    MOBILE, Ala. -- We're leaving the Senior Bowl after three days of nice, cool weather, and here's some notes:

    1. The Cowboys are doing their due diligence regarding the quarterback position. I don't believe the Cowboys will draft one, but they did interview Oklahoma State's Brandon Weeden on Sunday. Jerry Jones said if the team picks up a quarterback, it has to be a veteran who can move quickly in the offense. Weeden's age, 28, means he's a little more mature than some rookie quarterbacks and he picked up the Washington Redskins offensive terminology pretty quickly during practices here.

    2. Finding a cornerback is a must for the Cowboys. When Jones says there will be new faces on the roster at that position, he's telling the truth. Alan Ball, Frank Walker, Terence Newman and quite possibly Abram Elam might be gone from the 2011 roster. The Cowboys interviewed troubled corner Janoris Jenkins, but one corner to watch is Georgia's Brandon Boykin. He's 5-9 1/4 and 183 pounds. He plays physical and can play the slot and outside. Boykin can also return kicks and punts.

    I'd move on. We need a youth movement on defense.

    I saw him in the Outback BOwl: kid is a real talent: IF he's there at 14 should we snatch him? I think we should draft the best available CB or DT.....then try like heck to sign 2 olinemen in free agency: a guard and a center preferrably. We just haven't had much success in drafting INTERIOR olinemen for whatever reason. THEN address ILB, Safety,DE and backup qb with rounds 2-7. Best plan I can come up with..........

    really hard to draft a cb who is 5'9" at 14.

    i believe he is a legit r2 target tho possibly after we draft.

    2" taller


    drafted 7th.

    I just wouldn't draft Boykin at 14. Surprised Jayron Hosley isn't mentioned as a first rounder.

    I would love Boykin in round 2, no way at 14.

    I really hope this team isn't afraid to move on from Brooking. Don't worry about being nice to him, it's not like he's a future Ring of Honor candidate trying to retire with them. He had 3 years here, time to move on. What's the point of keeping him in a "reduced" role when we know he's running on empty instead of giving that spot to someone who could use a chance to prove that he's got something for the future?

    He just ripped his own teammates' talent level on NFL Network.

    It's time to move one. He's part of the problem, too. I don't think he returns.
