When I see a draft analyst mention that Seattle would be interested in a cornerback I have to wonder, just how wrong he is with all the other teams.

I know some stuff about every team, but I don't pretend to know what the 3rd or 4th hole to fill is for the Bucs respectively on both sides of the ball.

If the Eagles trade up for Mike Williams or Braylon Edwards, I will just officially give up all hope that they're never going to win a Super Bowl.

I shutter to think how good the Eagles could be if Freddie Mitchell and Jerome McDougle were good players instead of busts. Thank God the Eagles don't draft that good in the first round. ;-D

Two is all you got? I expected more from you man.

1998 Tra Thomas - Pro Bowler, good choice.
1999 McNabb - And us Philly fans wanted Ricky... we were dumb.
2000 Corey Simon - Another Pro Bowler
2002 Lito Sheppard - Not often you replace a Pro Bowl veteran CB with a better younger Pro Bowl CB.

Eagles don't draft good... that's awesome stuff... especially grammatically.

Anyways, this guy is an idiot (the article writer), so Aww, you can be sure this guy boned up the Cowboys draft. We have major holes at CB, SS and QB. We have need-worthy holes at DE and especially WR. The LB corps, while not studly, is solid, and was responsible for Dallas' respectable run defense. So this guy says to draft an OLB. While it would be nice to have a stud LB (though Nguyen and Coakley are darned near, if not studly), it is in NO WAY, SHAPE OR FORM A NEED. Especially not "11th in the draft" need. Dallas drafts on needs, not the "best player on board" method.

LB is definetly a need for Dallas, some people have said that DE and LB are more pressing needs than CB for Dallas.

I would put Dallas' needs in this order...

DE
CB
LB
DT
WR

And I only put linebacker that high if Dallas plans to switch to the 3-4. If Dallas sticks to the 4-3, I don't think linebacker is a need at all.

I think CB is a bigger need for Dallas than LB. Brady James is starting to play like the stud he was at LSU and Parcells likes him. However a quote I read from Parcells leads me to believe Dallas will not take a CB in the first round.

He was basically saying that due to the new rules no matter how good a corner is they simply can not be a shut down corner anymore. Therefore he is happy to roll out Pete Hunter's and the like.

I would be happy if they went D-Line, D-Line in the first. That group is pretty crappy.

A stud LB would be nice to have, but with so many other holes to fill, no way is it worthy of our 1st rounders. Unless for some crazy reason, DJ fell to eleven. Which he won't.

Anyways, Dallas has Dat Nguyen (still good), Dexter Coakley (as fiery as ever), Alshermond Singleton (decent enough to get by) and Bradie James (stud in the making). Granted, Dex is getting up there, and Dat/Alshermond are no spring chickens, but lets wait until next year to draft an LB. Or maybe just fix it with FA. But with the first round picks, there are so many other ways we can improve...

WR - geriatrics... Quincy is the only younger one of the group, and the team is in need of a young protege after the departure of Antonio Bryant. A stud is needed.

DE- if we switch to a 3-4, which it looks like, we won't need a DT anymore, which is awesome. And personally, Marcellus Wiley had some of his best years when SD ran the 3-4. I'd waste a mid-rounder on a DE to add some depth, but I am all for giving Marcellus one more shot... especially in a 3-4.

QB- If the team is giving up on Henson, which I don't agree with, I say get a new QB NOW. No more Vinny...

OT-a right tickle would be great to complement stud Flozell Adams

OG- Larry is getting old... and I think Rodgers is being switched to tackle.

CB- Pete Hunter... that's all I'm saying

SS- big need. without our leader, we are in for some troubled times... so we need towait for Roy to assume leadership, which he didn;t so a great job of this year. but he will soon enough. but a SS is needed to fill the glaring hole.

CB
SS
WR
DE
QB
OT
OG
