    16 Dallas Cowboys: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
    Many mocked Prince Amukamara to the Cowboys this past April for good reason. Mike Jenkins was coming off an awful year, while Terence Newman has nothing left in the tank. Cornerback help is desperately needed, and Dre Kirkpatrick is one of the top players available.

    Newman's still got some in the tank. He might not be worth his contract anymore, but he's still got some in the tank. If we pick 16th I'd trade back and choose Konz.

    he plays way to stiff


    Wisconsin junior center Peter Konz is likely to stay in school if he faces a lengthy rehab for an ankle injury

    give me an OSLBer

    or a different CB

    OLB? 1st round draft picks are expected to greatly contribute to the team that year. I dont see an OLB picked in this upcoming draft that will be more than a rotational player for next year (Unless we let Spencer go via FA). Sign me up for G/C/CB/DL

    I think Spencer's foot is half way out the door right now

    Brandon Jenkins*, OLB , Florida State
    Chase Thomas, OLB, Stanford
    Ronnell Lewis*, OLB, Oklahoma

    I think any of these guys could start tom

    I think Ronnell Lewis and Bruce Carter are similiar players.

    Brandon Jenkins reminds me a bit of Kamerion Wimbley, but I'm not sure if he's has the agility to be a 34 OLB. Want to see how he moves at the combine in drills.

    I'd like to go offensive line in the 1st round and maybe take a look at a guy like Bruce Irvin at some point later, or some of the players you mentioned.

    yea true about Jenkins

    you know I don't think Upshaw has the speed to be a OLB either

    I still have not seen Irvin

    you know there just not that many Wares out there - we need something besides Spencer

    heres a good right up

    As a 34 OLB prospect, I'm not overly enamored with Courtney Upshaw. He has good size for the position but I don't see anything in his game that shows the requisite quickness or agility to be an OLB. He's pretty good in straight lines but is a bit of a plodder moving laterally and in pursuit in traffic.

    I don't think we'll be drafting that high at #16 but I do like Kirkpatrick. He's got a great frame with unusual agility/hips for a player his size, and he also is active in run support. I think he's a solid late 1st rounder/2nd round pick.

    I predict we keep Spencer and take a DE in the first round, if we do not take a OL.

    I think RR wants to replace Spencer - maybe not with with the first round


    Anthony Spencer opened the 2011 season hot, but cooled off prior to the Seattle game. He'll be a free agent in March.
    I doubt Dallas will want to pay him the money he's looking for, so Jerry Jones may spend an early selection on a replacement.


    which DE Upshaw - Jenkins - Winn

    I think that be a wasted pick in my book - you can find DE in later rounds

    look at Darius from Ala an Mt Cody have you heard anything about these guys dominanting

    I think it will be a C, CB, OLB

    This guy is extremely overrated and not very smart. I want nothing to do with him.

    I don't want a CB in the first.

    From where I'm standing, the interior offensive line is clearly the biggest weakness on this team.

    Even if Newman is gone. You've still got Jenkins and Scandrick. A third cornerback doesn't make any sense when compared to the needs at G and C.

    People need to warm up to the idea of us taking an interior OL or DE in the first round. Maybe even a potential stud ILB with the idea of moving Bruce Carter to OLB.

    We might not take a DB at all in the draft coming up. Yes, I'm serious.

    I think a lot of people are warm to that . I'd take a JPP or aldon smith No problem. Even if Spencer is back. The giants have made be a believer in that philosophy. Melvin Ingram is a great fit

    Later on I really like Cordy Glenn At guard. Brewster is very good too.

    Move Bruce Carter to OLB?

    I suggested that possibility two months ago and I was an idiot.

    More cornerback nonsense for the Cowboys.

    Yes. I'm down for two 1st round salaries and Scandrick's new deal on the roster. Hey, keep Newman and his bloated contract too.

    If we learned anything from the Eagles this year it's adding quality cornerbacks completely revamps your defense.

    You're not an idiot. I'd say it's feasible, especially with his athleticism and speed.
