2011 NFL Draft (Day 2 & 3)

Bob Sturm breaks down day one of the Cowboys draft, along with a preview what to expect on day 2 for da 'Boys...

...

So, you rally and get ready for #40 and #71 today.

Key needs remain at DB (corner and safety), DL (DE or NT), and Guard. You could also make the case for RB, ILB, or 3rd WR.

The Cowboys have the 8th pick today, and with a run on QB's expected with Andy Dalton and Colin Kaepernick projected to go in the 30's, there is every reason to believe the Cowboys will be quite pleased with what falls to them at #40. However, if Aaron Williams from Texas (thought to be maybe the best corner/safety on the board) is a rare bird and you have him rated well above the others, you might want to pair #40 and say, #143, to trade up and get him.

I think we should keep an eye on DL or DB at #40 and assume that they would try to get a Guard, RB, or Safety at #71.

I do want to stress, though, that you start to slide into best player available. The contracts are reasonable and if Martez Wilson or Mason Foster are legit inside LB ideas, then you cover yourself for Bradie James in 2012, even though they would not start right away.
