    if he is there at 22, would you be upset if Dallas drafted him? How about if he slipped to 28.......would you be upset if Dallas drafted him there?

    I know we are pretty deep at LB....however, he seems to always be around the ball. My biggest issue with Connor is the track history with PSU LBs.....they seem to be average at best in the NFL....even Lavar Arrington didn't really live up to the hype.....

    Nope, they won't be drafting a LB high this year. There will be plenty of quality at cb and rb to choose from.

    Its kind of like asking if they draft Brohm, are you going to be upset. Its just not going to happen so why even worry.

    Yes I'd be UPSET! Like speedkilz said, it's like drafting a QB #1, the need just isn't there and makes no sense. Now as far as drafting a MLB later(rounds 4-6) I'm all for that.

    Yes, I'd be very upset. You don't draft BPA. You draft best person that fits a need.

    I love Dan Connor and think he's going to be a great player but like Bobby Carpenter, he just would not fit in our defense.

    I like Goff, but more towards the 4th.

    Dan Connor is a good college player, but he's grossly overweight and has a boorish wife named Roseanne. ;)

    I wouldnt be upset at all. Conner is a great player and I think Dallas lacks a great middle linebacker.
    I know we need DBs but something I almost never hear is the fact that we lack play makers at middle linebacker and thats very important in a 34 defense

    Yes I'd be pissed....

    He is a smaller Bobby Carpenter who also cant shed blocks...

    He will be a good MLB if he has DT's to keep guards off of him. He has a nose for the ball and great instincts, but needs protection.
