Below is our revised list of the top 2010 NFL Draft prospects, along with a rundown of big risers and fallers. Players changed positions not only based on Combine results, but also due to extra opportunity for us to study game film.

Risers

Sean Weatherspoon, Devin McCourty, Dan Williams, Morgan Burnett, DeMaryius Thomas, Arrelious Benn, Vladimir Ducasse, Golden Tate, Eric Norwood, Kareem Jackson, Ryan Mathews, Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, Geno Atkins, Roger Saffold, Ricky Sapp, Marshall Newhouse, Major Wright, Ben Tate

Fallers

Dez Bryant, Joe Haden, Anthony Davis, Dezmon Briscoe, Donovan Warren, Brandon LaFell, Jon Asamoah, Everson Griffen, Brandon Ghee, Chad Jones, Jordan Shipley, Damian Williams, Myron Rolle, Jason Fox, Aaron Hernandez, Micah Johnson

As before, players we see as potential Cowboys’ draft picks are listed in bold. Some players not in bold may be good fits in Dallas but the team just won’t be in position to select them.

Concerns about Dez Bryant's attitude and work ethic have dropped him on our board.

  2. john coleman says:

    I hope the draft goes the way you have them listed. But I don’t want Bradford at 27th. There should be some really good players fall to us. I agree completely with your QB assessment, and I’m glad we don’t need one. In my mind none of them are guys to build your franchise on. Bradford is easily the best talent, but the injury is very likely to recur. Some of the teams like the Rams and Redskins that supposedly are in the QB market, I don’t know. I’m expecting Shanahan to go LT, or maybe Bryant. I see no way we don’t get a couple of really good players this draft

    I agree. Even if you select the 26 best players to go ahead of Dallas, there are still some great, impact guys left. No matter what happens, the Cowboys should end up with a stud.

    Even if all the top tackles and safeties are gone, their selections will have pushed back other good players, such as Odrick, McCourty, Iupati, Pouncey.
