    Hmmmm. Tamba Hali rated above Manny Lawson and no back-lash yet?

    You're all a bunch of Gosselin homers!

    If this is true, then we could wait and get Carpenter in the second.

    IMHO that is the gamble in this draft for the Cowboys. Do we trade down to still get our man and if so, how far are we willing to go? If we could move down 7-8 spots and pick up a mid to late 3rd that would be great. Carpenter would probably still be there and we get another good player on the first day. :D

    Kiper keeps having us going after Jason Allen but this raking fairly puts him where he belongs #5.

    What? He's always been rated above Lawson. He's a true DE. Lawson is an undersized DE.

    That's because he's ranked #5 among CBs. If he placed him among S then he would be at least in the top 3.

    It's always a safe bet that Jerry will be looking to move down and add a pick or two when selecting in the mid to late first round.

    If Carpenter is our target, we could well trade out of the first round altogether, IMO.

    If another team sees a player they want dearly and is willing to dance.

    Ernie Sims and Chad Greenway over Bobby Carpenter?

    People everywhere on this board have been saying that Greenway sucks, and now nobody is saying anything about it.

    Could this be bc Bobby was injured? Is that why he's ranked so low among OLBs?

    Sims is undersized to me. Greenway has mixed reviews. Carpenter would make a great selection.

    It's all just opinion. There's no clear answer as to which is the best prospect. I thought it was strange that he ranked him #5, but hey, maybe he's on to something most everyone else isn't.

    Ernie Sims is a good LB. I just don't think he has the size to be a 3-4 linebacker.

    I like Carpenter a lot more as a 3-4 backer. I think Greenway is overrated, but if I needed another Derrick Brooks in a Tampa Cover 2 type scheme, I'd give more consideration to Greenway than Carpenter.
