Cowboys like the Packers did, a few years back, Trade back up in 1st round, either with Eagles or New England, and get Gabe Carmini OT, who falls due to injury and not being able to play in senior bowl. Cowboys give up their 4th rounder to get OT Gabe Carmini 1st Rounder Trade back up: Offensive Tackle | Wisconsin | SR Gabe Carimi Height: 6-7 | Weight: 327 | 40-Time: 5.30 Official Bio Strengths: • Prototypical size with long arms and large hands • Solid in pass pro with nimble feet to slide / mirror • Fairly stout at point and gets good push in run game • Decent strength and delivers a violent initial punch • Polished technician with great hand use and footwork • Intelligent with excellent instincts and awareness • Very tough and willingly plays through pain / injuries • Mature, hard working and is respected by teammates • A ton of experience against top-notch competition Last name is pronounced "kuh-REE-mee" --- A four-year starter and team captain for the Badgers --- Named 1st Team All-Big Ten in 2009 and 2010 --- 1st Team All-American in 2010 --- Won the 2010 Outland Trophy as the nation's top interior lineman --- The Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year in 2010 --- A civil and environmental engineering major who was named Academic All-Big Ten four straight years --- Very committed to Jewish faith and fasts during Yom Kippur --- Missed three games with a right knee injury in 2008 --- Missed half of fall camp in 2009 with a right knee injury --- Suffered left shoulder (AC joint) injury in 2009 --- Actually replaced Joe Thomas, the #3 overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, at left tackle in Madison --- Overrated blocker with all the tools to be a starter at the next level but is not the elite blindside protector and early first rounder that some have made him out to be. 2nd Round 40th spot; Cowboys trade down to San Francisco, since QB Locker is there, and get the 49ers 4th rounder and a 7th rounder With 49ers 45th pick Cowboys take Ben Ijalana OT/OG -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Offensive Tackle | Villanova | SR Ben Ijalana Height: 6-4 | Weight: 320 | 40-Time: 5.36 Official Bio Strengths: • Excellent bulk w/ long arms and large hands • Superb athleticism, quickness and agility • Fantastic strength and extremely powerful • Stout at the point of attack and can anchor • Gets an outstanding push in the run game • Nimble feet to slide laterally and mirror • Displays the ability to recover when beat • Stuns opponents with violent initial punch • Capable of locking on and sustaining blocks • Range to work in space and at second level • Tough and will play through pain / injuries • Hard worker and still has considerable upside • Extremely durable with a ton of experience Last name is pronounced "EYE-JA-LAWN-A" --- Was a four-year starter (53 consecutive games) for the Wildcats --- Named 1st Team All-CAA in 2008, 2009 and 2010 --- A 1st Team FCS All-American as a junior and senior --- Helped lead Villanova to the FCS National Championship as a junior --- Parents are Nigerian-born --- Was also a champion wrestler in high school --- Primarily a soccer player as a youth and didn't begin focusing on football until the age of 14 --- Played left tackle entire college career but could also project to right tackle or perhaps move inside to offensive guard at the next level --- Similar in many ways to Vladimir Ducasse, who was selected in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the New York Jets out of Massachusetts --- Would arguably be in the first round conversation if he was an inch taller and hailed from a "big-time" program --- Still raw and will have to adjust to a leap in competition but is clearly the premier small school sleeper in this class and has the talent / physical tools to be a starter in the NFL. 3rd Rounder of Cowboys Stefen Wisniewski Height: 6-3 | Weight: 306 | 40-Time: 5.30 Official Bio Strengths: • Extremely smart with elite instincts and awareness • Polished technician with great hand use and footwork • A top-notch understanding of positioning and angles • Intense, competitive and plays with a nasty demeanor • Quick with nice balance and able to adjust and recover • Strong with a wide base and stout at the point of attack • Great toughness and gets a nice push in the run game • Tenacious and will lock on and doggedly sustains blocks • Ability to pull, play in space and reach the second