A few readers have asked me to take a look at the free agents in 2011, so here you go.  In addition to analyzing the best available players at positions of need for Dallas, I’ve also provided my assessment of which one is most likely to come to Big D, as well as whether the ‘Boys should indeed address the position in free agency or visit it during the draft.

Please note that there may be a few omissions from these free agent rankings.  Some “free agents” are restricted, have already been franchised, etc.  Also, it’s actually quite difficult to obtain a reliable list of free agents.  Some organizations are needlessly secretive about their players’ contracts, and there’s plenty of inaccurate information out there regarding free agent statuses.  If you notice a player who is missing or one who shouldn’t be listed, please notify me in the comments below.

  • Positions of Need Assessed (in order of importance): FS, RT, DE, CB, OG, SS, ILB, FB, RB, OLB
  • Other Positions of Need: K, NT (if Ratliff moves to DE), Returner, C, slot WR

Top Unrestricted Free Agents

FS
1. Michael Huff
2. Eric Weddle (Restricted)
3. Dawan Landry
4. Tanard Jackson
5. Donte Whitner
6. Darren Sharper

Most Likely to Become a Cowboy:  Michael Huff–I really think you’ll see the Cowboys address the free safety spot in free agency.  UCLA’s Rahim Moore (scouting report here) is the consensus top free safety in this draft class, but many scouts have reportedly given him just a third-round grade.  I think he’s a second-round talent and nothing more.  Huff is the top free safety above and, to the best of my knowledge, he’s unrestricted.

Solution:  Free agency–The 2011 safety draft class is simply too weak to find an immediate starter.  If the Cowboys do address the free safety spot during the draft for some reason, options (in addition to Moore) include Oklahoma’s Quinton Carter, UNC’s Deunta Williams, and Temple’s Jaiquawn Jarrett (scouting report here).

RT

Ben Ijalana is versatile and represents great value in the second-round.

1. Ryan Harris
2. Matt Light
3. Tyson Clabo
4. Jared Gaither
5. Khalif Barnes
6. Jermon Bushrod
7. Willie Colon

Most Likely to Become a Cowboy: Ryan Harris–Why not?  Harris is young and his value has plummeted.  He has a tremendous skill set and something to prove, however, so now is the time to sign him.

Solution:  Free agency if value is there, otherwise early rounds of draft–If the Cowboys can’t find a bargain in free agency, they’ll undoubtedly need to address the offensive tackle spot early in the draft.  I’ve already analyzed Villanova’s Ben IjalanaBoston College’s Anthony CastonzoUSC’s Tyron SmithWisconsin’s Gabe Carimi, and Colorado’s Nate Solder.

Of those players, Smith and Castonzo are options in the first-round, while Carimi and Ijalana could fall into the second.  I actually think the latter two players are the best fit at right tackle, and I would be extremely happy with either player in the second-round.

And for those interested (Mom), here are my current offensive tackle rankings (of those listed above):

1. Tyron Smith
2. Ben Ijalana
3. Anthony Castonzo
4. Gabe Carimi
5.  Derek Sherrod
6. Nate Solder (third-round grade)

DE
1. Shaun Ellis
2. Tommie Harris
3. Cullen Jenkins
4. John McCargo
5. Brandon Mebane

Most Likely to Become a Cowboy:  Cullen Jenkins–I’m really stretching it here with this free agent list, as only Ellis and Jenkins have played as a five-technique defensive end in the past.  The other three players have been three-technique players in 4-3 schemes, so they’re quite unlikely to land in Dallas.

Solution:  Early rounds of draft–The draft seems like the obvious arena through which to upgrade the defensive end spot this offseason.  There are plenty of talented linemen who project as 3-4 ends, including probable first-rounders Marcell Dareus (Alabama), Cameron Jordan (Cal), Nick Fairley (Auburn), J.J Watt (Wisconsin), and Adrian Clayborn (Iowa).

Options in round two include Muhammad Wilkerson (Temple) and Cameron Heyward (Ohio State). All would be upgrades over the current Dallas defensive ends.

