    Curious, what do you plan on doing with Ratliff? Let him go? In my opinion he's been our best DL thus far this year and should be on this team next season.

    I think many of us (me included) think Ratliff will be a great DE in the 3-4. Drafting a NT and moving Ratliff to DE means the Cowboys can let free agent Chris Canty walk.

    Last year two DT's were obtained in trades before the draft... Kris Jenkins and Shaun Rogers. That kind of move could be an option for the Cowboys as well.

    Does anybody know which NT's are available in free agemcy this upcoming offseason? I think other than safety, NT is our biggest need in the offseason.

    Nevermind. I found this at Scout.com. Doesn't look like there is that many good true Nose Tackles other than Haynesworth(which I doubt will happen).

    Looks our best bet would be in the draft or a trade. I like all the prospects listed in the first post of this thread, but what do you guys think of Terrance Taylor out of Michigan. He's a little on the short side at 6-0, but I heard that can sometimes be good for NT's. He wieghs a stout 308 lbs. I still think the Boston College DT's are better though.

    The knock that read on BJ is that he thinks he is better than he is, worth ethic is questionable, and gets tired easily. He was also academcially ineligible last year. That criticism might be good for the Cowboys as his draft stock might drop becasue of it. I hope so, so we can pick him in the 3rd round with Cleveland's pick. Praying that Herman Johnson last to our pick in 2nd round. But that might be difficult because we will picking last.

    Technically I'm sure if you wanted too you could say that about most BIG lineman, that they tire easy.

    One name that was hyped a lot last year was Branch from Michigan. Haven't heard his name once this year...:confused:

    Could be cause of him being too tall like I was mentioning, he's 6'-6 330, was touted as a top 15 pick for sure but slid to round 2.

    BJ Raji will probably be available when we pick in round 4 and Terrence Taylor/Ron Brace are probably 5th or 6th rounders. Big NTs almost always seem to drop on draft day. Obviously there are exceptions like Haloti Ngata a few years ago, but BJ Raji imo is no more impressive than Red Bryant (4th round) or Frank Okam (5th round). Because of how pass oriented the league is, the smaller active guys get drafted early while the NT type players fall.

    i am not a totally UT homer. I have not always been cool with Roy. I have felt that he has underachieved. However, this year, he has been a force. He is also a big reason why Orakpo is able to come clean and free on many occasions. Roy is eating up 2-3 blockers down there.

    Another reason that I didn't want him was because he is only about 300 lbs. He isn't that 350 wide body. In our system he would probably be more of a DE. However, I think Ratliff and Miller would make a great DT rotation for us.
