First off - love the rumor floating around that Dallas is shopping Doug Free to New Orleans for a pick - if that happens Dallas is drafting a tackle in the first. I really like Fluker a lot. If that did not happen, and the top OL prospects were gone, i wouldnt mind trading down 5-7 spots and picking up a 2nd or 3rd round pick and select Jonathan Cyprien safety from Florida International...
1st Round 18th Pick - OT Fluker - Alabama
Others: S Cyprien, Cooper, Warmack, Vaccaro
2nd round 47th pick - DT Short - Purdue
Others: S - Elam, S - Reid, DT Williams, OT Armstead
3rd Round 80th pick - OL Jones - Alabama
Others: S- Thomas, S - Williams, RB - Randle
4th round 114th pick - S - Tony Jefferson - Oklahoma
Others: S- Rambo, WR - Swope, RB - Ball, RB - Taylor
5th Round 150th pick - QB Landry Jones - Oklahoma
Others: LB - Hodges, Ath - Robinson, DT - Hill
6th Round 185th pick - DE Gholston - Michigan State
Others: OT Williams, OG Thornton, CB Hyde, OLB Jenkins
This to me would be a very good scenario - addressing the three biggest needs with first four picks...
Oline needs a bit of nasty on it, IF we picked Fluker with first pick i would be ecstatic....especially if there were able to trade free in the process and pick up a first or second in the process. Fluker was said by Warmack to be the attitude behind that line...i saw a comparison that said he was a mix of Eric Williams with size of flozell adams...pretty good comparisons....
If we could get Short and Jones with our next two picks our OL and DL would look better! Now throw in the mix a potential trade for Free that would give us someones 2nd or 3rd round pick - get a guy like Warford from Kentucky or even Menelik Watson from FSU or Kyle Long from Oregon. You put these pieces in place and the two most important parts of a team are immediately improved greatly!!!!
