    Some NFL teams build comprehensive draft boards, where they rank every eligible player. Many other teams, the Cowboys included, have short-boards, where they only have 120-150 players which fit their profiles. In this week's chat with the National Football Post's Wes Bunting, we're going to build a short-short board, with maybe 45-60 names or so to watch in the early rounds.

    Cowboys Nation: A pre-draft dust storm blew through the Cowboys world last week. They brought in Boise State's Doug Martin for a visit. He's rated very highly. You have him 4th on your running back board. Others say he could be the first back taken after Trent Richardson.

    The visit led to a lot of speculation about Felix Jones' status, since he's entering the last year of his deal. How does Martin stack up as a prospect?

    I like Martin a lot. But he's just a good all purpose back and there's nothing real special about him other than he does everything pretty well. I wouldn't draft him assuming he goes in the first three rounds as expected.

    True, but thats why you do your homework on the players, draft process, having them in for a visit with staff and coaches to get a feel, see what they know on the board etc...

    So, if that player falls to you, then your ready or know if you should draft that player or not. You have to cover all your bases.