CB
1. Nnamdi Asomugha
2. Jonathan Joseph
3. Antonio Cromartie
4. Eric Wright
5. William Gay
6. Chris Houston
7. Ike Taylor
8. Chris Carr
9. Richard Marshall
10. Carlos Rogers
11. Will Blackmon
12. Kelly Jennings

Most Likely to Become a Cowboy: Jonathan Joseph–With this year’s cornerback draft class very strong, I don’t see any reason for the Cowboys to sign a middle-tier cornerback in free agency.  Either go big or go home.  The top three cornerbacks on this list are all top-tier guys (with Asomugha obviously in a class by himself).  I don’t see Asomugha as a legit option, unfortunately, because he’s simply going to be too costly.  Don’t forget that Dallas still needs to re-sign Doug Free, perhaps a few other free agents, and their rookies.

Joseph is incredibly underrated and, if he can be had for second-tier money, the Cowboys could find a bargain.

Solution: Sign Joseph if the price is right, otherwise early rounds of draft–I’ve already broken down the games of Nebraska’s Prince AmukamaraMiami’s CB Brandon HarrisLSU’s CB Patrick PetersonTexas’ Aaron Williams, Colorado’s Jimmy Smith, and Utah’s Brandon Burton. As of now, I’d rate those players as follows:

1. Patrick Peterson
2. Brandon Harris
3. Prince Amukamara
4. Jimmy Smith
5. Aaron Williams
6. Brandon Burton

If Peterson drops past the fifth pick, the Cowboys need to look into trading up.  He’s the No. 1 overall player on my board.  I love the upside of Brandon Harris in the second-round, or Burton in the third.

OG
1. Davin Joseph
2. Justin Blalock
3. Harvey Dahl
4. Robert Gallery
5. Richie Incognito
6. Alan Faneca

Most Likely to Become a Cowboy: Davin Joseph–Offensive guard is a difficult position to assess for the ‘Boys.  Kyle Kosier, who I’d rank at No. 3 on this list, is a free agent as well.  The ‘Boys could re-sign him to a short-term deal (which I think is a good idea, as he graded out as the seventh-best Cowboy in 2010 and the top lineman).

Solution: Re-sign Kyle Kosier and/or sign a free agent–Whether the Cowboys re-sign Kosier or pick up a free agent, I think they need to address the position in free agency.  The interior linemen at the top of this year’s draft class are weak (Florida’s Mike Pouncey, TCU’s Marcus Cannon, Baylor’s Danny Watkins, and FSU’s Rodney Hudson all figure to be in the second-round range).  I like Pouncey’s upside and versatility in the second-round and Cannon/Hudson are intriguing if they drop, but none of these guys “wow” me (particularly Watkins).

SS
1. Quintin Mikell
2. Bernard Pollard
3. Atari Bigby
4. Brodney Pool
5. Roman Harper
6. Abram Elam

Most Likely to Be a Cowboy: None–Outside of Mikell, this is a very weak group of strong safeties.  I think Mikell is extremely underrated, but the lack of talent behind him means someone will overpay for his services.  That shouldn’t be Dallas.

Solution:  Re-sign Gerald Sensabaugh, find depth late in draft–Like Kosier, I think Sensabaugh’s 2010 play went unheralded.  He wasn’t incredible, but he yielded just a 57 percent completion rate, 6.95 yards-per-attempt, and one touchdown (all while snagging five interceptions).  You can see all of his numbers in my 2010 safety grades.

Whoever the Cowboys sign, they should probably look for a mid-to-late prospect at the position (assuming they don’t think Danny McCray or Barry Church are the future at strong safety).  Options include Florida’s Ahmad Black, West Virginia’s Robert Sands, Idaho’s Shiloh Keo, and Boise State’s Jeron Johnson.

ILB
1. Paul Posluszny
2. Barrett Ruud
3. Stephen Tulloch
4. Stephen Cooper
5. Takeo Spikes

Most Likely to Be a Cowboy:  Paul Posluszny–The former Penn State linebacker is really the only option for Dallas in free agency.  There’s no reason to sign any of the other aging players when you already have two of the same at the position.

Solution:  Sign Posluszny if the price is right, otherwise mid-to-late rounds of draft–I really like Posluszny and think he would complement Sean Lee quite well inside.  I don’t think he’s likely to land in Dallas by any means, but I’d take a long look if the money isn’t exorbitant.

