dallas/atlanta trade


Recommended Posts

okay, so i've seen a lot of you in your mock drafts having us trade our 1st round pick to dallas so that they can draft mcfadden. i'm not confident we'll be picking high enough to have a shot at mcfadden, who should be a top 3 pick, but ... you never know.

here's my question for all you mockers, though: if we were to pull off a trade like this, don't you think we should try to get marion barber from dallas in the trade? if they're getting mcfadden, why would they still need jones and barber? and, to me, barber seems like the perfect back for petrino's offense - and he'd be a great 1-2 punch with norwood.

anyway, just something i'd been wondering about.

no. and dallas doesnt need mcfadden. they're ******** if they get rid of marion barber. they could stand to spend a first round pick on a corner, a 1-gap dt, and a wr. they have needs.

you must not watch any tv, numerous people have said jj is salivating at the chance to get dm. marion isnt an every down back man & julius jones isnt going to get a new deal.

& to the dude earlier who said he doesnt see us picking that higher, you must not have seen us play this yr.

yea jerry jones wants him bad being that he's an arkansas boy. in all honesty who wouldn't want him. too bad we don't have an o-line good enough to block for him

yeah... because you know how jerry jones just gobbles up arkansas razorbacks....

the dallas cowboys have drafted 1 razorback in team history... jerry dossey.... in 1970.... like 18 years before jerry jones bought the cowboys.... blink.gif

anf if we've learned anything from the dallas cowboys, is that they arent going to sacrifice the future of their ball club on 1 player. hershal walker trade ring a bell?

they have no need for darren mcfadden, and they're not going to be in a position to draft him. just because some moronic maw on tv lets some idiocy, about jerry jones wanting mcfadden because he went to arkansas, dribble out of his mouth does not make it so.

i've seen us play this year, but the scary thing is there are teams out there that are playing much much worse than we are. miami, sf, possibly oakland, st louis, nyj, cinci.

we are tied right now with oakland, sf, and cinci. that means there are three teams worse than us right now, and three more teams tied with us.

nyj will probably need a qb as the pennington project should be over this year, miami needs a qb which they should've gotten last year. that means, the potential of qb's falling in the first few picks is very likely making it possible for mcfadden to fall out of the top five. st louis might go with mcfadden, although bulger has been so beat to ###### this year with orlando pace going down for the season, they might be looking qb and/or ot

of course, this is pure speculation.

the jets won't need a qb if clemens can play at a solid level. miami also has their qb in john beck, so they won't be taking one this year.

the rams wont get him. they have steven jackson and drafted brian leonard last year i think in the 2nd round. they desperately need o-line

cowboys targeting darren mcfadden in the 2008 nfl draft

by robert bryant

nfl draft dog

quote:

the cowboys possess two first round draft picks in the 2008 nfl draft and will have a lot of flexibility to do some wheeling and dealing, which is something jerry jones does almost every year. however, with only ten minutes between each pick in the first round, jerry jones will have to act fast.

so here is the good news, rb darren mcfaddden is having a solid year, but not a great one, arkansas has struggled with no passing game and opposing defenses are loading up to stop the run. unless mcfadden has a rushing explosion and runs his last few games for 300 plus yards, he is unlikely to win the heisman trophy. so his draft stock has fallen just slightly. plus, most of the teams with the highest draft picks like miami, st. louis, atlanta, minnesota and new england (from san francisco) will not be in the market for a running back. so it is highly likely mcfadden will fall out of the top five picks in this draft.

and now for the bad news, the cleveland browns are having a very good year and that means the cowboys won't have a top ten pick. they would almost certainly have to package both of their first round draft picks together to move up to around the five slot to get mcfadden.

oh.... well nfl draft dog said it... it must be true. no references in the article. no quotes. no interviews. just some numnut in cyber space blowing hot air out of his keister. not only that. how is mcfadden's draft stock fallen? this article seems to think that not winning the heisman will hurt mcfadden... blink.gif

dallas targeting mcfadden in '08?

go ahead and pencil arkansas rb darren mcfadden as julius jones' replacement in 2008. jerry jones said his scouts are already working on next year's draft, but he declined to discuss specific prospects. he was asked if the cowboys might be targeting mcfadden with the pick they got from the browns in the brady quinn deal. "darren mcfadden? who's he play for?" jerry said with a wink.

why exactly does dallas not want mcfadden? julius jones is gone at the end of the season. they have a two back system. see a hole there? it's so obvious. why would jerry jones not make a move for him, when a: he will have the ammunition to do so and b: it will be position of need next year? you are quick to discredit anything that has to do with them wanting him, but not quick to offer up any reasons why they wouldn't.

yeah, and not real sure where that is coming from since it doesn't make much sense.

whether it's true or not, it does make a lot of sense.

1. the cowboys need a running back. barber's very good, but doesn't have break away speed. they have a good run-blocking line, and a combo of barber and mcfadden would run all over everyone, leaving romo with plenty of space to land the killer blow.

2. jerry jones is an ardent arkansas alum, and is known to make sure he gets what he wants.

3. with two 1st rounders, they have the ammo to move up.

4. they don't actually have a lot of holes to fill, so can go for the one difference maker.

1. mcfadden is an every down back, barber, maybe/maybe not, but he's going to want his shot at it and will not be happy with a mcfadden selection. while it may not be a major concern for dallas, you don't want disgruntled players on your team, especially one you may need to count on.

2. true that he's a former razorback player & he does seem to give a complete effort at making sure he gets what he wants, but has he said he wanted mcfadden at the cost of 2 1st round picks?

3. they do have the ammo to move up, no disputing that.

4. dallas does have some holes to fill though. wr is a definite need for them given the ages of owens & glenn and with crayton being an ufa this season. nt is another area with a large need for the cowgirls, they really don't have great depth there behind ferguson who will be 33 next season. cb is another need area newman is signed through 2009, but can void his deal after 2008. ol is also another need. flozell adams, their lt is also going to be 33 next year, but he may not be a cowpoke, he's a fa (unless he's signed an extension that i haven't seen).

there are several need areas for the cowgirls & i'd be hard pressed if i were them to give up a possible early doucet/gosder cherilus combo or a sam baker/ adarius bowman combo and cement their lt/wr spots for years to come just to get a rb that's going to be splitting time.
