    Holmes


    I like our backfield situation as is but we have nothing to look to the future to at WR.

    but there's a guy I would like to have more than either...

    can't
    think
    of
    his
    name... :(

    Neither, best OL there. Sign Reggie Wayne and draft Landry in the 2nd.

    Does anyone else think Wayne might be the next Alvin Harper?

    I don't know what round he's going but I want Devin Hester Miami . He Instantly upgrades special teams. TT cannot Juke a Statue on the field. We need playmakers!!!

    I believe TT set a Cowboys record for most yards on KO returns.

    We have way bigger holes to fill than special teams.

    But how many times was he tackled by the Kicker or a hash mark? I'm not saying to use a first on Hester but he also plays DB.

    Was it a record or a just a rookie record?

    I don't know if he'll be as bad as Alvin Harper post-Dallas, but I don't think he'll be a 1,200-yard, 10-touchdown guy without Manning, James and Harrison around him. He's an impressive player, but not as good as the contract he'll probably receive. You mentioned Harper...also reminds me of the Price situation when he got that big deal in Atlanta.

    Dale, I dont know if it was a record or anything but TT was tied for 9th in kick returns in the entire NFL this year and a couple guys in front of him only returned kicks half the time so their average is inflated

    Amazing how much Harper dropped off....AND..with Irvin on the other side, Harper made some huge catches and always made great circus catches....

    I was at the game when he came back to Dallas (vs the Redskins)...kinda sad to see how much he had lost...he was SLOW...stiff looking...just bad.

    If I had to decide between the two, I'd probably take Holmes but neither is who I would take if I had my rathers. It's interesting, Holmes is not a 1# WR IMO. Holmes, IMO, is Joey Galloway. Last season, he only had 3 big receiving games (100 yrds or more). Not saying he's not valuable by any means. Only that he's not the go to guy that I think many might be looking for. As for me, I think we need a speed WR with big play capability so I'm OK with just that. LeDale White is an interesting player. He's from Colorado so I have actually kinda followed him, to a degree, since HS. He was recruited heavely by everybody in the West. This is a back that I believe will do well in the Pros. I could see him quickly becoming the feature back in a Pro offense. He's an every down back that can pick up the blitz, catch the ball, move the chains. I would not be unhappy if we choose either one but neither would probably be my first choice.

    White without a doubt. Why pass up one of the three or four best players in the draft at 18.

    Not a need but he's going to have a much better pro career than Bush. Think Jamal Lewis without the shady side.
