"it's elementary dear Hos"
Yeah, Henry's bad game wouldn't concern me at all if he were 25, but at 30, it's maybe time to start preparing for the future. We've spent so many 1st rd picks on the defensive side, so I would like to concentrate a bit more on the offensive side.
Would it be safe to say that Watkins just needs experience... those are my thoughts... or is there something more?
Give me any combination of these picks and I'd be happy...
Kyle Young Center from Fresno St.
Justin Blaylock OG/OT from Texas
Best OT on the board in the second or third round
LaRon Landry FS from LSU
Frank Okam NT from Texas
OR Top CB in the first and move Henry to FS
This HAS to be a MEAT AND POTATOES draft!!!
be honest with me...you just want him for the last name :
I love his last name, but I like his game better. A lot better in fact.
It could only mean good things are in store for him :bow:
I totally agree with wanting to take an Olineman or Jarret if he falls. I don't want anymore picks on this defense though. The Cowboys have already wasted enough picks on it. I think the problem is the person calling the defense. I am absolutley convinced that if Freeny played opposite of Ware, they still wouldn't get pressure.
has a team ever had consecutive number one overall pics?
Geez, if we stay on this pace and finish up 8-8 and only get the 17th pick, I'm gonna be pretty mad.
Yes, 5 times.
1999 & 2000 Cleveland Browns, Tim Couch & Courtney Brown.
1994 & 1995 Cincinnati Bengals, Dan Wilkinson & Ki-Jana Carter.
1986 & 1987 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Bo Jackson & Vinny Testaverde.
1939 & 1940 St. Louis Cardinals, Ki Aldrich & George Cafego.
1936 & 1937 Philadelphia Eagles, Jay Berwanger (1st ever draft pick) & Sam Francis.
lol apparently it never works out for the better then
Consdiering jackson did not play with the bucs, its pretty much true that no team that ever had back to back #1's ever did well. Looking at that entire list, not one of those players were ever worth a #1. But then the reason why those teams were picking at that position was that they stunk from the field to the front office as those picks showed.
Here's a trivia question.
The Cowboys have had 3 overall #1 draft picks. Who are they?
They would have had a 4th overall #1 draft pick but the pick was "voided." Why?
Bo was definately worth the overall # 1 and I think Jay Berwanger was too.
Aikman was one; I think Lilly was another; maybe TD for the third?
Cannot judge Berwanger since he never played pro ball; Jackson - I don't know. His career was pretty short.
Bob Lilly was the 13th pick of 1961, Tony Dorsett was the 2nd overall behind Ricky Bell of USC to Tampa to play for his college coach.
Bo was amazing pre injury though. One of the best I ever saw.
