    Yeah, I'm going there. In your opinion, what are our top 3 to 5 draft priorities, and if you could have your way, who would you take at that position?

    For Me:

    1. Cornerback - Patrick Peterson, LSU
    Honorable Mention - Rahim Moore, UCLA

    2. Running Back - LaMichael James, Oregon
    Honorable Mention - Jacquizz Rogers, Oregon State

    3. Offensive Guard - Barrett Jones, Alabama
    Honorable Mention - Justin Boren, Ohio State

    Lamichael James is a sophomore. Would much rather have demps from florida anyway. At safety- deunta Williams or jeron Johnson. Corner- Patrick peterson or prince.... Rahim Moore is a safety and he hasn't loomed that impressive at all this year

    I would like to see 2 of the first three used on the o-line . D-line will have to be considered depending on resigning Spears and Bowen. Might not be a bad time to trade down from the first and try to pick up more second and third round picks.

    1. Cornerback
    2. Quarterback....
    3. Linemen



    QB: No its not Romo hate, but we look really far from being a great team and he will be 31 at the start of next year

    We need 2 OL and a CB in any order the first three rounds.

    I doubt any of us are sold on the depth at ILB.

    Brooking is fast approaching the end of his accomplished career. B. James has been at it a while. Even if Lee stays healthy and develops into a player, there isn't anybody else who inspires much confidence.

    So if your BPA in one of the early rounds is an ILB, I say do it (rather than reaching for another need pick).

    I've got no particular names in mind.

    Do you actually see QB as a bigger need than rebuilding the o-line ?

    1. OL
    2. CB
    3. S

    whats the toughest position to Draft besides QB

    LT

    I say we go after a LT or we fall in the top 10

    we can pick up a FS a CB an DE in the later rounds

    I actually think the team is set at LT. Free is only 26 and has been playing very well there.

    I think it's a mistake to try to get cute and draft a LT and move free back to the right side. Free is a natural LT. I was surprised at how well he played on the right side, but I don't want to move him back.

    C, G and RT should be the line positions of focus.

    1st round - CB, S, or ILB
    2nd round - best RT or RG available
    3rd round - C
    4th round - CB or S (whichever one you didn't get in the 1st)
    7th round - best kicker available that can kickoff too. If we're gonna develop another young kicker, I'd at least want it to be someone who is polished from college or a Lou Groza winner

    OL, OL, OL, and OL.

    if not any of those choices, I'd go with S or CB. Secondary is paper thin right now.

    Other than that, I don't care, I think our team is pretty solid minus those couple of areas.

    I think Phil Costa fights for that right as early as next training camp.

    If we continue crashing and burning, and endup 4-12 as the "realists" predict, yes. Trade Romo in a mcnabbish trade and rebuild if thats what happens.

    You do not trade franchise QB's.

    Ever.

    Fair point, but if we have to go through a rebuilding process, thats a year or two atleast, by then Romos 33.
