    WE stay put, really want to trade down because I think thats what Dallas Cowboys plan to do, but Michael Brockers is too good a DE to pass up.
    1. Michael Brockers DT/NT/DE Reports are that Belicheak Patriots Head Coach says Brockers reminds him of a young Richard Seymour. And further rumors are that Patriots are not only trying to trade up for Barron S, but Brockers too.

    CBS Sports (Rob Rang): 2nd-rated DT; 14th overall

    Pass rush: Only registered two sacks in 2011 but appears to have blossoming natural pass rush skills. Good initial quickness off the snap and flashes an explosive burst to split gaps. Surprising use of leverage for a player of his height. Good arm length and strength to keep his opponents' hands off his chest. Good bull rusher due to his use of leverage and good leg drive. Good quick arm-over swim move, which is made especially effective due to his long arms. Stymied at the line of scrimmage by chop blocks early in the season (Oregon) but improved his awareness and balance as the year went on. Good lateral agility and an explosive burst to close when the quarterback is near. Good awareness to get his hands in the air. Knocked down three passes in 2011 including making a diving interception against Northwestern State.

    Run defense: Again, shows surprising bend and power to win the leverage battle despite his height. Used as part of a rotation and loses his effectiveness when his pad level rises as he tires. Good upper body strength to stack and shed. Lacks the anchor to hold up to double teams, but shows good quickness and aggression to seize the gap and works hard to split it. Pursues well when he has a lane to do so. Can get tied up inside and lose track of the ball. Good effort. Gets up quickly when knocked to the ground and gives his all to the whistle.

    Explosion: Flashes enough quickness off the snap to threaten gaps at three-technique, especially when slanting. Heavy hands, good lower body strength and the ability to roll his hips into his opponent to drive them backwards on the bull rush. Arrives with a thud as a tackler.

    Strength: Still growing but shows very good strength to hold up as an interior run defender when he maintains his proper pad level. Long, strong arms for the take-down tackle despite being engaged with a blocker.

    Tackling: A forceful hitter who brings his hips to explode into the ball-carrier. "Only" forced one fumble in 2011 but did the same in 2010 despite considerably less playing time. Appears to have the athleticism and closing speed to improve in this area with more experience. Generally a good wrap-up tackler who brings ball-carriers to the ground quickly and securely. Good effort laterally and downfield in pursuit.

    Intangibles: Given a late first to early second round grade by the NFL Advisory Committee. Lined up as a three technique, on the nose (zero technique) and outside at defensive end (five technique) for LSU in 2011. Has had no known off-field or injury issues while at LSU. Though Brockers' 2011 season seemingly came out of nowhere, head coach Les Miles predicted it heading into the 2010 season characterizing Brockers as "becoming a bear to handle inside.

    2. Here the Cowboys get a call from the Patriots to move up to take a player they are targeting. Cowboys be sure it isnt one of the players they are interested in. Thus making the trade, the Cowboys get the Patriots 2 second rounders, making them pay for last year of nixing us on the Ingram trade. Cowboys get the 48 and 62nd picks, while giving up their 4th rounder and 5th rounder. Dont worry though we get that 4th rounder back because they get a call from the eagles, (we previously got brockers before they could get him), so the eagles at 51st pick, wanted to be sure we werent taking a player they wanted in 2nd. The cowboys swap 2nd rounders with eagles and get their 4th pick, the 114th pick. Using the eagles 2nd rounder, the cowboys take

    3rd 66th Pick Brandon Brooks OG

    Name: Brandon Brooks

    40 Time: 4.99 40 Low: 4.92 40 High: 5.12
    Projected Round: 2 Stock: High: Early 2 Low: 3
    Rated number 4 out of 189 OG's 63 / 1971 TOTAL
    Brooks was a lightly recruited prep player, choosing Miami (OH) over a few other MAC programs. After redshirting in 2007, he earned a starting position at left guard in 2008 and started all 12 games. Brooks again started all 12 games in 2009 as a sophomore guard, earning Second Team All-MAC honors. He missed most of the first half of the 2010 season as a junior, but started at both left tackle and left guard down the stretch, earning Second Team All-MAC honors. Brooks started every game in 2011 as a senior (12 starts), earning Second Team All-MAC honors for the third consecutive season. Brooks was a four-year starter in college and went from a 290-pound freshman to 353-pounds as a ...
    Strengths: Possesses a physically imposing frame with broad shoulders and a wide base ? big body with a strong, thickly built frame. Has good natural strength and raw power with the ability to be a mauler in the run game. Plays with a firm base with a stout anchor, holding his ground at the point of attack. Keeps his pad level low and flashes consistent leverage. Stays balanced and patient in his stance. Has overpowering upper body strength to overwhelm and eliminate defenders from the play ? jolts with his hands and shows a strong initial push. Quick off the snap and moves well for his size. Offers versatility with experience at left tackle and both guard spots

    With the Cowboys 71st pick the cowboys take
    LaMichael James RB

    Even for those who witnessed his blur-quick footwork and the where-the-heck-did-he-go elusiveness, there is much more to James than meets the eye. He has internal toughness and self-reliance that may have been destined before he was born, which is when his father was killed, or during a youth where his mother was usually gone and he was raised by his grandmother until she died when he was a junior in high school. Then what? Then he basically took care of himself those last two years at Liberty-Eylau High School in Texarkana, Texas. By the end of a dazzling 2010 season at Oregon, when he finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting, people still did not know the full measure of ...
    Inside: Size will be a detriment between the tackles at the next level, but don't underestimate his toughness. Prefers to run north-south, though, feeling his way through traffic with quick cuts and nice vision. May be used in zone system, shows patience to wait for blocking on stretch plays, able to find and take advantage of cutback lanes. Gets skinny to find tight creases to rip through when around the goal line or needing to pick up the first down. Can avoid a penetrating lineman, jump-step to find an open lane and accelerate into the second level. Given the ball in crunch time due to his toughness and ball security. Lacks the strength to push the pile or break off ...

    With the Cowboys 4th pick 98th pick the Cowboys take
    Michael Egnew TE
    With the 135th compensation pick the 4th round the Cowboys take
    T. Y. Hilton
    With the Cowboys 6th pick Cowboys work the phones again, trade with the Jets swap 6th picks and get their 7th pick then the Cowboys take
    Nick Foles QB> Note I don’t agree with this pick, but going off of what Hos said, with all sources cowboys spent on Foles, Cowboys take Foles. To me Foles lacks that commanding leadership and is injured a lot. He isn’t a scrambler and could get killed behing our OL, but with what Hostile said, I saw Cowboys take Foles.

    With the other 6th pick from Vikings trade the Cowboys take
    CB Chris Greenwood, a clone like player to Brandon Carr

    With their 7th picks cowboys take Olivier Vernon OLB/DE who has rare speed

    Braylon Broughton OLB/TE
    Broughton wasn't heavily recruited by major programs as a three-star recruit out of Hillcrest High School in Dallas. He started to see increased playing time during the second half of the 2009 season and played in all 13 games as a junior. He started only five of 13 games as a senior, registering 25 tackles, but six of those were for a loss. But it wasn't until his March 9 pro day that NFL scouts really began to take notice. Broughton displayed excellent athleticism at 259 pounds, running a 4.55-second 40-yard dash, lifting 225 pounds 26 times and posting a 36-inch vertical.

    Undrafted free agents the Cowboys take
    OG Ronald Leary Memphis
    G J Kinne QB Tulsa
    Patrick Witt QB Yale
    Nicolas Jean-BAptiste NT Baylor
    Kyle Martens P Rice
