I know running back is not one of the more needed positions at this point, but I have read several stories about him and the doctors are shocked at the recover he is making. He thinks he will be ready to play this season and I wouldn't be surprised if he is able to make that kind of recovery. So, I was wondering how you all would feel if the cowboys drafted him in say the 3rd or 4th round?

I think he would be very difficult to pass up in the 4th round. But, if we don't improve the OL in the first 3 rounds... it really won't make a difference who the RB is.

Agree 100% that offensive line is top priority in the draft this year, but he seems like a good kid with a good head on his shoulders and I think he would be worth the risk of drafting despite the injury.

I'm really hoping that we do what the FFMD guys did, and sign Andy Levitre. Even if we get three top Olineman in the draft, they will still take time to develop. I think if we added Levitre, sounds like a pill, we could immediately improve the Oline play, and free up our draft picks to allow more bpa. If Lattimore is available in the 4th, I would have no problem taking him. The risk/reward is just too good to pass up. He'll probably get taken in the 2nd by some over zealous team.

It would be a perfect setting for him here. If he's healthy by 2013 season, he wouldn't have to carry the load.

We should've drafted Andy Levitre in 2009 like I wanted us to do. It's amazing how peoples' opinions change about a guy since so many of them insisted that he sucked and wasn't worth drafting. I seemed to be in a company of one when I went on record to say that I wanted us to take him leading up to the 2009 draft.

Unfortunately Wade Phillips wanted Jason Williams.

I'd love to see us free up some cap space and sign Levitre, though. Would be two years in a row we've predicted our big free agent signing in FFMD Laughing

We should have drafted anyone, but the guys we drafted in 2009. I'm hoping that new shiny bus is where Jerry will be watching Matlock and eating Tapioca pudding during the draft.

They didn't like Levitre. McCoy was the top guy on their board. That's who should have been selected.

I don't trust any decision this team makes with respect to offensive linemen because they can't evaluate them to save their lives. That's why we avoid them. As I've said many times, we'd be a much better team if we put in the same resources into evaluating offensive linemen as we do linebackers. But we don't.

^ Agreed. Christine Michael will be the steal of this RB class.
