In a scenario where Jerry is not completely convinced that Doug Free will hold up the blind side and value his ability to back-up either tackle spot, this could be an option:
27. TRADE to Baltimore for Jared Gaither
There WILL be a projected first round tackle that falls to the Cowboys at 27. Could be any one of these three; Anthony Davis, Charles Brown or Bruce Campbell. They could also reach for a tweener such as Roger Saffold from Indiana or U-Mass’ Vladimir Ducasse. Davis is the only one I’d take for sure. Unfortunately, he is gone. The Cowboys could also look for safety help here, where Taylor Mays might have fallen to. The thing with Mays though, is his square hips and weak reputation as a bawl-hawk, which is our primary concern for our new free-safety. No matter how you would use him in Wade’s 3-4 (safety or linebacker) there would be a learning curve and that simply can’t happen with this pick. Either trade up or get max value. Don’t reach or take on another project. The Cowboys offer their first round pick this year to Baltimore, where all the other teams interested were offering a second round pick plus a fourth or a 2011 future pick. Jerry is the highest bidder and gets tremendous value out of the 27th pick in the draft.
59. Morgan Burnett
S Georgia Tech
The Cowboys are impressed with his body of work at Tashard Choice’s alma mater.
His Combine and Pro-Day results might make him a goner before the Cowboys pick at 59, but today we’re lucky.
90. John Jerry
G Ole Miss
A 6’5″ 335 lb. mauling run blocker is what the Boys get in the third round with John. Jerry was an All-SEC first-teamer.
Should be able to develop this year and slide into Kyle Kosier’s spot when hios contract expires, or at least compete with Brewster if he (Brewster) doesn’t stay at tackle like recently reported. Solid pick.
125. Donovan Warren
No way he’s still on the board. Well, if teams look at his post-college work, then maybe.
Warren ran a slower 40 at his Pro Day (4.62) than at the Combine (4.59).
I don’t need a track star. I want a cover corner. Thank you. Please drive through.
196. John Conner
His duties would include the following; run bock, pass protect, catch out of the backfield and play special teams.
If John works out, he’ll be the steal of the draft.
234. Brett Swenson
K Michigan State
A college kicker to compete with Connor Hughes and David Buehler.
May the best man win.
