Personally for me I would rather address the defense once again with our first pick. I would love to take Price but I'm too scared of DTs in the first round given our history. My top choice would be Earl Thomas, so hopefully he is still around when we pick. It will largely depend on what teams are thinking about Mays though. I would guess that 2 of the 3 top safeties will be gone by our pick, so it depends if Mays goes before Thomas or not.
Though I think we need to do more than just focus on beating the Colts. As Corrosion pointed out keeping Manning off the field isn't enough if you don't score points as well. We've had problems on getting into the endzone once we get into the RZ. I think adding an OL that will help the offense hold the LOS would be big or adding another threat outside would create mismatch problems with opposing defenses.
I absolutely DO NOT want a DT in the first round. Am I a bit disappointed with the production we've gotten out of our DTs? Yes. But that doesn't mean I want or think that throwing another DT to the rotation will help.
If Thomas is there and we snag him I'll be happy that we're going to get a true play making FS for once in the history of the franchise.
I still think we'd be better served putting our offense into overdrive and being able to score at will whether that is improving the OL, RB or landing Dez Bryant, again IF he's there.
