    Note-- asterisks after the height/weight figures and the 40 times indicate verified numbers (either from the Combine workouts, or Pro Day workouts)...

    Good work, Bear.

    One thing, though...

    2/3rd for Wimbley?

    He may be gone before the Cowboys draft at #18!

    If he makes it to the 'Boys, there is reasonable chance we take him at #18.

    If we pass on him, I don't think he makes it out of the 20's.

    He is a first rounder.

    Keep up the good work Bear. AJ Hawke is missing though, but he's an obvious 1st rounder unless I've missed some news in the past few days.

    Sorry, just realized this is the Cowboys draft board not the whole draft ranking by position.

    OK, Bear.. How is it that Super Mario made your list and Hawk did not?

    Easy-- the Cowboys sat down with him at some point in time during the offseason process, can't remember when...

    This list started out as a list of players I particularly liked, but as the offseason went on, and report after report after report rolled in of the Cowboys having an interview or workout with player X, player X got added to my "master list"...

    I like Hawk, I like him a lot, but I never saw anything that had the Boys paying him special attention, other than one rumor that they were considering trying to move up to draft him... those kinds of rumors were not enough to warrant inclusion on the spreadsheet... and since he'll be off the board before the Boys pick, he didn't make the list...

    I'm thinking you have a bit of a point, and I ought to move him up to 1st/2nd round status...

    I don't see Mark Anderson as 4th/5th either, though I can't tell you exactly why. Good intangibles, good pass rusher, and I recall he had a good combine workout as well.

    I thought these things were ONLY the cowboys draft board?


    No way in hell will Mario Williams be available at #18. And it's not a position of need so they won't be trading up for him either.


    He's a top 10 pick.


    ;)


    Crap, just saw that someone else already mention him.


    If you're gonna go by heresay, the cowboys were rumored to be considering the idea of trading up for AJ Hawk. Might as well have him on your list.


    Nevertheless, we won't be drafting Mario Williams. Although if by some miracle he did drop to 18, I wouldn't mind taking him eventhough we don't need him.

    Rack, I don't know what's up with you today, but you really ought to pay attention... I have told you that some players made the list simply because the Cowboys either interviewed them one on one, or worked them out, at some point in these past few weeks...

    IOW, the board is a synthesis of players that I like, and players the Cowboys are known to have shown an interest in...

    Yeah, I read that RUMOR, too... that's somewhat different from players we KNOW the Cowboys have interviewed or worked out... now, do you have a link to anybody saying that the Cowboys either interviewed Hawk, or worked him out??

    If not, and if this bothers you so very much, perhaps you should make up your own list, and quit wearin' me out over mine...

    By now, I think you've made it quite clear that you don't care much for my list, indeed you seem to think it was a wasted effort... others seem to think it's interesting...

    Nothing wrong with me, Pal.


    You really need to lighten up. I figured the smilie I left was enough to make the sarcasm in my post clear. I guess I'll just have to announce it word for word from now on.


    What's wrong with you?


    :cool: <<< Note the smilie.

    Good work, Silverbear. You listed all of the defensive players of interest that I had for Dallas, and then some. Agree with Cobra that Wimbley is a lock to go between pick #14-#40.

    Not a bad list, though there were some notable players that I didn't see included:

    DE: Ray Edwards
    DT: Babatunde Oshinowo, Barry Coefield, and Montavious Stanley
    OLB: DeMeco Ryans
    ILB: Anthony Schlegel, Tim Dobbins
    CB: DeMario Minter, Charles Gordon
    S: Antoine Bethea, Roman Harper

    Also since the Cowboys primary need is a kickoff guy right now, I definately wouldn't put Conor Hughes at the top of our list. He's quite small, and there are questions as to whether or not he could handle KO duties in the NFL. As a matter of fact, he only kicked off twice last year and averaged only 36.5 yards/kickoff though he did have 1 touchback.

    Oh, if you're just jerkin' my chain, carry on... LOL...

    It sure seemed like you had a problem with my list...

    In most of those cases, the problem was 40 times that did not meet my minimum criteria for the position in question...

    Though I'm a UVa fan, Hughes would not be at the top of my list for kickers, either... he'll be a good field goal man in the NFL, I think, but he is NOT a kickoff specialist... what he is, though, is the top-rated kicker that the Cowboys have shown an interest in, hence his position at the top of the list...

    Personally, I'd target Josh Huston, who had right at 70 per cent of his kickoffs go for touchbacks... after him, Gostkowski would be my second choice, he apparently has a pretty strong leg too...

    Nah I don't have a problem with the list. Just needed the clarification. After that I just decided to mess with you a bit.


    So why is Vince Young on your list? You think he has a chance to drop or was it cuz of that rumor that we might move up for him?

    Grrrrrrrr...


    He makes the list because Jerry sounded off at the Combine about him, suggesting he had an interest in him... there isn't a snowball's chance in Hades of that happening, of course, but my rule was if the Cowboys had a documented interest in a player, no matter what I might personally think about him, that player goes on the list...

    Trust me, a safety who runs a 4.7 40 (Dwayne Slay) would NEVER have made my list if it was just my preference...
