    Nolan Nawrocki writes that it is created with "considerable feedback from NFL teams" (whatever that really means), and it's interesting to see the value of some players Cowboys fans have discussed.

    For instance, Reggie Nelson is an early-second round value, according to the charts, while Usama Young (a corner Dallas brought in that I thought was a late-round prospect) has a late second-round value.

    I like how they do that. That's about how I imagined Jeff Ireland's board to look like.

    The way Ireland talked about it a few weeks ago, I'd think so. It seems that he has the draft picks grouped in tiers like that, so Dallas valuing one player over another when it picks might not be the case. It might simply be the Cowboys picking from a group of players they consider similarly valued like this.

    (I don't like, however, that the players I want most in the first and second rounds are valued ahead of where we pick. :mad:)

    maybe its just me but i love the thought of trading down... im so glad i keep hearing about us trading down to get 2 2nd rounders... because basically i think that a late 1st and an early 2nd are basically the same thing in this years draft

    He hasn't fallen. That's about where he was always projected.

    what i thought he was day 2... i know hes rated behind Kolb Edwards Stanton and other QBs hes probably even behind Palmer since Palmer has the mechanics and the Carson connection... i wouldnt be pissed if we took Palmer in the 5th.

    Yeah, it's all fuzzy in that area. He could go late 3rd all the way to 5th round. He's certainly not now, nor has he ever been, a 2nd rounder.

    Wasted draft pick. You only own the rights for one year. He isn't quitting baseball before draft day 2008.

    Tavaris Bain (sp?), is a real intriguing CB. From what I've read he has first round type physical atributes, he transfered from Miami to a small school.

    He's kind of hard to scout because of the competition, but his skills are enticing. I like these kind of guys with late round picks.

    Yeah, I like using these and Goose's top 100 when looking at who we draft.

    Of course, I also know not to overvalue these charts because often players like Patrick Crayton, Pat McQuistan, etc., aren't even listed and some of those second-day values prove they should have received first-day consideration.

    Am I reading this chart right?

    Does his chart say there are only 15 players with 1 RD grades and only 15 with second RD grades???

    I don't get it. Maybe I'm just having brain cramps. :confused:
