The Cowboys could have picked Portis they didn't want him. Dallas was targeting DeShaun Foster, but when Carolina snapped him up, we went with Gurode instead.
I think Ed Reed is a better safety than Roy Williams currently. But Ed has been surrounded by talent and plays his natural position. Roy doesn't. I'm eager to see just how dominate Roy can be when he's not back deep chasing fleet receivers. I think he's going to be a monster near the line of scrimmage. Then, I think his impact will rival that of Reed, in substance if not in flash.
