    From what I've seen this kid is better than Ha-Ha. Has great ball hawking skills but can also come up a lay the wood. Him and Barry Church could make a great tandem. What do you guys think?

    Like him a ton! As long as we upgrade the defensive line. That is the foremost concern for this team. Earl Thomas and Eric Berry would look awful with Crawford, Bass, Wynn and Selvie rushing the passer.

    Want to study him more for sure. Rates in the 35-40 range on most updated boards.

    Could he be our 2014 Frederick?

    I would slow down with him being better than HaHa.. I think he pops on tape more because of the big hits and tackling ability but I think HaHa has much more range which is honestly what we need.. If you watch Pryor on tape he is almost never forced to play man coverage on TE's and rarely is in single high.. He is similar to Barry Church in the way he is used..I wouldn't mind picking Pryor but at this point I still would rather have HaHa.

    HaHa makes plays that you won't see on highlights.. He keeps QB's from throwing downfield because of his speed and presence.. Pryor will always look better on a highlight real..

    Going into this draft I wanted DE/DT but in looking at the prospects I am really hoping we come away with either HaHa or Pryor because I think they are better players than any of the D-Lineman in the first..

    1st: Haha/Pryor
    2nd: Sutton/Donald

    I believe we are going to be able to draft "rushmen" in the later rounds that will be able to contribute. If we end up with HaHa or Pryor(especially after a trade down similar to last year in Pryor's case) and Donald I would be overjoyed! Add a mid level starter via free agent on the line and the defense is significantly upgraded.

    Not really. If you find me one person that thinks adding a couple safeties would have us better than we were this year with that atrocity of a defensive line, punch them in the face for me.

    The bones in my hands would turn into dust.

    The team definately wouldnt have gone 16-0 but a couple of good safeties wouldve changed things somewhat. Yes, better safeties woulve made the Cowboys better. I dont want to really just single out one particular guy or game BUT take the Detroit game for example. Would have having a damn good saftey out there other than Heath have changed things. Absolutely.

    It's really not hard to improve over Jeff Heath. We have two guys on the roster that are better and for different reasons didn't play (Wilcox - I don't get it. Matt Johnson - glass legs).

    I don't agree on the DET game. I think if we could have sacked Matt Stafford more than once we could have really changed the outcome of that game. We were among the bottom of the league in sacks. Only 30. That's pathetic.

    For the record I like Calvin Pryor, just not enough to spend a premium pick. If we were looking at starting Ware, Hatcher, Spencer, Selvie, Ratliff, and Crawford along the line like last year, and assuming no devastating injuries, then I would be absolutely fine taking Clinton-Dix or Pryor. But not this year. If he's there, trade the pick for more picks. We need as many chances as we can get to hit on some defensive linemen and linebackers.

    a great front 7 can make spare safeties look like pro bowlers.
    You build your defense from the front to the back.
