According to ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper, they didnít get much. Kiper regraded each teamís draft on Thursday
and the Cowboysí original C+ grade was moved down to a C.
ďDespite getting a very good player in Morris Claiborne, this draft looks worse after a full season,Ē Kiper wrote. ďYou canít just say the trade up to get Claiborne at No. 6 was a brilliant move, because thatís analyzing the pick in a vacuum. In terms of overall value, the Cowboys got Claiborne at the cost of a valuable second-round pick. So while the fact that Claiborne is a good one is a credit to Dallas, he also came at the cost of a pick that would likely turn into a starter. (Dallas has landed Bruce Carter, Sean Lee, Mike Jenkins, Anthony Fasano and Marcus Spears in Round 2 in recent years.) And beyond Claiborne, there isnít much here.
ďTyrone Crawford looks like a depth addition, and Kyle Wilber isnít a future starter. The one guy you might point to is James Hanna, who caught 8 passes and showed some upside down the stretch. But overall, the draft is about Claiborne, a very good player, but one who came at a cost. I just canít say thereís anything here of significance beyond that selection.Ē
