    Yep, if Baltimore had taken him at 32 they wouldn't have be criticized.

    If Dallas had stayed at 18 and taken Reid, they would have been criticized for reaching on him. But if San Francisco, moves up and selects him at 18 (giving up a 3rd) rounder in the process, they are smart.

    Dallas gets criticized for passing on Floyd, then moving back to 31 (getting a third rounder in the process) to "reach" for an OL they could have had in the 2nd round. But New York and Chicago also pass on Floyd and reach for OL's they could have had in the second round (and they don't even get the extra 3rd rounder), and nobody has a problem with what they did.

    Notice any patterns here?

    They needed to get the guy that they wanted. A small "reach" is much better than the 2009 draft where they could have used one of about a dozen later round picks to move up in the 2nd and get the player that they targeted, Max Unger.

    I would have been overjoyed in the proceeding years if they have traded both 3rd rounders Brewster and Jason Williams for Unger. In fact, they would have been better off trading all of their picks for Unger.

    I can only imagine the reaction if we had drafted Pugh or Reid at 18. :laugh2:

    On tape he looks slow. He pulled on a screen and looked ridiculous and whiffed on some quick linemen. Certainly doesn't look like he will be able to handle quicker D-linemen. More of a mauler type. I am pretty sure he would have been available well into the second round at least. Jones is about the same type and he went in the fourth I think.

    So you seek out info for those teams to the same extent that you do Dallas?

    Frequent those message boards as well?

    You follow Dallas so you hear everything, good or bad. I can't remember the last time I read more than the headline to an article written about another team.

    Pretty sure it means that the fins did not want to trade up in the second because they had already used pick 42 to move up in the first.

    They sent 42 to Oakland to draft Jordan. Dallas took Escobar at 47, Miami other second was in 50's, so they ended up missing out on Escobar. Miami had an extra 2 from the Vontae Davis trade to Indy.

    Nope, I'm simply reading all these draft grades and other national media singling out Dallas for something that at least a couple of other teams had done.

    I believe SF and BAL earned that benefit of doubt and we don't until we earn it with string together a few good drafts

    I think this year's Max Unger (Schwenke) was taken in the 4th round. I understand Jerry's relcutance to fool around. Plus they had Greddy ranked a good bit higher than some, so it was not much of a reach for them. That's what counts.

    But I hope our guy dominates.

    I would not have minded them drafting both Frederick and Schwenke

    No, it's either a good move or it isn't regardless of whom is making the decision.
