    I'd be EXTREMELY happy with the Cowboys first 3 picks if they ended up like this mock.


    18. Dallas Cowboys (9-7)
    Top five needs: FS, OT, OG, DC, NT
    The pick: Manny Lawson, DE/LB, NC State
    The Cowboys could go in a number of directions with this pick, but Lawson would be the top option in this scenario. The combination of Lawson and DeMarcus Ware, last year's top pick, would be frightening for opposing quarterbacks.
    Other scenarios:
    • Trade down, targeting offensive line and safety at a better value.
    • Select Wimbley here.
    • Select Whitner here.
    • Select Allen here.



    49. Dallas Cowboys
    +Ko Simpson, DS, South Carolina



    80. Dallas Cowboys
    Jonathan Scott, OT, Texas


    150. Dallas Cowboys
    Kevin Boothe, OG, Cornell



    182. Dallas Cowboys (from Philadelphia)
    Johnny Jolly, DT, Texas A&M



    224. Dallas Cowboys
    Jeff King, TE, Virginia Tech

    Not bad at all...but we would still be razor thin at wideout

    We can pick up a WR in FA after June cuts. To get us by this year but next years draft we need to find a WR.

    The big bonus in that drat would be that we picked up Jolly that late... I was figuring he might go in round 4.

    I love this draft, you could put in Carpenter or Wimbley and I'd feel the same about it.

    Scott has been sliding down the draft probably because of his perceived lack of strength (can be dealt with in our offseason weight conditioning program in 07). In fact Gosselin lists him as only 98th best out of 100 top players. Other OTs who might be available when we draft at 80th are Andrew Whitworth (71), Jeremy Trueblood (77) & Ryan O'Callaghan (83). I've read that Scott can play both LT/RT in NFL ; don't know if same applies to the other 3 OTs. Think we should get an OT who can play both positions. Scott is also a L/S which could save us a position that can be used elsewhere as needed.

    From first to last pick one of the better ones I've seen.
