    Maybe he's not sold on Watkins...

    Curious...how many here are sold on Watkins? Have not seen enough to make any judgements....

    Call me crazy but we could do alot worse than Keith Davis. We also signed Coleman to push him and now we drafted Watkins who is a talented guy.

    I think we've addressed that position and Mr Kiper is a goof.

    Mel had Pat Watkins rated as the 20th best safety in the draft.

    I liked him a lot coming in, but since he slid so far, I'm wondering if I seriously overrated him. I prefer the tall, rangy centerfield-type of free safeties (Michael Downs was a favorite of mine).

    Since Dallas moved up to get him, that makes me feel a little better.

    His size makes him an unusual player and I'm not sure some teams knew what to do with him. With his long legs, he may not have the quickness to cover the slot receiver or match up one-on-one with little guys, but he can certainly patrol deep and keep a lot of the crap that happened last year from happening again.

    mel has kellen clemens not in his top8 QBs (8 because leinhart, young, cutler werent included in top5) hes an idiot. Watkins is a great compliment to Williams and a good selection in the 5th. not an amazing player or anything but who cares.

    Kiper or one of the other goons at ESPN, said Watkins would fit in nice behind Roy Williams..... Said he lacked coverage skills etc, just like Williams.

    and they call him an "expert":laugh2:

    No Kiper is dead on - Dallas missed the boat on Draft Day - we had and still have a massive hole at cover safety - Fasano was an asinine choice.

    And Scouts Inc has Watkins rated at the 6th best S in the draft, and a projected 3rd round pick. And in his bio they have him profiled as one of the top pure deep-zone coverage Safeties in the draft. This is exactly waht Dallas needs to relieve Roy Willimas of coverage responsibility and have him cherat up in the box instead. If Watkins pans out then we just made Roy a better player and that's scarry! Let's hope Watkins can win (by earning) the starting FS job.

    I'm sure Kiper meant that he was surprised that we didn't address it sooner. He has been saying for months now that we'd draft a FS in round 1.

    He does just fine in scouting the prospects for the draft, but Kiper really needs to not try and guess what the team needs are. Clearly, Parcells and company are okay with Coleman/Davis/Watkins competing at FS. Just because Kiper thinks we should have gone FS in round 1 doesn't mean that's what we really needed to do, or that that's what Parcells wanted out of this draft.

    Clearly, with us wanting to run a two TE set a whole lot, we thought the need to get a starting quality TE opposite Witten was more important that getting a FS to compete with Coleman/Davis.
