    Dallas

    Rd Sel# Player Pos. School
    43 Julius Jones RB Notre Dame
    Pat Kirwan's Analysis
    As we know, this is Thomas Jones' brother. He rose from way back in the pack as his last season at Notre Dame came to an end. The opportunity to start in Dallas right away is there, and the way Parcells handled Curtis Martin in New England is the model for how Jones will be treated. Also expect him to return kickoffs -- he had 72 in college for 2,100 yards. After Tatum Bell, he may be the second fastest back in the draft.

    52 Jacob Rogers OT Southern California
    Pat Kirwan's Analysis
    Rogers is a former tight end and an excellent athlete but has a medical history. Rogers is tough and plays hurt, which Bill Parcells loves. Could eventually be the Cowboys' left tackle, but with Larry Allen out of the mix and Vollers as the right tackle, Rogers could challenge to play along the line this year. This pick reminds me of how Parcells reconstructed the Jets in his second year, and he is very capable of throwing this kid on the field early.

    83 Stephen Peterman G Louisiana State
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    Peterman was an all-state tight end in Mississippi and was top ranked. He came to LSU and they made a guard out of him. He has a big, wide body and has good athletic ability.



    Rd Sel# Player Pos. School
    121 Bruce Thornton CB Georgia
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    Dallas needs a cornerback, and I don't think this is a reach. He was a starter in a very good program. He has good speed and good coverage skills.



    Rd Sel# Player Pos. School
    144 Sean Ryan TE Boston College
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    Was a pretty good receiver for the Eagles. I think he could eventually grow into an offensive lineman because he's a good blocker.



    Rd Sel# Player Pos. School
    7 205 Nathan Jones CB Rutgers
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    He worked out well at his Pro Day. He's a short corner and a very good kick returner.



    Rd Sel# Player Pos. School
    7 216 Patrick Crayton WR Northwestern Oklahoma State Gil Brandt's Analysis
    Crayton is an outstanding kick returner and has returned 12 kicks for touchdowns. Last year, he made 13 catches -- four were for touchdowns. He's also played a lot of cornerback.



    Rd Sel# Player Pos. School
    223 Jacques Reeves CB Purdue
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    Cornerback with a little height. At this spot, it's worth a risk.

    I'm getting a better and better feeling about Jones.

    I don't know a lot about him, but most the analysis sounds pretty postive.

    And I gotta say that those clips on ESPN made him look like a freaking freight train. If he can break tackles like that on this level we might not be drafting a RB with BUF's pick next year afterall.

    Paging dogo....
