    Well if you are against players that take plays off then you'll have to scratch Clowney off your list. He takes plays off as well.

    Here's another picture he just posted on twitter of him and he's wearing a Cowboys shirt.

    I'm a huge Jernigan fan and I'd love to take him at 16 and it would be even better if they got him in a trade down but I doubt he falls too far. I'd prefer Barr and Donald though.

    With all due respect, you don't know what you are talking about

    If Donald is off the board and there isn't a good passrusher at DE to fill in, I would consider taking Jerigan. His not as good as Donald but I think his the 2nd best tackle in the draft. I think he'll end up being a good player for us especially with Marinelli coaching. Like someone said he can play both the 1 tech and 3 tech and has some passrushing skills. He's certainly not like Floyd for sure.

    Teams don't care. Most understand that these kids have favorite teams, but that the money and loyalty to the team that chooses them - not to mention professionalism - will turn them pretty quickly.

    I think its a long shot he ends up here, but I'll say it would be refreshing to get a guy who really took some pride in the star. I think Dez was the last pick I got that sense from right away

    This may be unfair, because I think he has talent, BUT I was totally turned off in the National Championship game when he was SUCKING wind the whole drive in a crucial moment instead of SUCKING it up.

    Mel said last night Jernigan is falling fast to the end of the first - he also said Bridgewater could slip into the 2nd.

    A lot of you are a lot smarter than me about the draft but It's pretty amazing what happens to the stock of players in just a few weeks.

    If the team thinks he can play a Booger McFarland role, they will draft him. It has nothing to do with an arbitrarily numbered space on the football field. It's about impact and playing time, i.e., can he be a three-down DT in this defense? I don't know the answer to that, but I'm sure the team does by now.

    as opposed to you being it the know it all!! don't get offended.

    reports about him is that he doesn't have a consistent motor and loses concentration and his technique and thus gets pushed out of plays and becomes a none-factor. compare him to Donald, where reports are he is got a non stop motor.

    first round picks need to be solid. players who can go 60 plays if need be. go as hard as possible every play and not fall sleep.

    are you a Seminole by any chance? why the favoritism?

    Bridgewater could be selected in the first, but after his pro day and rumblings of individual workouts, I think he'll do a Geno Smith slide.

    I prefer Donald, but I'd be fine with Jernigan, too.

    Hypothetical case here, but say Barr is the pick at 16, Jerrigan is dropping, would you trade away the 3rd round pick to move up and take him?

    I'd use my 2nd on a good OG, then use the 3rd rounder of Sutton or Easley (hopefully Easley). Draft is insanely deep this year, and those picks are valuable. I'd rather get two or three good players than one stud.

    Exactly. He is advertising himself. His agent probably told him a range of picks where he could fall and he liked Dallas the best.

    It's actually the other way around. Jernigan gives great effort and consistency, he plays til the whistle, while Donald has a habit of giving up on plays too early if he thinks he's out of it. Donald does a lot of walking around.

    And this is all well documented.

    I agree. Dez us the only player on the team that has the respect for the star and allows it to show. Dez could fit in with the team's of the 90s. I think it us a rare trait with today's players.
