w/ potential. He can contribute from day 1 on ST

    Noel Devine is going back to WVU, duh!

    Then bring in 10 UDFA kickers

    Sounds like we can sign a FA or two. So go get Nick Collins for safety help

    I like Davis and Iupati(sp?) but I don't see us trading away that much for two different players.

    Also Noel Devine is going back for his senior season, announced it this weekend.:cool:

    Since we can get some safety help via FA I would love to get the future of the OL in place. Free may be something, but after that were banking on just Brewster.

    What happens if were all set to make a run next year but like 3 of the OL fall apart?

    Look at the Jets, they suck, but a good OL covers it up.

    Imagine A.Davis and Iupati on the left side? We can have drives where we run 7 times for 80 yards and a TD w/ no passes.

    3 players I really like in the draft. I wouldn't be mad at that.

    By the way, since it's doubtful the NFL and players agree on a new deal in the next month, we are looking at the dreaded "Uncapped Season". If uncapped, Nick Collins will be a Restricted Free Agent. :(

    FIRST PRIORITY: RESIGN Miles Austin.

    K I know thats not in the draft, but i'd give up picks 1-7 to keep him, so im saying that here.


    Second:
    I would not be against this draft, but we are banking way to much on three players,what happens if both bust? We are ****ed for the next few years.

    All this stuff is confuse

    So GB gives him the chicken tender and thats it?

    In that case we might just be adding a CB/S depending on Ball.


    I guess, but its the draft. Id swing for the fences here since we churned the bottom pretty good last year.

    I like all of those players, but that's giving up a lot.

    Also, good luck getting Davis at 14-16...but I'd take him he I could.

    I'm not a fan of trading up in round 1 unless the player is just too good to pass up. I can't even remember the last time it worked for us unless it was Emmitt.

    We also moved up to get Anthony Spencer...up 10 spots from 36th to 26th.

    Dallas traded a second-round selection, its third-round selection, and its fifth-round selection (36th, 87th, and 159th overall, used to select Kevin Kolb, Stewart Bradley, and C.J. Gaddis, respectively) to Philadelphia for Philadelphia's first-round selection (26th overall, used to select Anthony Spencer).

    In the case of Mike Jenkins we gave up a 5 and 7.

    For Spencer we gave up a 2, 3 and 5, but we still had our 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7.

    In this trade up scenario we basically have no picks left in this draft, plus no one next year and no Bennett and Choice.

    That mock is a debacle.

    What happend to Choice?

    #27 would be lets say Baluga, our 4th could be a Boo Robinson.

    Ill take AD over those two and a future 1st in a weaker draft.

    You must have forgotten to log into your other account, you just said that.

    Heres a rough 53 to coincide w/ my draft that wont happen, but isnt crazy

    QB-3- Next
    RB-3- Next
    FB-1- Same old
    WR-5- Miles, RW, Crayton, Ogletree, Hurd - There might be a Jonny Knox type brought in that can return
    TE-3- Witt, Phillips, Hannah- I traded Marty
    LT- 2- Flo, Free - You can put Free in if Flo struggles and release Flo.
    LG- 2- Kosier, Brewster- See above
    C- 2- Gurode, Chris Spencer(FA)- We know a new C is coming
    RG-2- Leonard Davis, Iupati
    RT- 1 - Anthony Davis, *Free/Iupat

    I love that set up. Anthony Davis can play any G/T. Iupati can play G or RT, and Free is a swing T. You give Flo one more shot, but if he fails you have several options. Romo doesnt get killed, season not lost. Every spot has a young prospect pushing them.

    DE- 4 - Igor, Spears, Bowen, Hatcher - Realistically well probably bring someone else in

    NT-2- Rat, JR- That guy would be versatile.

    OLB-5- Ware, Spencer, Butler, B. Williams, Doc Oc
    ILB- 5- James, Brooking, Carp, Jwill, Hodge - Speed may be brought in
    CB- 5- Jenkins, Newman, Scandrick, Rod Hood(FA/KR), Akonu- Wskusaw, Ukowi
    FS- 2- Ball, Mike Hamlin - Still not sure if we can get a Collins, Bathea(SS) or Dawan Landry(SS)
    SS- 2- Sensy, Watkins

    ST-4 - I believe we dont know the name of our K yet

    man, that Spencer trade will look genius like when he's a book end pro bowler with Ware the next 5 seasons....as for Philly....they like Kolb but who knows. Bradley got hurt early in the year and has been mediocre overall....but in all seriousness Spence has TURNED THE CORNER and will be something else the next 5+ seasons....GREAT trade on the Cowboys part IMO
