    Don't see the point on wasting a high pick on a non-elite QB prospect just on the off-chance he might turn into something

    Wait a couple years, do your best to give Romo everything you can in the meantime, and take one in the first round when he's only got a year or two left.

    DeSean Jackson? He doesn't quite fit the RKG mold Garrett preaches.

    The last thing we need is more skill players on offense. I like the OG and DB in the high rounds. I think we need to go after a DB and OG/C in FA too. DL NEEDS to be addressed no if's and's or butt's. (Yea.. i did that.)

    Focus on the trenches Cowboys braintrust.. lets go.

    I agree with taking the best available guard in either the first or second rounds. The DB as alternate choice is a tougher question unless we are going to get a pressure player for up front to compliment Ware from the FA market.

    Griffin would be a nice pick up but there will be competition to get his services. I think Forte is IR now so it is early to be throwing his name out there, Jackson? Is he ready to be an adult now, or what?

    Lissemore is a good player, but a true pressure guy at DE, OLB, or NT is a must. We just have to get better pressure up front, Ware can't do it all by himself. Can't believe the need is not even mentioned.

    Just say no to a top 4 pick at either RB or QB this draft. Fifth round or later- fine. But we have more pressing needs than RB or 3rd QB this off season.

    Desean Jackson being signed means Laurent Robinson won't be signed.

    Austin, Dez and Jackson? Witten to boot?

    No flippin way. Too much $ sunk into WR.

    Can see us wanting Griffin but he's our top target FA?

    Need interior OL badly, a talented CB, another pass rusher on the d-line and at LB.

    But we're going to sink $ at WR with Austin, Dez and Witten on this team. Not to mention Demarco Murray and Felix.

    I can see the rb and QB.

    Matt Forte and DeSean Jackson? No way. Not saying the poster is BSing but we need to go for the big uglies this offseason.

    I can see us drafting a COP back in the later rounds. Just in case Felix gets too expensive.

    Matt Forte makes negative sense, we've already got two good backs. Why pay top dollar for a third?

    Neither does D. Jackson. He's going to want #1 type of money. It would be better to sign Robinson if we do sign any FA WR for next season.

    I, for one, appriciate you taking the time to post it, as you clearly think its legit info and its a good topic of discussion if nothing else.. i just think some of the things listed make little to no sense.

    On the other hand, that might be how we know its legit.

    I'm with you. I don't buy the Jackson or Forte speculation at all. What, are we also in the market for a high-profile tight end?

    oh i doubt this offseason comes out looking like anyone is predicting right now.

    i see a lot of grubbs, nicks talk right now...i doubt we get either one.

    also, lets not forget this is JERRY JONES we are talking about. nothing ever goes as planned. expect some "spice".

    Only way we go after ******an Jackson is if we lose Robinson which I don't see happening. We don't need any more skilled position players we need to get better in the trenches.

    Lissemore will get a payday, because .. ? He's a backup NT, who is getting paid like a NT. He is also signed through '13. :confused:

    I'd love to see Michael Griffin come to Dallas as a replacement for Elam (and I like Elam too).

    I don't see what sense in going after Matt Forte would be.

    Jerry went after Asomugha hard I see no reason why he won't go after Nicks.
