    2(51) Jairus Byrd CB Oregon
    3(69) Jonathan Luigs C Arkansas
    4a(97) Kraig Urbik G Wisconsin
    4b(113) Lawrence Sidbury OLB Richmond
    5a(148) Brandon Underwood S Cincinnati
    5b(158) Sebastion Vollmer T Houston
    6(184) Chris Baker NT Hampton
    7a(193) Lee Robinson ILB Alcorn State
    7b(210) Sammy Stroughter WR Oregon State

    same players available, I'd go:

    2(51) Duke Robinson G Oklahoma
    3(69) Victor Harris CB Virginia Tech
    4a(97) Trevor Canfield G Cincinnati
    4b(113) Mike Thomas WR Arizona
    5a(148) Scott McKillop ILB Pitt
    5b(158) Chris Clemons S Clemson
    6(184) Hunter Cantwell QB Louisville
    7a(193) Roy Miller NT Texas
    7b(210) Bruce Johnson CB Miami

    Robinson(6-5/329 5.32 40 time) is a steal at 51. He immediately improves depth and would be groomed to be the starting left guard as early as 2010. "Macho" Harris(5-11/198 4.68 40 time) is also a steal in the 3rd. I would draft him to play the "Star" position the team talked about Orlando Scandrick playing. I know we already drafted a guard but at pick 97, I felt Canfield(6-5/307 5.30 40 time) was better than any available center or tackle. Thomas(5-8/195 4.30 40 time) helps the team as a punt returner and slot receiver. His selection also means the Stanback experiment may be coming to an end. McKillop(6-1/244 4.72 40 time) provides depth at ILB and should be ready to step in a few years when Keith Brooking retires. They always say you can't teach speed and Clemons(6-0/208 4.38 40 time) and Johnson(5-10/170 4.49 40 time) have that. They will both get a chance to contribute on Special Teams and reserve roles in the secondary. Cantwell(6-5/235 5.22 40 time) will have the benefit of backing up Romo and Kitna and could develop into a solid NFL quarterback down the road. The last time we took a Defensive Tackle from a major program in the 7th round it worked out just fine. Miller(6-1/310 4.98 40 time) should compete with journeymen Junior Siavii and Tim Anderson to back up Jay Ratliff.

    I went back and forth between Urbik and Canfield. I just go back to Canfield's mean streak. He reminds me of Colombo.

    I also like Sidbury but I like Mike Thomas a lot more.

    As far as Straughter, he makes Stanback look durable. Talent-wise he's be quality in the 7th round. I just doubt he survives a training camp.

    I'd take Stroughter if available in the 7th in a sec. The guy has first round talent. Guy was a pain in the arse for Pac 10 coaches. You got the USC logo so you know first hand this guy has got skills.

    He had some issues in 07 and then got injured. He came back and had a solid 08 campaign. I don't see anything that says injury prone like Stanback though.

    Neither Luigs or Canfield fit Houck's scheme.


    If Canfield can put on 20-25 lbs, his mean streak would serve him well on this team. Luigs is always going to be a finesse player, doesn't matter how big he gets.

    First off, I like this draft. Hoping we draft a QB late and think we need a WR earlier. Good news is, I think he's on your list. +1 on Stroughter.

    This guy is not injury prone. He had a very rough personal stretch, was diagnosed with depression, got treated, and had a very good year in 2008. Agree with RESIN8- he was dominant in the Pac-10 when on the field and I watched him abuse my Sun Devils in 2006 and 2008.

    I'm much higher on him and looking for his updated 40-time from his pro day. If it's good, he's going to be taken in the 4-5 range. He's a well-liked and dynamic leader, he returns punts and he is exactly what we are looking for.

    Here's a a clip and really good article on him: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/writers/the_bonus/05/14/stroughter/

    If Loadholt and Robinson are gone and Sidbury is there, I could see Dallas taking him at 51. Bunting rates him as a 2nd-3rd round talent. His 10 yard spilt was above good. He would give Dallas 3 legit pass rushers on the outside.
