    22. DALLAS COWBOYS
    -
    AARON ROSS
    CB | Texas | Scouting Report

    The Cowboys have a clearly defined need at free safety so some may be surprised to see a cornerback here but there is a logical explanation. Word is Anthony Henry might be moving to free safety and since both LaRon Landry and Reggie Nelson figure to be gone by this point that might be their best chance at addressing the position. However by filling one hole with that move they would create another at cornerback opposite Terence Newman, which is where Aaron Ross comes in. After biding his time behind a talented stable of Longhorn defensive backs for most of his career Ross finally got a chance to start as a senior and boy did he take advantage of the opportunity, coming through with a number of impact plays and winning the Thorpe Award in the process. A great athlete who can also contribute as a return man, Ross doesn't get a lot of attention but he is a solid first rounder and at this point all signs point to him going higher than some would expect. After already addressing the o-line they'll be looking defensive back here.

    53. Mason Crosby K - Vanderjagt was a bust but this guy will finally take care of that problem area once and for all.

    87. Steve Smith WR - Terry Glenn is basically year-to-year now and, as always, Terrell Owens is minute-to-minute.

    I don't think Dallas will draft a kicker at all. They just resigned Gramatica and have Carlos Martinez on the practice squade.

    I guess I could live with this. With our past struggles at the Kicker position, I can see why we would draft a kicker so high. If you are going to lock up a sure fire, clutch kicker for years to come, then Crosby is the guy.

    Interesting who they have going after our picks in Rounds 2 and 3.

    Rd 2:
    OT James Marten
    WR Craig "Buster" Davis
    DE Quentin Moses
    QB Drew Stanton
    DE Tim Crowder
    WR Jason Hill

    Rd 3:
    OG Manny Ramirez
    S John Wendling

    This mock would look alot better like this:

    Rd 1: Aaron Ross
    Rd 2: Buster Davis or one of the DEs
    Rd 3: Manny Ramirez

    Seems to me we'd get much better value for our picks this way.

    we signed grammatica again - we're NOT going to draft a kicker THAT HIGH! i don't think *I* have ever been that high, much less jones, to do that.

    Even Better.

    I didn't look at the first round as everyone seemed happy with Ross. I was sticking with the link's premise that we need a CB, but I like Bowe/Moses/Ramirez better. Then see if we can get a CB in Rd 4, even if it means using a later pick to move up some. Not to start immediately, per se, but to eventually replace Glenn or, ideally, Henry.

    Steve Smith in the 3rd is an AWESOME pick.

    I cry about the guys that mock has going right before us.

    In Round 1, Spencer goes right before us. In round 2, Weddle goes right before us.

    I would be ecstatic with a draft of:
    1. Spencer
    2. Weddle
    3. Steve Smith
