Last night, I did a live chat at Dallas Morning News. The full transcript is right here. Here are a few highlights:

  • If we go offensive line like we should in the first round and knowing Vaccaro will be off the board. Which safety will be available when we pick and who do you think we should take? Thanks!!!

  • You’re right that Vaccaro will likely be gone by the 18th pick. After considering the Will Allen signing and the team’s love of Matt Johnson, I don’t think safety is necessarily as high on their priority list as people think. In the middle rounds, you might see them consider players like Matt Elam, Phillip Thomas, and Shamarko Thomas.

  • So now that a S and LB spot have been filled, is it over 90% that the cowboys will go OL/DL in first 2 rounds, and draft a safety and rb in the mid rounds? I also know there are talks about OG Moore being signed does that change anything?

  • I’d say it’s highly unlikely that the Cowboys make it out of the first two rounds without at least one lineman. There really aren’t as many quality options along the offensive line, especially, as other positions like safety. Even if the Cowboys were really targeting a safety, I think it would be smart to look at those interior linemen in the first (over Vaccaro) simply because of the scarcity at the position.

  • Would the Cowboys take a look at Colt McCoy if he is released by the Browns?
    by Bruce B. 4:08 PM
  • I’m not sure that McCoy necessarily has the arm strength that Jason Garrett would need in this offense. Either way, the Cowboys are likely content with Orton as the backup right now.

  • Is Sheldon Richardson’s stock falling? Have heard much about him lately.
    by Clewis 4:10 PM
  • I was just talking to a friend about this the other day because I really like Richardson. It’s funny because it might seem like his stock is falling, but silence could be a good indication that a lot of teams like a player. As we approach April, teams don’t have too much incentive to tell the truth, so the fact that you’re not hearing his name might be sign that he’s highly-ranked. Richardson should be a top 15 pick.
