    Round 1 pick 27 - FS - Nate Allen

    6-1 205 lbs

    Play maker ..... smart ..... natural leader.

    (maybe a reach .... but I do not care .... this kid is the leader we need.)


    Round 2 pick 59 - WR - Brandon LaFell

    6-3 211 lbs

    Big Physical..... good hands ..... Quiet humble great blocker.


    Round 3 pick 91 - OT - Ed Wang

    6-5 315 lbs

    Great foot work ..... sustain blocks on passing downs ...... Smart


    Round 4 pick 126 - DT/NT - Mike Neal

    6-4 300 lbs

    In my opinion a Rat clone who is aggressive and strong.


    Round 6 pick 206 - OG - Brandon Carter

    6-6 330 lbs

    Big and mean ..... good foot work ..... kind of a hothead in the mold of Colombo.

    Round 7 pick 240 - WR/RB -Trindon Holliday

    5-7 160 lbs

    Speed ...... pure speed ...... Track Star ......Although listed as a running back, I see this kid as a little WR/KR. Has good hands and is a hard worker ..... he wants it.


    Ok let me hear about it.

    It addresses most of our major needs, the picks seems slotted realistically, and the players seems like the type the Cowboys have been drafting of late.

    Good work, buddy.

    So....you like Wang? :D

    Agree with this...and yes...he loves the wang. :laugh1:

    I remember being in Korea and my LT was working on the computer (back in the late 80's) and it was a wang computer.

    So I go in and he is busy going at it and I said...Oh hey Sir, playing with the old wang again?

    I can't say I really like any of the picks outside of Nate Allen and perhaps Mike Neal, and I've obviously expressed my views on him as a 1st round pick.

    LSU wide receiver Brandon LaFell looking forward to visit with Cowboys

    LSU wide receiver Brandon LaFell will be getting on a plane today for a quick ride from Houston to Valley Ranch for a visit with the Cowboys.

    He'll have his suit and tie ready.

    "It's like you're going for a job interview, bringing you in, seeing what you're about," LaFell said. "Your appearance is the first thing they see so you've got to be clean cut with a suit and tie. That's how I'm going at it. It's my last chance to show these guys why I should be a first round or second round pick in their eyes."

    LaFell, who grew up a Cowboys fan and trained in McKinney at the Michael Johnson Performance Center this winter, caught 63 passes for 929 yards and eight touchdowns last season, which tied for the most in the SEC. At 6-2, 211 pounds, he has the size the Cowboys like in wide outs. He ran a 4.55 40-yard dash at his pro day.

    "You really can't base everything off a 40," LaFell said. "You've got to look at a guy's game film. If he's a 4.4 or a 4.3, that's good, but if he doesn't play at a 4.4 or a 4.3 then it doesn't matter."

    Something to remember from a couple of years ago when factoring in the Cowboys' interest: Jason Garrett really liked Early Doucet, who went to Arizona in the third round. While not completely similar players, there could be something about LSU wide outs that catches Garrett's eye. I know Doucet hasn't broken out yet, but some of that is opportunity. With Anquan Boldin gone, I'm sure he will get more chances with the Cardinals in 2010.

    I like your first 2, and your last pick, but I think you could have done a few things better

    This is what I would have done, make a trade down, even if it is 2 to 3 spots down, to take nate allen. That should get you a 5th and 7th rounder.

    Your 3rd, 4th and 6th rounder while it fits needs, possibly with alittle more homework on mock drafts, websites for mock drafts, you could have possibly gotten some players like Brandon Spikes who will fall due to his poor speed in 40, but he is a playmaker on defense. Also, for example Jason Fox will drop some due to his injury and lack of health with his heart condition, or another top OT that will fall some or a top OG.

    I would also look at a way to get a McCluster or Dorin Dickerson to improve our offense in redzone and make mismatches against opposing defenses.

    McCluster will go in 2nd round, Dickerson anywhere from 3rd to 4th.

    Finally, 3 players out of 6 isnt bad, but look at some mocks on websites like nfl draft blitz, ourlads, draft tex, etc... Im not a big fan of Wang, lacks umph and size that the cowboys covet.



    Your getting there though.

    Yea ..... I was looking for smart guys or guys with a lot of passion and desire.

    And I probably could have made some better picks with a little more research.

    But Ed Wang and Mike Neal are pet cats of mine ..... and Brandon Carter is just a mean SOB.

    I hate speculating trades because I have never seen a trade prediction come true.

    Thanks for looking it over.

    That is a bit of a stretch for Wang.

    Thats what she said?

    Ok now that thats out of the way.

    I think Wang is not only a good player but also has a marketing aspect that Jerry would have to find enticing.

    First Chinese American to play in the NFL.

    His mother and father played for the Chinese Olympic team.

    It may sound racist ...... but as a business man you cannot dismiss what happened in China when Yao Ming joined the Rockets.

    Or how Argentina all became Spurs fans when Manu became a star.

    But he is a great prospect ..... smart and pass blocks extremely well in college.

    Yeah, gotta admit I love that about him.

    I'm actually surprised everyone doesn't show up in a suit, or at the very least a shirt and tie. I can understand if finance is an issue for some, but your agent should be able to get you a damn suit.

    I honestly think it's the worst mock I've seen.

    Lafell and Wang?

    Dear god..

    LaFell is good. What don't you like about him? The fact that he isn't 5'4 and runs a 4.2 40? Child plz. LaFell is good someone we need in Dallas. Not thrilled with Nate Allen at all especially not in the first.

    The fact that he's ANOTHER slow possession reciever and brings zero contribution to the return game or coverage unit.

    Other than that, ya. Great use of a 2nd rounder.

    :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
