    If he's rising into the top 10,
    who's falling out?
    aka The Incredibly Stretching Top 10

    If you've followed Twitter the last few days, you know these players are now given "good chances" to go in the top 10:

    1. Andrew Luck QB
    2. Robert Griffin III QB
    3. Ryan Tannehill QB
    4. Trent Richardson RB
    5. Justin Blackmon WR
    6. Michael Floyd WR
    7. Matt Kalil OT
    8. Riley Reiff OT
    9. Morris Claiborne CB
    10. Stephon Gilmore CB
    11. Fletcher Cox DE
    12. Michael Brockers DE
    13. Melvin Ingram DE/OLB

    Gilmore being the latest to gain some top 10 buzz.
    13 > 10

    falls to #9, the Cowboys must be prepared to move up for him. Last year's price was a 2nd round draft pick ( Jacksonville moved up from #16 to #10 ) and it involved a QB, so it's not going to take more than that to happen. I would not mind giving up a 2nd round draft pick for Claiborne at all.

    As a matter of fact, Carolina is looking for help on defense, preferably at DE:

    #14, Anthony Spencer, + a 3rd round pick to move up to #9 for Claiborne.

    It's a pipe dream, I know, because the Cowboys might think they don't need as much help at CB with the signing of Carr, and losing Spencer will probably hurt in the short term, but having the possibility to get a like Claiborne is just too tempting.

    I'm not trading a 2nd rounder for anybody

    with the caveat of Luck and RGIII I am right there with you.

    that really is choking on Smoke. I find it hard to believe Tannehill goes that high; and I doubt Brockers does either. Same with Floyd while I do not think Claiborne falls that far
