    If he somehow falls to Dallas at 16 and my guy Aaron Donald is off the board then I'm all for it.

    Interesting.

    The talent available at 16, will depend for the most part on whether the top 3 QB's (Bridgewater, Manziel, Bortles) are selected within the top 10.
    If all 3 QB's are drafted within the top 10, a top flight DT (Donald), OL (Lewan), or LB/DE hybrid (Barr), all of whom would fill needs for Dallas & would more than likely be there at 16.

    If the QB needy teams feel they can get a quality QB in the 2nd or 3rd round (Carr, Mettenberger, McCarron, Garoppolo), it is not unlikely on the other hand, than a QB could slide to Dallas at 16 - Bridgewater or Manziel.

    If Houston, Jacksonville, Cleveland, and Minnesota all pass on the QB's in the 1st round (which is conceivable), Dallas would be in a good position to select either Bridgewater or Manziel.
    Sooner or later, more likely sooner, a quality replacement for Romo must be developed ~ why not Bridgewater or Manziel?

    I would be happy if Barr fell to us...I would be seriously deflated if he were there and we traded down

    The harder question is that IF BOTH Donald and Barr are available who do you take?

    I think I take Barr because of higher ceiling. The kid just played D for last 2 yrs. He has barely scatched his potential. It will take 2 yrs but he's gonna be a good one.

    I only watched his Stanford game, but he sure got blocked a lot. Had trouble feeling the receiver sitting down behind his zone in coverage. Looks a lot like Dion Jordan did coming out

    I remember watching Barr in games last year and thought to myself if only the Cowboys could get a player like that....

    I hope he falls to 16 but I don't think he will IMO

    Barr is an every down player, even in a 4-3. He can play SAM and then slide to DE on passing downs. If he bulks up 10 lbs he would be fine as an every down RDE. He needs to work on his hands but the kid is still raw, having only played defense 2 years. He was an all-world RB in high school and Rick Neuheisel wasted him as an H-Back for 2 years at UCLA.

    I can only think of 8 players that I would say almost for sure won't fall to 16:

    Clowney
    Robinson
    Watkins
    Bortles
    Bridgewater
    Manziel
    Mack
    Matthews
    -----
    then there are 13-15 others that could go before us, but only 7 will....in no particular order:

    Lewan
    Clinton-Dix
    Dennard and/or Gilbert
    Ebron
    Evans
    Barr
    Mosley
    Lee
    Martin
    Ealy
    Nix
    Pryor

    and maybe a couple of others.

    This is going to be wild

    Just a reminder of something you all know, the question on draft day of who takes a player before us is a moving target. All 31 other teams are in play when trades are possible.

    One of the above please...


    In Order for Best Player Available, OT Lewan, TE Ebron, DE Barr, WR Evans then LB Mosley.....or just Draft LB Ryan Shazier, he should be there for certain.

    The stories that Manziel was tremendous at his pro day. That should drive up his value significantly. I'd just as soon pass on Bridgewater if it came to that.
