    That's a lengthy title.

    It's the off-season so time for pointless games to boost our Cowboys-ego, yay!

    Add whoever you'd like and use whatever criteria you feel is best.

    L.P. Lodouceur is on his second 5 year extension with the Cowboys and is the best long snapper in the NFL or CFL. He also had 7 sacks 48 tackles and a forced fumble his senior year in high school

    I literally spent some time on this lol. Had to go through every player I felt was better at each position.

    Dez Bryant, WR - 2nd ranked WR in the league

    Terrance Williams, WR - 42nd ranked WR in the league

    DeMarco Murray, HB - 7th ranked RB in the league

    Tyron Smith, LT - 3rd ranked OT in the league

    Travis Frederick, C - 9th ranked C in the league

    Sean Lee, ILB - 10th ranked ILB in the league (Could have been higher..Believe he is better than some guys ahead of him but needs to stay healthy to be ranked ahead of them in my opinion..His lack of availability decreases his value)

    Brandon Carr, CB - 33rd ranked CB in the league

    Morris Claiborne, CB - 47th ranked CB in the league

    Henry Melton, DT - 8th ranked DT in the league

    Dan Bailey, K - 4th ranked K in the league

    Wow you spent too long on this! ;) Your rankings pass the eyeball test for me though. You forgot Romo.
    All those you ranked 8th or lower I feel could, by the end of the season, likely rise. But then I always feel that way this time of year.

    Interesting thread concept but I think the player selection is weird.

    I didn't want too many but there were some players I really wanted to get in there.
    Removed him by mistake lol. I'd argue he's higher than #8, probably #5.

    Witten is #1 IMO. Most complete tight end in the game and has been for quite some time. Durability never an issue, elite route runner and soft hands. Good to great blocker.

    You can't ask for a more complete package. Can do things split wide, tight against the line, or out of the backfield.

    Interesting topic, definitely would be fun to sit down and actually rank a list of the positions. Sadly I don't have enough time because Houston Rockets are about the come on! :D

    Off the top of my head though, *most likely forgetting some great players* I'd rank them like this.

    Tony Romo, QB - High = top 6 / Low = top 10

    Dez Bryant, WR - High = top 3 / Low = top 6

    Terrance Williams, WR - High = top 30 / Low = top 50

    DeMarco Murray, HB - High = top 7 / Low = top 12

    Tyron Smith, LT - High = top 3 / Low = top 5

    Travis Frederick, C - High = top 6 / Low = top 12

    Sean Lee, ILB - *If Healthy* High = top 5 / Low = top 10

    Brandon Carr, CB - High = top 20 / Low = top 32

    Morris Claiborne, CB - High = top 40 / Low = top 64

    Henry Melton, DT - ???

    Dan Bailey, K - High = top 3 / Low = top 5

    Tony Romo, QB - 12th.
    Dez Bryant, WR - 5th.
    Terrance Williams, WR - 45th.
    DeMarco Murray, HB - 7th.
    Tyron Smith, LT - 3rd.
    Travis Frederick, C - 9th.
    Sean Lee, ILB - 8th... would be higher, but just can't be depended on.
    Brandon Carr, CB - 20th.
    Morris Claiborne, CB - 60-70th.
    Henry Melton, DT - Pre-injury: 5.
    Dan Bailey, K - I really think he's the best K in the game right now.

    Five? I'll give you a couple, but there aren't five better LT's than Tyron right now.

    The great thing about the Rowdy avatar is that it makes it remarkably easy for me to identify who to put on ignore.

    I get where he's coming from with Witten, there are definitely better guys playing TE.
