    Several of the top prospects backed up their hype in today's game. Several guys I already liked- Vickers, Klopfenstein and Cutler (yeah, whatever, he played well)- justified my continued love. But which players took you by surprise and earned a closer look from you as a potential pick for the Cowboys? Here's three I saw:

    Sinorice Moss- I know, maybe only a surprise to me, but I'd never considered this guy worthy of our first pick until today. Wicked second gear, very polished routes and he looked sturdier today than he did even earlier this season for Miami. I must admit, Steve Smith has forced me to redefine my requirements for a #1 Cowboy WR.

    Marvin Philip- As a Pac-10 alum, embarrassed to say I'd never heard of this center from Cal. If you TIVO'd the game, watch him on Michael Robinson's entire second-quarter scoring drive right before half. Impressive combo of power and surgical seal blocking. He's short, but he's better than what we have (I'd still prefer Mangold).

    Anthony Smith- looked good in short coverage, made some excellent, sure tackles and was a demon on kick coverage. I thought he was a strong safety but he covered slot receivers all week. Anyone have a first-hand account of this guy? I just know we've got a Syracuse connection and a need at free safety.

    I would have to agree with you on Moss. A pleasant surprise.

    Griffin on the INT impressed me.

    Max Jean-Gilles definitely made a case for himself.

    Klopfenstein - TE had a nice day

    Deagngelo Williams/Moss proved they are at the top of their positions.

    Hali and Anderson showcased pass rush skills

    Cutler showed why he's not a top 15 pick

    Howard had a nice showing

    I liked Anderson and Lawson. Hali, and Tapp... Moss was a surprise, and Pat Watkins was good.

    I also liked Watson in run game, and Gilles looked great. Anderson put a move on the best Tackle in the draft, made him look silly. I think that was Anderson..

    Obviously Moss.

    Howard instilled some confidence in me.

    Gilles had a nice day.

    Griffin really came to play.

    Tapp was the one who surprised me the most. He was constently in the South backfield. They finally had the LT, an RB, & the LG blocking on him the first pass play of the second half. That tells you all you need to know about who the coachs thought was creating problems.
    Earlier in the year, he schooled D'Brick when V.Tech played Virginia. Yesterday, he took it to Eric Winston, and later, Jonathon Scott. Those are three of the best LTs in this draft that he dominated this year.
    At 6-2, 260, with phenomenol quickness & speed to the QB, he would make an ideal OLB. He's a little short, but try telling that to the teams he played this year. He had: 48 Tkls., 14.5 TFL, 10 Sacks, 35 QB hurries!, & 3 FF.
    I would take that in a 16 game season, let alone 10-11.

    I still like Bobby Carpenter, but if Tapp could drop back, I might change my mind.

    I don't know, Moss obviously showed he has a gear few people have, but he's still 5-7 and 180 lbs.

    Don't know if he can be a top 3 WR on a team.

    Cal OT Ryan O'Callaghan, for a big guy, moved around really well, and had a great Senior Bowl week

    yeah Moss really suprised me

    Daniel Bullocks reinforced the notion that I previously held, ballhawk

    Manny Lawson went up even higher in my book

    Pat Watkins was a suprise

    Hagan looking so poor was a suprise

    Finally someone has the same thought pattern.

    I keep over looking Tapp, but this guy 1st off was putting it to guys in practice the 1st day of practice this week. Secondly, he had constant pressure on the QB and those DE's were rotating alot.

    So imagine him being in the game the entire time. And Cogan, like you, I want to see if he is agile enough to take on TE's and Backs coming out of the backfield and how he does in the open field. Last thing, OMG he had 35 QB pressures, that would be good for atleast 10 INT's.
