I vote we never mention this Brace character again
Ratliff will be best used as a DE now that our depth there is depleted. His pass rushing skills can be best utilized there.
Phillips had Jamal Williams in San Diego and Pat Williams in Buffalo, both 320 lb + guys. Don't tell me he can't use a big NT in his 3-4 defense. You've really just become a broken record...
better value can be had later
I'm not arguing over an overrated prospect anymore
The remaining ILB's would all be reaches at 51...The real value would only be S and DT
I'm glad the Cowboys had two number one picks last year and found three players after round one. This draft is bad, imo. The value for Dallas is going to be found on the offensive and defensive lines, and the team needs ILB and Safety help really bad. If Dallas had that 20th pick in round one, I would trade down.
It's a catch 22.
don't forget OG, OT and DE/OLB
BPA that fills a need be it SS, DL, LB or other.
two words: DUKE ROBINSON..he'll beat out Kosier in camp and release Holland because he's counting too much against the cap for a 3rd string guy
BPA at S,ILB,OL
OL, OLB or DE should have value as well. While I am not a fan of taking Brace with the first pick, if he is the BPA, then I will not complain.
Otherwise, Jerry needs to take the best blue chipper that falls out of the first.
We need a safety who can play in space and make plays on the ball. Hamlin certainly isnt it.
We probably will need a starting DE, and its very possible we could get one at 51.
It's possible they could find a quality starter at LG at 51.
So I say none of the above in your selections.
Give me a safety at #51. I like Brace, but I think he's not a value at 51 and I think there's a good chance he'll be there at #69. The only real teams I can see taking brace before we pick in rd 3 are Pittsburgh, Miami or KC.
I doubt Pitt, they have 2 studs at NT already in Hampton and Chris Hoke
