    Just don't like Jernigan that much, but if the coaches liked him and drafted him, I trust this staff's drafting. It's been good lately.

    McGill is a big CB. Going a little bit toward the Richard Sherman route with that one. Haven't seen him play, though. I want to see his press/punch at the line

    These guys don't seem like instant contributors outside of Jernigan. Lots of potential and developmental picks. I think we need more immediate help on the defensive front in this draft, but this isn't a bad draft.

    Jernigan finished this season with 63 tackles, including 4 1/2 sacks and was a second-team AP All-America

    STRENGTHS: Stays light on his feet with good movement skills for a 300-pounder, showing smooth hips and fluid lateral range to work up and down the line of scrimmage. Jernigan does a nice job using his hands and footwork to sidestep blockers and collapse gaps, and has active hands and the upper-body strength to bully blockers. Jernigan also shows improved ball awareness and can anchor against multiple blocks

    don't know how more you need

    An argument can be made that Florida OG Jon Halapio had the best week of any offensive lineman (battling with Zach Martin). I was impressed by his upper body strength initially, and even more impressed by his ability to reset his feet with tremendous balance and force, redirecting his rusher initially and then as they tried their secondary rush too

    but I still like

    Dakota Dozier, OG, 6-4 #295 Furman

    Furman's former left tackle moved inside to guard this past week and acquitted himself well. Good thing, because the NFL will ask him to do the same. "[Dozier] has quick feet, excellent balance and strong hands," Jeremiah wrote. "In the run game, he was able to generate movement at the point of attack. In the passing game he was an easy mover and didn't have much trouble anchoring down against power rushers or redirecting versus quicker opponents

    Jay Bromley, DT, 6-3, #310 Syracuse

    Jay Bromley, the Syracuse defensive tackle, had only four sacks in his previous two years as a starter for the Orange. Currently, the 6'4" 293-pound defensive lineman leads the FBS in sack yardage and is one quarterback take down behind Pittsburgh's highly touted Aaron Donald for the FBS lead in sacks by an interior linemen.

    Kevin Norwood, WR, 6-2 #200 Alabama

    Looking for a WR who has a natural ability to high point the ball in the air? Take a look at Alabama’s Kevin Norwood

    Ethan Westbrooks is a player who has dominated the opposition for the West Texas A&M football team for the past two years. He lines up as a defensive end but is known for wreaking havoc in the opposing backfield. His statistics are staggering, but they don’t tell the full story.

    At 6’3” and 260 pounds, he has been too much to handle for offensive linemen. In 2012 he registered 28 tackles for loss and 19.5 sacks. He also broke up two passes and forced three fumbles. As a senior in 2013, he had 19.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks to go along with five passes defended and a forced fumble

    Ethan Westbrooks is one of those physically imposing defensive linemen with violent hands, a truly impressive burst and the ability to penetrate gaps to stop the run while stalking the quarterback at the same time. He is a ferocious football player and the kind of player that I want to see

    Dozier is impressive. He looked good a LT in 2012. He would be a good pick if he is really available in the 3rd round.

    Based on college game footage, not the all star games, I was more impressed with Dozier than Halapio. Despite being a small school guy, Dozier seems to be better technically and seems to have quicker hands and feet. Both have good upside, but Dozier just looked a little better to me.

    Isn't Zack Martin supposed to be ideal for a zone blocking scheme? He played LT in college but they say he's better suited for LG. He'd be worth a 2nd round pick but I doubt he'll fall that far.

    It was argued for days about Frederick not fitting a ZBS last year. I was told by several posters that he should not be on the Cowboys board at all. The ZBS can be run with a variety of linemen including the huge guys that have decent movement skills. IMO, I don't want any lineman that doesn't have the frame to play at 320lbs or more. I just like the big guys that can wear a defense down. The last thing I want to see is another Arkin type that doesn't have the strength and size needed.

    I think that was all based on people looking at his forty time. In game footage, Frederick appears to have good speed/quickness.
