Brockers would look good in Dallas. Ware Lee Wagner Carter would be nasty. It wasn't nearly the laughable, slam dunk, you gotta go up to get Mo if that's what we were gonna do, that people declared after the draft.
It wasn't a slam-dunk, but it wasn't a mistake, either. Wagner wasn't a position of need for us, so, while it'd be great to have him, it wasn't an obvious personnel move to make. The goal is to get your draft position to match you need in situations where there's a high-value player on the board. We definitely did that at CB at 6 this year. We just also happened to have needs for pass rushers and OLs, too.
As long as we're filling spots with players who can play, we're doing what we need to do on the personnel front. The rest of it comes down to coaching and execution. Elite organizations have to do a great job at both.
When asked whether Jason Garrett is the right head coach for this team: "I don't think there is anyone else that could. I think he is an unbelievable coach. We've responded to him and he has made us better football players, better people. If you watch us I think we play with a certain relentless spirit." --Sean Lee
