    Hope that is true. And to The idea that the cowboys need bodies.....they have bodies. They need playmakers.

    I love this. But it'd be more comforting from a poster not named 'Reacher.'

    I read about this guy earlier and like the numbers but I like Picks in the first 4 rounds. You could have had Jernigan and another pick to fill need in the 3rd. Don't like "all in" on a guy you feel you have to have. With that said I'm glad we went D

    Nice pick! The kid can play and he will be an asset to the D.

    Watched a few games. Here's what I see:

    - He has a nice looking body. Broaddus's prototypical comment makes sense to me.
    - Doesn't have exceptional speed but isn't slow by any means.
    - Needs more strength/mass. Probably will take 2 years to reach his potential but that's true of most players in the second round.
    - Pretty good in space.
    - Not the best at shedding a blocker when he needs to go laterally rather than forward.
    - He's very good at sniffing out fakes and screens. Smart player.
    - If the QB takes a 5-7 step drop and he isn't held, this guy will get his hands on the QB consistently. He has a good stable of swim and spin moves. Uses his hands well. Hard to block him consistently.

    I like the pick but hate to give up a third. Oh well.

    Exactly, which is why I'm OK with giving up the 3rd IF it means that Lawrence is going to be a stud.

    Quality over quantity.

    Although not a freak of nature like D-Ware in his prime; he already uses his hands better than D-Ware. We missed the D-Ware when Ware was able to play at his highest level of production, we won't miss last year's D-Ware and D-Law will be a good reason why. Anyone that watched any of Bose's games with better than 30/30 vision can see the kid can play. I predict he will be a fan favorite.

    He's probably an 9-12 sack per year player. Solid but not a consensus perennial pro bowler. I'll take it.

    Good post.

    Would add that he is tenacious and appears to chase plays even going the other way

    I think losing the 3rd round pick is overshadowing what we just drafted. I really like the pick and I didn't think for one second he's even be an option at 47 overall. He would've got picked prior to our pick and the FO would've been disappointed in letting another impact defensive player get drafted in front o us again.
