    Barron would be a bust pick for us.
    We don't need a SS that can't cover deep or man to man with TEs.

    I would rather take DeCastro, Glenn, Jenkins or Kirkpatrick who he has going after 14 or trade back.

    He has Upshaw at 10, Kuechly at 11, and Ingram at 12

    I've heard some compare Barron to Polamalu, but I don't see it. I gotta believe that if Kirkpatrick is there, they'll take him.

    As I stated in another thread , we have posters on this board that can rate players better than these media draft guys . (That doesn't include Joe C. )lmao

    If the Cowboys picked Barron, with those other guys still on the board then I'd boycott Risen Star's Sunday morning political discussions at Dunkin Donuts.

    Wow I’m baffled by some of the picks intrigued by others. I can’t believe he has DeCastro falling that far and while I see Barron going in the 15-20 range I don’t want him. I can also see Vinny Curry going in the late 1st round.

    He has to keep changing his drafts so people will read him. While I think he can evaluate players, I think he is exploited by the nature of ESPN and they are probably asking him to come up with as many different scenarios as possible. Which is why he'll have 7-8 mock drafts between now and April.

    This draft, even more so than some of his other shams, looks like he viewed the whole first round and then plugged in picks by need and in terms of his current value chart. In other words, after about the first five BPA goes out the window. It doesn't look like he went pick by pick in order.

    Anyway, I don't think this is anywhere even close to how things will shake out.

    I think you are right . He has to do something to keep up the draft buzz and justify his paycheck . Moving these players up and down the draft board keeps people talking for sure .

    dead on. There is absolutely no reason for Glenn to go up or DeCastro to go down. None of the teams are seriously into their board yet; will not even begin until after the combine. So his info is questionable at best.

    outside of the cowboys taken Barron instead of Kirkpatrik I think it may be a very possible draft each team drafting for their highest BPA need

    find it interesting that there's at least one draft pundit who looks at Barron the same way I did about a month ago. I, too, had him going to the Cowboys because it makes sense.

    Having said that, I'm standing by my current mock so far. I haven't consider changing even the last rounds, which are the more volatile ones. That's not going to last, obviously, because of free agency, but that film of DeCastro against Notre Dame in 2010 has me salivating at the thought of him wearing a Cowboys uniform..

    He actually reminds me of a bigger, stronger, and better version of Mark Stepnoski, who was a technique beast at center.

    Yeah Polamalu was recently exposed as being horrendous in coverage.

    Agree about the technician part but Step was a midget compared to DeCastro.

    no way a guy with a double hernia is going in the top 15 picks.

    Mike, I wish I understood that because I think you just won that one.

    I'm not surprised Melly Mel has Glenn going ahead of DeCastro. He's got that T/G flexibility teams covet. It may be enough to make this true.

    I know I'd prefer Glenn here for that very reason.

    .......man oh MAN are people under estimating this procedure. I had a single one done 2 months ago and I'm going back to the surgeon on Monday as I'm having problems: granted, I'm south of 40 but still.........this SHOULD scare teams off in the first round. That said, if he falls to GB or the gspots and is an all pro for 12 years well............:bang2:
