    If they don't get a good WR at #11 their offense is going to be pathetic this year. Marshall made Orton look better than he really is. If they don't get a good WR we'll all see just how average Orton is.

    I think that it's either stay put and draft Rolando McClain or Dez Bryant.

    If we trade down, I think the targets will be Jared Odrick, Maurkice Pouncey, or Dan Williams.

    I'd be happy with any of those players, but not the bunch of three at #11 overall.

    It's apparant to me that although McD's comments are confusing to us re: where he is leaning; it leaves the door open to any teams listening that he will consider moving up, down or sideways depending upon who McD has on his board that he wants.

    Personally, I would like him to take McClain if he is available at #11 and then trade UP to take Pouncy.

    There are any number of adequate WR's and linemen available later in the draft, but McClain and Pouncy would fill two BIG holes immediately.

    Then again, who knows how the teams above us will confuse things with possible trades or inane picks (Raiders?). Interesting times, for sure.

    I'm guessing that with some of the "news" today that the last option will pick up a few more votes. I'm starting to get the feeling that not one of us has hit on what will actually happen - that it will indeed be something crazy and unpredictable (and likely controversial enough to set this place off).

    sounded to me like he was very open to trading down. Almost seemed like his first option and has a guy picked just incase they cant get the trade they want

    Looks like most of us think we'll trade down and grab Pouncey. Not a bad plan and it wouldn't surprise me at all. Any other thoughts / votes?

    RD1. Trade down a couple picks where Pouncey is valued.
    Good value - needed player

    RD2. Take best WR available (BENN, TATE, WILLIAMS)
    fills hole by Marshall leaving

    RD2. Take Tyson Alualu
    I predict will be one of the top D lineman in the draft. Guy plays all DL positions and has a motor that doesn't quit.

    You get three probable starters and you still have the rest of the draft plus the additional picks from the trade down to fill holes and add depth.

    Gut feeling tells me it will be Dez Bryant.

    People keep on mentioning Philadelphia and Green Bay, it would be costly either one of those teams to move up to the 11th overall pick, unless McDaniels is willing to just forsake a heap of value.

    If we trade down, I see it being with San Francisco for the 17th and 79th overall pick.

    Pouncey (i.e. Center) might be our biggest need and I would love if we could trade down and grab him, and then get Williams/Thomas/Tate/Benn with one of our seconds. Some mocks have us getting Pouncey with our 2nd 2nd round pick, but I don't think he'll fall that far, will he?

    Regarding Spiller... I think there's a good chance he'll be gone before #11 so if they really wanted him (and I don't think the Broncos do) then trading up might be the only way. That, plus the fact that we used our first last year on Knowshon says we won't go there.... but crazier things have happened.

    Fairly even spread on the poll options so far.

    Keep 'em coming!!!

    READY FOR THIS THERE WILL BE TWO! Nah but seriously i've been sayin it for since the marshall trade happen we trade the 45th 2nd round and a later one or two( later the better) to move into the 20th pick area just before we think POUNCEY will go...so two picks with the 11th we grab DEZ with the (around) 20th we grab POUNCEY and with the 43rd we grab SEAN LEE or BRANDON SPIKES i like LEE but in guessing SPIKES

    That would be three immediate impact starters with the first three picks(positions that mostly can start on day one) at three spots we need to fill bad. You got the top rated WR top rated C and one of the top 3 rated ILB( of which i don't feel there is a tremendous talent difference)... then we look for a TE with the next pick and im happy right there....

    DEZ...POUNCEY....SPIKES(LEE) and a TE dude from southern Cal looks good in the third if we can keep the third and trade a later one to move into the area for POUNCEY that is.:go:

    EDIT....... LEE is way under rated and over looked like i said i like Lee but guessed spikes... i'd like to edit that and say LEE all the way in the second... i just looked at a mock that had him going at 46th so at 43rd there is a good possibility its LEE so im saying ....DEZ at around 11th POUNCEY with a trade up into around the 20th pick and then LEE at our 43rd and then TE MCOY from Southern Cal in third if we have the third still

    NO I WILL NOT SPOON WITH YOU!

    I wanna see dez get drafted to us. But i wouldnt cry about mcclain or pouncey

    I honestly have no idea. I know what I'd like to see happen, but I couldn't tell you what the team will do. I think the preference at this point might be to trade back and stockpile 2nd/3rd rounders. I can't really argue with the idea, either. If we stand pat, who the hell knows?
    I'm the same way. There are things that I would like to see happen, but when you have a coach lay things out that clearly then my first reaction is to not believe ANY of it. We only have 1 year so far from which we can gauge McD's drafting philosophy/tendencies, but I think that press conference coupled with what actually happens will go a long ways in helping us understand "the new process" in the future.
