This guy was the 18th pick of the 06 draft. He was a pure Parcells pick, mainly as his dad Rob played for him. He isn't a good fit for their 3-4 and hardly sees the field. Scott Fujita was another linebacker who didn't fit the Dallas 3-4 scheme and I think Carpenter could make a similar impact. He clearly has talent and potential. Do you think the Cowboys could be tempted to trade him, especially if they feel they may need more fodder to move up in this draft for McFadden or another target? He's 24 and was a very good linebacker at Ohio State better suited to the 4-3. I would enquire

Sure why not? Has to be better than what we have.....comparing him to Fujita isn't going to impress me though. He has to be the most overrated player on this board. I guess compared to the rest of our D though he looks good. Woudn't be starting on many other teams in my opinion. Average player.

I started to post that we should absolutely not do it. He has been a bust here in Dallas. but the more I think of it, he has been misused with the Cowboys. I wouldn't be against trading for him.

what swamp water are you drinking? Fujita is far from overrated. He plays a good overrall game at LB and is dependable. He is a prime example that a 3-4 scheme didn't help but rather hurt his play. He played well in KC in a 4-3 and is playing well again in nO in a 4-3.

I wouldn't be adverse to trading for Carpenter but nothing higher than a 4th round. He has to be better than Shanle.

Good idea. How about a sign and trade Devery Henderson? They need WRs over there 'cause theirs are getting old. Neither player is really panning out for the other team apparently.

More of a SLBer in a 4-3. We have Fujita player there already. Don't think he has the range to play MLBer. If we are going to trade for someone, I am hoping its a healthy Vilma.

Then we'd have 3 ex-cowboy LBs... no thanx... I'd rather draft 2 LBs in this draft (Mayo in the 2nd and Adibi in the 3rd), and let those 2 start... wouldn't be any worst that Simeneau and Shanle...

This team have enough weak linebackers, Why bring in another reserve and try to make a starter.

I don't know where all the Bobby Carpenter love comes from all of a sudden. Much like our very own Robert Meachem, Carpenter spent much of his rookie season on the inactive list (except he didn't have an injury to be his crutch). Now he's pretty much a special teams guy.

I know, I know, the Cowboys have great linebackers. But he wasn't drafted in the 1st round to ride the pine.

I'll pass.
