2012 Dallas Cowboys Draft: What Exactly Is A "Right Kind Of Guy?"

Not even a week ago, Cowboys Nation was in full-on playoff anticipation mode. Yet the season-ending loss to the Giants already feels like quite a distant memory from quite some time ago, as our collective attention has moved on to the draft with a vengeance.
And one of the interesting early dynamics among Cowboys fans is the use of the "Right Kind Of Guy" label to advocate or categorically rule out certain players. Right now, potential first rounders Janoris Jenkins and Vontaze Burfict seem to get the "Wrong Kind Of Guy" label attached the most often. This worries me. Not because I'm a particular proponent of either player, but because I always get highly nervous and downright angry when, in a world that is dominated by shades of gray, the discussion is reduced to black and white.
