Who Should The Boys Take With The 9th Pick In The 2011 Draft?

Last year the Cowboys struggled in every department except the passing game. Well the passing game struggled too when you consider half the interceptions thrown came off the hands of our own receivers. No one could stay healthy, there's a hole in the defense, and our offensive line couldn't block a high school front four. A made a list of the top 50 prospects (of course the top 8 will probably be off the board) which player will help the Cowboys win more than 6 games next year? So if your Jerry Jones or Jason Garrett, who do you take with the 9th pick in the draft.? Offense or Defense? Why?
