    You're always good for one homer pick a year.

    I have seen some of these guys but am no way am I an expert. As WR's goes, the Wisconsin WR Abbrederis always seemed to be making plays when I saw them play. He also did not play in a pass happy offense (speaking of Wisconsin on defense their linebacker Borland seemed to make a lot of plays too). With the underclassman entering the draft, he would be a very intriguing player in the third round, if he made it that far. As a Baylor graduate, I thought Reece would be a attractive guy after the first four rounds. Although Kiper has him higher than I anticipated. Reece is small and I doubt he will run the full route tree in the pros, but he can fly and could certainly help stretch the field.

    My initial favorite, I guess, is Tuitt out of ND. I don't think he will make it to our pick though. I thought he was a little too heavy last year. If he loses 20-25 pounds, I think he will really rise on the draft boards. He is just a natural big guy who is also a good athlete.

    Dallas should be focused on getting at least 2 of the top 5 DTs between the senior and non senior lists...there is some talent there...deep group
