    How far does he fall?

    Where would you take him?

    Not before the 3rd if it were up to me. Needs to bulk up too.

    Jones certainly had no luck. That must hurt. Could be a good investment in the 3rd or 4th round. The Cowboys could use a high end CB.

    2nd round considering where the Cowboys are picking.

    No earlier than the fourth. I'm tired of taking guys who sit out a full year, who have injury issues coming into the league or who are potheads or have drug issues.
    Bruce Carter, Jaylon Smith, Randy Gregory, Sean Lee. Enough!

    Take a guy who will be available at the start of the season.

    Rightnow is a terrible mindset to have when drafting players. This isn't free agency.

    Not for nothing, but unless you draft a a CB in the first, any CB you draft will be 4th on the depth chart. And thats without resigning Carr or Claiborne. If there is one position we can afford a "stash" its CB

    I don't think that you can justify taking a player coming off of an Achilles tear any earlier than the fourth, especially a cornerback. Kevin Smith was a shell of himself after suffering the same injury.

    I liked him but wasn't enamored with him pre-injury. Now, with the injury he'll be gone for 2017. There's no way I'd spend a 2nd rounder on him; 3rd rounder at most.

    I would only consider it because I considered him the best CB prospect in this draft. The truth is I'd have to see who is there at 60 first.

    I wouldn't touch him until the 5th. This team needs every player taken in the 1st four rounds to make a contribution this year. I feel at least two of them should be edge rushers, & the other two DBs. WR, OT, & TE are distant needs that can be met in the later rounds or in UDFA, IMHO.

    I am not taking a CB who has torn achilles until the 6th or 7th round. Kevin Smith was never himself after the tear. I need players who can be on the field and not in trainer room.

    I just have a fear of this specific injury. It's often the case where it's 2 years before the player gets back the explosiveness they had before the injury. 1 year before being able to play, and another getting back to what they were. There's also an increased risk of rupturing it again and that the player may not ever get that same level of explosion back. I just can't justify the risk in a deep draft before the 3rd round. He probably won't be there with so many teams having multiple picks in the 2nd and 3rd, but that's something I'm willing to accept, even for a player I had so high.

    I don't think a healthy Sidney Jones is light years ahead (if at all) of healthy CB's we could get in 3-4 this year. I would pass.
