    I'll play along

    Round 1 - Terrence Williams - He had a very good rookie year and now slides into the #2 receiver role - given the extra exposure and the extra attention likely given Dez/Witten, he could double his rookie campaign output.

    Round 2 - Lance Dunbar - I said shortly after we acquired Scott Linehan, he will have a significant role much like Reggie Bush was used last year, in terms of getting him the ball in space and letting him create. Obviously, he likely won't duplicate Bush's production, being that Demarco will be the starter and the Cowboys have alot of other weapons to feature - but I still say Dunbar will surprise some.

    Round 3 - Rolando McClain - I'm not sure if it would be that much of surprise considering many have already tabbed him as the most "talented" player in the Lb group, but still based on what I'm reading he, at least, seem's to have his head on straight...for now.

    Improvement in those 3 players would be huge for the Cowboys. I'm not sure I share your confidence though.

    If McClain makes the team (i.e. keeps it together mentally) he will be the starting MLB in the base defense. They only played base 39% of the time last season.

    I've reviewed most of his games from 2012 on the All-22. He's a far superior player to Durant.

    I do wonder who will be the 2 LBs in the Nickel. My guess is Holloman and Carter.

    Yep.

    And we're already reading/hearing good things about all 3.

    That's not a excuse though. We may have not drafted him to be a blocking tight end but he still should've showed some progression there. He didn't so he couldn't get on the field.

    Very few young receiving TEs can block. Look at every scouting report on top TE prospects - all of them are poor blockers.

    We claimed we were going to run a Pats like O. One TE is generally split wide and has blocking assignments similar to a WR (I.e. very little). We rarely used that alignment. His blocking would have been irrelevant

    I don't know why we didn't use him more. Esp around the GL.
