    Would you trade the #7 overall pick to Dallas for the #22 pick, their 3rd rounder, and Marion Barber?

    Maroney and Morris are fine. I don't get the fascination with Barber given our strength at RB.

    what is the value of Dallas's picks? somebody must have that chart somewhere? Is Dallas the only team that we can reasonably work a deal with?

    no id make Jerry Jones overpay for McFadden. 2 1sts and Barber otherwise we draft the best player in the draft and combo him with L-Money which would make our offense crazy sick.

    Actually I would make that trade, however I seriously doubt Jerry Jones will part with Marion the Barbarian.

    Too good to pass up the best player in the draft at #7. Im not fine with our run game like most of you all are.

    Blame the offensive line since it fell completely apart in the Super Bowl.

    Someone said that the #7 pick was worth 1500 pts and 22+28 were worth 1440. Personally, I'm not a fan of those charts, though, and I don't think the Pats' FO is either.

    our offensive line can be upgraded just like our RBs.

    Personally, I would, to me Morris is JAG and Maroney still hasn't proven he can be the only guy and our late rounders often outperform our 1st rounders. I doubt, however, the FO will or would, even if the Cowboys would do it.

    The problem I see is that would leave us with only Maroney as possible trade bait imho.
    Morris wouldn't fetch much considering he ended on IR, I'd imagine that would be a situation like Colvin, where he holds no value.
    Faulk's our 3rd down, do everything back.

    So we'd have Maroney, Barber, Morris, & Faulk... kinda crowded, and doesn't fill the needs we have.

    The charts are, at best, just a rule of thumb. Everyone knows that different drafts differ in quality. They also differ in how that quality is structured. Some have a number of potentially great players with slim pickings afterward; others are sparse at the top but have a large "middle class."

    Say hello to Barber, say goodbye to Morris!

    How about Bobby Carpenter somehow being involved in that deal?

    Okay, no, this idea could work. Sure why not.

    A team with a perfectly good and improving running game gives up the number seven pick. Meanwhile, Dallas gives them back almost all the trade value in picks, then gives them a draftee who has proven his value!

    What a great idea! A lose-lose trade! I had no idea it could be done so elegantly! I mean, a win-win is tough enough to pull off, but this is positively brilliant!

    now tell us how you really feel ;)

    If McF is still there at #7, pull the damn trigger, please.
