Discussion in 'Draft Zone' started by lane, Dec 16, 2005.
Carpenter won't be in the first round
QB - Omar Jacobs is a better prospect in that range
WR - Todd Watkins has more size and speed
CB - Kelly Jennings has size and speed, Henry is not fast and is injury prone
OT - should be filled in free agency
QB - D J Shockley, need a quality backup to Jacobs
C - should be filled in free agency
Trade Bledsoe and Spears for additional picks and bring in McNair to start until Jacobs is ready
Henry has missed 6 games in 5 years. How is that "injury prone"?
Why would you trade Spears?
You certainly don't know much about this guy if you seriously think he will fall to day 2 of the draft. No way he even makes it out of the 2nd round let alone out of the first day. He would easily be a 1st round pick if not for his injury and if he comes back and plays against ND and plays well I fully expect him to move back into round 1.
I would love to see him or AJ Hawk in a Cowboys uniform next season or even Holmes at WR, but I don't think it'll happen. I think our needs along the offensive line far outweigh our LB or WR problems. Get a good, young, tough C and that'll go along ways to strengthing the line.
I like Marcus McNeil (OT, Auburn) or Ahmad Brooks (LB, UVA) in the 1st round.
Get a FS and C via free agency. Those positions require real knowledge and experience generally.
