    Im torn between #2 and #3, #3 gives us alot of flexability and gets us 4 possible big time contributers, but #2 gives us 2 possible stars....

    Option 1 is out of the question. No way in hell does Carlos Rogers drop to the second round. I doubt he drops out of the top 20.

    I don't think Sean Cody is worth a 1st round pick. Scrap that one.

    Option 3 looks ok but we'd have to have a trading partner for that.

    Option 4 makes no sense. Why draft two DEs in a row?

    Marcus Spears is a 3-4 DE and Tuck would be outside LB.

    Option 3 would be sweet. I would really like Baas and Webster in the 2nd.

    One of these days, I will have to get one of those draft previews so I have a bloody idea about whom you are typing :cool:

    That's not necessary. Just follow College Football a little closer and you'll be able to recognize almost every player mentioned.

    I think that would be solid...not great or glitzy, but solid.

    I put this out there because I'm curious as to how folks will feel if we draft almost all defense with the exception of MW or BE...these defensive players I've listed are mainly 3-4 guys...except CB's of course...does not matter the scheme really.

    I personally think this is how we will draft...finding players that will fit into the 3-4 scheme.

    Well Mrs CanadianCowboysFan allows me the luxury of watching 10+ hours of football on Sunday, no way she lets me do the same on Saturday ;) I like my testicles right where they are thank you very much.

    I like option 3 & 4.

    If we could land a good WR in free agency (Jerry Porter?) than it would be a no-brainer....Merriman, Johnson and Webster would improve the Cowboy defense immensely.

    I just think that Edwards would be a risky pick. (Mich. WR) Williams would be good, but he won't stretch the field much. If anything, I would go DT Hawthorne, DE Merriman, OG Baas, and CB Webster or whichever other top CB drops. I would take a flyer on WR Williamson in with the 20th or trade down and get him.

    I would like to take Derrick Johnson and Shawne Merriman in the 1st. It might be a long shot, but hey, it could happen. Then DE's in the 2nd. Marcus Spears maybe. Coakley, Nguyen, Johnson, and Merriman. That would be nice.
    We can always pick up a solid CB and WR in the free agent market...hopefully.

    This year I have a philosophy that we are going to take the best CB with our 2nd round pic...there will be a good one that falls. I think we could make due with any of these guys...PacMan Jones, Carlos Rogers, Corey Webster, Justin Miller, Brandon Browner, or Marlin Jackson...one will fall.

    I think the FA CB market costs way to much money and we will avoid it...JMHO.

    It isn't even close. Option 1 in a landslide.

    I just don't think option #1 is realistic.

    Hos, option one is, in the words of spock, "Illogical captain".
