    Exactly right.
    If that is the best situation to go with- go with it.
    Don't go reaching if that's your only other option.

    There is such a thing as a second round and a third and trading picks as the draft goes and so on...

    No? Doesn't happen? Watch. Yo minds about to get blown!
    Would it get done correctly? Well now... Jerry's running this outfit so you never can tell with him, but...

    It's been done before- even by Hoss Jones himself.

    Better than drafting a high WR.

    When he gets healthy and put into a situation where he can use his talent, I'll get back with you. Until then no one knows.

    I'm hoping he slides to the Cowboys. Highly, highly, highly unlikely. But, hey Dez slid. I ran many mock simulations at first-pick.com and have yet to see Sammy Watkins get past Detroit. Usually he is taken with the 3rd - 8th pick. I'm glad he isn't going to the NYG, Wash, or Philly.

    If Sammy Watkins is still there, grab him and don't look back! He won't be unless he doesn't perform well at the combine or gets a low score on his test.

    I don't see another WR coming out like Dez the man-child did and fell to us.

    If it comes to our pick with good to mediocre DL talent and a top-notch WR, go with the WR IMO. I like Kelvin Benjamin(FSU) too but I am not sure it is worth it to draft him and pass on a defensive player, but Watkins would be worth it.

    (sigh)...no thank you on WR....BPA should be used but only in the sense that it should be BPA that is a DL or OL (or possibly LB, although none will be there worth taking with the 1st pick)

    This team isn't good enough to take BPA. Too many needs on the defensive side of the ball.

    If it came down to choosing between a mediocre d-lineman or an elite WR, the choice is to take the elite guy. Drafting primarily for position is a losing proposition. Average can be had in later rounds. Not so with the elite players who might easily impact many seasons thereafter.

    If said WR is the 2nd coming of Calvin Johnson, then absolutely you draft him. Anyone else would be a wasted pick considering the Cowboys other needs.

    WR is one of our biggest strengths, we need to let Harris and Williams get their turn. Let's focus on the defense side of the ball. Lord knows we need it.

    They rank players by tiers. There is a very low probability that a WR is available that they have ranking a full tier above all other available players.

    The primary purpose of trades is to match BPA with need. If the Cowboys have that WR ranked that high, there is a high probability that a team that needs a WR also has him ranked high. If the Cowboys are only team that has him ranking that high, then as a fan, you probably don't want them to draft him.

    It's something to blog about, but it's about a 1% chance that they end up in the situation to make that decision.

    I don't believe in pure BPA. Suppose the BPA is a WR in the 1st round, and you already have a solid, young No. 1 WR on the roster. Then, in the second round, BPA is again a WR. Do you take him? What if it were 2 QBs in a row, to add to your established young star starter? TEs? Maybe in the pre-salary cap days, when trading actual players was easier.

    In today's economic structure, I think you have to go modified BPA: prioritize positions, and go BPA only in those positions. Don't lock yourself into one position (e.g., DT) or even one category (e.g., D-line). But focus on BPA where the needs are greatest.

    I can see the quote now.

    Jerry, "We wanted to make a splash."
