    Resign:
    • Stephen Bowen- Rob likes him the most out of the DEs and he offers the most as a pass rusher.
    • Doug Free- Just get it done.
    • Gerald Sensabaugh- Cheap and 2-3 years
    • Kyle Kosier- He's been up and down here but he's the brains of the OL, let him stay for another 2-3 years while we find guys to groom for the interior.
    Don't Resign:
    • Alan Ball- Project fail.
    • Alex Barron- Get out.
    • Marcus Spears- Nice player but is not worth what he'll ask for.
    • Sam Hurd- Time's up.
    • Jason Hatcher- Nice player but we can do better.
    Cut:
    • Marion Barber- He's run down and not worth the money he's making. Save some cash.
    • Keith Brooking- Ditto.
    • Marc Columbo- Ditto.
    • Leonard Davis- Ditto

    Restructure:
    • Terence Newman- If he doesn't want to restructure then cut him, he's getting old and his play has been declining.
    • Roy Williams- It looked like the chemistry bewteen him and Romo might have finally been found early on in the season but he needs to redo his deal if he wants to stay.

    Free Agency:
    • Micheal Huff- Longhorn #1- Very underrated FS who struggled early in his career at SS. Started to turn it around under Rob Ryan's last year in Oakland. Rob gets his unfinished product, Huff still has upside and will eliminate the big plays that have plagued us.
    • Shaun Rogers- Longhorn #2- Monster lineman who lined up all over the place for Rob in Cleveland last year. He might be limited in the amount of snaps he can handle per game, but when he's in there he's dominant. Immediately increases our short yardage and pass rush and will be affordable.
    • Justin Blalock- Longhorn #3- Blalock is only 27 and just entering his prime, he'd probably be our most expensive FA signing but by no means would cause us to break the bank. WIll be a rock at RG.
    • John St. Clair- Quality insurance who will come cheap, St. Clair has been a journeyman throughout his career but has experience playing both tackle spots. We can't have Sam Young the only backup Tackle on the team.
    • Kenyon Coleman- Rob gets one of his Cleveland guys to come in. Coleman is solid against the run and will provide nice depth at a cheap price.
    • If we have money left, go get Nnamdi Asomugha*.


    Draft:

    Trade down around 20 or so pick up an extra 2nd and 4th
    • 1. Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisonsin- Carimi might not have the upside of a Jake Long or Joe Thomas but he'll come NFL ready and will be able to go from day 1. Team him up with Blalock on the right side and our offense line woes are solved.
      [*]2a. Aaron Williams, CB, Texas- Williams is a rock solid corner who should be there with our 2nd. Similar in a lot of ways to Terence Newman, is very polished and would be able to handle the nickel role from the start.
      [*]2b. Quinton Carter, SS, Oklahoma- Great leadership intangibles and will bring back the intimidation to our secondary. People might think "Not another OU safety!" but this guy can actually handle his coverage responsibilities. Reliable tackler and capable blitzer, two big things Rob will look when he's scouting safeties. Can learn behind Sensy and be used in special packages as a rookie. Will eventually be a stud.
      [*]3. Kenrick Ellis, NT, Hampton- Ratliff can not hold his own at NT on 1st and 2nd downs, he is simply not big enough to handle double teams on the inside. He'll be better suited to play End next year. Ellis can come in and compete with Brent but most likely will come off the bench as a rookie.. He's a small school guy but when it comes to DL there's not really a learning curve, just beat the man in front of you. Ellis is 6-4 340 and has a little Shaun Rogers nastiness to him.
      [*]4a. John Moffitt, G, Wisconsin- Quality depth for the interior OL and someone we can groom to be the eventual replacement of Kosier.
      [*]4b. Jeremy Kerley, WR, TCU- If Dez or Miles miss time next year we become awfully thin at WR. Kerley is a natural slot guy with big play capabilities. He can return kicks as well.
      [*]5. Nate Irving, ILB, NC St- May have to trade up for him a little bit to make sure we get him, but Irving would be great depth at ILB. The reason he falls to the 5th round is because he will reportedly run a slow 40 time but don't let that scare you off, he plays much faster. He is extremely intense on the field and would provide an upgrade to Bradie in passing situations right away while we groom him to be the eventual successor.
      [*]6. Alex Green, RB, Hawai'i- A Steven Jackson look a like, no other back in the country has more experience catching the ball out of the backfield than Green. At 6-2 230 he is deceptive fast and would be a nice fit as our #3 RB.
      [*]7. Alex Henery, K, Nebraska- 7th rounders are usually a shot in the dark so why not take the sure thing and draft the kicker, Lord knows we need one. Henery is one of the most decorated kickers in NCAA history and can punt as well if we ever find ourselves in an emergency situation.

    Longhorn homer. No way do we want Shaun Rogers. We need a guy that can be consistent. Moffit will not last till the fourth. We do not need to draft a SS.

    I'm not a Longhorn fan but ok.

    We'll see what Rob Ryan thinks.

    The 4th is actually where he's projected to go, he's not even a top 5 guard in the draft not sure why you think he won't be there.

    I'll respectfully 100% disagree on that.
