    Because when you're obsessed with receivers, corners & tight ends, other positions get passed over.

    Been saying this for a while
    Byrd should be our no. 1 FA target

    FS is a longer learning curve than DL and there are no sure fire FS in this draft. It there are several DL that can start day 1 and make an impact

    We don't need a 1 year stop gap, we need a long term answer

    It won't be easy, probably means restructuring Carr and Ware, BUT Byrd solves many problems with this Defense. The draft has an abundance of D Line candidates, only a few decent Safety prospects.

    I personally think defensive line is more of this secondary's problem. I've seen teams with a worse secondary personnel wise get more out of their secondary because they have solid defensive lines.....

    We need a safety in the worst way period.

    I agree, if we are not planning on drafting a safety then we better be addressing it in FA and this guy is the best option.

    I have a feeling all of this wishing for Jairus Byrd is not going to end well.

    I don't think a draft pick solves the problem. It's difficult to play a rookie while they're implementing a new defense.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see them target the Bear's free agent Safety. He knows the system and would be much cheaper than Byrd.

    I agree but would also say our lack of stopping the run which forces the safety to react harder to the run. if guys up front where doing their jobs it would help free up the safety

    I feel more confident in Wilcox and Barry Church improving for another year than I do Nick Hayden, George Selvie and Tyrone Crawford.....

    I don't have a problem with a draft pick at safety although if so then I'd go in the first or second for the most part. I don't think they need a drafted safety. I think you should see what you have in Heath, Wilcox and Johnson. I'd agree with Woody. Get yourself a cover safety and I'm still a proponent of putting wise corners back there big enough to play the position. A veteran who can help Church and get Wilcox, Johnson and Heath ready to play later on is a great idea.

    and Spears on the DL..........as for safety
    I am in belief that Wilcox can be a very good player for us if given the time, maybe he makes a big jump this year who knows; but do you think Wilcox is a possible answer at safety, and if yes wouldn't you rather spend a 3 or 4 on safety and fix the DL in the first two rounds. It's a losers mentality to bet all in on Wilcox and think 4th round this year. I say draft football players and they are in high demand in Dallas. Now me?? If our DL man is gone at the time we pick I draft the second safety off the board at 16 and think only an idiot couldn't draft two dlinemen contributors in the next 3 round from this draft. Shoot.........I might go LB in round two or corner, and I'd still feel pretty strong about landing contributors for the dline in rounds 4 and 5. The new d-coordinator will have strong input and I'm thinking he see's as gooda dine guys in round 3/4/5 as in 1/2.

    we shall see....I know there are 2 more months and this will come up again another 2500 times

    How long have we been starved for a safety who has the ability to stuff the run, cover the deep stuff and rush the passer.

    Seems to me like Darren Woodson was the last one to own all of those qualifications way back when. Well, that's too long!
