    With a longer season (18 games) next year and an unexplosive (OLD) offensive line except for Doug Free, here's my take:

    First Round: Although OT Tyson Smith is young (just turned 20yrs old in Dec), he's got excellent technique, quick feet, and is strong as a moose. Yes, he's underweight somewhat but he'll put on additional muscle in a short time. I have NO problem with the Boys drafting Tyson at Pick #9. He'll be an All-Pro in his second year and a fixture at LT for years. He may have to INTERN at RT for 1 yr but he's LT material and would be a STEAL at pick #9.

    Round 2: Benjamin Ijalana OG (6'4" 320lbs) from Villanova. He's the real deal. Put him at Left Guard next to Doug Free (LT/6'6" 320lbs) and Andre Gurode (Center/6'4" 318lbs) and Leonard Davis (Right Guard/6'6" 355lbs) and Tyson Smith (RT/6'6" 300lbs) and we'd have a huge dominating OL again.

    Round 3: Kenrick Ellis NT (6'5" 338lbs) or Jerrell Powe NT (6'2" 331lbs). We all know why we need a mammoth NT on our defensive line. Enough said. Let's go play some PHYSICAL football again!!!

    Round 4: Kevin Sheppard ILB (6'2" 250lbs) or Nate Irving ILB (6'1" 242lbs) to provide some ILB depth. We all know that Sean Lee will be ready to take over for Keith Brookings but will Brook want to backup or retire.

    Round 5: John Clay RB (6'1" 255lbs) . Bruiser from Wisconsin that played at RB but could play FB as well. A huge stud that the Cowboys have lacked for years but the top tier teams always have.

    Round 6: Allen Bradford RB (5'11" 235lbs). Another big back for depth and to pound the rock behind a HUGE OL for 18 games.

    Round 7: Tejay Johnson FS (6'0" 212lbs). Started TCU's last 36 games at FS on a defense that LED the nation in total defense for 3 straight years!!!
