    So I've seen some/heard some talking about Demarcus Lawrence in the 1st round. I'd heard it on the radio earlier in the week, but then on the Cowboys draft show Bugler said he'd be ok with Lawrence at 16, if we got wiped.

    Any others hearing or seeing some guys start to settle into a place? Either up or down?

    • The QB's are a huge wildcard I have no clue where they will go, but it sounds like 4 in the 1st very early 2nd with Savage rising extremely fast to be in 2nd tier.
    • Roby seems to be climbing just below Fuller, probably pushing Verrett into the 2nd
    • Moses, Bitonio late 1st top of the 2nd now, Juwan James moving up, Cowboys interest in Mewhort, Turner and Yanky sliding fast.
    • Easley I think will be bottom of the 1st top of the 2nd, too much talent.
    • Donald looks to be creeping closer and closer to the top ten, I can't see the Giants not taking him if he does get out of the top ten. Either way he's a pipe dream for us at 16.
    • Barr could fall some, but someone will love that explosion and I just don't see him getting to us.

    I think we are going to be looking at Ealy or Martin, I just am not sold on Ealy, I've been all over the map with him can someone sell me on him?

    Seems like every single guy the Cowboys would have an interest in is shooting up the board! :D

    At this point someone that would have been selected in the 3rd round is now a consideration in round 1.

    Holds up remarkably well versus the run for his size.

    Yah but the guy I think Jerry is secretly interested in JFB, I hear is falling.

    Every year at this time there are so many "rising up the board" players that if added together there would be 100 players in the 1st round.

    At this time of year they expand the first round exponentially before the draft truncates it. :) Must be 50-60 players in the 1st right now.

    Boy it certainly seems that way!

    And I would bet it's only going to get worse by the time the 8th rolls around... Gosh almighty there'll be 150 guys considered "1st round talents" at that point.

    And every year there is a surprise slider that puts a good player at your pick. Maybe not a fan favorite but a player that is worthy of the pick.

    Still believe Jerrigan, Martin, Ealy, or Shazer will be our pick.

    Do agree that Donald and Barr will be gone.

    Interesting. I've seen a few things that have Ealy falling, not rising. Same with Jernigan. CBS Now has Ealy as their 35th rated prospect with a late first/early 2nd round projection.

    I'm surprised to see they now have Tom Savage with a 1st/2nd grade as well, he was a 7th rounder on their rankings not that long ago.

    No no no, Demarcus Lawrence at 16? This is ridiculous, draft a WR or a Oline or whatever, I don't care if we don't take a DE in the top 4 rounds but don't reach 2 rounds just to take a DE.

    Savage a in the first round is just stupid, probably worse than Ponder in the first.

    Who says our interest in Mewhort, Turner (which one?) and Yankey is "sliding fast?"

    I certainly wouldn't consider any of those guys "sliders"
