this is the most ungrounded reply to a false assertion I'v heard in a while
I appreciate that, Clark.
I want for once a kickoff and punt return specialist.
Two different guys..not just one that eventually gets hurt and we have no return game.
Attention to this small detail would help scoring and field position enormously.
I'm guessing we make 4 picks at the most in the 7th round.
I'd be willing to bet UDFA's have a higher impact than 7th rounders. At least it sure seems that way. They can go to the team that fits them best.
Maybe a remake of the 2009 special teams draft
Jay Ratliff was a 7th rounder wasn't he?
Logan Thomas would be a terrible pickup as an UDFA
normally 7th round picks aren't too exciting but this is such a deep draft, I hope we keep 3-4 of them.
Its hard to find those guys, not as easy as it sounds. Usually players who are that good at that in college go in the middle rounds of the draft. The last one I remember taking didn't turn out so well (Skylar Green?)
Was he a 7th rounder. then I rest mein case. Yes, some will pipe up with "pro bowler!" but I only recall him as a exhalted journeyman who feigned injury, was a slacker toward the end and then took a lot of money from jerra and then insulted him and then, still "injured/rehabbing" went to work right away for the Bears. He is such a mutt.
But other team do take their ST much higher than we do.
We constantly fumble along..
Using stop gap players such as trying Dez back there's then Harris..
Bailey has really panned out but I want somebody who will put the PR and KO units
..on their back and make the other third of the team really tied in with the rest of the team as having
Can this guy be the first to be banned?
G Brandon Thomas from Clemson was rated a 3rd - 4th round grade before he suffered a torn ACL last week. Would think the Cowboys could put him on IR in 2014 by spending a 7th.
I would have zero issues with taking him in the 7th. Somehow I doubt he would last that long. But you never know that is the beauty of the draft.
Last time we had so many draftees was 2009. Quantity doesn't mean quality if you don't know what you're doing.
someone else said it, but having 6 picks in the 7th (currently) will make for a little excitement near the end of the 3-day player selection meeting....and, I don't see us actually making all 6 picks...I can see one of the following:
1) using a few to move up into the 6th
2) using as a sweetener in some other deal
3) trading for picks in the 2015 draft (to stockpile picks in that draft as well)
#3 will depend on how they think that they are doing in this draft and/or if someone they like is still there...grab him up before he becomes an UDFA
Considering that three can't be traded, I'd guess we use at least 4 of them and possibly use the other two to move up into the 6th or as you say maybe a sweetener in some other deal.
There really isn't a reason not to use them all though. We can insure that we get a few of those priority free agents we always go after with the extra picks and if we don't use them we are just going to end up adding more UDFA's and more vet minimum guys for camp.
Hopefully a valued player will slide and Jerry can leapfrog over some hated rival and draft him using a compensatory pick(s).
