Dez Bryant! Was watching some film on Bryant and this guy looks legit. He is exactly what we need and especially if we don't pick up a big time WR in free agency, and Dez is still available at the 12 spot, I say we make him a Miami Dolphin.

LB is argueably our biggest weakness, and Parcells doesn't tend to like drafting WR's in the first round. That being said, I could see this pick going for Rolando McClain from Bama or Brandon Spikes from Florida. I attend Florida, so I've seen Spikes play many times, but I thought McClain might be the better pick (mostly because Spikes reminds me of Crowder :lol:). After watching video on both LB's, I think Spikes would be a great fit. He shoots gaps, hits hard, and never lets up. McClain seems to wait for the play to develop instead of getting involved fast and early. From the highlights I've seen, McClain looks slow and makes arm tackles that will be easily broken in the NFL. McClain does seem to read plays well and may be superior in pass coverage though. Spikes is a Zach Thomas type of MLB, involved on every play, and makes big, open field tackles. As of now, I would choose Spikes over McClain.

Some people say we may go after a DT or a DE. Haven't looked at these prospects (heard Tennesse has a beast of a lineman) so I'm not too sure about this. I think we have a solid D-Line when our guys are healthy and say we build depth later in the draft regarding the D & O-lines.

Dez Bryant would be the best pick IMO. An exciting and an immediate impact player. He has Andre Johnson potential and is easily the best WR in the draft. We can find some good LB's in other rounds and with a somewhat weak WR class, let's go for the top and not let this oppurtunity pass.

Dez Bryant, Hartline, Bess, Cam, & Ginn (maybe replacing Ginn with a FA) with Henne at the controls and Ronnie, Ricky, Cobbs and/or Lex pounding the rock. Now that's a damn potent offense.

I wish, I really feel like he will be gone before we pick. I want McClain we need an upgrade at LB badly.

God willing Parcells drops his antiquated philosophies about not picking receivers high and pulls the trigger on this kid. I wholeheartedly agree and I think by the time the draft comes around we might have to trade up to get Bryant. He is going to shred the workouts.

I disagree. I think either Spikes, McClain, or Dan Williams would be the pick to make. Defense is a much bigger need. If we take offense though, it better be for CJ Spiller or Dez Bryant.

Is anyone paying attention to what is going on in the coaching staff?

Without even knowing the talent available, you determine Bryant the choice. :facepalm:

Not a chance we draft Bryant, fellas. He announced today that he has signed Michael Crabtree's agent, Eugene Parker.

Somehow, I don't see Parcells putting up with any of that nonsense.

My vote is for McClain.

I'd prefer to see us trade back about 8 or less spots and pick up a couple extra picks, and then take the highest rated ILB or NT on the board.

... the Dolphins move up to #10 and get Rolando McClain.

basically, I could have copy and pasted this as my response.

damn him for hiring that agent, parcells will want nothing to do with that guy. lucky for us, we might get mcclain.

i know alot of people dont like him, but i think the pick will be taylor mays. if you look at his junior year, he was top 5 talent. alot of people didnt like brian hartline, but he also suffered from a bad last year in college. i think alot of people will have a different view of taylor mays when he runs a 4.3 forty at the combine.

McClain won't be available at #12 and I doubt they would trade up sacrificing picks. I think the choice will be Williams and if they feel they can drop a few spots and still get him while acquiring extra picks, I thnk that is what will unfold.

Why are they going to take another SS? They have 3 on the roster now? They need a FS. Taylor Mays does not fill that need.

In 12 drafts with the Patsies, Jets and Cowboys Parcells drafted 1 WR in the 1st round (Terry Glenn) and we know what that led to because it was not what he wanted but was over ruled. In 93 and 94 he drafted Vincent Brisby and Kevin Lee in the 2nd round. That is it for WR's in the 1st 2 rounds of the draft. I don't think you'll see the Phins pick a WR early. I think they will address it through free agency with a lower tier WR. Front 7 on defense will be the focus imo.

Only the Chiefs, Giants, Rams, Titans, Lions, and Bucs allowed more points than us this season. Our defense was pathetic. If we don't draft defense in the first round this year, we deserve to lose every game we play next year. You can't have that glaring a hole on your team and simply not address it.

We'll im no draft scout man, but I know we cleary need a big #1 receiver, and what little I've seen from Bryant, I would be satisfied if he was our pick in the 1st round. LB would be fine with me too. But D-line in the 1st would be a mistake. We have a good line, need to work on filling the obvious holes first. This may all change once FA signings start progressing... looong way to draft time.

I dont care as long as its Defense. but i would rather see a FS than a NT or LB.

Why would you put Tebow no there? that just seems stupid, you might as well have an option for every player in college if you think there is a chance we take a crappy QB/TE in the first round.

I have a feeling it will be Sergio Kindle. I'd like us to sign Dansby as a FA and draft Kindle with our 1st pick. Then in the 2nd round draft a WR like Arrelious Benn from Illinois if he's available.

we are going after defense folks, when you blow 4th qtr leads left and right they way we did last year the defense needs help big time, henne was able to move the ball with the wr's we had, we will get a wr in the later rounds but not with pick 12

McClain or Spiller in the first!

I think it is either McClain, Bryant or we trade down a couple spots for an extra pick....anyone at the 12th spot could be around at the 20th spot as well.

I think we gotta see what other changes come to the coaching staff. We don't want to draft somebody that doesn't fit the staff's view.

Hahahaha sorry man but if you don't see that as the obvious joke it is, I worry for you. Notice how Tebow was listed as the option AFTER "Get drunk and pull names from a hat." Just some good old fun to lighten up the mood in the somber Fin Heaven atmosphere of late.

Many of our issues on D stemmed from PP - not saying that we don't need help, but our players never had a fighting chance.

Also, let's just say - for the sake of argument - that all or our issues on D were due to a lack of talent: Would you pass on a star WR for a pretty good ILB? I wouldn't. In the 1st, you have to draft great players. D. Bryant will demand double teams and make game-changing plays. McClain will be solid.

Also, if McClain is available (doubt he will be), he may not be the best ILB available (not convinced he's better than Spikes), and I'm pretty sure that he won't be the best defensive player available (C. Dunlap will probably be there).

I don't get the love affair with McClain.
