    This is based on NFLDraftScout.com prospect rankings, so some players I'd prefer are not available.

    1 (27th) WR Golden Tate, Notre Dame
    Tate fills a need as a return man and also adds some deep speed to our receiver corps, most probably coming out of the slot. Although I like Patrick Crayton, having another speed threat should open up the field more for other players.

    2 (59) OT Vladimir Ducasse, Massachusetts
    Although Ducasse isn't as polished as some of the players who will go before him, he has a tremendous upside and is only limited in his game by a lack of good technique. Probably won't be able to help this year, but might can step in at guard and become a long-term fixture.

    3 (90) ILB Brandon Spikes, Florida
    Forget the 40 time, Spikes can play and will end up being a solid starting ILB in his career. This is the thumper Dallas would enjoy having as Bradie James' successor.

    4 (125) NT Linval Joseph, East Carolina
    Torn on this one between Joseph and Torrell Troup. Joseph, though, seems to have more upside to be more than just a role player. He also has good height to potentially be used as a stuffer at end while keeping Jay Ratliff at his preferred spot at nose. (Could mix and match to find the best combination.)

    6 (195) FB John Conner, Kentucky
    I'll admit to being a sucker for throwback fullbacks, the ones who block so well that everything else is gravy. I think Conner can be more than just a blocking back, but I'm fine if he just ended up being a hole-clearing hammer. If you can't add versatility to the position, then be great at the one thing you provide.

    7 (234) OT J'Marcus Webb, West Texas A&M
    Another offensive lineman with a lot of upside. Webb has shown some promise that is worthy of a late-round pick.

    How bad is it going to be in the chat room when Connor gets picked by another team? I practically see him in every mock draft on this board.

    I'm not going to be hurt if Dallas doesn't get him. I think there are some other interesting fullback options out there, and it isn't an absolute necessity that Dallas even draft one. I think the Cowboys really like what John Phillips did coming out of the backfield last year.

    I picked him because he was one of two prospects I liked rated between 195 and 234.

    I'm not arguing picking him. It is just you see his name all the time, and I'm just wondering how many people have him as one of their draft pets.

    I don't like the idea of taking a WR in round 1, but if Tate's at the top of the Dallas board when the pick's up, so be it.

    The rest looks great to me, and very close to who will be available and what Jerry & Co. will do. I hope we see a DB or two when it all pans out, though.