If the Cowboys look to the draft to upgrade the position, Martez Wilson if by far the best prospect.  He might be available in the second-round and he could potentially play outside linebacker too.  The Cowboys’ more pressing issues make Wilson’s arrival unlikely, however.  Other possibility include UNC’s Quan Sturdivant, Oregon’s Casey Matthews (yuk), LSU’s Kelvin Sheppard, NC State’s Nate Irving, and Michigan State’s Greg Jones.

RB
1. DeAngelo Williams
2. Ahmad Bradshaw
3. Michael Bush
4. Cedric Benson
5. Darren Sproles
6. Ronnie Brown
7. Tim Hightower
8. Joseph Addai
9. Cadillac Williams
10. Ricky Williams
11. Kevin Smith

Most Likely to Become a Cowboy:  None–The Cowboys will likely be in the market for a running back to fill Marion Barber’s shoes (not literally, as it would be difficult to get one’s feet through the concrete. . .thank you, I’ll be here all night).

This free agent list is impressive, but the top players will all be too pricey for the ‘Boys.  Even a guy like Sproles, who could dramatically upgrade the Cowboys’ return game and be an insurance policy for Felix Jones, will probably command more money than Dallas is willing to spend on a position which isn’t really a gaping hole.

**Note: If Sproles’ asking price drops due to the abundance of talented free agent runners, I think he’d be a really nice option for Dallas.  Others will want a bruiser at tailback, but Sproles’ versatility trumps the short-yardage ability of the big boys.  Plus, I think Jones and Tashard Choice are just fine in short-yardage.

And you know I’m not going to just throw an opinion out there without proof. . .

That’s some mighty fine tasting pudding.

Solution: Mid-to-late rounds of draft–I really don’t see the ‘Boys addressing tailback in free agency, but it’s certainly a possibility late in the draft.  Potential draft picks include Syracuse’s Delone Carter, Oklahoma State’s Kendall Hunter, LSU’s Stevan Ridley, Auburn’s Mario Fannin, and my personal favorite, Pitt’s Dion Lewis.  I really like Lewis.

FB
1. Vonta Leach
2. Heath Evans
3. John Kuhn
4. Deon Anderson

Most Likely to Become a Cowboy:  None–Again, I don’t see the Cowboys addressing the backfield through free agency.  Leach is a stud, but he will probably re-sign with Houston.  Meanwhile, Evans and Kuhn aren’t tremendous lead blockers, which is just what the Cowboys need out of a fullback.  Readers know I like Anderson, but his time in Dallas is over.

Solution: Mid-to-late rounds of draft–Options include Stanford’s Owen Marecic, Pitt’s Henry Hynoski, and USC’s Stanley Havili, although it’s just as likely the Cowboys roll with Chris Gronkowski.

OLB
1. Manny Lawson
2. Matt Roth
3. Thomas Howard

Most Likely to Become a Cowboys: None–This isn’t even a question.  Teams simply don’t allow stud 3-4 outside linebackers to hit the open market.

Solution: Mid-to-late rounds of draft–Unlike many other people, I think the Cowboys are just fine at outside linebacker.  Anthony Spencer will rebound (and he wasn’t even as bad in 2010 as people think), and Victor Butler is ready for a bigger role.

Of course, you can never have too many pass-rushers, and draft options include UNC’s Robert Quinn in the first-round (if the team deems his value to great to pass up) or Nevada’s Dontay Moch, Stanford’s Thomas Keiser, UCF’s Bruce Miller, and Fresno State’s Chris Carter in the mid-to-late rounds.

Overall Free Agency/Draft Plan

The Cowboys desperately need to find a starting free safety in free agency.  In my opinion, no rookie safety is worthy of starting.  There are also some quality offensive tackles on the market, but the abundance of talented players at that position who are projected to go in the late-first or early-second make signing a free agent less likely.

I don’t see the Cowboys signing a defensive end in free agency, as the draft is stacked with 3-4 end prospects.  Cornerback is a tricky position, but I think you’ll see the Cowboys address that spot via the draft as well.

At guard and strong safety, the Cowboys’ best options appear to already be on the squad.  Kyle Kosier and Gerald Sensabaugh won’t demand top dollar and are underrated players, according to my film study.

