    As usual I can't tell if this is Norm's opinions or what he's heard from his sources...

    -- Doesn't believe reports that Dallas is trading up for Barron. They really like a lot of the players in the 3rd and 4th round.

    -- They've fallen back in love with DeCastro, particularly after he said he would be willing to play center. Of course they would love an opportunity to get Cox, but it will probably come down to a choice between Barron and DeCastro at 14, and Brockers has fallen behind those two. Between DeCastro and Barron a bluechip player will be there at #14 who will be ready to step in as a Day 1 starter.

    -- Cowboys aren't touching the character risks of Coples, Jenkins, Jeffery, Denard. Also Dre Kirkpatrick and Bruce Irvin.

    Example 1A of why waiting till the last minute to do a mock is bad. More often then not, the word you hear a month ago is what it is.

    Trade back with the Chargers and still land Decastro?

    Thanks IR.

    Of course, I always take anything Norm says with a tub of salt, (a grain just isn't enough) but #2 and #3 seem pretty sound. #1 is obviously just Norm's opinion.

    I'm on board with #3. Though, I *could* make an exception with Irvin if I can get him late enough. As for the Coples and Jenkins, I wouldn't touch them. (don't know much about the others)

    Norm seems to think the most likely trade scenerio would involve DeCastro and Barron sitting there at #14 equally rated, and the Cowboys moving back a couple of spots with the Jets at #16 knowing they would take Barron and the Cowboys would then take DeCastro at #16.

    They're not in love with Barron as much as we think. Or maybe they're confident in one of the 2nd tier safeties like Harrison Smith, Iloka or Taylor.

    I hope one of the scenarios Norm paints is how it falls.

    Gimme DeCastro and the Jets' #154 and 2013 third-rounder.

    (They have no 4th-round selection this year.)

    I am slightly relieved that there is better than a slim chance for us to draft Decastro now, before this I was thinking maybe 15% chance.

    DeCastro at #14 would make me happy.

    Oh, me either. But if the Jets wanna hand me a coupla mid-round picks and I can still grab DeCastro two picks later, why not? Philthy isn't trading back.

    Anyone that thinks Norm has insight into the Cowboys pick is in complete denial.

    Same here.

    Looks like the odds are goin' up!

    And I would take him at #14 rather than taking any chances trading down.

    The Eagles could always bail at #15 to someone who wants to move up to get him (like San Diego?).

    Actually, I've listened to him throughout the years and he's been pretty good at tipping off picks. Spencer, Jenkins, Felix, Sean Lee.

    Look around at the board today and all the stuff being thrown against the wall right before draft time. It's like this every year. Everyone is predicting everything. In about 7 hours the Dallas Cowboys will make their pick and revisionist history will be rewritten to say "Oh, everyone knew that's what they were going to do all along." B.S.
