    This isn't what I want, but I envision happening......

    Free Agency Signings

    Anthony Spencer DE
    Corey Wootton DE
    Henry Melton DT

    Draft
    My philosophy is to trade down as often as possible to pick up as many picks in the first 4 rounds as possible. Need depth at so many positions.... Then take best players available.

    1st Round (Trade down pick up extra 3rd) Odell Beckham Jr WR - Gives us speed on outside, and can play the slot. Perfect complement to Dez.

    2nd Round (Trade down pick up extra 4th) DaQuan Jones DT - Perfect 1 tech in this scheme. Very active player who can penetrate and be disruptive.

    3rd Round - Marcus Smith DE - Extremely explosive defensive end that consistently generates pressure.

    3rd Round (Via Trade) Brandon Thomas G/T - Has position flex. Can play guard this year, and kick out next year to tackle after Doug Free leaves. Really good football player with stock rising.

    4th Round - Jordan Tripp LB - Excellent athlete who can play either mike or the weak side linebacker. Stock is rising after stellar combine.

    4th Round (Via Trade) - Logan Thomas QB - Might not get this low. Stock is rising. Potential is through the roof, but erratic as a passer. Needs to be coached up a lot, but has the physical skills. Worst case scenario if he doesn't develop in couple years he can easily be moved to tight end which he has experience in.

    5th Round - Caraun Reid DT - Can play either the 1 or the 3

    7th Round - Calvin Barnett DT - More of a 3 tech

    7th Round - De'Anthony Thomas RB

    7th Round - Walt Aikens CB

    Well you and I agree on a lot of the same players. Reid, Tripp, Smith, Jones, and Brandon Thomas would all be great picks. Although I think Thomas in the late 3rd is kind of a pipe dream at this point.....

    OBJ is fun to think about but Im pretty sure Jerry is going D in round 1. I would expect WR/RB in the 2nd or 3rd though.

    Logan Thomas in the 4th? No way, but you're right that its something Jerry would do.

    Wr in the 1st I doubt will happen not that I would like the pick. If we trade back I hope we look at crotch on there and use a extra 3rd on a wr.
    Love most these players. Jones, Thomas, Tripp, and Reid. Don't see them going with a 1 tech in the 2nd. Marinelli, Jerry , and Stephen all said you can get 1 techs later in the draft.

    Bekham in the first and Logan Thomas in the fourth? This draft would be infuriating and undo the good they have done this offseason.

    no. No. NO.

    Smells like the 2009 draft.

    This draft stinks of East Coast/SEC bias. All those guy are over-rated

    Like the bottom end of the draft, though I don't see Reid falling to the fifth.

    Beckham is a very nice player, but might be a luxury they can't afford right now.

    Man everyone is such haters on Logan Thomas.... Why? Because he is not accurate? Guy has rare physical tools. If we are starting Romo the next few years, why not take a chance?

    I probably sound like a broken record at this point but.....drafting QB's in the mid rounds is statistically a horrible pick. There really is no such thing as "developing" a QB that wasn't picked in the top rounds. There are a handful of exceptions but the fast majority of any QB taken from rounds 3-7 in the past 15 years have done absolutely nothing in the NFL. If 4 years at a major university wasn't enough to develop the necessary skill set why would it just suddenly click on?
