    So, I have heard the name from a few of you; some ranting and raving about him. I for some reason overlooked him the first time I watched his games, but checked him out again after his combine success. Unbelievable!!

    What would you use to get him?

    I have a laundrylist of players I'd like in the 1st round, but for the life of me, can't think of one that can turn around this subpar team beginning week 1 like he would. OL, DL, RB and I'm sure DB will all show us depth from the combine. I say take the mind blowing talent with 18.

    It won't happen, but I wouldn't jump off the ledge if it did (probably not anyway).

    The guy really is a game changer, but Dallas likes tall WR's.

    I want Tavon Austin so bad in a Cowboys uniform. We just have so many needs in the trenches, not sure we can afford that luxury.

    Tavon Austin is going to be a stud. His speed and playmaking ability are crazy. He can have a Percy Harvin type of impact(minus the migranes). He is so versatile, and can line up all over the field.

    Trying to imagine him on this offense with Dez, Miles, Witten, Demarco, Dwayne Harris, Hanna.

    Talk about match up nightmare. If only we had 5 guys who could block for Romo

    If we get the trenches fixed, then we can afford to make these type of picks.. Lets just focus on what will really turn this team into a great team for years to come.

    Won't happen, although you never know with Jerry.

    I really don't want him to be a 9er though.

    There's a spark of something special there, but there's depth at various points in the draft for receiver this year. Is he worth it at 18? Maybe, but when you consider the late round 1 to 4th round talents, I can find 5 or 6 guys I really like at wideout that have the potential to be special.

    Not sure I want to use that bullet at 18. Is he really more of a talent than Jarvis Jones, if he falls there? More of a talent than a Mingo if he falls? I just don't know.

    But I like that other fans are considering alternatives to DL/OL as legitimate approaches to the draft.
