    I hear you, don't watch much college ball myself.
    I tend to go by this http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/prospectrankings/2014/DT
    and then try to get feedback from fans..

    Jones sounds like a guy with potential we can develop into a beast with Pro conditioning...

    I really want to see what Stephon Tuitt does at the combine. Seems most experts think he will have to be a 34 DE or 43 tackle.

    DT targets in round 2 IMHO:
    Jernigan, Hageman(may not be on Cowboys board but fits value/talent-wise here), Quarles.

    DT targets in round 3 IMHO:
    George Uko(great system fit, would prefer to draft lower), Easley(medical issues but great player), Sutton(may go higher if teams thinks they can slim him down to Jr year size of about 285.)

    Tuitt is a SDE here imho. Not a bad player.
    Nix is a starting 1T here but that's paying a lot for a starting 1T that will probably get 2 sacks a year at pick 16.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. I think the trend is going towards having at least one big body in the middle. Having said that I don't think he makes it to us. I would like to see us take Jernigan tho, if he falls that far. If neither is there for our pick that trade back and pick up a big body towards the end of rnd one and someones 2 to give us an extra pick for defense. In Marinelli I trust.

    Quick Twitch, those kind hold blocks?


    Hageman was very productive fighting double teams.

    Dallas needs some size in the middle.

    Will Sutton if he can drop the lbs and regain the 2012. Disruptive up the field player, the kind of DL that would fit our scheme.

    Daquan Jones is another good one to man the 1 technique. Powerful two gap player with some pass rush ability.

    I would love to see a guy who can play a 1 and a 3 doing them both well. I think they want a quick twitch 3 who can play mostly a shoot one gap technique and hold up reasonably well as a one gap shoot and hold.

    It is interesting to say Sutton needs to get back to 285, Jernigan plays at 292 with a gut but Donald at 288 is too small.
