This is decent in theory. Only time will tell how good of signing this is. Same with Porter.

I think it's looking like
1. DT Sharrif Floyd of Florida or OT Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M

3. OL Kyle Long Oregon

4. SAF Barccari Rambo Georgia

6a. DE Stansly Maponga TCU or DT Aaron Tipoti California

6b. LB Jonathan Stewart Texas A&M

6c. TE Levine Toilolo Stanford

7. RB George Winn Cincinnati

I saw the video someone posted on Rambo, he looks decent. Granted those were the highlights and hard to discredit anyone on highlights. If people aren't talking about him, why????

He's ranked fairly low among all the safeties like in the top of the bottom half. He'll probably be one of those guys that gets picked up in a late round and ends up starting and makes critics say "Wow where did this guy come from?"

Its just really hard to say who he will draft because it seems like he will go more for whoever has the best overall value among the available rather than actually filling a need. But surely he's aware that we need valuable players that will fill a need too.

Rambo got caught with weed once or twice, but has been clean for over a year. That, and if he ran 1/10th of a second faster in his 40 he likely would have been a 1st rounder. He could be one heck of a steal.

If they have the opportunity to get a stud o-line man than they can't pass it up. The tackle spot is the most important part in helping a qb have success. I love the moves the gm made at corner and the cap space they will have next year. He's on the right track. But this draft is HUGE for them to get right.

Do you think after this fresh start, oak should even take a risk on brining in guys with possible character issues?

If you really think about it, we haven't made very many offensive moves so if Joeckell or Fisher becomes available, to us I think it would be wise to take one of them. Joeckell is my preference but I'd take Fisher too or Lane Johnson from OU.

Reggie McKenzie even said that he doesn't care what the mock drafts say, he's taking the best player available.

If Rolando McClain has taught us anything, it's that you can never really tell how guys are gonna turn out. Rolo had no issues that i can think of in college, and gave up pretty often then threw temper tantrums like a 3 year old. And i clearly don't know Bacarri Rambo personally, but i really like his talent and the fact that his off the field stuff happened basically a year ago and he's not had anything since doesn't worry me very much. Not nearly enough worry for me to disregard this guys talent(both physical and mental).

Besides, who didn't smoke a little weed in college?

I had to quit smoking weed just for financial aid. But I do see your point. Gallery & McClain both were scouted as can't miss picks, but neither panned out well for us. Granted Gallery never got in trouble, but still he wasn't the difference maker we expected him to be. Even worse go back to the late 90s & early 2000s with Darrell Russell who became the pro bowler that he was expected to be before his trouble began

Good luck with Jenkins. He never stays healthy. A wasted pick by Dallas!

Sean Lee and Tyron Smith are Dallas's only legit picks in recent years. Dez Bryant would be a stud if he would just grow up.

I'm a cowboy fan once or twice a year...When texas plays OK St and if they play Wyoming.

Dez Bryant IS a stud. He had over 1000 In 8 games. I think he is officially a top WR. And I hate the cowgirls

If he can keep that up this year, he'll be an official stud in my book. A player can easily have one good year (or half a year in his case) but then turn back into scum the next. He did show signs of growing up late last year so he just might do that.

Yeah your right. His attitude still might be piss poor, but the guy has limitless talent
