    Hey, you know how when the Cowboys made their trade up for Claiborne everybody said they were really happy about it but just never figured it was an option so that's why they never really talked about Morris?

    Let's prevent that this time. What player, if any, would you be okay with seeing the Cowboys make another similar trade up for? We're talking losing your 2nd round pick again to get into the top 10.

    Oakland wants to accumulate picks so it could happen. That said I'm against it. Luke Joeckel would fix alot of problems and I think Werner will be a ten year stud. Star L., I am not sure about. Ogletree is the most intriguing guy likely to be gone before we pick. I see a woody SS type.

    I don't see a player in this year's draft like that.

    I dont see a player worth it, just like it wasnt worth it to go after Claiborne. We have many holes to throw away the 2nd round pick again.

    If we see another Demarcus Ware or Aldon Smith type pass rusher in the top 10 I'd be okay with giving up the second rounder to move up and grab him. I think Ware's days as an elite pass rusher are done.

    1. Jarvis Jones
    2, Damontre Moore
    3. Luke Jockel

    only three worth a trade up right now IMO
    but to be able to get one of those three we would have to trade more than a 2nd to get that high

    If we let Spencer walk, I'd gladly trade a 2nd to get Jarvis Jones or Damontrae Moore

    If we keep Spencer, I'd trade up for Star Lotulelei

    I wasn't one of the fans overly happy about trading up last year--didn't hate it, but just saw too much opportunity to do other things.

    Having said that, at this early stage, I'd probably do it for Jockel.

    Jarvis Jones
    Luke Joeckel

    thats it

    tbh i'd rather move down pick up an extra 3 then use it to move back up to bottom round 1 top round 2

    Jones has a neck issue, i think narrow, cpuld fall and be a big risk.

    It's a degenerative issue that could end his career early.

    None. Compared other drafts, this year is weak at the top but loaded in the 2nd. Star Lotulelei is the only Rare player and he will need to be in a rotation to be most effective.

    Next year, I would trade the farm for Jadeveon Clowney.

    yeah I know what it is but the guy can play and it hasn't slowed him yet.
    But if that makes him slip then I would be happy to take him

    Is Jarvis Jones that much better than the other top guys like D. Moore and B. Werner? Is Jones a fit a Spencer's position of 3-4 OLB? At 6-4, Moore and Werner seem more like the prototypes at that position compared to Jones at 6-2.

    I would only trade up for a shot at a TOP pass rusher. No one else. And NOT for a guy with a medical condition

    both Woodley and Harrison are sub 6'3.

    so was adalius thomas and Elvis Dumervill.

    6'2 is the prototype, while guys like Ware and Aldon Smith have exceptional height.

    For me, if we had to, it would be Damontre Moore.
