You only have to look back at 2009 and Max Unger to see how "reaching" for an OG/OC would have been a much better option than the alternative. The Cowboy really wanted Unger and in hindsight, should have traded away some later round picks to move up and guarantee that they got him.[/quote]
....about that statement....but that's the UTTER insanity of Jones and Co. when drafting. They'll trade away vital picks for Dez or Claiborne but if they need Unger or Konz or many other olinemen I could name they balk. Are they that ignorant or just stubborn? Dunno but it's resulted in 6-10 wins for the last 17yrs. MIGHT wanna consider a philosophical change and start drafting as many interior linemen on BOTH sides of the ball as possible. I could even live with our safeties again this year as long as we get 4 interior linemen: we need a center and a guard at minimum and two def. tackles as well. Some would say we also need another off. tackle so that would make 5 interior linemen which of course won't happen....NO organization should be this GUTTED on the interior lines.....clown show goes on.