The inside linebacker, tailback, fullback, and outside linebacker spots could all be upgraded, but they aren’t pressing issues.  It’s possible the Cowboys will look to find value in free agency with a player like Paul Posluszny, but all four of these positions are probably only options in the middle or late rounds of the draft.

Dream Upgrades/Roster Moves (Realistically)

  • FS- Michael Huff
  • RT- Ben Ijalana (Villanova)/Gabe Carimi (Wisconsin) — Second-round
  • DE- Marcell Dareus (Alabama)/Cameron Jordan (Cal) — First-round

  • OLB- Steven Friday (Virginia Tech) — Seventh-round
  • K- Kris Brown/David Buehler duo
  • NT- Ratliff likely to stay put
  • Returner- Jeremy Kerley (TCU) — Sixth-round
  • C- Develop Phil Costa
  • Slot WR- Jeremy Kerley (TCU) — Sixth-round

  1. Tyrone Jenkins says:

    First off, as you probably already know from previous posts, I strongly think the greatest position of need for the Cowboys going into this season is by FAR the position of RT. FS is a need but I’ll take Ball back at FS before I take Colombo (or anyone else on the current roster as a replacement) back at RT.

    Second, does your Mom really want to know your draft OT and DE rankings? If so, good on her for that one…a Cowboys loving (and apparently wanting to be well informed) mom!!!

    Third, I realize I’m in the minority but I don’t think CB is as much of a need as everyone else seems to think. I think Jenkins will be better primarily because the D line will improve and that he’s embarrased (or at least should be) about his play last year. Also, I think the Boys, outside of Nnamdi or Peterson, should give the guys on the roster (McCann, AOA and possibly even Ball) as shot at CB before siging a FA.

    Agree w/ you about Posluzny and Sproles. Posluzny is a SOLID ILB – I would sign him if he’s not too expensive (he probably will be though). Sproles is also a good option for special teams (I never really like using starters as return men).

    P.S. Honestly, did you sleep w/ Mont Seventeen’s girlfriend or something – that guy seems to totally dislike you…

  2. Rick says:

    Aaron Williams in the 3rd? Is that realistic? Not criticizing you, I’ve just heard a lot of different things about the guy, but “3rd rounder” hasn’t been one of them.

    Otherwise, I like your imaginary offseason. I have to wonder, though, who are you cutting to make it work out financially?

  3. Vince_Grey says:

    Whatever position(s) we go after in free agency, I say spend wisely. High dollar FA’s are almost always a huge waste of money.

    Also, just because no safeties are rated as high picks doesn’t mean they can’t play. Lot’s of DB’s picked in the later rounds, and even undrafted FA’s, become good players in the NFL all the time.

    In fact, I’m glad there’s not a supposed superstar safety available for us, because then we’d be tempted to pick him, and picking DB’s in the top 10 is a bad call for Dallas. And most other teams, for that matter.

  4. RT/FS are undoubtedly 1 and 2. Both need upgrades. We know Ball will be replaced, but don’t you have an awful feeling Colombo will still be on this team in September? If that happens, I can tell you now I will go off on Garrett.

    And unfortunately, Mom does NOT know draft rankings.

    I agree with your thoughts on CB. Would you rate the position even lower than I have?

    No, I haven’t slept with Mont’s girlfriend yet.

  5. Rick–That’s certainly the least likely of the options above, but crazier things have happened. I never thought AOA or Bruce Campbell would drop into the fourth last year. In recent years, the second-fourth rounds have gotten a bit crazy. I DON’T think Williams will drop into the third, but I do think there is a slight chance.

    Vince–No doubt about the later-round picks and undrafted guys, but we do have to play the percentages. If the top safety on the Cowboys’ board is a third-round talent, they MUST sign a free agent. I have hunch they’re thinking the same.

  6. Tyrone Jenkins says:

    I would actually put ILB ahead of CB in that I rate McCann and AOA’s ability to play CB better than I rate Kenwin Cummings and Williams playing ILB (I’m not high on Lee but he might turn out to be adequate after all).

