    The Cowboys reportedly "like" Mississippi State DT Fletcher Cox, but believe he will be off the board before the 14th pick in the draft.


    Cox appears to be a notch above Dontari Poe and Michael Brockers, two defensive tackles the Cowboys also "like" even if they haven't visited. Although Alabama OLB/DE Courtney Upshaw did visit Dallas recently, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram hears that he won't be a consideration at No. 14 overall.

    Why do I feel like I'm back in high school? They "like" him, but do they "like like" him?

    Though you can never tell what kind of smoke is blowing in the wind, reports of Dallas liking some NTs is a positive sign into the right direction for this team.


    A True 3/4 NT makes the biggest difference in the Cowboys right now.

    Cox is 6-4, 295 lbs. He'd be a defensive end in a 3-4 scheme, not a "true" nose tackle.

    Exactly, he would play DE in our scheme.



    Moot point however, because Cox is not going to make it to pick 14.

    If Dallas wants Fletcher Cox, they'd better be ready to trade up to get him.

    I think this is it guys, I will continue to believe the Barron and Poe hype were smokescreens, I think it is a weak effort to get Cox. If he is available I will expect 100% that the pick will be Cox, I don't know how to feel about it, he isn't the conventional 3-4 DE so it is a risky bet.

    i have it from a very reliable source that dallas hit every like button to each draftees facebook page. true story. so im thinking they are taking everyone, or at least a player in each round they choose. real reliable source. also told me dallas will be at the draft. now who has that kind of info i ask?

    What's the deal with Molk?

    I thought he won the rimington award for best center in college but he always seems to show up as a late round candidate. Is it a size or strength issue?
