    TFY is Tony Pauline site, so he does have league sources FWIW. Most interesting is how far Jenkins fell or is considered a risk, and how highly regarded Zeitler is by some.

    yep, some pretty big shockers there

    more and more i am thinking that dallas will take DL or OLB at 14 (unless if they trade down)

    with Poe, Ingram, Cox, etc available, no way we pass up whoever of these is available

    no way we take OL

    I thought the combine was to be taken with a grain of salt, do real football fans/people really think like this or is this another journalistic exercise. I like what Poe and some of the others did but I did not blow up my list/wants. You are molded by fire with this game to discount past experience, well you should not have a website called draftinsider.
    Still liking and hoping some of these guys fall into our net I do not care how and when: Wonder how many are Cowboys at the end
    Hightower, Baron, Decastro, Jake Bequette, Ronell Lewis, Shea McCellin, Janell Fleming, Zach Brown, Broderick Binns, Brandon Boykin, and Fletcher Cox

    Ingram at 4 truly shows how much pass rush is valued, even though nobody knows where to play him.

    Nah, the most interesting by far is Poe ranked 3rd.

    Alot of arguing going on here about him, but I still believe it won't matter.

    He won't be there when we pick anyway.

    Pauline realized he left Kalil off the list and will fix. I imagine number 3.

    I think J Jenkins goes in the top 20. Dallas could trade down 4-5 spots and still get an impact player, IMO. That would gain what, an extra 3rd?

    Did I miss some amazing feat performed by Melvin Ingram at the combine? There's just no way anyone can justify him being the 4th best prospect in the draft. He has just adequate size and about average athletic ability. He's a good prospect, but #4 is probably 10 spots too high.

    He has just adequate size and average athletic ability and you feel he's about the 14th best player in this draft?

    Size and speed aren't everything. He's a versatile and smart player. I think he can be good, but physically he's going to be limited to a certain point. I also think he's being overrated because he happens to be the best 3-4 OLB in this draft class, which is a position that usually goes early.

    I know what you mean.

    I was told Ingram "blew up" the combine, but it turns out his numbers were rather ho-hum.

    6'1.5" 264 lbs

    4.79 forty
    1.72 10-yard split
    9'1" broad jump

    He was very good in the 3-cone: 6.83

    I think in a more talent laden draft, Ingram would be a 15-25 type of prospect.

    His workout #'s aren't any more impressive than Perry, Mercilus, McClellin, or Branch. Like I said, I think Ingram is being overrated because he's the best OLB in the class. Where would you rank Ingram in last years draft class? Would you rank him ahead of Quinn or Kerrigan who went 14th and 16th?

    That may be true but I couldn't imagine ever having a player in my top 15 overall who I considered to have only average athletic ability.

    That's not true.

    His agility numbers were off the charts for a guy that size. His broad jump was weak (probably a technique issue considering his vert) and his 40 time was very bleh. But the rest of his numbers were good and he looked great in drills.

    I'd rate him about even with Robert Quinn of last year but Quinn had some character concerns and sat out a year of football which is why he hit double digits in the draft.

    Kerrigan is an interesting comparison. He was faster in the 40 than Ingram. Slower in the 3 cone and short shuttle. He was better in the bench press by 3 reps and far better in the broad jump but slightly less in the vert. Kerrigan had a phenomenal college career but looked a bit stiff in the drills at the combine. Ingram looked great in the drills at the combine but played inside at DT and even at middle linebacker collegiately.
