    Maybe they do, maybe they don't. BB doesn't reveal a lot about what their processes are if you know anything about him.

    They also keep coaches around for long stints (like 10 years minimum) and that is the model I was speaking to in rebuttal to your argument that it is stupid to involve a position coach in a draft decision when he'll be gone in 4 years and won't be around by the time they develop.

    You seem to have this big issue with Dooley and that started you down a path. But this method of evaluation of draft prospects has nothing to do with the qualifications of Dooley. That is what "For example" means. You did read the article???

    Your suggestion that we're actually not in good hands because we found a franchise QB at the bottom of the 4th round is very interesting. Gonna have to give this one the careful consideration it deserves before weighing in.

    I believe the point is that they had Dak as the SEVENTH RATED QB in the draft. If that was the case then they really cannot brag about what he has become.

    apparently only linehan "knew" and the rest didnt see anything special, like the rest of the nfl.
    Thing is everyone except linehan overlooked or didnt see dak for what he is.
    Funny thing is linehan also likes kellen moore, so maybe moore is better than most think?

    Balls. There were, what, 2000 players coming out of college last year? 250 or so were drafted at all. The Cowboys had 9 picks, total. And fans want to complain that guys contributed to the team significantly but not in lock step with their draft order. So that becomes a justification to suggest the team didn't know what it was doing with the draft. In a season where we had what's probably the best draft in the entire league.

    I'm sorry. That argument's so bad it makes my ears bleed just trying to puzzle out how it even made sense in his head before he typed it out and decided to push 'post reply.'

    Who do you imagine submitted the card on the Dak pick? You think it was Linehan? Did he grab it and make a break for the podium do you imagine?

    If the Cowboys were so far off on Dak Prescott what does that make the other 31 teams? Or the other 32 that passed on Brady? Or Romo?

    If they were to not tell Jerry when the draft was, this might improve their odds of having quality drafts year after year.

    That is a good point. But just like the scouts spend more time with the prospects, the coaches have spent years in their system. They know the ingredients that will make them successful better than anyone. I'd be seriously concerned if their voices (eg scouts vs coaches) were not at least equally weighted.

    Bravo! You yanked a guffaw out of me whilst half-asleep. That, sir, is not easy.

    I've actually bagged on Jerry for many many things over the years. I'm a Garrett and Romo fan, not a Jerry fan. This is you saying things you know are untrue and which you make zero effort to support. And then you scurry off when challenged on it. Just on the topic of last year's draft, I really disliked a RB at #4 overall and I hated the pick at #34.

    What I didn't do is bag on the Dak Prescott pick. Because that would be stupid. I thought he was a guy with some ability and the right makeup to be successfull, but he had a lot of work to do. What was unusual about Dak was how quickly he transitioned to taking snaps under center and how quickly he was able to diagnose what NFL defense's were doing. Neither of those things were apparent prior to the draft, which is why every NFL team graded him the way they did.

    it shows they are not evaluating qb's in the right ways.

    I hope they grade everybody's input and give the ones with high grades more input. Linehan apparently loved Dak but the scouts caused the Cowboys to wait until the 4th to draft him.
