    Don't like the 1 and 3 picks.

    Burfict at 14 is way too high and he's a walking penalty that doesn't get it

    Weeden is too old.

    I do like the TE a lot.

    Olin kreutz?

    Can I have Andre Carter instead of Julian Peterson ?

    Love the Bruce Irvin pick.


    Ladarius green is an interesting name I haven't seen mocked by anyone yet

    Way, way, way too many free agents.

    The actual number won't be anywhere close to that.

    Highly question the mock.

    Like the draft pretty well, but 7 free agents?? Is that realistic??

    Back to the draft, I think Weeden and Silatolu will go earlier than you're forecasting, but I really like your 7th round pick, the big center out of tiny Elon... good call there, I'm hoping the Boys pursue him if he goes undrafted...

    Among the free agents, I wouldn't mind seeing Johnnie Lee Higgins in a Cowboys uniform, if only because he went to UTEP, and I did too... :D

    Interesting but I'm not a particular fan of several of the FA's or draft licks. Brandon Keith is terrible, didn't even play offensive line on college. Not sure why Hillis would want to play FB either. Also Kreutz retired, he's done.

    I do think Irvin might have something, not sure he can play every down though. I also like Finnegan as a FA.

    Not sure why people say this number of FA's is ridiculous, Jerry said we may be losing lots of players, right? We only have 7 picks, and you just know maybe 4 of those will actually do anything, if that.

    So hard to judge these things in January, but they are fun to think about. Appreciate the effort!

    If Silatolu is available in the fifth rd and the Boys' get him....I'll eat my kids diaper.

    Having said that....he and McClellin are my pet cats, so any mock with either included makes me happy.

    Why would we sign Petyon Hillis?

    Olin Kreutz sucks...and is retired. Did so in midseason when he was about to be benched.

    Is this Free Agency plan circa 2009?

    Also, I am on the Burfict bandwagon but, even if we get a good CB in FA we should draft another one in the first two rounds.

    Like the Peyton Hillis FA pick up.....he could be a good #2/3 if the price is right...He can pound the rock and get those tough yards when needed....

    Just not sure who about Felix..his cap numbers are going up and his health is a major question every year....

    Cowboys need a vet w/a nasty disposition and notches on his belt at the pivot. Someone who can hold this young OL, especially the interior, accountable, especially in big games. If not Kreutz, then Matt Birk or Nick Hardwick.

    And Julian Peterson can play ILB or OLB, Carter is best suited as a 4-3 DE. Not multiple enough for Rob Ryan's scheme.

    Felix is also a FA next season. Hillis would add another playmaking threat at FB, running or receiving. Hillis was also a much more physical lead blocker than Fiametta.

    Guy was injured all of last season. Payton wanted him back, was surprised when he retired. Should be healthy this season, if he is still interested in playing.

    There was speculation that there would be as many as 30 players on the roster who would not return. In any event, Jerry can afford more FA's if he spends wisely. There was great value available, if he was not so blinded by the big names: Cullen Jenkins, Daniel Manning, Brian Waters, etc.

    CB Cortland Finnegan TEN
    DE Adam Carriker WAS
    OLB Robert Mathis IND
    WR Laurent Robinson DAL
    FB Tony Fiamettta DAL
    C Olin Kreutz NO
    OG Brandon Keith AZ
    KR Yamon Figurs / Johnny Lee Higgins
    LB Julian Peterson

    Draft:

    1st LB Vontaze Burfict / DE Quinton Coples
    2nd OLB Bruce Irvin
    3rd CB Coryell Judie
    4th TE Ladarius Green
    5th OG Amini Silatolu
    5th FS Harrison Smith (Trade both 6's to move up)
    7th C Rodney Austin
