Cowboys draft board nearing completion

I saw this post over at the Boys Blog stating that a team source indicated that the Cowboys scouting department have given 21 players a first round grade for next months draft. That means unless all the teams that draft ahead of the Cowboys have the same 21 players on their boards, which is highly unlikely, the Cowboys are assured of getting a player which they grade as a first rounder.

A source told me this morning that the Cowboys have 21 players on their board with first round grades.

The team picks 22nd.

That’s no reason to panic. As I’ve said time and again, every team has a different board. What are the odds that the 21 players Dallas has rated as blue chippers will go exactly in slots 1 through 21? They have to be very high. If just one team ahead of Dallas takes a player the team has as a high second the Cowboys will have first round value waiting for them when they pick.

And if seven such players go that high, the Cowboys could find first round talent at both of their first round spots.

Any guesses on the identity of the Talented 21?

I know you guys will offer your 21, so here's mine.
