    You prefer to overpay for the JAG's that left?

    That's part of the problem they can't draft ends at all. We have been told for years we have to have a better rush, it never happens, and now your secondary depth is gone and going to be replaced by rookies and guys off the scrap heap

    He's better inside or as a 3-4 DE.

    I am willing to bet that one of the top three picks Dallas makes in this years draft will be a TE. I will go as far as saying there is a 50% chance they will take a TE in the 1st.

    I know you don't want a TE but I'd take a stud TE over some ho hum player that plays a position of need.

    CB is a deep position in this draft but i'm not passing up on David Njoku for some ho hum defensive player.

    I'll take the stud RDE over the stud corner any day but I don't see the RDE stud being available with our pick but there is some high upside corners that will be there.

    I know everyone is obsessed with pass rush but we won't ever get to the QB if we allow QB's to drop back 3 steps and release over and over. You gotta give the rush a little time to get home.

    Two starters would be OK, three would be much better and four would be super. No need to settle when great things are possible.

    No sure. You could well be right. I would still like to see some real heat put on QB's. To me, that would make the secondary players much better...especially if the club intends to go with a lot of younger, less experienced DB...etc.

    Every Cowboys fan loves Irving, hes a freak, but be honest with yourself; he had 2 games with games in between and after where he ghosted.

    This is funny. I also have been thinking we can get by with 2 starters out of this draft.

    The difference is I have been thinking SS and CB.

    That's asinine to think he's better than Irving. I really do think Irving is going to blossom this year and have double digit sacks. The guy has the makings of a potential superstar.

    You could probably take the original post one step farther. Arguably Tapper may be your war daddy at DE. We just don't know yet.

    Green is probably better than almost any rookie we could draft at RT. It's purportedly a weak OL class this year. There are a couple we could draft early who might be an improvement but there are no guarantees to that.

    We are weak in several areas and not all of them are likely to be addressed in the draft. If we stick to our draft board and draft BPA we could end up with three from the following positions in the first five rounds (pass rushers/DBs).

    That would fit in nicely with needs and would probably not be forcing the pick. Someone is likely to fall to our pick at 28. If Mixon falls that far you pull the trigger on him and get an equivalent pass rusher or DB in the second or third round. He is almost like getting another Zeke at 28.

    One of the tight ends might fall too. We just need to get playmakers wherever they can be found. If we stop missing on picks then we will get additional picks in the draft to show for it.

    It is better to have two Zekes or two Fredbeards on your roster than one Shante Carver or Ebeneezer Ekuban who are third round talents at best and waste a high pick just to say you "addressed the position".
