Pick #22, I suspect will be used to select the best of several CB's with mid-first round value left on the board. As for pick #28, unless no WR has yet come off the board, I do not see any real value being there at that position. I think that if there are no other players that the Cowboys feel are worthy of that selection who will help to fill a need, trading back is the proper move. I would feel better about selecting a WR in the second round, as well as picking up an extra first day pick or player in compensation for the trade. I still feel that WR and RB are positions of need, but there is no need to reach at either position. WR Limas Sweed would be a nice selection early in the second (if the Cowboys can trade out of the #28 spot), and RB Jammal Charles or Chris Johnson should be available late in the second. However, if the Cowboys have the opprotunity to select S Kenny Phillips in the second round, they should jump at the chance, IMO, and find their complimentary speed back in the third.

2nd Rd(from ATL)--S K. Phillips, Miami-Fla.

2nd Rd--WR J. Hardy, Indiana

3rd Rd(from ATL)--RB C. Johnson, E. Carolina

3rd Rd--QB J.D. Booty, USC

4th Rd--best available on draft board

5th Rd--best available on draft board

This addresses needs at CB, S, WR, RB, and KR/PR, while getting "appropriate value" at the proper time in the draft.
