    Smith and Watt are both perennial all pros. Watt's already there, hopefully Smith doesn't take too long to convert.

    He was top 3 at his position his rookie year, and he's learning a whole new one now, and he looks better every game.

    yeah i'm sort of in a bad mood today. heater is not working on one of the coldest nights of the year.

    top 3 right tackle. he will be judged by how he plays on the left side. nobody can confidently say he will be a perennial pro bowler based on his play on the left side this year.

    ok let me be more specific. what have you seen from him to make you think he can be a perennial pro bowler on the left side? are you basing it solely on his youth?

    I also remember how there are about 20 threads on why the Cowboys haven't addressed the offensive line. So when we do take a O- lineman in the 1st round, everybody is complaining why we didn't pick JJ Watt.
    Some people are just hard to satisfy.

    For all we know Watt could be a steroid-induced freak.

    Watt is a beast...I haven't seen anyone like him in a while from an interior DLineman. The guy is disruptive for an entire 60 minutes, he makes his presence known at least once or twice on every possession

    That is the exception not the rule. Need I list our first round picks the last ten years (or times we traded away first round picks)? I could but that would be cruel.

    As an isolated incident it is silly to make these ifs and but statements about what if we selected this or that player. However, given our track record with draft picks it is not so silly as it fits neatly into a well established narritive of utter incompetence with this front office.
