The Drafted, The Undrafted And Trading?

With the draft ending after three days I can honestly say that I enjoyed it. I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it being on Prime-time, but it ended up being a good idea by the NFL. I think what made it exciting was of course chatting with all my fellow LSS friends as well as being able to watch what was going on in the Cowboys war room. Every time someone in the room picked up a phone or got out of their seat I thought something was happening. Oh, I almost forgot, the Cowboys drafted some guy named Dez Bryant. I hear he is supposed to be a pretty good receiver. Of course I’m kidding. I was jumping out of my chair as the Cowboys traded up and then the commissioner announced Bryant’s name as the next Dallas Cowboy. I can tell all of you this. As much as the Giants fans that I know tried to cover it up, I know they were not happy that the Cowboys were able to get Bryant.

As far as our other picks are concerned I can honestly say I don’t know much about them. So many people have their opinions of how teams did or how players are going to work out. The Cowboys can only hope that they picked some players that will contribute to the team this year and years to come. Let’s not forgot that many players from last years draft class either never made it to the field or barely made it to the field. Players like Robert Brewster, Mike Hamlin, Jason Williams, Brandon Williams, Stephen Hodge and Victor Butler.

After the draft the Cowboys started to sign some undrafted free agents per ESPN.com.

Chris Gronkowski, fullback/tight end, Arizona

Phil Costa, center, Maryland

Matt Nichols, quarterback, Eastern Washington

Chet Teofilo, guard, Cal

Lonyae Miller, running back, Fresno State

Barry Church, safety, Toledo

Terrell Hudgins, wide receiver, Elon

Will Barker, tackle, Virginia

Now we have been hearing that Patrick Crayton, Sam Hurd, Martellus Bennett and possibly Tashard Choice are available to be traded. I’m not overly happy with the trade talk about Choice. I don’t want him traded and I think it would hurt the Cowboys down the road. Hurd would not be a big loss and as far as Crayton, I don’t blame him for wanting to go somewhere because he wants to play more. I guess we just have to wait and see how things play out.

    Hey Rob, I jotted down what I thought would be the current 53 man roster and depth chart and a seperate notes page on what spots should still be addressed and possible trade bait. I’ll post the links here. If you get time, check them out and let me know what ya think. Goiod post by the way. The Giants fan should be afraid. VERY afraid!

      I like the lineup. Not sure if Olgetree will be ahead of Crayton, but I sure would love it since I’m a big time Olgetree fan. I can also see them making a change at fullback as well if they can find the right guy.

      I can see JJ making some news in free agency now that the draft is over. Along the OL like your suggested. Now sure if anyone would trade for Hurd. I don’t want any of our RBs traded. I like our rotation. Maybe trade Bennett. What about Sharper at safety? Do you see JJ going after him or do they believe in Ball that much?

    As far was the wide-outs go I think should go Miles, Williams, Bryant, Ogletree and Crayton. Hurd and Crayton wanting out is no problem with me, but if I was Crayton I would stay seeing how Ogletree and Bryant are just rookies. I hope Choice isn’t leaving. No way I’m happy with that, but to his own credit should be starting for some team out there who needs a halfback.

    I can live without Crayton, Hurd, and Bennett but not Choice. We cannot trade Choice, infact he should be starting and let Barber (if we can’t trade him) close. Do you think Da Boys would trade Barber instead?
