I think there will be a learning curve. I intially expected something in the range of 75 to 25 or 80 to 20 on the fronts played, with the 43 being the base. Now, I think the ratio will be much more even. In truth, I did not expect the Cowboys to be able to aquire quality talent at vertually every pick that fit the 34. I expected it would take longer to aquire the talent to implement the 34. Not the case. I think we probably have enough talent after this draft to play a 34 and have adaquate reserves as well.
Having said all of this, I think it will take time to make the change. I still believe we will be a base 43 team this year but I expect us to use the 34 much more. I also expect the ratio to be a mix of something like 60/40 with the balance increasing twords the end of the season. By next year, I expect to be a base 34 team. Nothing is in stone and my opinions are just that, opinion, but I have to say that I'm extremely impressed with the way we worked the draft. I can't believe we were able to aquire so much talent for the 34 in just one draft.
