    Cowboys selected one Larry Allen

    10th lineman overall selected

    9 lineman selected in rd 1 this year

    We had the chance to grab a complete road grading LA type at pick 47

    But we seem to forget how a dominant O-Line wins Superbowls

    Wright-Donovan-Gregg-Allen-Newton-Williams etc etc

    And yet we wonder why we can't win

    Will you be happy if we get Clabo and Moore this week? Clabo probably more likely than Moore unless Costa has no chance of being healthy.

    This offense will be bar none the best in the league if we get him. Romo doesn't need the 90s wall, just enough time to look down the field without puncturing a lung in the process.

    are you suggesting that warford or waters is the equivalent of larry allen?

    and are you aware that not a single offensive guard was taken in the 2nd round?

    The only player with a shot of a Larry Allen type career was drafted, to our dismay, before we ever got on the clock.

    As to your other points of reference, not exactly a walking advertisement for taking OLs all that early:

    Wright- 7th round, drafted as a TE
    Donovan- 4th round, drafted as a DE
    Gregg- 2nd round
    Allen- 2nd round
    Newton- UDFA
    Williams- 3rd round

    I thought he was talking about Frederick. He's a road grader. Little higher than 47 though.

    He's probably thinking of Larry Warford...who may not have any better of an NFL career than Ronald Leary.

    WT Frederick has Larry Allen type strength but not the feet. Allen was probably one of the best examples of a "dancing bear". Warmack was the closest prospect to Larry Allen this year but he would be hard pressed to play T.

    If we get a FA lineman,it will be the cheapest one.Someone we can neatly fit under the cap.

    Neither, really, but I was thinking Warmack when I posted that. But Cooper's got a shot at being a very good player, too. Maybe great. They probably won't both be all-time greats, though.
