    You don't draft Luck and trade Romo. You draft Luck and let him season under Romo for 3-4 years. Like Rodgers.

    Just because you draft a #1 QB doesn't mean he needs to start right away. Smart teams groom there next great QB before their current one is on the way down hill.

    QB is the 1st, 2nd and 3rd most important position on the team. Its so far more important than any other position that you could and should have 2 excellent QBs.

    Take Luck if you can and then get the rest of your team with the rest of the draft.

    Incorrect. If you scout Luck correctly and if he is a prospect along the lines of a Payton Manning then you take him. Not stupid at all. Jimmy Johnson "wasted" a #1 on Steve Walsh and won 2 Superbowls. Building the rest of the team doesn't come down to 1 pick. But getting an franchise QB of the future does.

    That pick will be worth gold if a Rookie Cap is put in place. I would trade it for more 1sts and 2nds to rebuild our lines and worry about getting next year's superdy duper can't miss QB prospect. Its not like Romo is year to year at this point.

    If Luck has any sort of leadership skills you draft him, because Romo is not a leader.

    This team needs leaders.

    Brady = leader
    Manning = leader
    Brees = leader
    Rivers = leader
    Rodgers = leader

    AIKMAN = LEADER

    Romo = stats

    This is not a dumb thread. Drafting Luck does not have anything with "giving up" on Romo. Its about building a LONG term future at QB because without an ELITE QB you don't have a SB chance in this league.

    If we have the number one pick and Luck comes out we will have a dilema especially if there is no rookie contract scale in place.

    He lost credibility with me when he wrote this:

    The Logical Fit

    Marcell Dareus, DE, Alabama
    A couple of years ago the Cowboys allowed Chris Canty to leave as a free agent and it appears as though they will do the same with Marcus Spears next offseason. Meanwhile, both of the top backups at defensive end, Jason Hatcher and Stephen Bowen, are relatively unproven and also due to hit the open market. Dareus could project to either defensive tackle or end in the NFL, depending on the style of defense. However, he actually plays the five-technique in the Crimson Tide’s 3-4 front, which happens to be the same scheme Dallas runs, so this would be a seamless transition.

    The Value / Need Compromise

    Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
    On paper the Cowboys seem to be set at the cornerback position, but appearances can be misleading. In reality Terence Newman is already 32-years-old and there is no telling how much longer he’ll be able to play at a high level. Meanwhile the other starter, former first rounder Mike Jenkins, has taken a big step backwards this season and the top backup, Orlando Scandrick, only has one more year left on his contract. Amukamara is a potential shutdown corner and a legitimate Top 5-10 overall value. If they can’t land Peterson then Amukamara could be a nice consolation prize for their leaky secondary.



    I'm a Nebraska fan. If the Cowboys end up with a top 10 pick and spend it on Amukamara, I will personally fly to Dallas, kidnap Jerry Jones, then drop him in the middle of Taliban country wearing nothing but an american flag and a pair of nike shoes, and the shoes only because I liked him.

    Amukamara is a stiff, literally. He's about as fluid as a block of concrete 3 months after it's been poured. He's fast, he's big, and he's an " ok " tackler, but I wouldn't draft him with a top 20 pick, much less top 10. Michael Booker was a more fluid CB than he was, and that pick didn't turn out too well..

    It would be a crime to turn Marcell Dareus into a 3-4 DE or NG, just like it's a crime what the Dullphins were doing with Jared Odrick before he got injured. They finally figured out towards the end taht they'd be better off going on 4-3 allignments when he's on the field, where Odrick was able to exploit his talents, but then he went down with an injury for good. Dareus could be a dominant DT in a 4-3 defense, where he could attack upfield and even roam from sideline to sideline, like some LBs, like he does in Alabama, and unlike they do in Dallas, contrary to what that guy is saying. Swtiching him to a 3-4 DE would take away his game and waste his talents.

    I didn't even bother getting into the Luck part because it's a waste of time. Cowboys aren't trading Romo and they're not drafting Luck, period.

    You think Jimmy Johnson won 2 Superbowls because of Steve Walsh ? You think that wasting the pick that would have turned out to be Junior Seau on Steve Walsh was a smart move ?


    Wow, that only victory over the Redskins in the '89 season was more important than I thought..:rolleyes:

    It's like witnessing De-evolution. IT's just a matter of time before the smoke signals start to come out.

    I'm a little confucious. He says the line is what drives the car yet he list a Cornerback that we would have to transfer to Safety, and another corner back along with a QB as our possibilities. IS the Olineman crop that bad this year??

    Prince has better technique then Peterson..............

    He lost ALL credibility when he said draft Peterson and move him to safety.

    yes.

    there isn't an OL worth taking in the top 15 let alone the top 5.

    best bet to address the OL is the top of round 2.

    OK, lets just say you draft Luck. Can you imagine his face when he see nummerous defensive linemen running through the line after him. Folks we need atleast 3 new offensive linemen and have to sign Free. Trade down a few spots and add extra draft selections. Our team needs more than just a few tweeks to the roster.
