1a. Aqib Talib, CB (Kansas, 6'2" , 205 lbs) I'd prefer Leodis McKelvin, but he'll probably be the first CB off the board, chances are Talib might be as well, but I'll hold out hope. He's a big, smart corner that plays the ball well enough to have seen a few snaps at WR (13 ints in 3 years). We've got a solid cover corner in Newman, and Henry who makes plays on the ball but may be slowing down sooner than later, I'd love to keep a play maker opposite Newman so when they throw away from him, they throw right into trouble. (ALT: Leodis McKlevin, CB / Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB) 1b. James Hardy, WR (Indiana, 6'6", 220 lbs) The guy is a freak of nature, and people have stated his height as anything from 6'5" to 6'7". Reminds me a lot of Plaxico, and you'd think he'd be no deep threat but he just seems to get faster as he goes down the field, and he can catch the ball when it gets there. Has no problem with the jam either and would offer Romo another big target in the endzone. He's also a tough, no-nonsense guy, which is rare at the WR position. He may be a little bit of a reach in the 1st, but if we don't get him here, we don't get him period. (ALT: Limas Sweed, WR / Early Doucet, WR / Felix Jones, RB) 2. Ray Rice, RB (Rutgers, 5'9", 205 lbs) I like in NY, so I've heard plenty about Ray, and I'm sold on him. He's a little on the small side, but I agree with those that say he may be the most NFL ready back in the draft. He's patient, strong and has a huge heart. My only concern is he may be the type of guy that needs the ball 15+ times to have a big impact on the game. (ALT: Chris Johnson, RB / Jamaal Charles, RB / Devin Thomas, WR) 3. Tavares Gooden, ILB (Miami, 6'2", 238 lbs) Like Rice, may be a little undersized but he's a baller. Has experience at every LB position, but would be a good fit for us at ILB. He also comes from the same college with a good track record when it comes to LB's. He's not much of a blitzer, which is a little bit of a knock, but he's capable in coverage and his motor never stops. (ALT: Phillip Wheeler, ILB) 4. Owen Schmitt, FB (West Virginia, 6'3", 260 lbs) We all know and love Owen, he's just nasty. Could excel in short yardage as well alla Mike Alstott. I like Deon, but he's not a bruiser. (ALT: Donald Thomas, OG) 5. Donald Thomas, OG (Connecticut, 6'3", 292 lbs) If we take Owen, I'll hope Donald falls down here. He's not as beefy as most of the guys on our line, and that may be just what we need, someone a little more flexible. I doubt he lasts till the fifth, but once again, I'm hoping. (ALT: Frank Okam, DT / Ahtyba Rubin, DT) 6. Matt Flynn, QB (LSU, 6'2", 228 lbs) To be honest I don't know a lot about Flynn, we do need a backup for Romo though but taking one too early is a little silly with a young QB (and his large contract) already on the roster. It'd be nice to have someone ready when Brad calls it a night though. My only knock is that he's a little on the short side, but he is about the same size as Romo, we've all seen Romo get a ball or two knocked down at the line though. 7. Dexter Jackson, WR (Appalachian State, 5'9", 178 lbs) Speed guy who is on the small side but could help us immediately in special teams and might develop into something of a slot receiver. As a 7th round pick, there's not much risk here, but his stock as been rising since he took Doucet's play in the Senior Bowl practices, so he very well might get picked as high as the 5th round. Comments, criticisms and suggestions are welcome.
