    Most of that information sounds unbelievably stupid. I really hope the FO isn't thinking about 70% of those moves.

    I agree with OG and CB in the first two rounds. You don't pass of All-Pro talents and DeCastro could be just that at OG. It is a deep CB draft so I like the idea of picking one up in the second.

    I really hate the idea of going after Forte or DJax in FA since RB/WR are strengths and there is no reason to overpay for those players.

    I'd be happy to draft a QB to groom behind Romo but I still think it is a year too early do it. If there is a clear BPA then go ahead as they can be valuable trade chips later on. Garrett seems to have good QB instincts.

    I think anything said about free agency and the draft at this point should be taken with a mountain of salt.

    By moving Smith to LT and Free to RT, adding Nicks and drafting Decastro. Our line can become elite in one offseason if Decastro can perform right away.

    WE DO NO NEED ANOTHER SKILLED POSITION PLAYER

    We need to get better in the trenches. Murray will obviously be back next season and we saw what he could do (Nearly 900 yards rushing in only 8 starts) and Felix who is a great change of pace back. We are set @ runninback.

    I don't even see us doing that. Even if we lost Robinson I see us signing a cheaper replacement or going with Holley or Ogletree over overpaying for Desean.

    You oughta take a look at Bill Simmon's article on the 12 days of basketball, especially Day 13. He has a blurb on what a trade of Kobe to the Knicks could have done for his career and the NBA as a whole. Found it intriguing.

    its a message board.. not everyone is going to agree with you. No need to scream your opinions from the mountaintop.. its not going to effect what everyone thinks.

    Yeah I get all that, but I don't know how anyone or why anyone would want us to draft a RB early when that's a strength rather than try to fix one of our holes.

    Sounds like this guy is not informed- or maybe missed a couple recent meetings.

    I have no idea of the veracity of the info that the poster offered this time, but I can tell you that his early draft philosophy looks a lot like mine keeps coming up when I work on it...

    My favorites in the first are OG David DeCastro, OG Cordy Glenn and CB Chase Minnifield... there are a couple-three others that I like pretty well too, but those three are my top choices... I think any of them could step in and start for the Boys next season... I particularly think that Minnifield is going to be a very good pro ( live about 80 miles from Charlottesville, and get to see a lot of the Cavs on TV)...

    In the second, those favorites include FS Markelle Martin, C Ben Jones, CB Coryell Judie or OG Kevin Zeitler... if Peter Konz's health issues cause him to fall to the 2nd, as some are speculating it might, I'd find it a lot easier to take a chance on him with a second rounder rather than a first...

    That's 3 DBs, and 4 interior OL that I'd target in the first 2 rounds... you could go with DeCastro or Glenn in the first, then Martin or Judie in the second... or you could go with Minnifield in the first, then Jones or Zeitler in the second... either scenario would work just fine for me, but given that Minnifield is one of my pet cats, the second scenario seems to me to offer the best value...

    I can say that I'd like it if Griffin wound up a Cowboy this offseason... he'd certainly shore up the safety situation...

    What you need to realize is that stupid thoughts don't get smarter just because you put them in big fonts... and if the thought being expressed isn't stupid, there's really no need to "shout"...

    We can get rid of Felix. Matt Forte is a MEGA stud!

    You make a good point, except, can you name all the quarterbacks that played for the Cowboys between Aikman and Romo. The Cowboys had no one ready to take Aikman's place, even though it was quite evident he was at the end of his career.

    While JJ has a pretty poor record of hitting on mid to late round draft picks, one has to hope Garrett and Ryan can bring some success there also.

    Alexander What's it going to be then, eh?

    He also will want to get MEGA paid. It is not going to happen.
