Round 1 Pick 24 (Dallas gave New England its first-round pick (27th overall), and its third-rounder, the 90th overall, to move up three spots and also received a fourth-round pick, 119th overall.)

Dez Bryant

Round 2 Pick 23 (Cowboys Give Second Round pick 59 and 4th round pick 125 to move up to second round pick #55

Overall

I am really liking the trade up to get Bryant. The guy wants to be here and has a solid mentor to keep him out of trouble. Someone really needs to sink in his head the importance of good behavior. I feel he will be fine nand turn out to be a very good WR. As Jerry said "Bring out #88".

Moving up to grab Sean Lee was a great move to. Dallas feels he can help out immediately and play a solid role for years to come. After watching some video he looks real good. I had him #2 behind Mcclain as an ILB.

Owusu-Ansah is a converted cornerback who has strong ball skills. I feel he will impact the Cowboys immediately on special teams and returns. His ability to impact the regular defense is dependent on how fast he is able to grasp the defense and adjust to the steep learning curve from Division II to the NFL. Guess we will see.

Sam Young: He started four straight years at Notre Dame, which speaks volumes. He blocks his man, although he lacks great lateral quickness. Young will most likely be tried out at right tackle even though he came into College as a LT. He was rated the best Olineman out of high school before his Freshman year. I think he will be a Marc Columbo type who is servicable but not top talent.

Jamar Wall is an good cover corner who groomed for the NFL by covering Michael Crabtree in practice and Dez Bryant in the Big 12. Should be able to compete for the fourth corner spot and impact on special teams. What I like ab out this guy is he will make a tackle.

Sean Lissemore is a high energy, athletic lineman who can play end and tackle. He has a non-stop motor and reminds the Cowboys of Jay Ratliff. Late pick so we can afford to miss here.

Overall B+

I'm with you about Sean Lee. I think he's got a solid future ahead. I could definitely see him stepping up and becoming a key player. :) ;-D
