    Outside of a franchise QB, this would be a dream come true type pick for the Cowboys next year.

    I like Shilique Calhoun MSU

    Big, fast and physical are the traits defensive coaches covet in defensive ends at the pro level. That's why NFL scouts are already buzzing about the pro prospects of the Michigan State standout after watching him tally 7.5 sacks and 14 tackles for loss as a redshirt sophomore. Additionally, Calhoun recorded two forced fumbles, 4 fumble recoveries and an interception, while also adding three defensive touchdowns -- tied for most in the FBS in 2013.

    Measuring 6-4, 257 pounds with long arms, Calhoun is a stout player at the point of attack, exhibiting brute strength and power on the edge. Although he flashes enough speed and quickness to get home on speed rushes, he is a street fighter adept at pummeling opponents with force. Thus, Calhoun is ideally suited to play left defensive end in a scheme that allows him to wreak havoc against the run or pass from the strong side.

    Leonard is amazing to watch. He's strong, quick, agile...just overall powerful yet somehow smooth.

    I know this is football blasphemy but he reminds me of a young Reggie White.

    Yea he's a stud. Some real quality DL that could come out next year Williams, Gregory and Calhoun should be near the top.
