    The running game must be improved. On DL, I think Marinelli can make players out of mid to late round picks and some lower level free agents.

    I should probably put in a RB. I would also consider FB/TE Trey Millard but he has a season ending injury that will probably make him a UDFA.

    1st: OG Cyril Richardson 6-5, 340 or David Yankey 6-5, 314

    The Cowboys need power on the OL.

    2nd: OT La'el Collins 6-5, 315
    More power for the OL.

    3rd: DT DaQuan Jones 6-3, 320ish
    Might not appear to be an ideal fit in Kiffin's scheme, but might be
    playing too heavy in college. Quickness is decent now for a 1-tech but
    could improve by keeping weight down.

    4th: DE Randy Gregory 6-5, 255
    If he enters the draft. I think he is a redshirt SO.

    5th: OT Seantrel Henderson 6-7, 345
    I'm predicting him to fall due to consistent character related issues. In reality, he
    probably won't be on the Cowboys board due to not being an RKG; although, his issues seem to be
    immaturity and background but not legal or drug related.

    6th: OG Spencer Long (injured) 6-4, 315
    Value here due to injury.

    Other:
    DT Dominique Easley (injured)
    If he falls to the later part of the draft, he's worth a pick at some point.

    DT Khyri Thornton
    A project with physical ability that needs a lot of coaching.

    I have seen Gregory going top 75 but Nebraska players who have put on 65 pounds since HS make me laery.

    I see OG Cyril Richardson 6-5, 340 eating his way out football kinda like Leonard Davis in 09 he was at 375

    an am afraid Gabe Jackson will do the same

    He does not look fat to me. He has tree trunk legs and a large frame.

    Leonard "Bigg" Davis was good at OG for a couple of years. He got fat because there was Zero discipline and accountability under Wade Phillips.

    At 6-2, 340 I would be much more concerned with Gabe Jackson.

    No way the Cowboys go all O and D line.. My guess would be they take 2 total lineman possibly 3 if they go DL, OG, OT or OL, DT, DE.. I really don't see them going beyond that.. I could still see them taking a WR in the first 3 rounds especially with Miles Austin most likely on the way out also A CB or Safety in the top 3 rounds wouldn't surprise me at all.. Nor would a RB. Like Randy Gregory a lot btw lots of upside.

    If the best safety is still sitting there when Cowboys are on the clock...get that guy! If not, draft DL or OL. I don't care about the names.

    I'm all for upgrading the trenches and everything, but this is a little unrealistic. What about S, LB, RB?

    I did say I should include a RB.

    If a Safety is not in the top 2 or 3 rounds, then I'm not sure they need another mid to later round Safety. They've got some backup Safeties with potential but zero interior backup OL with potential. They've also got some backup LBs with potential. On DL Hatcher might not return and Ware might never be 100% again.

    Trevor Matich said Richardson was the best OG in the draft today.

    Defensive Line
    Guard
    Saftety
    Runningback

    Needs to be our first 4 draft picks

    After that
    DL
    LB
    DL

    I believe we can probably pick up a solid WR in free agency who has proven themselves elsewhere.

    I watch a lot of college football (well, at least a lot according to my wife) every week and I haven't heard of any of these people. Can't say that I can recall watching any of them play. Probably did see them play but I couldn't even tell you what university they play at.

    So, no thanks. I'd rather take my chances with whatever Jerry picks instead.:)

    Cyril Richardson - G - Bears
    Despite tabbing Baylor senior G Cyril Richardson (along with RB Lache Seastrunk) one of "the top two prospects on the field for the Bears," NFL.com's Albert Breer calls Richardson "a bit of a polarizing player."

    "He doesn't have a ton to prove; he kind of is what he is," one AFC area scout said of Richardson. "He just needs to play consistent football against a highly ranked team, and I'd like to see consistency when he's asked to play in space." One AFC college scouting director said the 6-5, 340-pound mauler was "so overrated" due to poor athleticism. Richardson has a powerful base in pass protection and is a road-grader in the running game. He'll be taken in the first two days of the draft.

    He played LT in the past. The least athletic LTs in major college football are going have at least average athleticism as a Guard.

    Way too much invested in the oline. Do agree a guard in one of the first few rounds, but not much beyond that.

    Much greater need for dlineman and also have to address the running back position as well as possibly lb and wr.

    Do like the third/fourth rounders.

    Completely agree.

    DE in the 1st with a guard in the 2nd would be how I would start the draft. After that, I am looking for RB, LB, OT, CB, or safety not necessarily in that order.

    Of course, all of this depends on the state of the Cowboys' DL once the draft rolls around. If you're looking at a starting lineup of Selvie, Crawford, Hayden, and Ware by then, you might be forced to double down on the line with your first two picks and hope a guard falls in the third.
