The Valley Ranch Review: For now, the Cowboys are Loaded at RB

The Cowboys definitely look to be loaded at running back for '09. That doesn't mean a part of their talented trio will be trade bait come this draft weekend, does it?

The Star-Telegram's  Clarence Hill suggests that it may be prudent for Dallas to make a deal for a draft pick.

There is certainly nothing wrong with listening if you can parlay a former fourth-round pick (Tashard Choice) into possibly a third- or even a second-rounder.

The guys at on that idea.

Nick Eatman:

As for Choice, he just might be the most complete running back of the trio. He's strong and powerful inside, but has the speed to rip off some long runs. Just how many carries he gets this season will be an interesting situation for the coaching staff.

Josh Ellis:

I say no. I realize Choice came relatively cheap as a fourth-rounder last year, and he's behind Marion Barber and Felix Jones on the depth chart, but I really do think he could end up being the best player of the three. He might be the only guy the Cowboys have capable of being an every-down back, and in fact that's what he was at the end of last season, and toe injuries knocked Jones and Barber out of the lineup.

On Wednesday, the Cowboys will be scouting Rice tight end, James Casey. The private workout will be held in Houston. Casey is considered a hybrid player who can be utilized as a QB in a Wildcat offense.

FoxSports puts Dallas on the clock and asks Todd Archer about the Cowboys' needs going into the draft.

Here are some draft-day memories of five current Cowboys.

Mike Jenkins has switched his jersey from #31 to #21.

On Monday, Tony Romo launched yet another come-from-behind victory by winning the Will County Amateur Golf Championship in Crete, Illinois. And then, to celebrate his birthday on Tuesday, #9 won the Adams Golf Pro Scratch Championship tournament run by the N. Texas PGA.

Hat Tip to Wmillion for his post.

There are nine finalists for this year's Madden cover. Demarcus Ware is one of them. Although it would be awesome to have a Cowboy recognized, I'd rather pass. Brandon Jacobs is one of the other finalists...he, he.

Reminder - The BTB fundraiser is still going on and we'll be giving away the Triplets Lithograph to someone who has donated. It's a random drawing so get your name in the hat soon, by early next week, we'll be doing the drawing. BTB appreciates your support!
