Based on new visitors confirmed in today's DMN and from  These are estimates of where I think the players are graded, not where I believe they'll be selected, based on information from a variety of sources.  Your mileage may vary.

It starts to look like a menu.  Look in each round. There's a set of practically every need or want position there.  You see two OL, a DL and a WR in the first.  Earl Thomas isn't here, but we know the Cowboys would love a shot at him, long though it may be. 

In the 2nd round, the same set -- an OL, a DL, two WR and three S.

You know which positions the Cowboys want, but you can also see they're giving themselves options for each need in practically every round.  Want a WR, but you go another route in the 1st?  No problem, there are other options in the 2nd.  And if you go another direction there?  Go to the next round, and so on.

Parting questions:

  1. Do you see any players who don't fit the profiles we've covered the past few weeks?
  2. Look at the glut of 2nd round names.  Which look like high 2nds, the type of guys you consider at 27 if you can't move down, and which are lower 2nds, prospects for pick 59?
  3. See any players here who you do not like?
