    Alright here me out, we've mocked and mocked and mocked. We've discussed the first,second,third,fourth,fifth,sixth,seventh and even trade possibilities. Lets look past the draft...

    Maybe it's just me, but I almost enjoy the Undrafted Free Agent signing more than the draft itself. I think it is because I don't have to wait for the cowboys "turn". We can just pin our ears back, and there is little to no negotiations. The news starts flying in, and we all circle 8-10 players and cross our fingers.

    I remember Mark Herzlich, Deunta Williams, Burton(CB from UNC), and a few other "prized" guys last year.

    I don't know why, but I am almost more excited about that then the actual draft. I know that usually they don't pan out, but it's so much fun guessing who the next Romo/Austin/Victor Cruz(sigh) will be.

    So does anybody have any bold predictions on who may be there? Will a guy like Vontaze Burfict who was widely thought to be a 1st or 2nd round pick at point, now go undrafted? Does a Kellen Moore go undrafted due to his size and average arm strength?What about a Donte Paige Moss from UNC? Who do you think will be the top guy available, and what will make them go undrafted?

    And Mark Herzlich turned out to be a dang gone ball player too :banghead:

    Hos was on the money with that one.

    I tell you what, if Donta Paige-Moss goes undrafted, we should pounce pounce pounce. UDFA is absolutely no bust factor, but Paige-Moss has HUGE boom.

    I love the UDFA period too but until I see what's available it's hard to talk much about it.

    But immediately after the draft I'll have 10-15 names I'll be hoping for.

    Maybe Aaron Corp, Matt Daniels and T.J. Graham.

    (I'd be happy if we drafted the first two.)

    haha I know, I always have a list of guys that I am crossing my fingers that we sign right away.

    But part of the fun is being bold and saying who, despite good measurables or game tape, won't get drafted.

    After seeing Romo & Austin blossom, you'd cant sleep on UDFA's if you're a Cowboys fan.

    Nice list. I think Neiko gets drafted in the 6th or so. 6'3 safety who played CB at point, and played in the SEC. I think somebody grabs him. If not, I'd be ecstatic to sign him.

    i think part of the fun of the UDFA process is that there isn't one source that is giving you the names....you actually have to look around and beat the internet bushes so to speak to find out the signings early on. Sure...2-3 days later you will know all their names, but it is very exciting to hope we can get "x" player after the draft, scour the sites and hear rumors and then wait for that confirmation that we did in fact get the guy.

    Not a big deal. It wasn't a very long thread, but I thought I'd link to it since I posted in that thread.

    There was a player from Wyoming, a WR I think. He was a hoax. It was some dirty sexual innuendo and nobody verified it, and appeared on tons of websites lol.

    I think Drew Brees is bigger than Kellen and has a stronger arm. Kellen looked like a high school player with the rest of the Senior bowl QBs. He reminds me a lot more of Chase Daniel than Drew Brees.

    I'd spend our 7th on Keenum just to make sure we got him. Nice list also.

    My priority guys would be:

    OL: Markus Zusevics, Iowa // Derrick Dennis, Temple
    RB: Bobby Rainey, W Kentucky
    WR: Dale Moss, S Dakota St // Patrick Edwards, Houston
    DE: Matt Conrath, Virginia
    LB: Sammy Brown, Houston // Scott Solomon, Rice

    If Janzen Jackson (FS/CB) or Cliff Harris (CB/PR) go undrafted, they'd be prime targets as well. At that point, I'm fine with bringing in a knucklehead or two.

    Albion cornerback Chris Greenwood – 6-1, 189 and likely headed to safety at the next level. He may have jumped up to fifth round with Pro Day showing last month (4.34 40, vertical jump of 43 inches and a broad jump of 11-foot-2.)

    What, only four Longhorns?? I'm ashamed of you, turn in your Horns...

    Unless, of course, the middle rounds of your draft feature Keenan Robinson, Kheeston Randall and Emmanuel Acho... :D
