Cordy Glenn, OG, Georgia... a poor man's Carl Nicks, a 350 pounder with agility...
chris, what do you think about Nick Perry?
If DeCastro is gone before 14 that means somebody, most likely one of the top 3 offensive tackles, fell.
Personally, I wouldn't pull the trigger on an OT but you can bet your last dollar that my first phone call would be to the Chargers in that scenario, because they'd be thrilled to get one of those guys. Move down 4 spots, pick up an extra 3rd round choice, and still get my projected pick ( Barron ), or one of the primo DTs ( 3-4 DEs ) that would still be available ( Michael Brockers or Devon Still ).
Would love to grab him in the 2nd round.
Peter Konz- center - Wisconsin
rated 5th best pro prospect in draft by Wes Bunting and First Rd grade= 8.0
after 1-Luck 2- Claiborne 3- DeCastro & 4- Richardson
definately a plug and play choice for many yrs to come
need to protect Romo, since w/o him, the Boys are toast.....
I sense an urgency to build a protective wall around Romo...his health is prime to the future of the Cowboys- this investment is treated like a rag doll by our opponents...jeez
Give Romo some love....get him Nicks in free agency - DeCastro at 14th and move up from second round into first round and get Konz....that way we're done with the offensive line for remaining Romo yrs in one swoop and OL set for a decade.
Smith... Nicks ... Konz ...DeCastro ...Free
Yeah, the defense suffers but lets get it fixed in the following 2 yrs. Not like if we're a player away from the SB with that train wreck.....:bang2:
it is a very good possibility that no one is going to want to move up so a trade down will probably be out of the question
Konz'a medical history + our luck = bad combination. No on Konz
He's generally predicted to go in the pick 20-25 range, from what I've read...
Great player, but there's a serious question mark with him-- he missed some games late in the season two years back because of blood clots... if he ever has a recurrence of those blood clots, he'll have to go on blood thinners for the rest of his life, which will immediately end his NFL career...
Now, if you can guarantee me that he'll never have another problem with those clots, then I'm with you, draft him if you can at pick 14... but what if you draft him that high, and he has another blood clot even before training camp begins, and never plays another snap for you??
I might take such a chance with a 4th round pick, but I wouldn't spend one of my first three picks on a player with that question mark...
You can find a nice center in the 2nd round (Ben Jones of Georgia), or even in the 4th or 5th round range (Philip Blake of Baylor)... and one of my sleepers is an intriguing center from tiny Elon, Rodney Austin...
You don't know who is playing LT next year?
this post sent a tingle down my leg. :
