    1. No thanks, not an elite athlete and lacks any great pass rush moves. Will struggle to get to the Qb as often as he did in college, and most likely wont be able to be used in coverage at all. I would take Ingram, Mercilus, or Curry at some point over Ingram if we are looking for a pure pass rusher.

    2. Unless he tests extremely well, I think he will be a reach here. He more than likely will fall into the late 2nd round/early 3rd. Claiborne, Dre, Dennard, Jenkins, Hosely, and Minnifield are all better prospects in my opinion, and I have a hard time believing that 1 of them wont be available at #45(thats if we dont take 1 in the 1st).

    Just because we talked to these guys doesn't mean they are #1 and 2 on our draft boards.

    I hate the Upshaw pick. Rather just resign Spencer and use 14 to fill an O-line or D-line hole. Spencer to Upshaw is a lateral move at best (I actually think it would be a drop off talent wise). I'd rather keep Spencer and greatly improve our O-line with DeCastro.

    I like the Boykin pick, but I think 2nd may be too high for him given his size. We'll see. I'd love him in the 3rd and maybe in the 2nd if he keeps testing out well.

    I'm all about drafting CBs. I'm fine with draft 5 of them.

    ANYTHING to ensure that Alan Ball is never seen in a Cowboys uniform again. I will consider it an enormous failure if that guy ever plays another down for us.

    I hope you have plenty of kleenex there because several of us would be weeping if those are the Cowboy's first two selections.

    On NFL network, they were comparing Upshaw to Jerome Harrison and LaMarr Woodley.
