    Note \ Dont worry Hos, this is the guy we need to target as our monster strong OG, this guy will make you forget Decastro in time, if we dont take Decastro. By the way Hos, you still want Konz who has bloodclot life issues and who only brench pressed 18 times, not very strong for an OL Hos, your take?

    One team in attendance was the Dallas Cowboys.

    ...

    Here's what Scouts Inc. had to say about Brooks' awareness: "Picks up blitzes more times than not but missed several gap calls in the 2011 Western Michigan game. Turns to locate backside pressure when no one comes to him in slide protection. Keeps eyes up and locates linebackers when asked to combo block up to the second level."

    Yup, SDogo had also mentioned that the Cowboys were represented at his Pro Day.

    If we don't go DeCastro in Round 1, I think we could look at him in Rounds 2/3. Not sure if he lasts to our 3rd Round pick though.

    I'm going to curb the enthusiasm here. Bottom line, he is still the small school prospect that was given a 4th-5th round grade based on game film against lower level competition before the underwear olympics. Will I recognize his workouts, of course but I will not value them at 2-3 rounds.

    Yeah, I like Brooks, but he probably is going to be over drafted. I could see the Steelers picking this guy in late round 2.

    Cordy Glenn is the superior player, and I hope Dallas seriously considers Glenn in round 1.
