A lot of people, including myself, were really counting on Dallas taking Kelcy Quarles, Aaron Donald, or Kareem Martin in the 2nd round to help bolster the Dline. It will not happen. I think all three players will sneak into the 1st round with Quarles getting the biggest jump. I am beginning to worry that Chicago will take Quarles before Dallas does. Kelcy Quarles will be the fastest DT in this draft and he put together a very good junior year. He had a much better year than Tuitt and Hageman and will leapfrog them once the draft takes place. The more you see Donald play, the more you realize he will not be there in the 2nd round. He is very undersized but he dominated last year. He was so quick off the snap it was unreal. He was also able to hit the running back a lot in the backfield proving he could use his speed to stop the run. Another person I think that will go much higher than originally thought is Carraun Reid. He will go in the 2nd round and might even sneak into the 1st round. I think he will surprise on draft day and I would not be upset if Dallas took in with their 2nd round pick. He will be the 2nd fastest DT in this draft. Another person not getting a lot of hype is James Gayle. He will get a huge rise on the combine very similar to bruce Irvin. He will most likely have the fastest 40 time of all the DE in this draft. I am hoping he will still be there in the 3rd but will not be surprised if he goes in the 2nd. Karreem Martin will be a 1st round pick. He produced 11 sacks and has the physical skill set of a 1st rounder. Some team like Carolina or Seattle will spend a lower 1st round pick on him This is the draft. I would like to see happen. I know people will say these people are reaches but they will not be after the combine. 1st round pick Kelcy Quarles DT 6-3 298 lbs. He will most likely be the fastest DT in the draft. He will absolutely destroy the NFL combine and will experience a huge boost. A very quick twitch player who is perfect for the 3 tech spot. This is the most important position on this defense and Dallas has to get it right. I would hate to try and get him in the 2nd round and some team scoops him before Dallas can take him. Alternate pick Aaron Donald DT 6-0 285 lbs. I was tempted to take him before Quarles. Despite his size he absolutely dominated the completion last year. He might be the pick if Chicago takes Quarles to replace Melton. I would have no problem with taking him at 16 or 17. His game tape is the best of any DT in this draft and he had no one at Pittsburgh to take pressure off of him. Despite that he still beat double teams with his speed. 2nd round pick Carraun Reid DT 6-2 305 lbs. He will be the 2nd fastest DT in the draft this year. Despite his speed, he is very thick. Will be the exact type of lineman that Maranelli wants as the one tech. He was an absolute wrecking ball at Princeton. Like Poe is workout will raise his grade. I wouldn't be surprised if he was gone before Dallas has a chance in the 2nd round. Alternate pick Ego Ferguson DT 6-2 309 lbs. This guy is very fast. He did not get many sacks at LSU though. He has a good physical skill set and might respond well to Maranelli's coaching. He did play 1 tech at LSU which is a plus. Similar player to Bennie Logan. 3rd round pick James Gayle DE 6-4 255 lbs. This guy is blazing fast. Probably just as fast as DWare was coming out of the draft. I think he will also rise up due to a crazy workout at the combine. Like Bruce Irvin could be a surprise 1st round pick. If he is still around would be an ideal DE in this type of defense with his ability to get after the quarterback. This pick is based more on potential has he only got six sacks last year. Would have to put on a few pounds but that shouldn't be a problem. Alternate pick Jackson Jeffcoat 6-4 250 lbs. Will probably drop down to the 3rd round. He is a quick twitch athlete but does not have top end speed. Could stand to get a little bigger. I really like the fact that he produced at college. He has very good game tape just not as fast as you would like. 4th round pick QB Jimmy Garrapolo 6-2 222lbs I know people don't think this guy will make it to the 4th round, but I think he will. After the upper echelon quarterbacks are gone, other quarterbacks tend to drop just like Kirk Cousins and Ryan Nassib. I think Garrapolo will still be there in the 4th and dallas will be able to draft Romo's replacement. He passed for a lot of yards at Division II and has near flawless mechanics. alternate pick QB Taj Boyd 6-1 225 lbs. He is a very talented running quarterback. If Dallas cant get Jimmy this would be my second choice. Very similar player to Russell Wilson and carried his teams offense. This draft would completely rebuild the Dline with speed and would allow the defense to be run the way Maranelli envisions it. The reason I posted alternates is because Dallas cannot get obsessed with one player and just draft players that fit their scheme. By drafted 2 fast DTS and 1 fast DE this defense can get a dramatic overhaul. I would also like to draft a QB now in case Romo falls apart quickly.
