Making the virtual rounds today are screenshots from a recent KTVT-Channel 11 piece, shot inside the Dallas Cowboys' inner sanctum, that appear to show how Jerry Jones and Wade Phillips are ranking the defensive backs available in the upcoming draft. To backtrack, Deadspin has an item today based on one posted yesterday on the Eagles-devoted blog Bleeding Green Nation, which came from this 2008 NFL Draft Forum earlier in the week. And how, precisely, do the 'Boys rank the DBs? In order: Dominique Rogers-Cromartie, Leodis McKelvin, Kenny Phillips, Mike Jenkins, Aqib Talib, Tyrell Johnson and Tracey Porter, for what it's worth. Notes the Eagles fan: "I would love to get Wade Phillips in a poker game one day." Unless he's bluffing.
