Makes me wonder some about Leary.

I would think Looney dresses for games since he can back up center and guard, and we'll dress a swing tackle.

With Leary not dressing, are we better served trying to get something for him in a trade or keeping him as the guard who would take over full time if either Collins or Martin is hurt?

Good point. Leary can't play center and he's signed for $2.5 million this year (the value of his second round tender). Maybe he's traded for a pick or two in the draft. I think a 3rd and a 7th is a fair price.

Huge hole filled we have arguably neglected the last few with no true backup C. We still need a swing tackle although the FO may feel that's taken care of already.

Would like a young fast RB with some size and wiggle. Not asking for much I realize esp since it needs to come from the later rounds but....

Bernadeau didn't count? He looked like a pretty good backup center to me.

Jason Garrett clapping regarding a decent depth signing. Position flex with some experience at 25...not bad.

So we got O-line covered. Probably won't do anything about RB. Not sure if we'll address TE this year. Could see us getting a WR. We'll see about QB. Defense still needs a lot of addressing.

I wouldn't go that far, I think this team likes Henry, don't be surprised to see him as the pick at 34. RB not TE by the way.

I thought 8 OL usually dress on gameday. Is it only 7??? If so, Leary definitely would be the odd man out.

I'd take him in the 3rd or possibly with a trade down. Just not sure he's worth #34 overall when there will still be a lot of good players on the board. If we traded down and picked up multiple 2nd round picks, I'd be all for spending one of them on Henry... I'd definitely take Treadwell if he's still there at 34.. He's easily the best talent that could possibly still be available at 34.

If Leary is just going to be inactive most weeks I say trade him
