A lot depends on their internal evaluations, which we do not have access to...My point is, do they really think Henry can play S or is he a CB. If he can play S, I really like what Houston, the CB, did at the combine. If Henry stays at CB, I don't see a CB. Reggie Nelson is a possibility, but how do they feel about Watkins internally?
How highly do they regard Procter? Can he step into Rivera's place?
They really don't have a glaring need, except for G & S. Can they fill those internally? Jerry's recent comments have lead us to believe he's not going to break the bank in FA. I think Leonard Davis would be a good pickup if his price is reasonable. I think if you plug him into this line (w/ Columbo, BTW), they would be very strong. With Procter as the next Guard into the game, that would give them 6 pretty solid offensive linemen. I think you pick up a C/G type in the latter rounds and be happy going into camp with that.
I think you have to draft a DB in the first two rounds. Depending on what happens with Henry, tells you what direction to go there. I think a first dayer at DB and you're set there assuming you bring back your current backups.
I think we still need an impact OLB. I did not feel this way a few weeks ago, but I'm not real confident that Ellis will come back 100% immediately. Also, I think Carpenter will be better suited in the long run as the weakside LB. I've heard the Spencer kid out of Purdue could be a possible pick of the Cowboys. He is a good pass rusher that may be pushed down in the draft because of some real beasts at the DE position.
I would not trade anyone.
A high priority is back-up QB. I would hope that Bledsoe would return, but I suspect he will not. I like a guy like Tim Rattay. Huard is going to be too expensive, I think. Rattay or Kerry Collins would be solid guys.
I think that's what I would do: Leonard Davis at G & Rattay at QB; resign all my current FA's & RFA's.
Then go into the draft wanting a DB, OLB & WR/G/C in the first three rounds.
