Crazy Ray will have a public memorial sometime this week. I hope the Cowboys organization participates in a meaningful way.

The family of "Crazy Ray" is planning a public memorial later this week. But details aren't known yet.

Wilford "Crazy Ray" Jones was known as the unofficial mascot of the Dallas Cowboys - missing just three games in 47 years.

"Crazy Ray's" funeral will be private. He'll be buried in one of his trademark uniforms.

Someone help me out - am I hallucinating or is this really Clark Judge's mock draft?

22. Dallas Cowboys LaRon Landry, S, LSU
This is probably too low for Landry, who could be a top 15-choice. All I know is he doesn't get past the Cowboys.

Reggie Nelson's stock is supposedly on the rise.

Reggie Nelson, S, Florida: News of Nelson's timed speed during Florida's Pro Day swept through the scouting community almost as fast as the safety's 4.35 showing in the 40-yard dash. After a somewhat pedestrian performance at the Combine, including electronic times of 4.56 and 4.60, questions were starting to arise about Nelson's overall athleticism. But he stood out not only with his straight-line speed during his Pro Day, but his fluidity throughout the day's drills also answered scouts' questions. With his showing in Gainesville, Nelson likely cemented his status as the draft's No. 2 safety behind LSU's LaRon Landry, a likely top 10 pick.

From the same article, a guy Dallas is supposedly visiting with before the draft, see BTB article here, also is rising on NFL boards.

Melvin Bullitt, S, Texas A&M: Despite flashing at the East-West Shrine Game, Bullitt wasn't invited to the Combine. He showed with a noteworthy performance at Texas A&M's March 3 workout that he should have been. After weighing in at 6-1, 201 pounds, Bullitt, viewed as a physical in-the-box safety, showed surprising overall athleticism. He was timed at a 4.48 in the 40-yard dash and his 40'6" vertical jump and 3.97 second shuttle, designed to show explosiveness and quickness, are among the elite results of the early Pro Day sessions.

The DMN blog would like to remind you that today is the one-year anniversary of the Terrell Owens signing.
