Great sig Captain.
I really like Jake Stoneburner and Zac Boren.
I don't think he's a OT in the NFL and as we've just seen interior OL don't go early in the draft.
I really havent looked at the prospects for next year......so I will go with the homer pick......the player I know the best....btw, he is the top ranked DE at this moment on CBSSports.com
DE/OLB Alex Okafor Texas 6'4 260
If your going to pick one, that's a good one.
This is why I wish we would have traded for the future a few years ago when we drafted all those scrubs like Brandon Williams and the like.
Had we traded away 3 or 4 of those picks into the future, and continued doing so...we may have had enough juice in this draft to get Claiborne and DeCastro in the 1st.
It is unfortunate we couldn't trade down in the 3rd and add an extra 4th to get Blake.
Process of elimination:
In 1 we won't draft QB, WR, OT, TE, G (I thik we like the young ones on roster for some reason), CB, OLB (we will sign Spencer long term).
Leaves: C, S, DE, RB (I think we would take a complete back to pair with Murray).
Barring a total collapse by the Cowboys again this year, I think the first round S's will go higher, RB's don't grade where we will be picking. DE's I like Kwann Short Purdue and Sheldon Robinson but think Short could very high and Robinson looks like a mid-rounder.
Hence, by process of elimination Barrett Jones has to be the guy when Costa, KK, Nagy all flop this year.
I don't have a pet cat at this point but something tells me it will wind up being a Qb or RB.
One of my favorite players for next year is UNC LB Kevin Reddick.
And let's face it, the Cowboys have a thing for second round ILBs.
Another thing to watch will be the edge rushers, next year's class could be absolutely lethal once the underclassmen declare.
I've got my eyes on his bookend
Bjoern Werner | DE | Florida St
Only a true Sophmore last year though so he may not come out.
No pet yet. I'll be looking for Safeties and DT/DE's. With what we saw this year I hope we can grab a C in the 2nd so I'll have an eye open for them as well.
Casmith has me pretty sold on FS T.J. McDonald though.
IMO TJ McDonald should be more of a ballhawk in the pass happy Pac 2.
Lester has more picks in 1 year than TJ has in his career.
Eric Reid Safety.
Just to throw out another potential OLB name, Dion Jordan the 6'7 edge rusher from Oregon with a monstrous wingspan and reported 4.4 speed.
What's Lester's first name?
not overly familiar with the class yet but I do know that there is a pretty good safety class next year with t.j. mcdonald, eric reid, and kenny vaccaro, and possibly mathieu who I think may project to safety in the NFL
i watched that game and the one against miami(i think) and he stood out to me in both, the guy gets a crazy jump off the ball.
Robert Lester Alabama...number 37
