    "Designating" him a June 1 cut is for HIS benefit, not the team's. His available salary cap space is still not available UNTIL he is cut on June 1.

    Still shocked someone hasn't snagged Andre Smith yet.

    If you can draft Lane Johnson you don't need another OT IMO.

    Wow, Clabo too?

    I would be ECSTATIC if we were able to sign one of them and focus on other needs in the draft.

    Or more steak and sizzle like Tyron Smith, Marcus Spears and Anthony Spencer.

    Boy- I think Smith on a two year deal would be awfully motivated and very good. Wonder what he is looking for? I bet the Iggles will give it to him if they don't get a lineman in the draft so it might be a moot point.

    I'd bring all three in and see who takes the cheapest contract.

    It's very clear that PFF misevaluates a lot of players. For fans, the best indicator of the quality of a player is what contract he signs. It's funny when fans complain about teams for overpaying or underpaying players, when the proper course is actually to assume all players are paid correctly, since we have no better method of evaluation at our disposal.

    Three upgrades or what is currently on the roster? Tough call.

    Unless you're a professional scout, you probably won't know enough about the intricacies of technique and scheme to be able to evaluate the value of a player. A player can be successful because the scheme is altered to accomodate their weakness, whereas another player can get beat a lot but he is asked to do more difficult things. Very hard for non-scouts to evaluate.

    Even Greg Cosell, who watches ridiculous amounts of film and is as informed as any non nfl person, constantly phrases his evaluations with "if a gm values this" etc etc, because how each attribute is valued by teams and why is more complicated than even just scouting.

    Personally, I would address needs through free agency and take the best talent available regardless of position at #18. What do I know, though, Jerry is the personnel expert so if drafting a tackle to fill a need is there thinking then they know best!

    Not if they want to sign draft picks.

    If they sign Winston, then Free is a June first cut, which will give Cowboys plenty of room.
