    I don't typically like to predict trades. Often they are unrealistic and to be honest, as so many like to say, "This is not Madden" but truth is I'm struggling to find some thing to do and there is a lull in the draft process at the moment so taking into account some of the rumors and as much reality as I can I decided to let the Madden in me come out.

    Round 1, Pick #22: Roy Williams, WR, Detroit Lions
    With the 2 corners the Cowboys covet and McFadden off the board Jerry is pleased when his work with the Lions pays off and the two teams agree to a trade that will send the young and talented Roy Williams to Dallas in exhange for the Cowboys 22nd pick in Round 1 and a swap of 2nd round picks giving the Cowboys the 15th pick in Round 2, #47 overall. Roy Williams gives Dallas more value then any unknown they can grab at 22 and moves them up in round 2.

    Round 1, Pick #28: Traded to the Chicago Bears
    Jerry could not resist making another splash in the 08' NFL Draft. With both Andre Woodson and Chad Henne still on the board the Bears moved frantically to get back into Round 1 and just like 2 out of the last 4 years Jerry is more then happy to help out a team looking to get back into Round 1 for a QB. For a price that is! The Cowboys pick up the Bears 2nd round pick in 08' #14, #46 overall, the Bears 4th round pick #110 over all and the Bears 2009 1st round pick.

    Round 2, Pick #46: Dominique Rogers-Cromartie, CB, Tenn St
    Missing out on Talib and McKelvin in round 1 Dallas decided to wheel and deal and it looks as if it may have worked out for the best. Dominique was one of the drafts fastest risers and provides an immideate upgrade to the CB and special teams unit.

    Round 2, Pick #47: Chris Johnson, RB, East Carolina
    The trades the Cowboys made in round 1 look better and better. Not only do they pick up Roy Williams but the snag 2 players who could of easily been 1st round picks early in round 2. Johnson will provide the lightning to Barbers thunder and easily make Cowboy fans forget who was in the backfield with Barber last year. The Special Teams return units just got dangerous in the 2nd round.

    Round 3, Pick #92: Shawn Crable, OLB, Michigan
    Running the 3-4 you can never have enough high energy, pocket busting LB's and Crable is scratching the surface of his potential. With Ellis up in the air as he is every year and Jerry knowngly ready to pull the trigger on his 3rd trade of the draft Crable will be a welcome addition to a young defense.

    Round 4, Pick #97: Pick acquired from Miami for OLB Bobby Carpenter
    Round 4, Pick #97: Heath Benedict, OT, Newberry

    Round 4, Pick #110: Justin King, CB, Penn State

    Round 4, Pick #124: Traded to the Cleveland Browns
    In exchange Dallas receives the Browns 6th round pick, #182 and the Browns 3rd round pick in 09'.

    Round 5, Pick #156: Spencer Larsen, ILB, Arizona

    Round 6, Pick #182: Colt Brennan, QB, Hawaii

    Round 6, Pick #188: Traded to the Minnesota Vikings
    In exchange Dallas receives the Vikings 5th round pick in 09'

    Round 7, Pick #220: Korey Robertson, NT, Virginia Tech

    Looking ahead, the Cowboys were able to come out of the 08' draft with the Bears #1 pick in 09' giving them 2 for the second consecutive year. An additional 3rd round pick in 09' giving them 5 picks in the first 3 rounds as well as an additional 5th round pick in 09' leaving the draft to look something like this:

    Round 1
    Round 1
    Round 2
    Round 3
    Round 3
    Round 4
    Round 5
    Round 5
    Round 6
    Round 7

    They also come out of this years draft with a dynamic WR in Roy Williams, a seriously upgraded secondary with Cromartie and King, speed at the RB position with Johnson, upgraded speed at LB and a vastly improved special teams return and coverage unit.

    People get soooo in love with the trade back scenario.

    That worked for us back when we were drafting guys who didn't fit into most other teams' systems - e.g., smaller defenders -- good players who lacked the idea size for most teams fell to us and we looked like geniuses -- of course, in a copycat league that only works for so long.

    Trading back was all about Jimmy Johnson bringing a system to the NFL that others thought wouldn't work then reaping the benefits when he got great players late.

    If Jerrah could pull this off it would seriously remake his image in the NFL.

