I think he's one of a kind, he's one of the better DT's i've seen in a very long time coming out of the draft. I'd be estatic if we drafted him. The only problem conserning me is him being able to stay healthy.

How do you think the huge contract we gave Kelly will effect our draft strategy? His contract along with the contracts of Burgess and Sands make this a pretty expensive D-line already (especially for their talent level). I think DT is still a big need but if we draft DT/DE with the 4th pick it would just make our D-line ridiculously expensive.

I could see us still going after Ellis now with Kelly signed. Dorsey, not so much. I really have no idea what our draft strategy is. Apparently we are going after Shaun Rogers and Bernard Berrian in FA as well. Al must have a piggy bank stashed away somewhere. And if had to choose between Berrian and Rogers I would take Berrian in a heartbeat.....we'd have arguably the best deep route QB-WR combo in the league and Al would be in heaven.

Between Curry's dropped balls and Porter having on in off games. We wouldn't be to bad with the exception of Berrian. I'd take Rodgers because he would eliminate the idea of drafting a Dt when we could either trade down and get more draft picks or take a tweener DE we can take a chance on. But our WR core right now is probably the poorest in the league right now so I might take Berrian, it's almost like a coin flip right now.

We already didn't have a 3rd rounder and now with the D. Hall trade we have no 2nd, so what does this mean for our draft strategy?

Before the trade I was hoping for DE in the 1st and LT in the 2nd, but now that scenario is gone. I'm really hoping we trade our 1st to make up for the lack of picks we have and also to avoid paying the #4 pick a ton of money (especially considering we have already spent a boatload).

something tells me AL has something up his sleeve. I sense AL and Jerry have some kind of trade in the works...

Even if we traded our first for both of Dallas's 1 rounder and their third. I'd be cool with that. If we don't I'd look at somebody to stop the run. I still like Golhston.

IF we get Hall, do you think our draft picks will change? We look like were trading a 2nd for him, so we probably have to draft dline in the 1st instead of DMAC

It makes me want to trade down even more, but I doubt Al will let something like that happen.

If Jerry Jones wants DMAC that bad then we can surly make a deal with them to trade down for more picks.

We're gonna get Chris Long or Vernon Gholston.
No doubt in my mind.
We are not gonna trade down.
Al Davis will never allow it(Sad but true).