    My list, personnally, is RT, FS, DE, ILB, OG, FB, CB, RB. RT and FS are the 2 positions that REQUIRE somone different than the person last year. DE requires a resigning of someone from last year AND to be addressed via FA or the draft. ILB and OG have people who can start at their positions (if Kosier is resigned) but Davis starting is undesirable. A substitute of a FA or draft pick may or may not be an upgrade this year (Ijalana could easily work himself into a starting RG position by the end of the year) but will most likely end up being a tremendous upgrade next year and on into th future. FB, CB and RB have starters that might be there for the next 3-5 years so anyone who is drafted needs to be stellar at special teams (return man or tackling or both). Marecic and Haivi come to mind as you pointed out. Of course, I would take Vontae Leach in a minute.

    OLB is NOT a position of need IMO. If you compare Spencer’s stats from this past year w/ the stats of Greg Ellis at the same point in his career, the #s are eerily similar. Spencer is still an adequate player (he’s not stellar but also not poor either). His potential appears to be that he’ll be better than average or even a quite solid player (I doubt he’ll ever really be elite or very poor).

    Just my opinion…

    Just curious but what are your thoughts on trading up to 6th w/ the Browns by offering a WR (which they desperately need) or Martellus Bennet (remember, John Phillips is coming back from IR) or possibly Spears (sign and trade) if Peterson is still on the board at that point?

  7. Mark Watkins says:

    Great insight as usual Jonathan. I’ve been trying to wrap my head around what the Boys might do. It’s difficult with so many factors involved, especially salary cap considerations, but this definitely helps. I mostly hope that they get a stud DE in the first round and a starting quality RT in the second. Then I think that things have a chance of falling into place for them (maybe pick up a decent CB in FA). I just wonder if they did that whether they would put Newman in the slot and sit Scandrick most of the time. Or whether they would sit Jenkins. Or maybe even trade one of them (?) I’m also very interested to see how Ryan’s influence might play a part in their decision making on defense.

  8. Tyrone–That’s not bad thinking on the ILB/CB comparison. The question is whether the importance of CBs outweighs that of ILBs enough to make up for the AOA/McCann to Cummings/Williams disparity.

    BTW, I just did my first 32-team mock (to be posted tomorrow) and, unfortunately, I just don’t see an OT dropping to the second-round. I even have Ijalana in the mid-20s. IMO, the Cowboys MUST select an OT in the first-round if they don’t sign a free agent.

    As far as your trade scenario…I think Cleveland is the team with whom the Cowboys will need to trade if PP falls, but I don’t see a player being involved in the deal. They aren’t going to want one of our WRs (well, they’d want two, but that’s not happening), and I’m assuming they’d want MORE than just Bennett. I wouldn’t give up Bennett AND a pick to move up to 6, even for PP.

  9. Mark–As I told Tyrone, I don’t see a top RT dropping into the second anymore. I REALLY want Ijalana, but I think he’s a first-round guy. Meanwhile, you might be able to get a guy like Wilkerson, Nevis, etc. in the second. IMO, the ‘Boys MUST secure a RT in the first-round if they don’t address the position in free agency.

    As far as the CBs, Newman won’t be traded because no one will take his contract, and there’s no way Jenkins gets benched. I don’t think Newman will play the slot ahead of Scandrick, which means if the Cowboys do secure a top CB like PP, Newman will probably be released.

  10. Vince_Grey says:

    Just to be clear, I’m not saying don’t sign any free agents. I’m saying don’t get stupid about it and vastly over-pay, like the Skin’s just did with O.J. Atogwe.

    Take a note from the way the Patriots attack free agency. They wait until all the free-spending idiots (Daniel Snyder) clear out, and then (usually) get very good value for their dollar.

  11. Jonny Danger says:

    I know we need a RT and I have disliked Colombo for quite some time. After last year I don’t want him anywhere near this team. Anyways I truly hope we sign a FA RT because I hate drafting linemen in the first its so boring. I’m really keen on Carimi just enjoy his play style and wouldn’t mind trading down for him however. I still love the thought of picking up Dareus and Phil Taylor in the first two rounds but I’m sure that’s just a dream now. Hell I don’t know what I want. I’m sure whatever we choose ill be saying “This guy is awesome so glad we got him!” just because I love my Cowboys and support all players till they end up like barber and colombo and just need to get the F out of town.

  12. JJ says:

    JB-

    I’m late to this party and was one of those that was interested in this assessment. I will not replay the solid job you have done here Jonathan but I think the formula is clear to me (and really it’s obvious as many other readers have stated as much):

    Don’t spend big on Free Agents who are headed toward or are on the wrong side of 30.

