    The problem is that Frederick was the only move they made in the offensive line.They had talent at the offensive skill positions,before the draft.They needed to address their offensive and defensive lines more.

    Yeah, I wonder how many of them had pegged Pugh at #19?

    Or Long at 20 for crying out loud?

    Wow, what a tool. He puts Tim MacMahon to shame with his toolness. I can't believe a reputable news service would employ this type of "journalist." What a disgrace.

    Why thank you. IMO the debate that we should be having is how the hell we only got a 3rd round pick for trading down

    Any so-called expert who had Frederick graded at round 3 is clearly mistaken. He's a first round talent.

    Lol calm down there buddy, what about my post made you respond like that? And when the hell did I say that I didn't welcome the addition of Frederick? I was one of the people shouting the most about fixing the o line (still doing so by the way), so I would be a hypocrite if I said I wasn't happy with the pick. All I'm saying is that I would rather the front office just admit that they went into the 1st round with the plan of fixing the line. I don't want to hear the BS downselling of the other guys on the board so people like you can regurgitate it back like its fact.

    Can we get a dislike button? This might be the worst post ever.

    And the way Frederick is playing he should have been top ten. See how that stupid game works. I'll quote someone who knows a hell of a lot more about football than anyone on this board

    Darryl (Moose) Johnston: "If Frederick is a staple on this line for the next ten years, does it matter where they took him?"

    I'm pretty sure numerous teams right now are wishing they would have taken Fredbeard before the Cowboys chose him. I sure am happy the Cowboys have The Beard over Long or Pugh. Fredbeard is playing well and it looks like the Cowboys have something and made the right decisions. Why some people can't be happy with that is a mystery to me. Fredbeard is playing like a legit 1st rd talent.

    The Cowboys were in no position to get very greedy during the draft. They took a slight gamble and traded down and it paid off big (so far). Sorry to burst the haters' bubble. The JJ haters will just have to wait until next year to criticize. They got to wait for their hindsight goggles to come in the mail.

    I'm fine with it. Only thing I would have done differently is not draft Escobar in the 2nd and draft the second DT the Panthers got. Forget his name. The one playing better than Star Loot.

    Yeah, it could have been a little more... however, the need for Frederick at center was so great that I think they just took what they could get and still feel good about Frederick being available.

    Can you imagine the outcry if they would have just gone ahead and picked Frederick at #18?

    You're probably mad that they didn't draft Tony Mandarich instead of Troy Aikman back in '89.

    That would be Kawann Short. He was a bit of a pet cat of mine. I thought he would go late in round 1, so I would have loved to take him in the 2nd (although he wouldn't have made it to our pick).

    The reason he slid into the 2nd when he had clear round 1 talent was that his motor ran a little hot/cold. Sometimes he would disappear in games when he should be dominating. I still really liked him though and he would be a welcome addition to the depleted 3-tech DT spot. I actually like him as a 3-tech better than Floyd.

    Oh well.

    I know Floyd did not have the most sacks in college but he did have 13 Tackles for Loss in last season. These tackles for loss are just as good as sacks.

    While I am nicely surprised by Frederick's performance, I believe Floyd is going to be a stud in NFL.
