    So, I'm bored here on my day off for the week. Decided to put together a little mock using several different boards and ratings of where many think prospects will be off the board or even post pro day risers and fallers. I'm gonna be Jerry-like and make a trade.

    The Cowboys send their #14 pick to the Titans for #20, their 3rd and 7th rounders. Titans covet Cordy Glenn and DeCastro is gone at 13 to Arizona so we decide to go in a different direction.

    #20. Nick Perry OLB USC. A pressure player that everyone wants to increase the ferocity of our pass rush. Should be able to grow into a strong OLB opposite D-Ware. Will be able to spell both Spencer and Ware, keeping them more fresh for late in games and our deep playoff run this year...;)

    2. George Iloka S Boise St. A feisty player who has the swag and attitude a secondary needs. Is a headhunter who doesn't need a bounty reward program to excel. As long as Rob Ryan can hold his temper back, he will be a adequate replacement for Sensabaugh or Pool as early as later in this season.

    3a. Devon Wylie WR/PR Fresno St. A small slot WR who will be very good at the short crossing or finding soft spots in the zone while having Dez and Miles take care of the deeper route. Was one of the better return men in college football.

    3b. David Molk C Michigan Has the feisty attitude to eventually be a quality Garrett type at C. Is smart, from a Big 10 school that I personally love to see successful players come from..and will be a vocal leader as well as offering some really good smarts to the Oline on the field. Lunch-pail overachiever who will always block until 1 second after the whistle blows.

    4. Coryell Judie CB Texas A&M The CB suffered some injuries but has gone on to be very productive as a KR too. Has the size Rob loves at CB and with some seasoning as the #4 CB this year, hopefully he can step in as the nickel CB if we chose not to resign Jenkins next offseason.

    5a. Jack Crawford DE Penn St. Can become a cog in the Dline rotation with some improved technique and strength.

    5b Compensatory. James Hanna TE Oklahoma. Is a athletic player at TE who hopefully is still on the board here, we might have to pick him in the 4th or early in the 5th if we really want him.

    6. Tank Carder LB TCU LB who played in their odd 4-2-5 scheme. Will need some coaching by Rob to find a good position for him, but will probably be the swing backup when he comes around and replaces Connor down the road.

    7a. Levy Adcock OT OSU. A Big 12 RT who didn't allow a sack his senior year. Moved to LT during some games as well to cover for injuries. Might be a year away from being a solid backup OT.

    7b. Brandon Hardin FS Oregon St. Played CB, but is bulked up enough to be able to play centerfield in the pros once he is fully healed and interviewed well enough. Worth the flyer on the outside chance he could eventually start.

    I like some of it.


    #20. Nick Perry OLB USC. A pressure player that everyone wants to increase the ferocity of our pass rush. Should be able to grow into a strong OLB opposite D-Ware. Will be able to spell both Spencer and Ware, keeping them more fresh for late in games and our deep playoff run this year...;)
    Perry is very explosive in a straight line, but has terrible lateral agility. His agility issues are easy to see in games and his agility measurements back this up. He has by far the worst agility measurements of the top 10 OLB prospects.

    2. George Iloka S Boise St. A feisty player who has the swag and attitude a secondary needs. Is a headhunter who doesn't need a bounty reward program to excel. As long as Rob Ryan can hold his temper back, he will be a adequate replacement for Sensabaugh or Pool as early as later in this season.
    Interesting player, but this is a round too high, IMO.

    3a. Devon Wylie WR/PR Fresno St. A small slot WR who will be very good at the short crossing or finding soft spots in the zone while having Dez and Miles take care of the deeper route. Was one of the better return men in college football.
    Maybe the best of the slot WR / returner types. I would like him in the 4th round, not sure about the 3rd.


    3b. David Molk C Michigan Has the feisty attitude to eventually be a quality Garrett type at C. Is smart, from a Big 10 school that I personally love to see successful players come from..and will be a vocal leader as well as offering some really good smarts to the Oline on the field.

    Small and doubtful to get bigger. He already added 15 to 20 lbs since the end of the college season. He is very stong, but OL have to have some about of anchor, especially with the DLinemen getting bigger every year.

    4. Coryell Judie CB Texas A&M The CB suffered some injuries but has gone on to be very productive as a KR too. Has the size Rob loves at CB and with some seasoning as the #4 CB this year, hopefully he can step in as the nickel CB if we chose not to resign Jenkins next offseason.
    Judie is a little underrated, IMO. Somewere around the 4th or 5th is about right.

    5a. Jack Crawford DE Penn St. Can become a cog in the Dline rotation with some improved technique and strength.
    Ok.

    5b Compensatory. James Hanna TE Oklahoma. Is a athletic player at TE who hopefully is still on the board here, we might have to pick him in the 4th or early in the 5th if we really want him.
    Ok, interesting player.

    6. Tank Carder LB TCU LB who played in their odd 4-2-5 scheme. Will need some coaching by Rob to find a good position for him, but will probably be the swing backup when he comes around and replaces Connor down the road.
    Ok in the 6th, but I much much prefer Miles Burris at ILB.

    7a. Levy Adcock OT OSU. A Big 12 RT who didn't allow a sack his senior year. Moved to LT during some games as well to cover for injuries. Might be a year away from being a solid backup OT.
    Adcock is underrated, IMO.

    7b. Brandon Hardin FS Oregon St. Played CB, but is bulked up enough to be able to play centerfield in the pros once he is fully healed and interviewed well enough. Worth the flyer on the outside chance he could eventually start.
    Good pick in the 7th.

    A round early on your picks in rounds 2-4. Not sure what they think about Perry either.

    Yes, Perry isn't well suited in coverage, but he is a big time pressure player. He may not get past San Diego. Perry can get to the passer, all the reports are saying his first step is probably the most explosive in the draft. He needs to work on his moves and his lateral agility like you all already know. When you drop out of the first half of the first round, the talent usually drops slightly as well. But Perry is a great value even just to rush the passer and have him grow into our OLB opposite Ware.
