    They're not going to draft a safety high in this draft unless one of the top three falls to #47 in the second round, is my guess.

    It doesn't mean they think they're "set" per se.

    if not, they are going to be picking off the trashpile.. aka the pass rush plan.

    These safeties will play better after a year in the system, and an upgraded D line won't hurt. There's no reason the FO or fans should be giving up on Church and/or Wilcox.

    I'm not saying we're "set", but safety isn't our biggest need. The only way I feel good about taking a S high in this draft is if the FO truly believes they're an immediate starter and game changer.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they don't draft a safety at all. Clinton-Dix and Pryor were never the 10 yr plan at safety imo, they aren't Eric Berry/Earl Thomas caliber prospects. They might make sense for a team that feels their defense is a safety away from greatness but not here. Also doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me to spend yet another 4th on a safety. I'm still high on Wilcox as a potential starter

    It should say that the FO sees safety as a much smaller need than some other positions... primarily DE and DT on defense, which are much more important to the function of Marinelli's unit.

    what a freaking joke,i just cannot believe they are ok with t
    safety is a huge need imo.we need safeties who can play in space for the tampa 2 and we dont have any on our roster,Qbs will just throw it to guys near our safeties and its a easy catch every time because they are poor in recognition and dont break early on the ball.

    You have to consider Broaddus' logic.

    If they gave him an indication that they don't plan to draft a Safety in the 1st round, then with his logic he probably translates that to mean that they consider themselves set at the position.

    Often, it appears that he reports what the Cowboys are thinking based on the thoughts of 1 person in the organization and maybe just 1 comment from that person.

    It seems obvious that the Cowboys general mindset is that they're going to give themselves a chance to develop some players and not try as hard to cover themselves with stopgap veterans. I'm not sure that means that they fell "all set" at several positions.

    The safety plan: Pick a ton of white dudes from middle of nowhere community college and hope they can play.

    Yeah, I wouldn't call them "set" at safety. But the young guys need to be given an opportunity.

    You can't fix the whole defense in one offseason.

    This is ridiculous hyperbole that's not even close to true, nor is it humorous.

    Wilcox could be decent. Church is a special teamer and the rest are hopeless.

    Your analysis is amazing. I'm also impressed that you nailed down J.J. Wilcox's limitations after not even a full 16 games of footage from his rookie year. What a wasted draft pick. Thanks for clearing this up for all of us.

    He fell asleep at the beach.

    This is Broaddus we're talking about here. He's guessing. People need to stop acting like he's got some inside source within the organization. There is no way we are so stupid as to tell a writer what we're thinking in the upcoming draft.
