My guess is we were taking WR Greg Childs...

    Watching the War Room it is my speculation that we were going to take WR Greg Childs.

    The Packers had pick 132 and 133. After those picks the Cowboys got excited in the war room and the WR Coach was in the room shaking hands. Then the Vikings chose Greg Childs and all of a sudden the WR Coach was gone and Rob Ryan was in the room.

    So I think we may have been primed to take Childs but the Vikings got him at 134 so we got S Matt Johnson instead.

    Again, speculation on my part.

    Tommy streeter from Miami is still on the board. I'd love to grab him.

    Streeter is 6'5 and can run. Surprised he hasn't gone. I want Brad Smelly TE from Bama in the 6th or 7th as well

    This is so frurstrating. If they wanted Childs, they should have taken him with the 18th pick of the 4th round. Most likely Kyle Wilber would have still been there at the end of the 4th round - I don't think teams were lining up to draft him.

    This is typical - the Cowboys get cute and lose out on a player they want. I'll be shocked if Coale has a better career than Childs.

    Wow. Really disappointed that Childs was picked one spot ahead of the Cowboys... This wide receiver core needs to be challenged, and Childs had the tools to really compete.

    If that's true that's very upsetting, he was one of my pets but even if he wasn't he would have been a hell of a player for us.

    I think we wanted Trumaine Johnson too. It looked like the room sunk when he was picked.

    In yesterday's press conference, they said that Wilbur and Johnson were the targets in the 4th round. I don't think Childs was in the plans.

    We thought about taking a WR, but Ryan ate the WR coach and we took defense.

    Did you hear Jerry's remark about Ryan being upset that we actually used two of the picks for offense?

    Originally I was with you, but the Cowboys claim that they wanted both Wilber and Johnson with the first 4th round pick and didn't think the other would fall to the last pick in the round. I don't know if they are being truthful or not but it does make some sense that they thought Johnson would be lost and were prepared to pick Danny Coale at that spot (since I think Jerry claimed Coale was ranked at the top of the 5th) then realized that Johnson wasn't drafted by the eagles/bears/jets afterall and was available.
