    No worries. Pass happy league with 3WRs sets.

    We'll be trotting out 3CB with 1S sets 75% of the time.

    Just curious, who is the guy in this draft that you liked that is on the same level as two first ballot Hall of Famers and arguably 2 of the top 5 to ever play their position? Not even Luck deserves that tag right now.

    And if Norm's contention is the Cowboys can't hit mid to late draft picks, shouldn't that support the argument of moving up in the draft to draft blue chip talent rather than moving down and acquiring quantity like 2009?

    Thank you! That was my thought as well.

    My worst nightmare was Dallas trading back, and back again to draft some guy who might be okay, just so we could draft a couple more 3rd and 4th rounders.

    Getting a true blue-chip CB in a league where CB's are vital was a huge coup. I hated to see the 2nd go... but it was worth it for a CB of Claiborne's caliber.

    Brockers was taken at # 14.

    Brockers + Whoever #45 = less than Claiborne by a mile

    I believe that will end up being true.

    Being relatively close to Baton Rouge, I watched a ton of LSU games and Claiborne is the real deal. A bonafied stud CB. I never even thought about him because he was one of a handful of blue-chippers and was beyond our reach (I thought).

    I can certainly understand the grief for not take some beef on the Offensive and Defensive line, but Claiborne is a game changer. On any play, he is a threat to score. He simply plays CB like he is a receiver and is often better than the receiver on offense. The only guy that can intercept the ball on this team is Lee. We need a guy like this.

    Best CB draft prospect since Revis and Champ Bailey.

    Wish you guys would lighten up on poor Claiborne's Wonderlic scores...

    Turns out he saw dyslexic, but he's KO now...

    Gotta be tough trying to trade a cornerback recovering from shoulder surgery... I think we roll with all four this season...
