    14. Dallas Cowboys: Alabama CB Dre Kirkpatrick
    The Cowboys have to be thrilled with both Kirkpatrick and Stanford OG David DeCastro still on the board. However, I see them opting for the big corner because of the overall priority of the position.

    I like them both and would be happy with Kirkpatrick if this ends up being the case.

    I like Kirkpatrick OK but honestly like the next four picks a little more.

    I'd rather have Jenkins than Kirkpatrick.

    If the draft really plays out like this and Ingram is still there at 27 when the Pats pick I would definitely try to pull off a trade to get him. They have 2 1st round picks and are almost certain to trade 1 of them. I would also try to pull it off while still keeping our 3rd round pick. Possibly our 2nd and 4th this year with an additional 3rd or 4th next year. A draft of Jenkins(I also prefer him to Kirkpatrick), Ingram, and the best available OG/OC in the 3rd would do wonders for this team, especially if we are able to land Nicks/Grubbs/Mathis in FA.

    Bunting is giving Nick Perry major love at pick #12. I just don't see it.

    Yeah but those types of lbs scare me. It's not like he has a great season. More of a one year of production. He is a gamble that early.

    Man, I have such a hard time passing up on a guy like DeCastro.

    Dre or Jenkins might be a better pick for right now, but this guy could be great on the OLine for like 12 years. Corners are so hit or miss...this guy is a sure thing. I really have a hard time passing up on him.

    The overall priority of the position?

    Is this guy trying to tell me CB is a more important position than OG?

    Perhaps he's saying the difference in quality/talent between Kirkpatrick and say any CB potentially available in the 2nd round is more dramatic than the differences in talent between DeCastro and an OG in the 2nd round. Therefore, he puts the value and pick at CB.

    Just looking at how that mock plays out makes me strongly believe the best move is to trade down because I don't see a huge difference from #12 to #30 at this point.

    I like Hightower and Ingram better than Kirkpatrick.

    I would have a problem trading down with DeCastro still on the board .

    He's had a good career at Southern Cal.

    After redshirting in 2008, he was used as a back-up defensive end in 2009 as a redshirt freshman and played in all 13 games, finishing with 24 tackles, 9.0 tackles for loss and a team-best 8.0 sacks, earning Freshman All-American honors. Perry became the full-time starter at defensive end in 2010 as a sophomore (9 starts), recording 25 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, 4.0 sacks, 3 pass break ups, 2 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery.

    Perry led the Pac-12 with 9.5 sacks this season. In three seasons, he's amassed 21 sacks. He's had more than one year's worth of production.

    I don't understand the NFP website. I see the "3.0" Mock Draft by following the link provided. But at the main page of the draft website(http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/scouting_department.html), it says the Most Recent Mock is as follows:

    NFP Inside Content. All Season.

    1 IND Andrew Luck QB Stanford
    2 WAS Robert Griffin III QB Baylor
    3 MIN Matt Kalil OT Southern California
    4 CLE Justin Blackmon WR Oklahoma State
    5 TB Morris Claiborne CB Louisiana State
    6 STL Michael Brockers DT Louisiana State
    7 JAX Dre Kirkpatrick CB Alabama
    8 CAR Devon Still DT Penn State
    9 MIA Riley Reiff OT Iowa
    10 BUF Jonathan Martin OT Stanford
    11 KC David DeCastro OG Stanford -
    12 SEA Quinton Coples DE North Carolina
    13 ARI Nick Perry OLB Southern California +
    14 DAL Peter Konz C Wisconsin

    Is there a 4.0 Mock somewhere? Or is the above one a version prior to the 3.0 Mock?

    As do I, but that depends on Spencer. Personally, Decastro is the safest and smartest pick. You won't have to worry about off field issues and he fills a hole that needs filling. Closest thing to a sure bet there is.
