Dallas Cowboys 2011 Draft Picks: Their Impact This Season and Beyond Jonathan Bales http://dallascowboystimes.com/2011/...ft-picks-their-impact-this-season-and-beyond/ Some (including me to a degree) have criticized the Cowboys for selecting players at certain positions, even if those prospects were the highest on their board at the time. Second-round pick Bruce Carter is a highly-talented player, for example, yet there’s really no doubt that the Cowboys could have secured a player at the No. 40 overall selection who will contribute more in 2011 than Carter. Clearly the organization though Carter’s long-term value was enough to bypass more immediate value. We could debate the efficiency of this strategy all day, but regardless, I wanted to take a look at the potential impact of the Cowboys 2011 draft class this season and beyond.
