I know a couple of Iggles fans on Twitter who are deathly afraid of us getting McDowell. They should be. Hope we have the options.


I would expect BJJ to be doing backflips if the Cowboys land McDowell or Bowser In the 2nd. Also I believe Tabor will still be there in the 3rd.


So much for BJJ doing backflips...

Yea, sucks they're all gone. I'm thinking the Cowboys will pick Cordea Tankersley.

Still not bad! Lewis in the 3rd is the eventual replacement for Scandrick. Considering they're shopping him for a pick I seriously doubt he makes it out of camp without getting cut.

Apparently (according to Jerry) they're not trying to trade Scandrick. Scandrick says his agent told him they are trying to trade him though. Weird situation. Either way the Dallas secondary should be stacked this year.

I'm hearing (on twitter) rumors that the Cowboys are looking for an offensive player that can excel on ST in the 4th. I think they are looking for a return man that can replace Whitehead.

I would almost prefer they draft Xavier Woods (safety) or Jake Butt (TE). Both look like they will be there in the 4th.

Ryan Switzer WR UNC

Dude looks like a Cole Beasley clone. He's the return guy they were looking for. He's an excellent slot WR. He should be the eventual replacement for Lucky Whitehead which I'm perfectly ok with.

Three picks left... and I'm giving this draft an A (like that matters...)

Coach Marinelli must be licking his chops.

As a Die Hard tar Heel fan, you guys will love Switzer.

The Cowboys are going to eat defenses up on short passes this year.

Taco may not be the exciting pick some were hoping for, but the Cowboys had too many needs to waste draft ammo moving up, and couldn't take the risk of moving down. He was the safe pick in terms of need and fit, and (IMO) he set the table for the picks they made on day 2 and 3.

It'll be a year or 2 til we really know how good this draft was, but for now, I am quite happy with it. It looks like Stephen and Jason have finally helped Jerry find Draft Day Jesus.

Completely agree with all the above. And - add Will McClay to that "Draft Day Jesus" gathering. We haven't had a trifecta like this since the Landry/Tex/Brandt good ol' days. Our arrow is point up... as long as we can keep Jerry from grabbing Johnny Football. :o
