    reports are coming in now on duke robinson og from oklahoma that his work etchic especially at college is in question now, if he falls should we take him and how far do you think he will fall?

    i heard this on smoaky ktbb show, smoaky said reports are coming in with reg flag on duke now;

    so what do you think?

    You mean the Cowboys have a red flag on him? Or just generally?

    I'll say it again, I prefer Loadholt over Robinson right now.

    Loadholt can play RT and OG. His versatility suits us better - esp as he can play OT.

    On top of that, he's ranked higher than Robinson by many, including Goose's rankings.

    I'm off the band wagon. I'd take him in round 4.

    i dont know what teams have a red flag on him, what smoaky said on air on ktbb was that reports are coming out now that duke robinson didnt work out like he should have at college, and now he has a red flag on him, so again, dont know what teams have the red flag on him, but evidently some do now

    also, you have to keep in mind, what this could be is that some teams started something to get the player to drop so they could get him, you know like smokescreens;

    its like way back in the 60's when the president kennedy got shot, mel renfro smashed his hand on a window, supposedly the cowboys spread a rumor that renfros hand didnt have feeling in it, and he might not could play football, etc
    so renfro dropped alittle for the cowboys to draft him

    NAHHH I always though he was overvalued on here. There's been zero buzz about the guy and you'd think we would hear more about him. He looks like a big slob that will get beat by the fast DT and Tucks of the world. No thanks. I'd rather stick with Holland and get a Caldwell in the 4th.

    i still think he will be a monster in 2 years, after he realizes how much money he has lost

    but at same time, he can not be willing to work and fail, so you just dont know, thats where your scouts come in

    I do not like Robinson as much as some do. If he were to slip to the 4th round, I think he would be a very good value but I would not like to see us take him in the 2nd or 3rd but if he managed to somehow slip to the 4th, I would be happy with that pick. JMO

    I don't see what's so much to like about him in the first place, other than he's big. He looks lazy and ends up on the ground a lot if you ask me.

    well what i saw on film of him and in bowl game etc, he looked great, maybe im missing something

    like i said, i have been wrong on some players and wont be the last, but moreso im more right then i am wrong on players in the draft;

    I think he has personality issues, too. If he falls out of round two, I guess Kiper was right. Gosselin has him rated in the later third as you know.

    I want offensive linemen, so I jumped on his wagon. He is supposed to be rated higher. The Cowboys probably like many things about him. However, if his work ethic is in question, they probably will not draft him.

    I think he's there at 51, and I don't think the Cowboys will take him there, especially after seeing Gosselin's rankings.

    I really think not competing at the Senior Bowl hurt him.

    Lousy game versus Florida, the best DLine he faced last year.