    Do look at young players with talent are finishing their first contracts and just need a change of venue and could be sleepers.

    Find starters in the draft early.

    Don’t even step on the field if FS, RT and DE have not been improved considerably.

    Have a plan for OG, SS, and depth at ILB.

    Decide if your third RB, 4th WR and starting FB are on the roster today.

    Finally, while I like Newman and what he has done for the Cowboys, I think the Cowboys are playing with fire to assume Newman comes back as a playmaker. He’s oft injured. Never been a big interception player. His speed has been his strength by playing the smaller, quick WRs over the years toe to toe but, sadly, age and injury are taking its toll. I really think he would make for a great luxury for depth at CB with a different contract.

  13. Tyrone Jenkins says:

    Nice JJ, I need to find a way to be more succint like you. Even I get bored/distracted after reading my own lengthy posts sometimes…

  14. Jonny–I know this site is suppose to be “intellectual,” but you described a free agent right tackle as a “FART” haha. That’s actually a perfect way to describe Colombo. But your dream of Dareus/Taylor isn’t going to happen, unless the Cowboys trade back into the first-round. Someone will take a chance of Taylor’s weight for the upside.

  15. JJ–That’s pretty much the exact plan I would use if I was running the Cowboys. I haven’t brought up too much about Newman, but I don’t want to see him cut. I REALLY hope he’s willing to restructure his deal to remain in Dallas, because as you point out, that’s a hell of a luxury.

  16. Jonny Danger says:

    Jonathan – Haha yes I suppose I did. This site is very intellectual and I can’t go anywhere else now that I have been here, however humor and insight such as Colombo being a FART is always welcome. That had me laughing after you pointed that out. Yes Colombo is exactly that. I used to like the guy thought he had the ability to be a mauler and strong leader but he was just an embarrassment last season and I’m done with him. He reminded me of a young kid with the last name Demooth. He was a 3rd string ginger at right tackle for my football teams I played on from peewee to high school and Lord forgive me but I hated that freaking kid. I even beat the poor kid up one practice out of frustration. I actually think Demooth, a chubby little ginger kid from a small town, might have shown more heart and ability then colombo last season.

  17. JJ says:

    Tyrone, for what it’s worth, I enjoy reading your posts. We’ll have so much more to discuss when we can get to some real action. When Tiki Barber wanting to come back to the NFL is a top story, well, you get the idea…

  18. Tyrone Jenkins says:

    I’m just glad to have stumbled upon a blog where the authors of the articles can back up their opinion w/ something quantifiable and the bloggers make meaningful inputs that lead me to deeper thought…so, as much as I appreciate your words, I gotta send some love back your way as well. Even Mont, in his own way, offers quite a bit of thought producing commentary…

    Do you think Tiki would be good on the Boys special teams unit? (that is a joke)

  19. johncoleman says:

    I would definitely agree with the FS assessment and think Huff is highly likely to be a Cowboy. I don’t see anyone in the draft that can come in and start day 1.

    We can wait and grab Kenny Tate next season.

    Carimi or Ijalana would be ok with me as well.

    IMO SS is a definite draft position.

    I would still think a DE is priority #1 as far as a high 1st rd pick. After watching a little more tape I would have to reconsider my evaluation of JJ Watt. #9 might be a little high for him though. He was pretty much as good as any with his overall combine results as well.

    I’m still leery of Amukamara for some reason. I would say if Peterson falls go get him. Then it’s Harris for me. Amukamara has incredibly short arms for a CB.

    I also still like DeAndre McDaniel, Marcus Gilchrist, and Chris Culliver. Culliver would be an asset as a return man as well.

  20. Jonny–Haha appreciate the kind words. No need to laugh at the horrible jokes..I throw them in when I’m in the mood and I realize I am the only one who thinks they’re funny..not too savvy of a business decision I suppose.

    JC–I would say SS should be a draft spot as well, but I just don’t like any of the prospects at the position. I had Jeron Johnson going to Dallas in my first mock, but it isn’t as if he’s a guy I’d be dead-set on. I actually hope Sensy can’t find a long-term deal because I’d love to have him back in Dallas for a year. Do Church/McCray have the potential for starting ability? I’m not certain of that.
