    ok guys here goes.....

    these 10 players will ABSOLUTELY not be available at 18:

    Reggie Bush
    Vince Young
    Matt Linehart
    Mario Williams
    D'Brick Ferguson
    AJ Hawk
    Veron Davis
    Michael Huff
    Haloti Ngata
    Jay Cutler

    by the way i think most of those will go in that order. jmo

    so that leaves 7 more before us, it can get a little unpredictable here, but ill take a stab at it.

    11. Brodrick Bunkley
    12. Winston Justice
    13. D'Angelo Williams
    14. Ernie Sims
    15. Tamba Hall
    16. Manny Lawson
    17. Santonio Holmes

    and NOW your Dallas Cowboys are on the clock...heres whats left of the best

    A. Chad Greenway
    B. Kameron Wimbley
    C. Chad Jackson
    D. Demeco Ryans
    E. Lendale White
    F. Bobby Carpenter
    G. Jimmy Williams
    H. Davin Joseph
    I. Nick Mangold

    that leave 9 possibilties, i seriously doubt of all the players ive listed, that we would pick someone else thats not listed above, if you think we would please give us the onto to the remaining 9...

    first of all, of the 9 remaining players let me say i could live with any of them at 18.

    so what do we do?
    with Greenway, Wimbley, Ryans and Carpenter still on the board, i think we can afford to trade down, which is probably our best option.

    if we stay at 18....ill predict we take Greenway or Carpenter,

    if it were me i would try to trade the pick and stockpile a couple more 1st day picks.

    lastly if anyone else wants to predict what we would do in that scenario, please feel free.

    I did something like this before...

    I would change the list of 7 a little

    One of the receivers
    One of the defensive backs

    That's 15 picks -- leaving two before us and this list left
    Other receiver
    Othe DBs from Jimmy Williams/Cromartie/Whitner/Hill/Joseph/Allen
    Deangelo Williams

    And I think your list of OLine are all 2nd round picks...

    So choose from the 3 LBs and the multiple DBs -- I guess Lawson and
    either Wimbley/another DB will be gone...probably making the list:

    and i hope Cromartie, but maybe Wimbley

    That leaves us with Carpenter, maybe Wimbley, and probably like Joseph or Cromartie or Tye Hill

    We'll be lucky to have our choice of two of the three LBs -- let's root for someone to take a RB and both WR to go -- that would make our options better.

    But I think the Wimbley/Lawson fans are probably going to be disappointed

    If OLB is our target we cannot trade down when SD, NE and SF are right behind us.

    We take Carpenter at 18 if he's still available.

    I agree if LB is the target we can not trade down at all. But IMO Lawson is the pick

    Lawson is the guy I want them to get. Thankfully I think they should make out alright whether it be Lawson, Wimbley or Carpenter.

    But Lawson is a guy that seems to be more than a workout warrior. He had 10.5 sacks last year and did it when Mario Williams got off to a slow start. Also, having watched him play throughout the year his speed translates on the field as he's got that rare closing speed. The only other guys that really have his type of closing speed in my mind are Hawk and Huff.

    35" arms (longer than Ware's) and runs a 4.41 and was productive in college.

    They have a decent shot of getting him since he's probably on a rice cake diet and that will scare 4-3 teams of putting him at DE and he probably doesn't fit in as a 4-3 SLB. So his true position in the league is 3-4 OLB. I doubt SF takes him at #6 (they'll go after Vernon Davis). Miami has issues elsewhere and finished 2nd in sacks last season. Cleveland is the key, but their run defense was putrid last year, especially up the middle and they did sign McGinest. Thus, I have them grabbing Ngata.
