Trading up worked so well yesterday, I say we do it again. We can argue that Dez will be a bust or not but there are a few things that can not be denied. We traded up at exactly the last possible chance to get him, I strongly believe the Ravens would have taken him. He is the 10th ranked player on Gosselin's incredibly accurate top 100. We still have 6 picks, and we paid the equivalent of a mid 5th. Arguably we got the best pick in our division. According to Gosselin's 100 Trent Williams ranked 6th, Bryant was ranked 10th, Brandon Graham was ranked 16th, and JPP was ranked 18th.
So after the first day we are looking good and there are alot of players available who are excellent value and picks. Issue is that there are glaring needs at S and OL. We absolutely need to get value with our limited picks but at the same time we need to fill those holes. Thankfully value can be found at those positions. I will list some players available at these position along with Gosselin's ranking of them, who would be excellent additions.
Saffold OT 30th
Mays FS 33rd
Allen FS 39th
Cook DB 43rd
Brown OT 44th
These are the most interesting names at the top of the Goose's rankings, but some other players of interest who Gosselin does not think so highly of are also available. Players like Burnett (FS ranked 71st), John Asamoah (G, 54th), Bruce Campbell (OT, 60th), and Ducasse (OT, 67th) are also available. These players need to be targets on Dallas' board and they should take the exact same approach they did yesterday. Keep an eye on them and trade up to get them as soon as it appears they could disappear. IMO we can only sit and wait at 59 if more than one is available. Otherwise we run the risk of having to reach or missing out on players at a position of need.