    Just my opinion - My Draft senerio if far far far more realistic. I don't see Detroit giving up Roy and NO WAY I see the Cowboys giving away Bobby Carpenter for a 4th round pick. NO WAY!!!!. Here is a REAL Mock Draft with a high likelyhood of happening which takes into account relationships and our Owners mentality.

    Anyone who has bothered to pay attention realizes that he is looking for the closest thing to a super star he can find to put our team over the top. He is looking for the next Deion Sanders. Darren McFadden is the closest thing to that in this draft, and he will be a Cowboy.

    People get caught up in the "DRAFT VALUE CHART" - it is a guide. The values are only true as much as a team is WILLING to pay. No many teams want the rights to PAY the top pick, top pick money and the Dolphins are no diffrent in this respect - especially if the pick is not a QB. All that being said - here is the REAL MOCK DRAFT:

    Senerios 1.

    The Miami Dolphins may have already tipped their hand as to which player they are favoring with the No. 1 pick. Bill Parcells and General Manager Jeff Ireland have specified they are looking for a passionate player capable of building a winning atmosphere in Miami. Considering his motor, collegiate success and unique fit in the 3-4 scheme, Southern California's Sedrick Ellis makes the most sense for the Dolphins should they be unable to trade the top pick for more selections.

    If I'm the Dolpins I go for the trade. Fasano ( 54th pick / 06 ), Mquistan ( Parcell's LT replacment project for Flo ), Carpenter ( 18th pick / 06 ), our number 1 ( 22 ), our number 1 ( 28 ), and our number 2 ( 60 ), our 3rd round pick 09, with THEIR number 2 ( 32 ) in exchange.

    This would give the dolphin's 4 sure starters and their Left Tackle of the future and two additional picks.

    1st round. Pick 1 Darren McFadden

    Senerio 2

    If the Dolphins stay pat - Bloggers I would like your feedback on what you think of this straight trade.
    ( JUST THE TRADE VALUE - not what you think about the trade )

    Carpenter, Fasano + Mquistan for the Dolphin's 2nd pick( 32 ) and 5th( 129 )

    This gives us: 22; 28; 32; 60; 84; 117; 129; 149; 181; 214; 250

    We can then trade 22 ( 780 points ); 28 ( 660 points ); 60 ( 300 points ) to the Raiders for number 4. ( 1800 points )

    1st round. Pick 4 - McFadden 6'2 210 4.35
    ( The next Bo Jackson )

    2nd round. Pick 32 - Antoine Cason DB Arizona 6'0 190 4.4
    ( Best Zone guy in the draft with great Man Skills )

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica]84 - Donnie Avery WR Houston 5'11 187 4.3 [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica]( Burner Speed to replace Glenn in 2009 ) [/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica]117 - Robert Felton G Ark 6'4 310 5.3 [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica]( Competition for Kosier )[/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica]128 - Jacob Tamme TE Kty 6'5 240 4.5 [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica]( Fast Fasano Replacement )[/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica]149 - Marcus Howard LB Ga 6'2 245 4.6 [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica]( Good Depth to Replace Carpenter - add this to a cheap Vet Free Agent pickup )[/FONT]


    181 - Kenny Iwebema DE/LB Iowa 6'4 265 4.7
    ( Rodgers out Iwebema In )


    214 - Cory Boyd RB S.Car 6'0 220 4.5
    ( Similar to Barber - Thompson out? or Practice squad until he is proven )


    250 - Kirk Barton OT OSU 6'7 330 5.0
    ( Mquitan replacement - Injury will heal and not needed right away )

    ______________________________________________________________

    The best move for the Dolphins that would make Parcell's against "SEEM" like a GURU would be to trade senerio 1.

    The would gain 5 starters including the Left Tackle of the future. They would still have 2nd round picks plus free agency.

    You call that realistic?

    Sorry.....predicting trades...or trying to...may be fun, but it's never realistic.

    I can buy predicting a trade like a pick for a player. But no way on the number of picks you give.

    Scenario one would make me vomit. We'd mortgage our future for one player. Bad idea.

    I don't see the Raiders doing scenario two.

    Our best bet is to just go with what we have....maybe trade down...We're a super talented team now. I think the number of high draft choices a team keeps corresponds to keeping a team that can contend for years.

    Its not unrealistic in the least. You have but to look at that past of the draft to know its not. and there is no morgage. you just don't want the trade. Nothing about that trade morgages ANYTHING of worth for the Cowboys team.
