I think there are many reasons. The Cowboys do not need a WR. For all of the whinging about depth we have Dez Bryant, Terrence Williams, Dwayne Harris and Cole Beasley who are all accomplished WR in the NFL. We also have not one or two pass catching TE who can flex out and run patterns on the perimeter; we have three. Let Witten, Hanna and Escobar compete for jump balls with guys 40 pounds less than them or heaven forbid give Harris a shot. WR in the first round doesn't bust out particularly bad but it also does not result in all that many pro bowls either. It ends up pretty average with a fat middle. An 8-8 team doesn't need middling. The WR at the top of this draft are not NFL ready. There are two WR worth selecting are not ready for the NFL. I get their physical talents. Watkins can be a dynamic force like Percy Harvin with how he was used as an h-back type at Clemson and I get that Evans is a champ at getting jumpballs down the hash and at comebacks. Neither of the two showed that they can run a full NFL route tree with technique. Chopped steps and hesitation moves are not in their route running, consistent route depth is not there, good hard cuts off the right foot is not a priority in their games. Beckham is the guy with the most polish. You notice him using a lot more of the above but he is not the dominant playmaker that the first two are and is an inferior prospect relative to our draft spot. This draft is overall very deep in WR. Upwards of 20 WR are in the top 100 picks and a guy like the guy from Austin might fall all the way to the fourth. Small school specimens like http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=94124&draftyear=2014&genpos=WR who in many years might get consideration in round 4 are now slotted 6 or later by most accounts. There are that many guys coming out that can help a team right away. Many positions in this draft will be picked clean in the first two days. Safety, DE, interior OL, and LB are not very deep. Positions like OT and DT are top heavy. A lot of them go early historically and once you get past the first 8 or so it is dicey in this draft like those DT from LSU. bleh! If Watkins or Evans is the pick I am not saying that I will whinge. OTOH, I will think it is more business as usual out of Valley Ranch. Trying to hit a home run with a gamble on a projection while a sure thing goes by the way side.
