Fourth Round Update

New, comments

Some notes on the direction of the fourth round:

  • The Eagles open day two by selecting Iowa FS Sean Considine at pick 102.

  • The incredible run on CBs continues, with Cleveland selecting OU CB Antonio Perkins and Miami taking Travis Daniels of LSU. Cornerbacks were -- by far -- the most selected players on day one.

  • Tennessee selects Virginia Tech CB/S Vincent Fuller one pick ahead of the Cowboys.

  • Dallas selects U. of Minnesota RB Marion Barber III with pick 109.
  • This is another board value pick. Barber is not outstanding at anything, but is good at everything. He's big enough to block. He's got the speed to get outside and he's got good hands. This looks like another low-risk pick.

  • Dallas might have to look for a safety elsewhere. Only two were selected on day one, but five have been taken so far in round four. In addition to Considine and Fuller, Marviel Underwood, Jerome Carter and Kerry Rhodes have been selected.
  • Dallas moves into the late fourth round by trading with the Eagles and acquires Virginia DE Chris Canty.
  • The stocking of the Dallas defensive front seven continues. Canty is another huge man who can play DE in a 3-4 or in a 4-3. He is in the Parcells' "planet" mode. He's taller than Marcus Spears, at 6'7", but lighter at 280. This is a talented guy who is coming off an ACL tear in early '04. He might not be healthy enough for training camp but could be a real talent long term.

    Dallas moved up roughly a dozen spots to get Canty. The Cowboys also gained a 2006 sixth rounder from the Eagles. In exchange, Philadelphia gets Dallas' fourth round pick in 2006.

    It's time to run that errand. Canty was taken with pick 132. Dallas will not pick again until spot 208.
