    Lets say we find lots of depth for both the Oline and Dline from the combine and pro days. Would you take Cordarelle Patterson if he fell to 18? He is a true talent at the WR position and he would make our receiving corp look elite.

    No. I would trade back with the Vikings, so they could take him. We need top qualify OL and DL, not more receivers.

    Stop drafting 4th - 7th round players and hope they develop.

    There is a reason SF has a good line, they have 3 1st rounders playing the OL.

    Yea, but they also have 3 first round recievers (Crabtree, Jenkins, Moss) and a first round TE. I know you can make the argument that two of those players have been obsolete this season.

    I said in another post that in 3 years when we look back at the 2013 draft, Cordarrelle Patterson might be the best player drafted.

    I would only consider it if Warmack and Cooper are gone. Those are the only 2 must-have players for me that could be at #18.

    I put a higher value on OLinemen over DLinemen because of the percentage of snaps played. The DLinemen are normally in a rotation; whereas, the OLinemen normally play 100% of the offensive snaps.

    Jenkins doesn't count. He doesn't do anything

    I've always wondered whether front offices takes this into account when determining positional value. Seems like keeping more skilled players on the field for longer periods of time should be obvious.

    Wouldn't hate it. Doing so would mean releasing Miles, and hopefully landing a G or T in FA or via trade.

    However, I think if he falls, a trade back with someone who really covets him makes a lot of sense.

    They should take the highest rated player on the board, the scouts have actually been good at spotting talent. If somebody offers them a deal that blows em away, they should take the deal. In general though, I believe this team needs more bodies, not less.

    Only if he was the best player on our board and I couldn't trade out.

    Good point about Austin. They could put the 6M in salary cap savings into a Lineman; therefore, partially offsetting the fact that they didn't take one with #18.

    The problem is that they would need to sign the Free Agent Lineman before the draft.

    They didnt' draft Moss, so you can't count him.

    They drafted Jenkins the year after they went to an NFC Championship game and the OL was established. When we get our OL established, I will be all for using another 1st rounder on a skill position.

    Until then, no WR/TE/RB in the first 2 rounds. They are all a dime a dozen.

    Right. It would only work if the Cowboys decided that WR was a priority, and designated Miles as a June 1 cut.
