    The value board below is based on considerable feedback from NFL teams and projects the league value of players, pinpointing a specific area where players likely will be drafted. It is important to note that these values do not reflect where PFW thinks the players should be drafted or what type of pros they will become; that is better reflected in PFW's grades. Each round is divided into three parts: A (early), B (middle) and C (late). Thus, 2B signifies the middle of the second round. Players may be drafted higher or lower based on team needs and fits within certain schemes. The value board may not list the exact number of players in a round as there are actual selections. In some cases, more players are listed than will be drafted, especially in later rounds, because of the very minor difference between late-round draft picks and priority free agents.

    No sir, not at all! Been wishing he will be there in the 4th but his recovery is way ahead of schedule and I dont see it happening. Dallas wants him and I'm willing to bet a 3rd is the price they will.

    Im really hoping it happens!

    Wow...Shea McClellin in the middle of the 3rd, Jared Crick end of the 4th. That would be sweet.

    Based on this chart I see even more justification for trading entirely out of the first round and getting an extra first next year as well as getting maybe a 2nd and a 3rd this year in the process. Now we have 2 seconds, thirds and fourths.

    Based on this chart here's what I'd do:

    #2a. Trumaine Johnson
    #2b. Brandon Brooks
    #3a. Bruce Irvin
    #3b. Ryan Broyles
    #4a. Jared Crick
    #4b. Josh Norman

    Now I'm also set up with two first rounders next year. Hopefully one of them ends up in the top 10 where I can grab a future QB or perhaps an elite playmaker at another position (LB, DL, OT).

    McLellin is rated 1st-2nd round by NFL Draft Scout and Crick is rated 2nd round by NFL Draft Scout as well.

    Both would be high character and good players for us.

    "Sweet" wouldn't be the word with them both filling 2 big needs we have on defense.

    I'm not holding too much stock on this list after the mid 2nd round unfortunately.

    No offense, but yuck if this is what we would do in this draft.

    I don't want to trade out of the first round but Trumaine Johnson is a player and I'd love to get him with our second rounder.

    You could insert the CB and OG you want at the top of the 2nd. I think Dallas wants very physical CBs so that's why I went with those picks at CB. I'd prefer Brandon Boykin and Casey Heyward myself.

    As for the OG I like Brooks. Zeitler, Glenn and DeCastro will be off the board. The other guy I like is Silatolu but I prefer Brooks. I would have no qualms with Silatolu.

    I'd be happy with your scenario, and a chance to pick up maybe Logan Thomas next year.

    We wouldn't be so much trading out of the first round as much as we would be deferring our first round pick until next year. My hope is we luck out with a top 10 pick to grab a QB or an impact player.

    My problem with this year's pick is that we miss out on all the impact players this year because it lacks top-end talent. OTOH, it has lots of depth. So instead of drafting for the draft that you want (an impact player with the first pick) draft for the draft that you have (deep). So you trade down a whole bunch of stockpile picks in rounds 2-4 and defer your first rounder until next year where you hope for better luck with the draft picks you get.

    You have to remember that next year's draft is supposed to be strong at QB. It may be our chance to draft Romo's replacement and then groom him for a couple of years. If Romo is still going strong we can try and trade him for a big package of draft picks and go after Romo's replacement again.

    I've never heard of the OT Bobby Massie from Mississippi, but these rankings have him as a late first round pick? Interesting...

    Anyways, here's a mock where I overlapped PFW's projection with the Prospect List: Cowboy Tracker(Update 03/29) as well as other players linked to the Cowboys.

    Rd1: Mark Barron | S | Alabama
    Rd2: Trumaine Johnson | CB/FS | Montana
    Rd3: Bruce Irvin | OLB | West Virginia
    Rd4: Ryan Broyles | WR | Oklahoma
    Rd4Comp: Nick Foles | QB | Arizona
    Rd5: Rhett Ellison | TE | USC
    Rd6: Quinton Saulsberry | C | Mississippi State
    Rd7: Emmanuel Acho | ILB | Texas

    I tried to stay in the middle of each round(B), except with the 4th where I didn't find anyone I liked (and I really want Broyles to be drafted by the Cowboys:eek:hboy: ) and the 4th comp, which I basically count as an early 5th.
