    Miles Austin, Tony Romo, Ron Leary, Cole Beasley . . . are supposed to make me feel better about the 7th?

    There was a time when a 7th rd pick was a mid round pick. Of course there were less teams though but there's talent there if you know where to look.

    Some of the guys drafted by Dallas in 6th and 7th rounds recently:
    2013 - Devonte Holloman - 6th
    2012 - James Hanna - 6th
    2011 - Dwayne Harris - 6th
    2010 - Sean Lissemore - 7th
    2009 - John Phillips - 6th
    2008 - Erik Walden - 7th
    2007 - Nick Folk - 6th

    They aren't just throwaway picks. You can get decent players and decent depth..you NEED to get your depth here.

    All draft choices are valuable if used prudently.

    The seventh has been good to the Cowboys as has UDFA. It seems we take more "football players" and fewer projects.

    It is just too bad we take the projects earlier.

    My theory there is simple. Jerry doesn't care as much about those picks. He's less interested. So we're getting more scout input into the final decision.

    Good points by both.

    I know we beat on our scouts a lot, but the fact that we get so many decent players later on is a testament that they just might be pretty good at what they do.

    If they get one good player and a ST player it will be good.

    I do! Of course when you are as old as I am you can remember the entire history of the Cowboys. Well, I was a fan for the entire history of the Cowboys but that doesn't mean I remember everything. lol. Age does that sometimes.

    Agree.....There are going to be some good players that are gonna slip this year since the draft is so deep. I bet you will get guys that are normally 5th rounders going in the 7th

    There is a whole lotta truth behind that. Mike & Mike were talking about Julius Peppers and Jared Allen this morning. The bottom line is Peppers is by far the best athlete but Allen has outproduced him each year for 4 years running now. So they think the Bears upgraded the DL by signing the better football player in Allen over the better athlete in Peppers.

    Good luck finding him after round 4, his combine performance alone has caused his stock to skyrocket.

    but chances are you won't fill those voids with 7th round choices

    7th round picks allow you to get lesser talented players that you don't have to compete with other teams over. So, you acquire top level UDFAs without having to compete in signing bonuses, or with teams closer to winning a Super Bowl. This year's 7th rounders would probably have a grade of 5th or 6th round in any other recent draft.
