DAL 18th Pick (rd 1)

- in exchange for -

SF 31st Pick (rd 1)  ;  SF 76th Pick (rd 3)  ;  SF 127th Pick (rd 4)


  • Why San Francisco will likely accept the trade:

- Points value of trade according to draft pick points chart favors SF 900 to DAL 855

- San Fran began draft with two 3rd round picks, after trade they will still select in 3rd round

- San Fran is a complete team just a few players away.  Moving up to 18th will allow them to get a top flight first-round starter.  Picking at 31 doesn’t provide the same likelihood, unless you identify and desire an under-valued player (as I do)

  • Why Dallas is offering the trade:

-  The player I covet in the 1st round will likely be available at Pick 31, yet gone by Pick 50

-  Dallas will be picking up an extra 3rd round pick ( to use in another trade)

-  To gain an extra 4th round pick which increases total selections to 7 players



DAL 76th Pick (rd 3 from SF)  ;  DAL 82nd Pick (rd 3)

- in exchange for -

MIA 56th Pick (rd 2)  ;  MIA 141st Pick (rd 5)


  • Why Miami will likely accept the trade:

- Points value of trade according to draft pick points chart favors MIA 390 to DAL 375.5

- Miami had a huge total of 10 draft picks before this offer, and undoubtedly came in looking for trades

- Miami began draft with two 2nd round picks, after trade they still select in every round but 5th

- Miami is a building team several players away.  They will now have five picks in the top 3 rounds of the draft, instead of four


  • Why Dallas is offering the trade:

-  The player I covet will likely be gone by early 3rd round, so we use two 3rd rounders to move up into 2nd round

-  Dallas gains an extra 5th round pick which increases total selections to 8 players



Round 1 (31st pick from SF)

Round 2 (50th pick)

Round 2 (56th pick from MIA)

Round 4 (113th pick)

Round 4 (127th pick from SF)

Round 5 (141st pick from MIA)

Round 5 (146th pick)

Round 6 (177th pick)

    I like where you are going with this, but I might’ve picked a few different players. But I like what your draft is geared towards. I also don’t like not having a third round pick, there are two guys I think we could get that would be a huge impact in the 3rd:

    1) Alvin Bailey OG Arkansas
    2) Jelani Jenkins OLB Flordia

    I’m also no longer a fan of Barrett Jones, I think he’s a little soft and benefited from playing with such a good line. at 1.31 in no particular order I’d rather take

    1) Kawaan Short DT Purdue
    2) DJ Fluker OT Bama
    3) Dallas Thomas OG/OT Tennesse

    I am not a fan of trading back. We have plenty of ok players. We need more dominant players. We must get top flight players that can start or contribute right now.
    Your approach is seeking quantity. I would rather have quality. Remember the 2009 draft? 12 picks and not a single starter… ever. This is still screwing us to this day. Boys aren’t good at drafting. We need sure things. Don’t try to out wit the league with small school players. JJ tries this way to much. And loses most of the time.
    1. Take Sheldon Richardson at 18. No to Vaccaro. No safety in the 1st rd. DL or OL.
    2. Warford – YES!
    3. Carradine – no more red shirt years. We need help now. This really depends on what happens with Spencer. And this kid is to small.
    4. Bell sounds great. But I think we should be going after Chris Ivory of the Saints. Then use this spot for OL or DL.
    5. Safety spot – Have we given up on Church and Johnson already?
    6. Kaufman – NO more small school players. The one position that we don’t need to draft for is WR. Possession WR? That’s Miles and Beasley’s job. And we haven’t even seen Coale yet.

    The Draft is simple. If there are 6 Picks then Dallas takes 4 Linemen in Total – OT, Guard/Centre, DE, DT. Then add a Safety and a Running back to replace Jones. In order I would put this froward: Rd 1 OT/Guard Rd 2 DE Rd 3 OT/Guard or Centre Rd 4 DT Rd 5 Safety Rd 6 RB. Just select the best available at time of the Draft process in these positions. Its a NO BRAINER!!!

    First of all Brad great article It look like you put some though into this one. I have always been a fan of the trade down I too dont buy the first rd hype. I like a lot of your players here. I too have notice your WR from E Washinton, but I was hoping to get him as unfa. I like your RB also but I had my eye on unfa DJ Spencer from Boise and Stephon Jefferson from Reno Nevada.. I like your DE in the sec also but I think it to high to get him at this spot. The ACL injury most likely will red shirt him this year. I had my eye on another Safety in the third rd, The Safety from Fresno State, but at least you know the safeties are an issue here in Dallas. Rather than take the TE late I believe we can get one of the top Center left in this draft or even a OG like Travis Bond here. I was hoping to pick up a 7th rd Pick and address the QB position with Collin Klein 6-5 QB with 39 td to 15 interception in the last two years of college along with his 2000 yards rushing and 50 TD. He a project at best but I think with the right coach can become something special

    There an possible UNFA CB Gregg Reid who may or may not be in this draft, he from Florida state, he is part of the nation best trio ast CB in college ball. Reid had numerous off the field incident, the program released him at the end of the year. I was looking at picking him up as UNFA but I would also take him in the 7th should we get for Picks by trading down. We just dont have enough picks and too many need. He a good special team player also, can help us in that department. Dustin Harris Texas A & M is another CB I was looking to get as UNFA
