Mel Kiper's 4 round prediction


On ESPN Insider, Mel Kiper Jr. has released a four round mock which predicts how he thinks each NFL team will draft next weekend.  I have Insider so I will post his predictions for Dallas.  Insider isn't free and I don't know how to link articles so I won't try.  Here it is in all its glory:

 

Dallas Cowboys

Top Needs:  LT, FS, OG, WR, PK, ILB, CB

First Round (27):  OT Charles Brown

Second Round (59):  S Nate Allen

Third Round (90):  CB Myron Lewis

Fourth Round (125):  LB O'Brien Schofield

Summary:  Brown isn't a flashy pick, but he's the necessary pick.  The Cowboys have the weapons on offense, but if the left side of that line becomes a crater, they can't reach their potential.  As Brown develops, I think he could step in for Doug Free.  A former tight end, Brown has the upside to be there for years to come.  Allen is a necessary addition to the safety position.  I think even if Taylor Mays is still on the board, Dallas should wait for Allen or a guy like Major Wright or Morgan Burnett.  The gap isn't big enough to skip the tackle necessity.  Lewis adds some skill at CB (Terence Newman will be 32 this year) and Schofield led the nation in TFL at times last year.  He's constantly in the backfield.

 

There it is.  What do ya'll think?  Would you be happy if this was how the draft broke down next weekend?
