    Best player available, with focus on removing dead weight from roster.

  • I agree

    There is no right or wrong answer. Pick the best OL or DL available at 18! I do believe that a motor(DT) that runs the Dallas 2 will be the pick.

    • Truth

      I’m thinking the same, a DT that works well with the scheme. So far, IMO, there will be more top DTs than OTs and/or OLinemen. But we do need to hit the trenches….DL more than OL.

  • californy

    I believe the boys should get the best lineman available someone who can push the pile backwards and get us more Red zone TD

  • californy

    I would even take a trade down as long as we have numerous player where we can pick at, who can start for us.

    I say Defense all the way!!! Specifically an Interior Linemen just as was the case last yr. It was the universal consensus and again, I say the right one. Except as we all know and/or remember, Jerry hijacked the 13′ draft and gave up a lot for Claiborne, which in hindsight was stupid as I said then.
    I remember both Jerry and Stephan saying they wanted DL first and foremost. Rob…if I remember right, wanted defense but more DBs and JG, if correct again, wanted OL.
    I think Jerry panicked and combined with last yrs. losing out on Patrick Peterson and thus, most likely thought Claiborne would be that Peterson. If it was, than it would have been worth it but as we can now accept, he was not and in fact, far from it.
    Now, it is my strong opinion that the OL in general did pretty good. Not to mentioned address to some point. Doug Free was the most disappointing especially with the type of money he is getting. Injuries really hurt more than anything. Well, let me correct myself, the weak QB play was the most problematic. Romo starts off slow, putting both the defense and ability to win in a bind. Throughout the season he started out slow or what football gurus would say, stunk-up the place. Was horrid in his accuracy and very lethargic in his passing downfield!!(that deserves 2 exclamation pts.).
    Romo also stunk it up in the holding of the ball for way too long. Which made his OL look bad. I mean how many times did we see him holding the ball for 5, 6 or more seconds??! That OL with a better QB would do wonders for this team. Heck, even McGee could do better just as he did in 2010!! Of course, for those who thought McGee didn’t have it in him or the talent, he was just picked-up by Texans I believe. Heck, if you guys remember, JG didn’t want to let him go, keeping him – in a surprise move – on the 53-man roster. I strongly believe that Jerry was up to his old “I’m the Coach here” tricks and called for someone else to be on the 53.

    Did I say, ; ), Sheldon Richardson over Star Lotulelei, Jonathan Hankins, and too just get to the point, over what cas said was best player for Cowboys as far as DTs goes, Kawann Short.
    Okay, thanks!
