    It doesn't look like that one has accounted for the games this week. Wouldn't this week's results effect the draft order some?

    the records were accurate (16 games) I'd much rather go with ESPN than some kid from draftcrazy

    Yeah draftcrazy was the one I was referring to because it said it was last updated on 12/28.

    I think ESPN is wrong because they are not going by strength of schedule. Pretty sure that's how draft tie-breakers are decided.

    The one on ESPN.com is wrong. They just flashed the correct order on Sportscenter and it followed the other site.

    So that 3rd round pick from the Cowboys will be either the 9th or 10th pick (depending on who wins the coin flip out of Cowboys/Giants) in that round.

    Thanks for the link, beerlover. I had been wondering what the final (post regular season) order would be.

    Can't stand to see that our (Dallas) Buffalo pick became the 18th overall after they started the season 0-4. grrrr.. :mad:

    Interesting to see Denver has forfeited their 3rd rounder because of salary cap violations. Anybody else ever heard of this happening before?

    I thought the same thing happened to the Browns when Carmen Policy was there. Perhaps they were only fined money.

    It could be worse.

    Some draft sites believe that the 8-8 playoff teams draft at the end of the 8-8 non-playoff teams, but before the 9-7 teams, meaning the Buffalo pick is 20th. It maybe 18th, but I'm not sure it's clarified.

    Yeah, I've heard anywhere between 18th-20th. Still a lot lower than what I was predicting (top 10) after their start. grrrrr.. :mad:

    If Rolle drops in our laps at #11, I'll shat an eggroll. He's the one player in the draft I want. Hawthorne would be almost equally fitting. If we walk away with those two players in the first round, I'd be giddy.

    But don't get my hopes up. I'm fully expecting Jones/Parcells to botch this.

    I was sure Parcells/Jones had screwed up you guys draft last year by trading down and taking Julius Jones but boy was I wrong. I still think you guys gave up too much for Henson though, but that's just my opinion and I am not complaining about it.... :bouncey:

    Problem with what we gave up for Henson: If Parcells refuses to play him, we'll never know. Unless he sucks really bad in practice and that's the reason Parcells keeps him off the field.

    So I guess if Henson never sees the field, then we did indeed give up too much for him. I just don't see the logic in keeping him off the field to find out.

    My thought on it is that we drafted him in the 7th and got a 3rd round pick for him. I do not know how he is doing in practices or whatever, I just wonder if the Tuna played Vinny because he only signed a one year contract and maybe figured let him earn his money and maybe keep Henson and Romo from getting injured or maybe Romo and Henson looked that bad in paractice I dunno.
