    .....Demarcus Ware is still on the team with a reduced salary as well.....This is a scenario that hasn't been discussed too much here. Everyone is doing mocks with the main focus of the 1st 3 rounds being d-line. Well what if Jerry decides to address it before the draft? Now obviously doing just that isn't a long term fix, but it would certainly make taking d line less of a necessity in the 1st 2 rounds.

    1st Round- CJ Mosely MLB Bama- Very possibly BPA. Getting a talent like Mosley gives you the best chance to have your 11 most talented on defense at the same time. Furthermore it turns Sean Lee into a WIL where he could most likely be best suited and has a better chance of staying healthy. Mosely seems to have a very low bust factor to him as well.

    2nd Round- Tre Mason RB Auburn- :eek: A RB in the 2nd?!?! If you calm down and think about it a second its really not a bad idea, especially with a kid that spent his Jr year breaking records set by Bo Jackson. If Linehan is really taking over he is going to want to continue to use 2 RB sets. This + Murray is injury prone and a FA after this year. Mason adds a dynamic aspect to our offense this year and takes over as the primary back next year.

    3rd Round- Marcus Smith DE Louisville- Very high ceiling DE who can be brought along slowly while he adds a little bulk and learns the NFL game. Also is a good WDE pass rusher to keep Demarcus fresh and healthy throughout the season.

    4th Round- Caraun Reid DT Princeton- I see Reid as an ideal 1 tech in Mareneli's scheme. Short stocky frame with the strength to hold his own against double teams, but also possess the burst to provide a push up the middle. Good value and a good addition to the DT rotation.

    5th Round- Trai Turner OG LSU- Came out early before really making a name for himself, but did just that at the combine. Powerful and extremely quick for a G. Could easily push Mack for starting G spot right away.

    *Trade 2 7th's for a 6th (I highly doubt we actually draft 3 7th rounders + our comp picks)*

    6th Round- L'Damian Washington WR MIzzu- 6'4 with 4.4 speed. Good guy to develop

    7th Round- Jonathan Dowling FS Western Kentucky- Interesting size and athletic combo


    Now I'm sure pretty much will everyone hate my mock, but I'd like to see what everyone else would do in a situation where presumably 3 out of 4 d line spots are set for next year and Crawford, Bass, and Selvie are still there to rotate in as well.

    creative, but even if we keep Ware, re-sign Spencer and add Melton, that is the PERFECT time to also add DL into the mix; they need to apply pressure while also getting younger at the position...Ware and Spencer staying wreak of the restructure process that Dallas is fighting through (again guys taking up space); if I thought that Dallas would actually consider moving Lee to the Will, then I would be all for grabbing mosley, I just can't see them doing that...and while I like Mason a lot, I would hate to use a 2nd rounder on a RB...I also LOVE Chris Smith, so if Marcus isn't there, grab up chris!!!

    I would take the whole scenario and mock draft except I'd like a OL, namely at least a OG. Also, I like the Baylor safety better in the later rounds

    Spencer isnt coming back. I seriously doubt Melton ends up here.

    I'm on board with keeping an open mind to a RB in round 2. Even round 1 if there was an elite prospect, but there isn't this year.

    I like all of the players, but I don't want to draft a 4-3 LB at #16. Rounds 2 through 7 are terrific.

    Who would you target at 16 without it being a 3 tech? I see Mosley, Martin, and Pryor/HaHa being the likely candidates to be available and CJ would be my personal #1 choice out of those 4.

    Yeah what I like about gaffney is he is almost always putting up positive yards. Seems to fight after the first hit a lot.
