Cox or Konz/Zeitler?
Please just stay put and pick BPA. Nothing about recent history suggests the Cowboys can put those picks to good use.
im sorry but i cant believe Cleveland would offer all that without a player exchange ie. Felix or something. or a swap of one of our picks,
Couldnt do it fast enough.
IF this is true...and it's a big IF...it would only be on the table IF the player that Cleveland wanted was still available at #14. So no way to do it ahead of time other than verbally.
That said, I've been hearing the love for Floyd coming out of Cleveland for a couple of weeks now, and that they have him rated higher than Blackmon. As such, I've projected them as potential trade down partners IF he's still available.
I hadn't heard anything about a trade with Dallas in particular, though, so could be that Cleveland is just sniffing out possible trade partners for when the clock is actually ticking. That's a whole lot to offer, though. From a trade value chart perspective, the #22 and #37 alone would be significantly more than the point difference. Throwing in two more picks as well just seems unlikely.
I think the 'Boys would be hard-pressed not to take that deal, IF it were available.
No way they're going to take interior O-linemen in both the first and second rounds. Just not happenin'.
One or the other, sure. But not both.
Would you take Mercilus and Zeitler over Cox?
I would. I know some may not, but I'd have no problem with it.
Ain't that the sad truth!
ZERO chance that Holmgren is that big of a fool.
For the sake of getting myself too pumped up for this, I want to see what kind of draft we could potentially have if this trade went through. Using SDogo's Board and selecting players only at, or below their rankings, I came up with a Mock Draft that looks like this:
#22 - Whitney Mercilus
#37 - Peter Konz
#45 - Harrison Smith
#81 - Josh Chapman
#113 - Josh Norman
#118 - LaDarius Green
I like it.
That's tough... You patch the up the O-line nicely with the latter, but players like Cox are so rare that I'd stick with him.
I think we can get a starting caliber G and/or C in the middle rounds.. I don't see another Cox.
Plus, passing on Cox would almost certainly mean he'd be an Eagle at 15
No chance the Browns give up that much to move up just 8 spots in the middle of the first round.
No...but make it McClellan and Zeitler and I may be on board...although I'm not as in love with Zeitler as some folks. I'd be more inclined to take the best DE still available at #37 and then take best G/C available at #45 unless a high caliber CB or Harrison Smith were available.
A man can dream...
Lets make that trade. Yesterday.
22: Coby Fleener
37: Chandler Jones
45: Amini Silatolu
81: Brandon Boykin
I really would like to have a pass rush that completely bails out the rest of the defense like the Giants, though.
And it would be even better since our DBs are actually looking to be pretty good, unlike in NY.
Lol....I know. I'm just trying to talk you off the ledge beforehand. :laugh1:
How about Mercilus at 22, Zeitler 37 Orson Charles 45. The rest of your mock I'm perfect with.
Man, if the Cowboys were to trade down to #22 and then take Coby Fleener, we'd be able to hear Bill Jones' head swell all over the country. That's what he mentioned as his dream mock on Talkin' Cowboys this week.
I'm gonna call bogus on that trade rumor........that or sheer idiocy in Cleveland.
Looking at the chart of charts.
They'd essentially be giving up an excess amount equal to Dallas 2nd round pick in order to move up 8 spots.
