Stephen: The guys we valued at 18 weren't there.
Yes....and they wanted OL with good reason. RG is the biggest hole on the team...the need at DL is not anywhere near as great. Boys may need depth at DL, but they don't need starters. Who really wants to see Bernardeau start at RG again next year? Frederick can play C too if necessary. Would like to see them get an OT in 2nd or 3rd round. Good pick IMO.
...what ELSE are they gonna say? These are the same actors that clapped, smiled, shucked and jived all while slapping each other on the backs when the pick was made: just assinine
Stephen said that same thing last year.
Stephen: There was competition for the trade-down pick. More than 1 team invovled.
Meh, this doesn't really bother me at all. In fact, I am am tired of wasting time getting upset about anything the Boys do. I will look at this just like I come have to look at the games. I will expect the worst and hope for the best.
Don't act like you don't know.
Jerry: There were 1st round players on our board available at 18.
I don't want a cerebral football player. I want a guy who mauls people. Someone nasty like Larry Allen or Erik Williams. I want a big physical guy in the trenches.
Jerry: Cowboys had Frederick graded right for 31st pick.
If Frederick starts and plays well, and they sign Clabo or Winston.....the offensive line looks much better.
Still terrible draft management though. Could have gotten this guy at 47, maybe later.
Nobody is going to call this a win and the Cowboys will be criticized. That doesn't mean it can't work out, even if he was a reach. Lets see how the rest of the draft goes.
How do you know this? Because Mayock says so? :rolleyes
I bet he thought EJ Manuel could have been had in the 2nd-3rd as well....
The reaction in the war room, the tone of this press conference is 180 difference from last year when we got Claiborne. Jerry is on the defensive in this PC b/c he knows he screwed up.
No way given the way OL was going
Jerry: We had 19 first round grades.
Yet no one will believe that, just like they didn't with Sean Lee and Bruce Carter.
Mark Stepnoski was a third rounder.
Time will tell.
Jerry: We were unanimous. (I'm calling B.S. on this)
