    The news of fifth-round pick Danny Coale being knocked out for the season with a torn ACL in his left knee today brings the total number of Cowboys' 2012 draft picks injured for an extended period to three.

    Of the seven draft picks, seventh-round linebacker Caleb McSurdy (Achilles), and now Coale, a wide receiver, are lost for the season. Fourth-round pick Matt Johnson, a safety from Eastern Washington, has battled hamstring injuries all season and hurt his back rehabbing from a hamstring pull. Johnson has been kept on the active roster all season until Saturday when the team placed him on IR designated for return.

    McSurdy, Coale and Johnson didn't play a down this season. McSurdy was hurt in training camp, Coale was on the practice squad and Johnson was kept on the active roster despite his health issues.

    The Cowboys can't control when injuries occur to their team, but the youngest portion of the roster, the draft picks, is where some of your future is held.

    another failed draft, which is why JJ sucks and this team is constantly between 6-9 wins and failure in the playoffs. Fact.:bang2:

    This was the same stuff that people where spewing because bruce carter did not play anything but special teams at the end of the year because of injury.

    The classic if the mid or late round pick is not a probowler his first year he is a bust. Gets an injury which happens they are an instant bust. Development time for guys that need it nope we do not know how to draft. Which when people keep putting up the results of this team drafts better than us and it is shown they are no different they have no logical come back.
