    I want a Guard badly but I wouldn't be mad if our first 3 picks were D Linemen.

    Also, I think they will be adding Shilique Calhoun, DR, Michigan State to that list. The redshirt sophomore is going off this year.

    I would be in favor of the Cowboys drafting Cyril Richardson in the 1st or David Yankey in the 2nd.

    Su'a-Filo, Collins, and Gabe Jackson also look decent.

    Antonio Richardson would be an excellent RT and could probably play OG as well.

    Cameron Erving also looks like a guy that could play OG. He is powerful.

    Seantrel Henderson probably has as much athletic ability as anyone, but has yet to make a year without some type of character related issue popping up. He reminds me of a more athletic version of Flozell Adams. Teams would be crazy to draft him in the top 3 rounds based on his character history.

    I'm not overly impressed with the DL that are expected to be available in the second half of the 1st round and into the 2nd round; however, the OL appears to be loaded in that area of the draft.

    I think Marinelli can develop some DLinemen without having 1st rounders; whereas, the OL seems to be more difficult to develop. I don't see the Cowboys ever having a running game with Bernadeau next to Doug Free. Free is regressing without Waters next to him. One overwhelming physical presence like Cyril Richardson could change the whole look of the Cowboys OLine.

    Brandon Scherff, Iowa (6-5, 315, 5.09) - I wonder if he could handle guard

    The best DE in college plays for Nebraska. His name is Randy Gregory. I believe he is draft eligible next year

    I thought Randy Gregory was eligible this year but doubtful to enter. Isn't he a redshirt SO?

    Wish we could find someone dumb like the Raiders last year to trade with for low compensation to move up & snag Clowney
