    Who knows right now there are about 10-12 players I could see picked at 14.
    I think Dallas will trade back.

    But we still have a month left and I'm sure some news will come out by then.

    Usually when a team loads up on a position(And I do not mean adding great players in this case), they do not go out and draft that position(meaning a Guard). Dallas, also had paid Scandrick and now Carr, and Jenkins is about to cash in, so I think that takes CB out of consideration. Now, from what I hear about Barron, it seems that the #14 pick is a little early. Now last year, JG did not make any trades, on the other hand, is it reaching when there is a cap now for rookies, and it is the player you want? Also, DE/DT might be a consideration, considering Spears and Ratliff just signed deals, and Coleman is making a little money, but he can be cut, the other two can not, unless they want to take a cap hit. Now, Spencer has yet to sign his tender, which means right now his money is not guaranteed. Which would suggest, OLB/DE would be an option.

    So, my guess is either Barron, or a pass rusher to play OLB. I highly doubt a trade back, unless JG makes it not JJ.

    Actually, I do have his autograph. I was just a kid and my family and I saw him at LAX while we were vacationing. My dad walked right up to him and got his autograph because I was too scared to approach him.

    My dad did know a lot of the staff, coaches and players because he was in charge of the team plane when he worked for Braniff. I have pictures and autographs of over 100 Cowboys including Tex and Coach Landry!

    Mine too, even after calling Randy White "Captain Scab!" Loved watching him play!

    I think that'd be a smart pick. We haven't had stability at the Safety position for far too long and by all accounts Barron looks like he'll be a good player at the next level for a long time. He seems like the RKG Garrett is looking for and after his Pro Day a lot of people have been saying he cemented his status as a top 20 player.

    I get the crowd that wants to move back to try and get perfect value for the player you draft, but that can be a bit risky and sometimes blows up in your face. It might be wise to just sit at 14 and draft a good football player at a need position like Barron.

    I now get the feeling they will select one of the DBs from Alabama or South Carolina. I do think their preference is Barron.

    Then they'll turn around and take an OLB or DE in the 2nd.

    Yes, if he has a first round grade, it's a first round grade.

    As of today, I guess I'd have to go with Barron.

    As much as I'd like to pick DeCastro, I don't think we're going that direction. I think we're going Defense early and often.

    I would take Barron over Kirkpatrick, Brockers, Poe, and Upshaw as well.

    I like Cox on the DL, but I think there's a decent chance he along with Coples and Ingram will be gone by 14.

    Looking at it optimistically, I think Barron would be an early starter and help solidify the backfield. Just wish we could land a top CB or pass rusher . . . . but if we can't trade back and Ingram and Cox are gone by 14, I'd guess Barron is the pick.

    I think they will draft Brockers if he gets by Carolina.

    I been watching tape on him and my opinion has changed. Brockers is very young and very big 6'6 322 and he pushes the pocket big time. Sure he still has a lot to learn but his size and stregth are awesome! He could open the door for everyone on the DL including a passrusher we could take in the second or third. I would take Stanford TE in the second if he is there. Witten is slowing down fellas.

    If he falls to 14, I think Brockers is the selection. Otherwise, I think they will look to trade down.
