Next on our tour of the NFC East is the Cowboys 2011 draft.? While it would have been more economical to continue down 1-95 from New York to Philadelphia to Washington DC and visit the Redskins next, we will instead take a plane to Dallas.? It?s all being written off and paid for by SNY anyway.

Being that this is Jason Garret?s first draft, this was an opportunity for him to put his stamp on the team.? He did so, taking an offensive lineman in the first round; the first time the Cowboys have done so in roughly three centuries.

The Cowboys had the ninth overall pick, which they used on USC offensive tackle Tyron Smith.? Smith was the right pick for the Cowboys, even if it wasn?t a great value pick.? In a perfect world, they would have traded down and let Smith or Anthony Castonzo fall to them, but taking Smith ninth is the next best thing.? He was the most talented tackle in the draft, and he could anchor their offensive line for the next ten years.

Two potential Giants targets, LB Akeem Ayers and LB Bruce Carter, were taken back to back by the Titans and Cowboys early in the second round.

Ayers wasn't going to last to the Giants, but Carter was someone that would have fit right in once he is at full strength. Giants fans can't be too happy to see him in Big D.

Dreams can be fun.?Inception showed us this.

I have decided to take my first crack at a ?dream draft? for the Giants 2011 draft; not necessarily the perfect draft, but a mock draft created only with players I would like to see the Giants draft.? Obviously, all of these players will not be available for the Giants at the time of their projected selection, but each pick is within the realm of possibility, if not totally realistic.

Keep in mind that the Giants do not have a 5th round pick (traded for Sage Rosenfels), but have three 6th round picks (two compensatory picks).
