Coming Up: Wes Bunting Creates a Cowboys-Only Draft Board


This week, I’ve asked our draft guy, the National Football Post’s Wes Bunting,  to create a three to four round Cowboys-specific draft board.

The conditions:
1.  I’ve expanded the range, and have the Cowboys picking between spots 15 and 25 in each round.
2.  Give names which fall in this range for the following positions:

– guards from the 1st round on who fit;
– quarterbacks from the 1st round on who fit;
– tight ends, starting in the 2nd round, who fit;
– wide receivers, especially those with plus return skills, starting in the 3rd round on;

– flexible D-linemen who can play 5-technique in a 3-4 base or a 3-technique in a 4-man front, from the 1st round on;
– Outside linebackers with rush skills, especially ones who can play on the strong side and handle tight ends, from the 1st on down;
– Cornerbacks who can play press or zone, from the 1st round on;
– Safeties, starting in the 2nd round.

Check back this evening for rounds 1 and 2.   Some surprising names (to me anyway) appears in those early rounds.
