    I've probably looked at this page everyday since we lost to the Redskins and I know a lot of you frequent users have done the same. I've studied the draft heavily for like the last 8 yrs and I honestly think this is our year to build a great foundation for the future with the depth this draft provides. With that in mind I've got a few questions and I'd like to see what your opinion is.

    1) How far would you be willing to trade down in the first if we get wiped out at 18? Would a trade with San Fran for 31 & 34 plus a third for our 1st and 2nd suffice?

    2) If Tavon Austin was the best available at 18 would you draft him?

    3) If Eddie Lacy was there when we pick at 47 would you take him?

    4) Say we get a 3-tech like Richardson at 18 and at 47 John Hankins was available would you double dip at a position?

    5) Does taking Vaccaro at 18 scare you?

    1. I would trade down 7-10 spots for a third

    2.Yes

    3.Not sure, we need speed at RB everyone else wants a powerback. Lacy is not very fast but he might do well in a zone blocking scheme. I don't like the speed of the RBs in this draft or size of the really fast ones.

    4.No I would get a 4-3 NT in rounds 4-5-6-7 FA

    5.Yes he might be a solid safety never a play maker, and has medium bust potential, can't risk a 1st on that.

    1. If you are looking for a premium OT then no. If you are ok with a second rd interior OL or a second tier OT in the first then yes you are ahead of the game.

    2. no; we need a S, OL, DL more

    3. don't know where he is on our board. Depends on who is available at the time as well. I have him as a upper 2nd rd pick for a team that's looking for a RB. I think we should not use a 2nd on a RB this year. Depends on who is available though.

    4. no; take a NT later

    5. no; take a S in the 2nd or 3rd.

    1) I would consider anything that makes sense. I would like to add picks this year, but I dont want to move any of next years picks. Only way to do that is trade down.

    2) I'd consider Austin who is a matchup nightmare and huge upgrade on special teams. I think it is going to be a long year regardless and he would at least bring some excitement.

    3) No I would not draft Lacy at 47. Unless they are true difference makers (Peterson), backs are a commodity.

    4) I'd only take Hankins if was he carried a first round grade and was by far the highest ranked player left on their board.

    5) Yes I believe has a fairly high bust potential. In a perfect world I'd love a beast D Lineman at 18 (Richardson).

    I would hope we could get much more than just a 3rd if we trade down 7-10 picks.

    1) Too early to tell.

    2) No.

    3) There is no way I draft a RB in round two, unless I believe that position is the only hole on my roster.

    4) It depends on who else is available. But I might do it, yes. I have a first round grade on Hankins.

    5) No, it doesn't "scare" me. I'm just against it.

    A fair trade with SF would be:
    Dallas' 18 for SF's 31, 61, 157

    A decent trade with Minn would be:
    Dallas' 18th for Minn's 25, 83 and maybe a late 7th

    1) Consider yes, the SF deal, No.
    2) No
    3) Depends on whom else is available, but probably not considering the needs of the team, IMO.
    4) Depends on whom else is available, but probably not considering the needs of the team, IMO.
    5) Nope doesn't scare me because I wouldn't take him till the 4th round either way.

    Depending on who was available, I'd seriously consider trading our 18 and 80 for the 49er's 31 and 34.

    That's absurd and San Fran would never go for that. Heck, we are still coming way ahead value-wise in the scenario I presented. San Fran could nearly get into the top ten under your scenario.

    Hey, my bad,
    I was assuming SF's 31st and 61st for our 18th.
    I stand corrected.

    Oh, yeah, that makes more sense. I'd be crying tears of joy if he 49ers gave us 31 and 34 for 18.

    You do present an interesting point though. 31 + 61 + a seventh is nearly equal value to 18. Hmmm...

    I think I might prefer Minnesota's 25th and 83rd and maybe a 7th for Dallas' 18th.

    Dropping all the way to 31 gets really dicey on my board. I cross 2-3 tiers from 18 to 31--which is a big talent gap. Players always fall though...you never know.

    If we wanted Oline and one fell to us at 18, we for sure couldn't trade down b/c there are three teams almost right after us that want help there. But if what we want is gone, I say trade out of there if the value is right.

    The good news is that there are a few teams vying for CB and WR help that may even trade ahead of Dallas. That would help greatly.

    Honestly, this team needs a lot, so I don't see how they would not have some very good options at 18. I would prefer they stay where they are.

    So hard to answer. It really depends on what else is there. This team has too many holes to ignore unless he is just light years higher on the draft board than the next best player.

    Probably, yes. Until Murray shows he can be healthy for a full season, then Dallas cannot overlook this guy in round 2.

    Nah, can't do it with so many holes to fill.

    Nope. If he is at the top of their draft board, then take him.
