    As in College, Murray is very injury prone and is lost for big chunks of each season. This is not acceptable and the team must consider drafting a #1 back. Who would be your choice?

    3rd or 4th round-- Stefan Taylor--a 3 down back

    We could just trade Herschel Walker to the Vikings for a boat-load of picks. They might even throw in Percy Harvin and Adrian Peterson this time. :)

    Some mid-round guys that I've seen play and appear to have talent:

    Kenjon Barner
    Silas Redd
    Dennis Johnson
    Christine Michael
    Knile Davis

    Cierre Wood, Dennis Johnson, or Christine Michael in the 5th or 6th.

    Johnathan Franklin is a good one, and Rex Burkhead is underrated. 2 guys that look like 3 down players.

    I like Lacy.

    But with Murray as our starter, we need a speed guy. The offense desperately needs speed and versatility

    I'll have to do some research.

    Johnathan Franklin is a Frank Gore clone. Would love to have him as a Cowboy!

    Dri Archer. Look him up.

    He's terribly undersized, but still productive. He probably wouldn't get many touches for a while, but he'd greatly improve our return game. He can catch passes out of the back field too and maybe play some at the slot.

    He wouldn't fill the typical RB role, but still could help us a lot with his speed. He may need a year to bulk up though....

    I see him as a 5th or 6th rounder due to his lack of size.

    I agree...we need another big back. Someone who can split carries on an almost even level with Murray. I think we can find another guy like that in the 3rd or 4th round. Montee Ball is another name to throw out.

    I agree with this thought. We do need a big back. Maybe Peyton Hillis will be available. Then, we'd have 2 Madden cover boys on the roster. Can't lose with that, right?

    knile Davis is who it will be. In the 3rd round with first round talent until a knee injury, sound familiar.

    Montee Ball. Don't let the "mileage" fool you. He is going to be a star in the NFL, and just might be available early in round 3. If the Cowboys are picking late in round 2 and the OL has already been addressed with the 1st round pick, I would not pass him up.

    Le'Veon Bell Mich State

    Class: Junior 2V Height: 6-2 Weight: 244

    Le'Veon Bell will consider leaving Michigan State for NFL after trying to finish season 'off right'


    Le'Veon Bell smirked, not as if he knew the answer, but the question certainly didn't catch him off guard.

    Bell sits atop the conference with 1,249 rushing yards with a league-high 283 carries through 10 games. He's topped 200 yards twice this season and has done his work behind an offensive line that's been hampered by injuries.
    Listed at 6-foot-2 and 237 pounds, Bell may not possess the breakaway speed of some NFL backs, but he has other intangibles scouts crave: vision, good hands and the ability to pick up blitzes and protect his quarterback

    CBSSports.com currently projects Bell as a fourth-round selection, and the 12th best running back potentially available

    could of got a 4th or so from felix jones. Isn't like he is tearing it up in the backfield. Should have just cut bait with him.

    we need to find a durable strong back that can also get the tough yards like the skins did.

    Ray Graham might be a steal in the 3rd or 4th. I despise Pitt but this kid can flat out play ball.
