    No money for both of those 2 free agents and Pryor will go top 25. Ealy is ok but I'd rather see them get Jernigan or Donald round 1 and maybe try and get Ealy's Mizzou teammate in rounds 2 or 3.

    Like your thinking in terms of direction your aiming, but some picks are too early and some won't be there where you have them slotted. Overall addresses some significant holes.

    Looks good, but I think 2, 3, 4 and 5 all go about 1/2 round earlier.

    I see Telvin Smith in a lot of mocks. He is a good player, but I'm not sure what to do with him. He is only 218 lbs. If he is really available in the 4th round, he might be worth it if he just stayed at 218 and played LB in the nickel. I don't know if he can bigger and if he does, will he lose speed. He could probably play SS, but he would lose the speed advantage that he has at LB.

    The Cowboys can make cap space to sign both of those free agents.

    Michael Bennett is almost 99% sure to resign with Seattle...so you might want to try and find someone else there.

    Don't like CJ Moseley at all after watching some video. Ceiling seems low, fundamentals need a lot of work. Would disappoint.

    would love that draft though it seems right now as if most players are forecast to go a bit earlier than you select them.

    kony, donald, pryor, dix all generally between 16-40.

    bennett is pretty coveted in seattle and linval joseph is very coveted in nyg. dont see either as a realistic target.
    could probably land older NYG DL or one of the handful of SEA guys that should actually be available.
    if you flop positions/teams.

    might could get mcdaniel out of seattle and justin tuck from nyg.

    Might be wrong but, I feel like Linval Joseph + Bennett exceeds the realistic amount of $ we can spend on free agents. Linval is going to get paid.

    I hope your right X-Man, we need some help and the draft can only do so much.

    I think our top FA focus will be on Corey Wooteon. Played for Rod and with Melton also a FA, Bears may let him go.

    The Cowboys could sign 2 free agents to 5 year, 50M contracts each and fit it under the 2014 cap.

    I don't expect either of these players to get that type contract.

    Good thought. I could see that. Keep an eye on Robert Ayers, Everson Griffin and Lamarr Houston as well.
