Using that money on Carr has a direct impact on what we can do elsewhere. Using those two picks on Claiborne certainly cost us two players at other positions.
To me it comes down to maximizing value and getting the most bang for your buck. What the Cowboys ended up doing with those resources was the worst case scenario for me.
I agree. Once again it is a perfect example of Jerry getting splash for his buck rather than bang. Claiborne was a good pick but, overall, he was not a great value. This team could have used a center, guard, or tackle who would have provided valuable depth if not starting material.
As for the rest of the players, except for Coale, they are all big question marks.
Garrett to players: Make today a great day; go about the business of winning! If you can't keep up then don't step up.
