    I saw what they did on Talkin Cowboys and wanted to start it here. 3 rounds of stock picks on players that you think are going to suprise with their contributions.

    Round 1
    Bruce Carter - Too good to not be a beast. Love how Marinelli seems to have gotten him on track. Understanding the system will go a long ways into him getting better. Im sure Lee has been working with him in the film room too.

    Prediction for Carter, Probowl

    Round 2
    Gavin Escobar - They are already involving him into more of the system, lining him up in the slot and outside wide. This guys IMO is going to break out this yr. Not a monster season but enough to be a factor.

    Prediction 40 rec 650 yrds 8 TDs

    Round 3
    Ben Gardner - Think he is going to suprise alot of people when when the hitting starts. The guy has the build of a vet already. He doesnt look like no rookie. I could def see him competing for snaps.

    Prediction 6 sacks 2015 starter

    Great picks, a fan of all except your prediction on a probowl for Carter. Even if he has a stellar year, he will need to have a few back to back to become a household name for Joe Schmo in Montana to vote for him.

    If Escobar had 8 TDs and Ben Gardner had 6 sacks...
    I'll allow Penelope Cruz to sleep with me.

    Since we're living in dream land...all aboard!

    Seriously, if either (not both, either) happens, we will top 8-8 , IMO.

    If the team is willing to put Escobar on the field regularly, he'll produce.

    What I didn't understand last year was why we drafted a guy who we absolutely knew would not be adequate as a blocker (few TE coming into the league are) and refused to play him. I fully expected we'd line him up wide like you see so many TEs doing these days

    Crazy predictions. I don't see carter doing that or Escobar. I can see Gardner tho. With the rotations and how marinelli is with the dline I can see him MAYBE getting 4-6 sacks

    3. claiborne

    This. And throw in DLaw, who I have a sneaky suspicion may challenge for DROY.

    DeMarcus Lawrence: I think he surprises in his rookie season and gets more playing time and sacks than people are thinking. A relatively easy scheme to learn and more strength than most initially thought is the basis for this prediction.

    Rolando McClain: I think he sticks on the team and is a contributor in more ways than one. I don't necessarily think he'll win a starting position, but I think he is a team player and adds a physical presence in the middle in certain situations.

    Ken Bishop: I think he works his way into the rotation at the 1-tech and his combination of quickness, leverage and strength allow him to be a relatively big part of the inside rotation.

    With Dlaws 10 and Gardners 6, thats 16. Ware replaced. Good sign. I hope this Gardner pans out. I am starting to like him.

    Selvie was a lost talent that we got lucky to fall into. Teamed with Pierre-Paul in college...Claiborne is a talent. Give him a role that fits his talent. Wilcox is the one S with that "edge" and speed needed for the position with modern TEs and receiving backs in play at a larger degree. Hope to put Church in the box and away from deep resp.

    You love what Marinelli has done with Bruce Carter? Hahaha. He had his worst season as a pro last year. Terrible and you love it?

    That would be huge if so.

    The only thing is, if McClain is a pleasant surprise then he has to start. There's nobody else there.

    I think Rolando McClain is going to make the Cowboys have a tough decision to make on Sean Lee in the future, assuming McClain wins the MLB job this year.

    I know what you're saying, but I could see Durant starting with McClain working in in some situations. However, you're probably correct about that.

    Here's hoping you are.

    Claiborne - A lot of physical talent and has the experience now

    Wilcox - same

    Escobar - finally ready to contribute

    Devin Street - Rookie Surprise

    James Hanna - Underused as a receiver last year, Linehan was take advantage of the matchups.

    Frederick - with maybe even better guard play around him and a full season under his belt he will be a pro bowler. Smart and tough as nails.

    T. Williams - showed flashes and big play ability as a rookie at a position that is tough to transition into coming from college. With the attention that Dez gets T-Will is going to take off.

    Matt Johnson - has nowhere else to go but up. Made of glass but has some skills. Would love to see him stay healthy to see what the kid can do.

    That's the best you can do? Seriously dude. Naomi Watts, Katherine Zeta Jones, and Zhang ZiYi and I'll break down and volunteer my time. A smorgasbord of fine ladies in desperate need of my attn. What can I say? I'm just an altruistic guy. :D
