Here is the third in a series of position review for the upcoming draft. Each week, I will submit another position leading up to the draft. I will review the perceived top players at the position in alphabetic order. This assumes that the team has no changes to the current roster either via cut or FA acquisition (although, it's fun to talk about that!)
so, this week, we go with another need of the Cowboys, Defensive Backs, specifically Safety (but the better CB's are listed as well). I took out the probability as I don't see any of them taking in the first round (but you never know).
Elam, Matt SS, Florida Tale of the Tape: 5'10", 202, Jr Review: Athletic and physical; one of the top Strong Safeties in the class Likely landing spot: Late 1st to 2nd
Jefferson, Tony FS, Oklahoma Tale of the Tape: 5'11", 212, Jr Review: Not as tall as some of the other good free safeties in the draft; physical and can play either safety position Likely landing spot: 3rd round; possible spot for dallas if they go OL/DL with first two picks
Milliner, Dee CB, Alabama Tale of the Tape: 6'1", 198, Jr Review: Possible top CB drafted; should go before the Cowboys pick, although it is not likely they pick a CB early; good size, ball hawk type, strong tackler Likely landing spot: Top 10
Rambo, Bacarri FS, Georgia Tale of the Tape: 6'0", 210, rSr Review: Aggressive, good size Likely landing spot: 3rdround, another possible Safety around when the Cowboys pick in the 3rd
Reid, Eric FS, LSU Tale of the Tape: 6'2", 212, Jr Review: Is this guy the real deal or a product of having very good CB's around him? Has the size and athleticism to be a starter in his first year; aggressive Likely landing spot: 2nd round, could be there when the cowboys pick in the 2nd
Rhodes, Xavier CB, Florida St Tale of the Tape: 6'1", 217, rJr Review: Physical, strong with long arms; likely the 2nd best CB in the draft Likely landing spot: Top 20
Thomas, Phillip FS, Fresno St Tale of the Tape: 6'1", 215, rSr Review: Athletic, good size, play-making ability Likely landing spot: 2nd round (I could see him being there in the 2nd for Dallas)
Vaccaro, Kenny FS, Texas Tale of the Tape: 6'1", 218, Sr Review: The top safety in the draft; he has the entire package; strong tackler who likes to hit and play on the ball; if he is still around at #18, the Cowboys could pick him despite their other needs Likely landing spot: Top 10 - 15
Please no DB in the 1st or 2nd. We need OL and DL in the worst way. But in the 3rd I wouldn't mind Thomas or Rambo if 1 of them is available. If not get another OL or DL. And maybe TJ McDonald will be there in the 4th.
