    Speaking from experience with back problems there is a good chance we draft top 5.

    Run game should be a force with Freddy, smith, and Martin ...if Garrett and Lineham will allow it.
    Then play action will actually have so e meaning.

    Not the worst thing in the world. We are building for the future. Romo will not be apart of that future and I wish we would not have signed him to that toxic contract. We aren't contending next year at all.

    Do we target an RB?

    I think Demarco can be a pro-bowler (not a fill in pro-bowler) behind this O-Line if we run more like we should. But I think it's time we start to build a committee and really try to dominate the LOS and control the clock. Maybe after the 3rd round we should start considering RB's.

    Well the CBs were gone. Shazier gone. I thought maybe they'd go with a S there but shows at least they didn't want to spend a 1st on one so must think between Johnson, Heath, and Wilcox they might have a player.

    Well since he's a T, G and C then I guess that makes him okay.

    This year most likely although not be too surprised if he can't beat Leary or Mack out. I think he'll beat one or sub for an injury but I'm just penciling him in at G for now.

    Another thing: suddenly I'm not afraid of that 49er front 7 on opening night. :)

    When they interviewed him, he sounded genuinely happy to be coming to Dallas; especially during the "phone call" form Garrett and Linehan...pretty happy about him...he has just enough of an edge to him to build with Fred, Ty and Leary (and possibly free) for the future

    You know Murray is pumped.

    Should be great value at the position. But yeah, can't see it before the 4th or later.

    Sad thing is in Garrett's head this means we can just pass more.

    The reality is that we've been going through season after season living on HOPE. We hope so and so pans out. We hope so and so's healthy. We hope Romo's back is ok. This is not how to run a team. We need to cover our bases. Romo's career may end this year. I'm not advocating taking Manziel, but we need to look for Romo's replacement ... now.

    We can't wait like we did with Aikman ... where we finished the season with Anthony Wright, and then panic by drafting Quincy Carter in the 2nd round. We need to find someone to groom between Friday and Saturday.

    Exactly.

    Is there any doubt we are rebuilding?

    The rest of the draft is way more critical than this pick of Martin.

    We'll see.

    I am stoked for the 2nd and 3rd round tonight. Keep the momentum going with the Martin pick. No head scratchers or off the wall picks. Value, value, value.

    I thought the best pick of the first round was the Vikings selecting Bridgewater at 32.

    The worst pick was the Dolphins' selection of Ja'Wuan James. With an honorable mention to the Eagles reaching for Marcus Smith.

    The ESPN set tonight and the rest of the draft is Berman, Mel, Dilfer and McShay. A much better panel than what they did in the first round. That was a horrible decision going with Gruden and Ray Lewis. They were NFLN bad.

    Not if Martin was grading out higher. Draft is not just need and there are other top players to be had in this draft. Dallas will take defensive players but being smart and taking the best player who also helps fill a need is important with that move we not only gain a starter but a guy who can play LT, RT and some say Center we also add depth with guys who played last season and faired well.

    Didn't like the Fins pick. Bridgewater will be ok at least. I think the Eagles could have gotten a player. I saw him as late first at best upper second at worst. He's a player.
