If you were Phil Emery and had to make a choice between keeping Melton or drafting Donald which would you choose? Personally if I had to choose only one I'd go with Donald.

I'd like to keep Melton and draft Donald as well but if it wasn't an option and you had to choose one which would it be.

If Jay Cutler didnt get signed to a long term deal and was released, who would be our QB? "If" questions dont normally work out too well on boards like these because of right now its very possible to resign Melton and draft Donald.

The problem with letting Melton walk is that you don't know that Donald will be there at 14. Every team that wants Donald will know they have to trade up in front of the Bears.

Having both would be great, but imo
is pretty unrealistic. That's a lot of resources for a single position... with all our needs on D I just don't see it, unless Melton comes a lot cheaper than I anticipate

I don't see how its unrealistic. Melton will not command what he was looking for at the time of the franchise tag. In fact I highly doubt any team is willing to give him a large multi-year contract at this point unless its incentive laden. As for drafting Donald well that is a matter of him falling into our laps during the draft or trading up for him.

And you know damn well the Cowboys need DTs and won't for a minute hesitate to move up and grab Donald. In fact I anticipate this very thing happening on top of them making a run in at Melton in free agency with a higher cap number.

The Cowboys sit at 16 and the Rams sit at 13 the Rams traded back twice last year and still wound up with the player they coveted. You don't think for a minute they won't trade down and go after a WR they covet if Dallas wants to trade up for Donald?

Emery better be on his toes doing his due diligence with Dallas trying to rebuild their defense in the mold of the Bears.

DT are very deep in this year's draft. But your right Donald might not be there @ 14.

Bring back Melton on 1 year prove it deal and trade up to draft Clowney. Draft DT next year if Melton turns into Tommie Harris part II.

based on our needs I would not select a DT in the first if we had Melton. Depending on BPA I would go DE or S
