I like Steadman Bailey but I don't think he is that different than the 3 Arkansas guys that went in the 4th last year.
I like Cooper so long as we are going to a zone blocking scheme. I don't really know our offensive direction, so that is not an indictment of your draft but rather confusion about the Cowboys. I don't see many Cooper highlights where he lines up nose to nose a pushes a guy backward. No matter what system you run, some NFL plays come down to that. Admittedly, I have not watched enough but that was my big problem with DeCastro. The highlights were pulling and running the Greg Roman style offense that we don't do a ton of and the Zeitler highlights looked like a typical NFL game.
I really like Holmes Short and Franklin.
Just throwing something out if we don't keep Spencer because of the cap:
What about drafting Mingo or Jordan as a pass rushing SAM that can play DE in the nickle? Finding a strongside DE that can really rush is like finding a leprechaun. The player that can do that is probably in the top 10, not at 18.
I don't think we will be worth much on defense if we have 1 outside rusher.
