18. Dallas Cowboys (9-7) Top five needs: FS, OT, CB, NT, OG The pick: +Donte Whitner, S, Ohio State The Cowboys would love to trade down to get a better value for an offensive tackle such as Auburn's Marcus McNeill. Drafting Holmes is also a possibility if he's available here, but coach Bill Parcells doesn't like to draft wide receivers in the first round and the team already has a load of money locked up in that position with the recent acquisition of Terrell Owens. So, if the Cowboys are stuck with this pick, Whitner makes the most sense. The team needs an intelligent, speedy free safety to complement SS Roy Williams and Whitner is the ideal match. He emerged as a true playmaker during his junior season at Ohio State and his 40-yard dash time of 4.38 seconds helped catapult him into first-round consideration.
