    This is my list of some players that might be available in the 2nd or 3rd rounds.

    I seems that trading down in the 1st to get and extra 2nd or 3rd could be really valuable this year.

    3-4 OLB
    Anthony Barr
    Ezekiel Ansah
    Cornellius Carradine
    Brandon Jenkins
    Corey Lemonier
    Michael Buchanan
    Chase Thomas

    Dline
    Sharrif Floyd
    Sylvester Williams

    Safety
    Kenny Vaccaro
    Matt Elam
    Eric Reid
    Tony Jefferson
    Shawn Williams
    Bacarri Rambo
    D.J. Swearinger
    Robert Lester

    WR
    Cordarrelle Patterson
    Tavon Austin

    OL - Interior
    Khaled Holmes
    Barrett Jones

    Alvin Bailey

    OT and OT/OG
    Jake Matthews
    Eric Fisher

    Hope this is accurate and Chase Thomas falls through the crack to us in the second rd, "Chase will impact at the linebacker position in any style of defense, but his impact seems to be as an OLB in a 3-4 defense. In this defense, he can be used like Clay Mathews because of his mature pass rushing skills, instincts, football intelligence and the ability to shut down the run on the line of scrimmage. The problem is that Chase is also a very good cover linebacker and could easily play as a OLB in a 4-3 defense. Chase will be a terrific linebacker in a 4-3 defense, but he will be a dominating OLB in a 3-4 defense, close to the line of scrimmage." per the huddle report in other words another Sean Lee/Bruce Carter clone with a Stanford education.

    That would not be a bad start to the draft.

    Hopefully we can trade back in the first and pick up another 2nd. If that happens, then I'd go:

    1. Barrett Jones, G/C/OT
    2. Dallas Thomas, OT
    2. Kenny Vaccaro, FS
    3. Brandon Carradine, DE
    4. Bacarri Rambo, SS
    5. Stepfan Johnson, RB
    6 & 7 - O-Line/D-Line

    Interesting. 2 safeties? All of a sudden we would have a ton of depth there.

    Sensabaugh
    Peprah
    Church
    McCray
    Johnson
    Rambo
    Vaccaro

    Who would make the team next year?

    I doubt they will take a safety. Church and Sensabaugh are locked in for the next couple of years, McCray probably stays because there's no one capable of replacing him on special teams, and they will keep Matt Johnson for at least 1 more year a la AOA

    1. Warmack
    2. Sharrif Floyd/Kawann Short/Sylvester Morris
    3. Jenkins/Carradine/Corey Lemonier/Michael Buchanan
    4. Christine Michael/Gillislee/Denis Johnson

    Take a project WR and OT in rounds 6 and 7.

    Nice list. Some underclassmen currently under the radar but will be in that mix if they declare. Some may be end up closer to being first rounders though.

    OLB
    Kyle Van Noy, BYU (6'3"/240)
    -- fun fact: KvN's position coach is Brady 'Batman Shape' Poppinga's brother.

    WR
    Brandon Coleman, Rutgers (6'5" / 220) rSoph

    DE
    Re'shede Hageman, Minnesota (6'5" / 310)
    -- Switched over from TE in 2011

    FS
    Ed Reynolds, Stanford (6'2" / 210)
    -- Reynolds lost all of 2011 to injury and could be classed a redshirt Soph., but he's draft eligible either way. Great in 2012. Might be the best FS in college.

    OL
    David Yankey, LT/G, Stanford (6'5" / 305)
    Cameron Fleming, RT, Stanford (6'6" / 315)
    Xavier Su'a-Filo, G, UCLA (6'4" / 310)

    Su'a-Filo did very well vs Star Lotulelei earlier in the year and is a little older. He started at LT as a true freshmen in 2009, then went on a Mormon mission. Played LG this year.

    2nd round S and OL

    3rd OL

    (Using the trade down for an extra 2nd)

    Any combo of B.Jones, Chase Thomas, Brandon Jenkins, Jefferson, Bailey, Sly Williams and Ansah would make me very happy as a Cowboy fan.

    Depends on free agency and on what we do in round 1. Based on your list, and conventional thinking, I'd love it if we could draft one of the NTs in round 1 (star lotulelei will be gone, but Jonathan Hankins or Kwame Geathers may be available) and in round 2 get Jake Matthews and round 3 Travis Frederick to play at RG.

    No guarantee that Church comes back the same.

    I notice a lot of people have Vaccaro going in the second, is he that good to warrant a 2nd round pick? I ask because I do not watch much college football (except for when the longhorns play cause thats my alma mater) and every time I watch he is always blowing coverages and missing tackles, is there something I am missing?

    I think you are gonna see Vaccaro rise into the first round. I don't see him miss that many coverages. He does try to go lights out and hit people instead of wrapping up. He is always around the ball and hits hard. He really reminds me of Roy in that aspect and I believe needs to go to a system that can let him roam like Troy Polamalu. So yes I believe he is that good.

    But given the fact that they just gave him a new deal, that starting job is pretty much guaranteed to be his from day 1 of 2013 training camp so I don't see them taking a safety in this draft

    Maybe. If it were me and I had a safety high on the board in the second, I pull the trigger. It has been a position that has killed us for far too long.

    Does anyone have the specifics of Sense's contract?
