    Bob Brookover, of the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports USC OT Winston Justice said he will have a pre-draft visit with the Dallas Cowboys.

    I like him, but after his pro day I don't think he drops to us.

    I do for one reason. He's considered a RT by most people and not a LT. Those generally aren't rated as high first rounders.

    I think most people think he can swing over and play LT because his feet and athletic ability are so good...one of the reasons he played RT at USC is because Leinart was left handed

    I agree...I dont think there is much hope he lasts past the 10-15 range...he's clearly the 2nd best T in this draft and has probowl potential for years to come

    Justice did have a great workout, but it is a bit ballsy to take a guy that played nothing but RT and project him to LT in the NFL. There is a learning curve. Look at all the problems Rogers had moving from LT to RT and footwork was considered one of his strengths as well. Now I'm not comparing the talent level of the two, just stating that moving from one side to the other isn't as cut and dried as many like to think. Every move the player makes has to be done opposite what they've done for years. That isn't simple.

    I think Justice falls to us unless another team wants to take him as a RT.
