    Hearing right now Dontari Poe/DT/Memphis is the favorite in the Dallas Cowboys war room..more: http://www.draftinsider.net/

    On the Monday of the combine, when we reported the Dallas Cowboys were the favorites to sign free agent cornerback Brandon Carr, we also posted the team was looking heavily at offensive lineman Cordy Glenn. Several sources have told us in recent weeks the franchise has shifted its focus to the defensive line and as of today Memphis defensive tackle Dontari Poe is the apple of their eyes.

    According to Tony Pauline, Poe is the "apple of their eye" for Dallas.

    I know a lot of people on this site are down on Poe, but I would love to see him in a Cowboys uniform.

    I know the draft isnt an exact science but everything I've read about this guy has "bust" written all over it. I just keep reading negatives.

    I would love to have him here too. Too many have their predictions or pet cats, but Poe is a more athletic version of Sapp in my opinion.

    Dontari Poe - DL - Player
    SI.com draft analyst Tony Pauline reports that Memphis NT Dontari Poe is the "apple of (the Cowboys') eyes" at the No. 14 overall pick.
    It's worth noting Pauline was all over the Cowboys' interest in CB Brandon Carr during Combine week. Pauline reports that Dallas looked "heavily" at Georgia G/T Cordy Glenn in Indianapolis, but has now "shifted its focus" to the defensive line, targeting Poe. In Dallas, the developmental Poe could be brought along slowly as a run-stuffing nose behind Pro Bowl starter Jay Ratliff.

    Poe and Rat on the inside would be nasty.

    And yet Tony Mandorich back in the day was a can't miss. I'll trust our scouts over the fans.

    Can't say Poe would be my choice. I will say he would be a very big man in the center of the defense at 6'4" 346.
