Well he sure fooled me then.
They've made significant investments at the safety position, but with that being said, I'm sure Clinton Dix is on their draft board if he is one of the only options left.
I could see us drafting the following players:
I think we need edge rushers, but I also believe they'll be there from rounds 1-3, and maybe even 4.
LOL @ this organization thinking they're set at safety. That's actually hilarious.
We have more than 1 safety on the team that could easily be better than decent. Church led all safeties in the NFL in tackling and was part of multiple turnovers last year. Calling him a special teamer is ignorance at it's finest.
As for significant investments, do you mean Church and his $2 million dollar salary, a 3rd round pick who only played safety for 1 year in college, and a 4th round pick who probably has a key to the athletic training facility?
I'll cross two on the current roster off the list right now. Johnson can stay healthy and Heath cant play.
The focus should be bolstering the front 7, mainly the Dline. The important positions are those closest to the ball. If one of the top 3 safeties falls to us in the 2nd round then sure, if its a BPA situation and safety is the BPA at that moment, take it. I'm not exactly thrilled with the safeties we have either but I think we can hide some issues at safety with the current players with an improved pass rush and better front 7. If the FO is saying we're set then maybe their philosophy is changing and focusing on improving that front 7. However, we still have birds chirping about secondary positions, which I thought we were mad at the FO for putting so much money into.
I'm all about the front 7 but I don't want it be draft for need forced situation either. If BPA is a secondary guy then fine, but if we got trench guys there that are BPA then they sure as hell better be taken.
You can downplay it, but two years straight we've spent a 3rd and a 4th on the safety position, and it only makes sense to see how those players play out. It's always in vogue to try and draft new players, but eventually you've got to see them play...
The only thing that's hilarious is that people believe that that Cowboys told Broaddus that they are set at Safety.
Also let me add Mosley to that list of players I wouldn't mind drafting in the first.
Yeah, he can tackle. We know.
Exactly, these young guys need to be given a chance Wilcox, health and also Johnson need to be given an opportunity to prove themselves, mid round picks dint just come on as rookies in schemes they never played in and set the world on fire.
Much better. Good
Apparently It is a position of strength......amazing
Jerry said the same thing about the safety position this year, just like he said defensive line was a strength for us last year. They will never learn.
A 3rd round pick to me is a developmental player that you HOPE becomes a starter, but the player should not keep you from strengthening the position or adding a prospective better player.
A 4th round pick should receive no loyalty from the organization, especially at the safety position. The Cowboys have given Matt Johnson the past two seasons to prove himself, and he's spent more time in the tub than on the field.
I have hope for Wilcox. I don't think anything at all of the other safeties on the roster.
No, but that doesn't mean you ignore a position if the value is there in the draft.
We are set at nothing on defense.
LOL, while Broaddus may suck, your statement suggest you don't know how journalism works. Every organization, whether it's sports, politics or military has someone dumb enough to tell a writer exactly what they're thinking. Even the Patriots do a move that everyone saw coming. Off the top of my head, Joe Mayo went from a dude that no one heard about, to a dude everyone was mocking to the Patriots. It happens.
You're overlooking the value of draft picks (possibly due to bad drafting by the cowboys), but a 3rd round draft pick is a player you expect to turn into a starter, if not year one, then by year 2. Which is exactly the position Wilcox would have/should have been in had he not been injured. Expecting something from a 4th round draft pick is also not asking too much.
