    Mendenhall is intriguing. It could push everyone down dome if Dmac slips, but the Carolina taking may not do the trick because it still leaves the same teams looking for RBs left to grab Mendenhall and Stewart before pick 22. Now if he fell to Detroit....

    Well, who are the teams that need a RB?

    To me, Cards, Carolina and Detroit. Now, the Cards also need DBs and OL. Especially OT IMO. What's going to be the better value for them? RBs are not typically drafted in the early rounds. I actually think they might consider Cason here. He's local and that would be a draw for them. They may also consider Albert. He's probably better value here. Maybe one of the tackles. I would be doubtful if they took a RB.

    Detroit is a candidate but I can not see them passing on a QB, DE, OLB or OT. They are in to poor a shape. Besides, if we can believe that there is a trade in place with us for Roy, then they are going to have a great chance to pick up a RB early in the draft anyway.

    I just don't see Carolina drafting a RB this early either. I think they will try to pick up a QB or one of the highly rated DEs.

    There could be a real good chance that if DMac slides, Mendanhall is available to us.

    True, but the article does infer that Jerry won't trade up into the top ten picks. BUT....

    I agree. If neither of them are going to be available, I believe we make "the move" also.

    Of course though, I wouldn't discount us using next years #1 if McFadden does drop that far. Suddenly the value plummets and we start having to pay less. Both could be had if he slips out of the top 10. A little more manuvering and we could parley a few of our other draft picks up into another #1 this year if we really wanted too and not even have to look into next years draft. Like how we popped back up into the first last year after trading away our #22 pick.

    If you look at it a little closer, 12, maybe 13 of the top 15 teams in the draft order don't need a RB. I like our chances of being able to move up and get DMac. It almost seems like the Cowboys are destined to get him.

    Here is a list of the top 15 teams in the draft order and who they already have at RB:

    1. Miami (Ronnie Brown, Ricky Williams)
    2. St. Louis (Steven Jackson, Travis Minor)
    3. Atlanta (Michael Turner, Jerious Norwood)
    4. Oakland (Justin Fargas, Dominic Rhodes, Lamont Jordan)
    5. Kansas City (Larry Johnson, Kolby Smith)
    6. N.Y. Jets (Thomas Jones, Leon Washington, Jesse Chatman)
    7. New England (Laurence Maroney, Kevin Faulk)
    8. Baltimore (Willis McGahee, Cory Ross)
    9. Cincinnati (Rudi Johnson, Kenny Watson, Kenny Irons)
    10. New Orleans (Deuce McCallister, Reggie Bush, Aaron Stecker)
    11. Buffalo (Marshawn Lynch, Fred Jackson)
    12. Denver (Travis Henry, Selvin Young)
    13. Carolina (DeAngelo Williams, Alex Haynes)
    14. Chicago (Cedric Benson, Adrian Peterdon)
    15. Detroit (Tatum Bell, Brian Calhoun)
