    Our 1st, 3rd and next year's 1st to move up and draft Hawk? What do you think?

    I think that would be giving up a ton to draft a linebacker in the top 5. Look back and see how many linebackers have been drafted in the top 5 in the last 15 years. Most teams trade away the farm to pick a franchise QB.

    I concede your point, but Hawk looks like the best LB prospect to come along in 20 years. I guess we'll know in 3 or 4 years if he would have been worth it.

    I'll be very, very surprised if we don't trade *down* this year. I think its merely a matter of finding a partner.

    No way we're moving up.

    I think he's a good LB, but let's not get carried away. Poz beat him out for the Butkus award and the Bednarik award, Dumervil beat him out for the Nagurski award, and he also played on a defense littered with draft picks.

    This time last year, people were saying the same thing about Ahmad Brooks. Now, a team can probably draft him in the supplemental for just a 1st or 2nd. Maybe less, who knows. Lavar Arrington is the best LB prospect that has come out in recent years IMO and I don't think he was worth what the Skins spent on him. I would never consider giving up multiple 1st for him, not to mention the 3rd. Draft is way too deep at the LB position. Teams are going to be able to get excellent players in the third this year, at LB IMO.

    The best way to get a top 10 pick is to be a bottom 10 team. Anything outside of that and you get raked over the coals to move up.

    The only way I could see us ending up with Hawk (which I would love to), is if he slides somehow and is sitting there at like pick #11... something like that. That wouldn't require that terribly much to trade up to. If Parcells and company like him enough to trade up 7 spots or so... then I wouldn't be upset about it.

    I could see him sliding a little too. LB's usually tend to slide a little beyond what they're ability says. Although he'd never make it past Cleveland, I doubt. Don't they pick 12th?

    Fool me once... shame on you!
    Fool me twice... shame on me!!

    Two 1st rd draft picks for A.J. Hawk? Good player but no. The Cowboys will not be made the fool again.

    Yeah, you guys are right. Too many good LBs this year to give up anything for one. People made the argument that Carpenter is overrated because he played with Hawk...maybe the reverse is true? Or maybe they were both the beneficiaries of playing with each other?

    Hell no.

    We do not trade multiple players for a single player ... unless you're talking about 5, 6, and 7th rounders.

    But no way do we trade 2 firsts and a third for one player.

    We did that once, bit us in the butt. Set us back for 5 years.

    not in a million years would I do that trade. ive watched an awful lot of Ohio St football because I love the way they play. I personally don't think AJ is much better if any better then Carpenter. I would be completly shocked if we go LB in round 1 that Carpenter isnt the guy we pick. He can do everything and then some. He's mean,fast, big,strong and plays with an attitude you cant teach to linebackers. he can put his hand on the ground and rush from the DE spot, or stand up and blow people up.
