    It seems like every year we see a player drafted by the Cowboys at a position that nobody expected.

    Who do you think could be a surprise selection this year?

    With the way the Patriots are using Gronk and Hernandez, I could see the Cowboys drafting another TE called in round 2-3.

    Dwayne Allen of Clemson, Coby Fleener of Stanford, and Orson Charles are all talented TE's that could be future stars at the position. With Witten getting older and Bennett seemingly on the way out, I wouldn't be surprised to see one of their names called early in the draft.

    A TE would not surprise me, I actually expect it.

    I still say you will see a RB selected at some point.

    Couldn't tell you the name, but I wouldn't be shocked at all if we draft an OT somewhere in rounds 1-4.

    Eh the 2-TE set isn't all that. Gimme the 3-WR set. Look at what the Saints do with Colston, Moore, and Meachem (or Henderson), the Packers with Jennings, Nelson, and Driver, and now the Giants with Nicks, Manningham, and Cruz. We've got the talent in the passing game, we just need to perfect it with the WRs we have now.

    Surprise pick would be ILB in the first 3 rounds.

    yeah we need the wr's to learn the playbook and learn to run a good route. I think part of the problem is calling 2 plays in the huddle. Watching the patriots get in and out the huddle was a thing of beauty(yeah i know they lost but they got in and out the huddle quick). I think we should go with tony having a arm band and just calling out or signaling out a number that tony can just read off his arm. Heck the great tom brady was doing it yesterday, y can't tony. We need to stop trying to turn tony into peyton manning and try to make the game alittle more easier for him and the rest of the team. It seems like guys are thinking too much instead of playing.

    Yup, that's what I'd say as well. I think it'll either be a RB or TE earlier than most would expect.

    I think QB will be a surprise pick. I don't know which player, Foles seems to fit the profile. But we've talked about him alot already. So I'll go with Cousins.

    I fully expect us to draft a TE and a RB, so those wouldn't surprise me all that much.

    I would have a real issue with drafting a TE in round 2 or 3. We have way too many glaring holes to address a back-up TE position this year. The draft needs to be like this.

    Round 1: CB/OL
    Round 2: CB/OL
    Round 3: D-line/MLB
    round 4: D-line/OLB
    Round 5: BPA
    Round 6: BPA

    Bennett was a great back-up - he was used primarily as a blocker and excelled there. He could of been a better receiver, but when your sitting behind Jason Witten you are not going to get the opportunities to shine.

    David DeCastro @ 14

    despite signing a high profile OG in FA (nicks/grubbs/ellis)

    i think this would a 'surprise' to many but would be the right hting to do

    if DeCastro is on the board, the only way i dont pick him is if Melvin Ingram is there and we dont re-sign Spencer

    if we draft QB, TE, or RB in first 3 rounds that will be major FAIL in my book

    If we signed Nicks and drafted DeCastro, I'd be more excited than I was when we drafted Dez, and I was standing on my couch when that happened.
