    I want to compile an averaged list of the top college players where Dallas needs help.
    So, if you can, list the top 3 teachable players for each of the profiles. No head cases at all similar to Ross or Bryant. Any or all of the following, and roughly where they rank among the top 100 players.

    3 Big DT's that complement Glover.
    3 Ballhawk safeties that complement Roy Williams.
    3 Corners that... uh.... cover.
    3 Speed WR's or game changing WR's
    3 pass rushing DE's
    3 OT's
    3 Guards
    2 Change of Pace RB's (ala Alstott)
    3 ILB/OLB's We all know Derrick Johnson is #1
    1 Your top QB if we go that route, assume that Leinert is gone.

    Could you clarify what you mean by teachable? I guess I dont understand your context. Thanks.

    Teachable means they don't have a hint of off the field problems, and could mesh with Parcells. Ross and Bryant are examples of players that don't mesh with Parcells.

    DT - Ngnata(sp) - Gabe Watson - A. Hawthorne

    Saftey's - not sure here. I just do not think there are many FS prospects, but there are some good Strong Safties. I probably like Jimmy Williams the best at FS, but he has not declared, I do not like Brodney Pool though.

    Corners - A. Rolle - Pac-Man Jones - C. Rogers

    WR - No questions - M. Williams - B. Edwards - M. Clayton.

    DE's - E. James - Kiwi - M. Spears

    OT's - I will leave to the others. I would only be going off what others say. I do not pay much attention to line play when watching College ball.

    Guards - see tackles.

    Change of Pace RB's - Ronnie Brown - Cedric Benson are definetly different styles and more bruisers. I do not know if you are looking for later round prospects though.

    LBers - D. Johnson - A. Brooks - D. Blackstock

    QB - I like Alex Smith, and Jason Campbell. I am intrigued by the kid out of Conneticut, but just have never seen him play.

    I'll add your info to the lists, thanks for looking at those things.
    I know Rolle is a great player, but I think his attitude might conflict with Parcells a bit. I also doubt if Parcells will draft a corner with the first draft pick. Also, the backs I was looking at were hopefully Alstott clones, or at least the possibility of developing into one. Anyway, your list looks good!

    What info do you have on Gabe Watson or D Blackstock?

    bumping this, it's a good discussion for what Dallas needs, and who can fit the bill. Of course, some changes will need to be made based on who's declaring and who's not.
