    Blaylock as the third best guard. Many people will not be happy here. Has Meachem before Bowe and Jarrett, too.

    Lord please let Dallas have the wisdom and common sense to either draft Jarvis Moss or Anthony Spencer... Or a guy like Lamar Woodley in the 2nd round..

    :pray2:

    If you tell me Sidney Rice or Jason Hill will be there in the 2nd round, I'd prefer to address WR then. I can't believe Woodley is ranked so low. I think he's way better than Jarvis Moss.

    I beginning to think Ginn being there at 22 is a pipe dream.

    This probably couldn't have any less relevance but I am eating fried chicken from the restaurant owned by the mother of the the number 8 safety on the list, Gerald Alexander. Good stuff.

    You know Goose, he's going strongly on measurables... Especially on the heels of that recent article. I'm sure he's penalizing Woodley for his lack of height.

    I think Manny Ramirez and Michael Bush are pretty low, too.

    Before this is done, I think that corner from Cal-Poly will be in the top-10.

    Based upon this, it looks like Ginn to Dallas is a pipe dream. Too bad.

    I think we would have a pretty realistic shot at these guys and I wouldn't mind having them...some are probably destined to be FA.

    I just read an article that Gosselin has the best rankings over the last three years.

    Seems pretty high for Chris Henry at runningback. Must be measurables alone.
