So I think we may have been primed to take Childs but the Vikings got him at 134 so we got S Matt Johnson instead.
Again, speculation on my part.
Originally I was with you, but the Cowboys claim that they wanted both Wilber and Johnson with the first 4th round pick and didn't think the other would fall to the last pick in the round. I don't know if they are being truthful or not but it does make some sense that they thought Johnson would be lost and were prepared to pick Danny Coale at that spot (since I think Jerry claimed Coale was ranked at the top of the 5th) then realized that Johnson wasn't drafted by the eagles/bears/jets afterall and was available.
