    Parcells' had multiple draft picks that didn't have the correct mental-makeup. Jacob Rogers, Barbie Carpenter, T. Newman, etc..

    newmann was JERRYS PICK

    2003 draft Newman

    The night before the 2003 draft, scouts and personnel people wanted the team to draft Terence Newman, the cornerback from Kansas State, if he was available.
    Parcells preferred Oklahoma State defensive tackle Kevin Williams.
    Owner/general manager Jerry Jones took Parcells out to dinner and convinced him Newman was the better choice. T

    he next day, Dallas selected Newman as the No. 5 pick in the first round, and he's started every game since.

    "It's been off and on," said Larry Lacewell, the Cowboys' retired scouting director, who worked with Parcells in his first two seasons in Dallas. "Under Parcells, it was him. Before, it was scouts and whoever. ... We got Jerry and Stephen [Jones] to take him out and made him mad and told him we're going to take Newman."
    Coaches wanting one player and scouts wanting another is a common occurrence in NFL draft rooms.

    I was going to congratulate you on finding a good story, then I got to the end and saw that it was by Calvin Watkins.

    Watkins is one of, if not the worst sports journalist in history.

    Going to have to start that grooming process soon.

    I don't really understand McGee's role on this team, so the sooner he is gone, the better.

    Not a bad idea but signing Orton to 3-year deal makes it less of an issue for now.

    That being said, Jerry (or wheover is in charge) seems to change draft philosophies yearly so we could draft a QB 1st round in 2013.

    Naa, I'm going to roll with this Romo guy.

    I'd rather draft our future OLB, S, or C in 2013.
