    Assuming we get DE and CB/FS help in free agency, and given our less-than-stellar history of first round draft choices, who thinks we should just trade out of round one and stockpile 2nd and 3rd round picks in order to infuse some youthful talent onto our roster?

    We need Stars. We have a better chance to get two Stars with those 2 1st's rather than multiple 2nd and 3rd's.

    I would hope we use the 11th pick to select a player, if Dallas wants to trade a pick then do it with the 20th pick.

    Braylon Edwards would be a nice addition for Hasselbeck

    I'm all for adding stars in the first round, JJ and BP just need to make the right selections (which worries me.)

    I agree, but I have not given up on Drew....If indeed BP is not confident Drew can do it, then by all means I'll take Hasselbeck in a heartbeat. He is perfect for this team....

    And YES...Edwards along with Keys and Glenn would be a dream for him...not to mention Witten.

    Having 2 picks in the first round scares me with this crew at the helm. I hate having this feeling of inpending doom in my gut thinking how they are going to screw this up. I am praying that we pick up some stud free agents to offset a possible disgusting draft.They just scare me

    IMO we don't get a DE and CB in free agency. They are two of the highest dollar spots you can acquire in free agency. Plus the draft is fairly deep at both of those positions.

    I think it is much more likely we get a FS, DT & OG in free agency and address CB, DE and LB in the draft.

    I wouldn't mind trading for some more picks with our first rounders. Think of all the positions we need upgraded outside of DE/FS/CB. DT, LB, WR, there's lots of things we need.

    You make a good point...however in regards to LB...I think a few nice options are there...Bell and Hartwell to name two. They are proven and the price should be doable with any of them.

    As for CB and are right on.

    It COMPLETELY rests on the fact as to what - if anything - is offered for our picks. I've said it before - you can't just trade down or up for the sake of doing it - it all depends on the deal.

    I'm totally open to whatever best deal comes along - if none - stay put.

    To blanketly say trade out of 11th or 20th etc is ri-damn-diculous.

    I agree and the last thing I want to see is the Cowboys seeking a trade, let the others come to us and make an offer.

    Just as a hypothetical, let's say the boys have their eye on Pollack and Corey Webster.

    They feel Webster can be as good as Rolle/ Jackson and Pollack they feel can be as good as any of the others at the DE position.

    I think in this type of scenario they might do the same thing they did with Julius.

    Both Pollack & Webster can be had lower then 11 & 20. So why not trade down and get some extra picks.

    THis hypothetical only works if you feel by trading down you can still get the player you want or someone just as good.

    But your talent evaluation should drive your decision not just for the sake of acquiring picks.

    I think we will be trading several players, for second day picks. Morgan, Coakley, Gurode, Wiley, Singleton and perhaps even Allen or Glover could be moved.

    We could be looking at one of these players and a 5th or 6th to get our 3rd back, as well.

    It is possible that we do trade down with the 20th pick or even repeat what we did last year by trading out of the first for a future first.

    I think we will be pretty active, I could even see us, depending on adding picks for players, moving up a few spots from #11 for a player like Johnson or Williams.

    I just listen to Keyshawn talk last night and Cowboys just might draft Mike Williams with one of the first rounds...

    Because Parcells Drafted Keyshawn from USC- Mike Williams From USC
    sd+ Both Receivers are tall and could catch real well...

    Michael Irvin deals with Mike Williams and said he was the best Wide Receiver in the draft- Michael Irvin still talks to Jerry Jones...

    Jerry Jones don't want to make another mistake by passing up the next Randy Moss + Michael Irvin= Mike Williams

    When I saw the title of this thread, I immediately envisioned Peyton Manning outside of the Cowboys war room on draft day, chanting.....

    Dallas will have to move up then because the Skins will be all over Williams.

    yeah I see what you mean, Terrance Newman, Roy Williams and Greg Ellis were just horrible draft picks...why didnt we just trade out of the 1st rd so we could draft better guys like Dwayne Goodrich, Solomon Page, Sherman Williams and Shane Hannah...

    I think Dallas should stay put with those 2 picks and get the best available CB & DE. Not sure why everyone is thinking WR is such a need position for us. If we draft Edwards or Williams will either of those 2 beat out Glenn or Keyshawn? I seriously doubt it. So why go after a guy who is going to play in limited packages when we could have a guy who is out there for every defensive snap?

    Now if Dallas feels they can get the DE & CB they really want lower than they are set to draft then I see no problem with trading down and picking up a few extra picks. I just don't want to see the Cowboys move down and miss out of the guy they really want. Remember in last year's draft they really wanted Kevin Jones and BP even tried to move back up into the 1st round to get him before Detroit ended up taking him. Not to say that JJ won't be a great back, but he wasn't BP's first choice.

    WR is needed for a variety of reason:
    1. Glenn hasn't really shown a propensity for staying healthy.
    2. Glenn and Johnson aren't spring chickens.
    3. WR is a position that typically take a year or two to develop.
    4. The offense lacks playmakers.

    Granted, you can make a great case for why the defense could use both picks. I guess that is why Dallas is drafting 11. They have holes.

    I am inclined to think that Dallas deals back with at least one pick, more than likely 20. I would not be at all surprised to see another deal like last draft where they pick up a first rounder for next year.

    Give yourself as many options as possible in FA and try to draft the BPA irregardless of position in the draft.
