    Barron: Mr. Buzz
    Here's some NFL draft smoke and eggs for Monday brunch. Apply the necessary amount of salt:

    -- A source told me this morning that Alabama safety Mark Barron is one of the hottest names right now and may be gone before the Cowboys pick at 14. Knowledge of Dallas' interest may fuel a deal up. I was told the Tennessee Titans might look to deal up into the 11-13 range to get Barron. I was told similar things about the Jets (currently 16th) and the Eagles (15th).

    Well then I guess we'll just have to settle for DeCastro. :)

    Not worried about a team jumping us to get to Barron. This stuff always starts circulating before the draft.

    I'll be happy with Gilmore or Barron at this point.

    I want DeCastro anyways. Barron gone before we pick just means there's a bigger chance DeCastro will be there

    DeCastro!!! Maybe a little Blake in there too. Then focus on D next year through FA and draft.

    This board will blow no matter who the pick is but when Dallas passes on DeCastro it's shaping up to be the most epic drama filled day in recent history.

    I think there's a very real chance that Cox, Barron and Decastro all go before #14. That would be the nuclear scenario for us as it would mean a trade down or Brockers.

    I'm just not excited about Brockers. He's just not ready to play at this level.

    ......last year people were flipping OUT that T.Smith would be gone or someone would trade up. Well....thankfully it didn't happen. If he stays healthy he'll be our starting LT the next 12 years and make MULTIPLE pro bowls. He'll be the best Olineman in that draft BY FAR. If Cox is gone, we'll take Barron, if hes goner we'll take decastro.....cant go wrong

    At some point in the next 5 days I plan on getting blamed for something so I'm mentally prepared. :p:

    If Cox and Barron are off the board and Decastro is still there...I wouldn't necessarily be disappointed if we chose instead to trade down (only if we end up getting Konz later in the first and a guard in a later round).

    But if we pick at 14 with those two off the board and we pass on Decastro...I may throw the remote thru the TV. :bang2: We simply must address the OL...preferrably both G and C.

    Fingers crossed here for good things:pray:

    I'll say that I don't watch the most college ball of most people but so I don't know every draft prospect like I would be able to but I do know I just don't get the warm fuzzy feeling about brockers. He may turn out to be a 10yr. Pro bowler but as this moment I'm just not feeling it.

    Yup.

    When and if Barron and Cox are gone and DeCastro is still available at #14, and the Cowboys trade down to #22 with Cleveland (so they can take Michael Floyd), the only way people don't break their keyboards griping around here will be if he slides and is still available at #22.

    If they get Mercilus that would be okay. But, all of this talk about people wanting Barron is making me want the Cowboys to get him even more.

    My fear is we'll have to "settle" for Brockers or Poe! :eek:

    Rather have Barron than DeCastro, Cox and Coples are #1 on a short list.

    Meanwhile back at the Motel, Brockers is 2012s Tyron Smith.

    Honestly, he's been my pet cat for the first round pick since day 1, and as much as I've liked the fact that a lot of the "experts" are now agreeing with me, the thought that his value may now be so high that we'd have to trade up to get him has me a bit disgruntled.

    That said, I don't think a number of the rumblings about different teams planning to trade up to get him or take him in the top 10 are true. There's more smoky haze going on around the league right now than in the middle of the mob at a Grateful Dead concert.
