Personalized Big Board

!Illinois linebacker Martez Wilson could be a good fit in the middle of a 3-4 scheme.

linebackers is a great idea at the top of the first round, I have no reservations about the bottom of the first, and anything past that. Although I am intrigued to see what Anthony Spencer does in Ryan's scheme, there's no reason not to start looking ahead. Houston is a natural fit for a 3-4 scheme and would bring an immediate presence off the edge.  

  *32. Dallas (From Green Bay)  *

Mikel LeShoure, RB, Illinois - Yes, I know I just completed an entire first round without drafting a true safety. That means there aren't any in this draft. But with the last pick in the first round, obviously the Cowboys had to trade up from the 40th pick to get here. No, tailback isn't a strong need but this guy can definitely help your team. If it's agreed that Marion Barber is not in the plans, then it's time to find a short-yardage option with the chance of finding that every-down back as well. LeShoure could be the right fit. He's strong, durable and racks up yards. And if he's anything like the last Illinois RB to get drafted in the first round - some guy named Mendenhall - then he's worth the pick.  

  So that's my off-the-wall take on 32 different draft scenarios. More than likely, only about two or three could come into play.  

  But once again, in the draft world of Jerry Jones ... you just never know. It's always good to be prepared.
