    Ealy
    Pryor
    Dee Ford
    Easley
    Jernigan
    Hageman
    Tuitt

    From what I've heard they didn't have interest in Ha Ha, Ford, Jernigan, Hageman, Tuitt, or Nix. Not sure on Murphy, safe to say they didn't have him in the 2nd. They had Attaochu in the 4th according to Broaddus. Crichton was a medical risk but I'm not sure if they just dinged him a round or if he was in the box. Never heard anything on DE Martin.

    I think I heard Crichton had a history of neck stingers or something of that matter. If you remember last year both Ware & Hatcher had stinger problems that limited them somewhat and I think Will McClay is someone who is hesitant to draft players with injury issues.

    And what will we do when he doesn't?

    I don't know if he will or not and don't particularly care but I don't believe he will actually unseat Smith this year.

    They might go with him next year instead of resigning Smith but I don't think he'll take his spot.

    I think Shazier is, by far, the most interesting guy to follow, especially with Lee going down

    Ealy is my guy from that list, since he was a pet cat of mine. Attaochu, too, because I think we could have included him in a draft and not moved up for Lawrence.

    Yea, Mosley too, but I was under the impression that Shazier would have been the pick, not Mosley.

    I believe Broaddus said on one of the cowboys shows that the Cowboys had a 4th round grade on Attaochu.

    MAIN, there is a lot of guys on that list that were peaking interest for me early 1- 3 rounds deep in the Draft...including Ha ha, Shazier, Pryor, Suttton & Crichton...but especially Ealy, Jernigan, Tuitt, Murphy and Nix.

    On a side Note: Not sure why a 4th round grade would be put on any of these.

    According to the local new outlet here, Mosley has been running with the 1st team offense the last two camp dates for the Ravens and has received high praise from Suggs and Daryl Smith

    Remember how the draft would have gone down had the Cowboys not had near misses:

    1st-Ryan Shazier

    2nd-Kony Ealy

    3rd-Trai Turner

    4th-Justin Ellis

    Shazier is lighting it up and on the right path according to all reports(fans and media), also reported playing faster than his numbers which is a feat in itself. I have no regrets with us taking the Notre Dame guard he looks like the real deal with an attitude.

    The Cowboys were reported to have had Shazier high on their board, a lot more than the media rankings. My worry for him is that he's not a big guy and I wonder how he fares getting beat up inside in a 3-4.