level • Versatile and is capable of playing multiple positions • A hard worker and leader with outstanding bloodlines • Durable with a ton of experience versus top competition A three-year starter and team captain for the Nittany Lions --- Named 2nd Team All-Big Ten in 2008 and 1st Team in 2009 and 2010 --- Also garnered some All-American notice in 2010 --- Father, Leon, was a defensive lineman at Penn St. and a 2nd Round pick in 1982 NFL Draft, playing four seasons with the Baltimore / Indianapolis Colts --- Uncle, Steve, was a two-time 1st-Team All-American at Penn St. and an eight-time All-Pro offensive guard during NFL career with the Oakland / Los Angeles Raiders --- A secondary education major who excelled in the classroom with a near-4.0 GPA and was a three-time Academic All-American --- Could project to either center or offensive guard and has extensive experience at both --- Certainly isn't very flashy or the most impressive physical specimen but compensates with first-rate intangibles and there is virtually no chance he won't be successful at the next level --- Will win a starting job and enjoy a long NFL career Note, If Stefen is gone, Cowboys take Center Kristofer O’Dowd USC 6-5 300 5.20 The Cowboys now have filled their offensive line for years to come, with 3 key offensive linemen. I know its alittle too much possibly, but wanted to have one draft fixing our offensive line. 3rd Rounder from Miami cowboys take S Deunte Williams who falls due to injury. Deunta Williams North Carolina 6-2 215 4.55 4th Rounder, Cowboys Trade up alittle and take QB Colin Kaepernick Nevada 6-6 225 4.43 A four-year starter and team captain for the Wolfpack --- Named 1st Team All-WAC and WAC Offensive Player of the Year in 2010 --- Also ran for 4,090 yards (6.9 avg.) and 59 touchdowns --- Only player in college football history to rush for 4,000 yards and throw for 9,000 yards in a career --- Only player to ever rush for 1,000 yards and throw for 2,000 yards in three consecutive seasons --- Broke Ian Johnson's Western Athletic Conference record for career rushing touchdowns --- Tied Eric Crouch's NCAA record for most career rushing touchdowns by a quarterback --- Selected by the Chicago Cubs in the 43rd Round of the 2009 MLB Amateur Draft --- Could also get some looks as a wide receiver prospect --- Played in Chris Ault's "Pistol Offense", which padded stats but didn't really prepare him for the next level --- Better college player than pro prospect and is still more of an athlete than quarterback --- Intriguing developmental signal caller who is far from a finished product and will require some work and patience. Cowboys again make a move here, trading Marion Barber for a 4th rounder and future 6th, guaranteed on improving to a 5th of playing time, and stats for Barber. 4th Rounder from Miami or some other team for Barber, Cowboys take Mark Herzlich OLB Boston College 6' 4" 235 5th Rounder Cowboys trade their 7th rounder to move up alittle and take Kendrick Ellis DT Hampton 6' 5" 340 With Cowboys own 5th rounder, Cowboys take Henry Hynoski* FB Pittsburgh 6' 2" 260 Note, I wanted to take Owen Mareic FB from Stanford, but with him being undecided about going pro or playing football, I wanted a player with his heart in the right place and we do need a big bruising fullback. 6th Rounder Cowboys take Roy Helu Jr. RB Nebraska 6' 0" 215 or Alex Green RB Hawaii 6' 2" 230 7th Rounder Cowboys take Alex Henery K Nebraska 6' 2" 175 or Ryan Whalen WR Stanford 6' 2" 205 Note, I know thats 11 players, and I see Cowboys only taking 9 with possible trades of players or trading down, but wanted to get creative in this one. Again, I will listen to what Stephen Jones will say about this team, players either cut or traded possibly and then I will predict if Cowboys take that many players or not. But dont forget this, a few years back, I had the Cowboys taking 12 to 13 players and you all laughed at me. But who was right? The Cowboys did take 12 players in the 2009 draft. With what Jerry Jones told the players, your being evaluated the rest of these 8 games after he fired Wade, I do think some changes are coming, so possibly more draft picks taken or players traded for picks etc... So, toss it around see what you think, agree with or disagree. I really see Cowboys only taking 2 offensive linemen in this draft high in the draft, but they may surprise me, given status of Columbo, L Davis, and Holland.
