    Drafting a guy at 60 with a torn Achilles is a much better mindset

    You need context in order to make this decision, if you look around in the 2nd and no one is similar than the cowboys can be the cowboys and take another injured bird under their wing. I feel like third rd is value for us 2nd rd is a gamble especially with our current defensive makeup.

    I know all surgeries have come a long way but I'm still more worried about an Achilles's injury to a CB. Does he come back to being the player he was before? And you have to wait for a year to see if its going to be any form of a recovery. I think he's a day 3 pick at best for most teams.

    Outside of microfracture surgery and nerve damage, Achilles injuries are probably the most worrisome injury to come back from especially for a skill position like CB.

    It certainly affected Kevin Smith, but techniques have advanced.

    Gavin Escobar made it back in less than a year. o_O

    That's extraordinarily unrealistic.

    Jaylon Smith should not have been a 2nd rounder.

    Cowboys don't have a 5th, would take chance with 4th. Sid Jones is a legit 1st rounder prior to injury. And that Achilles should heal up 100% or close enough but may take more than season and half.

    The Cowboys can't use a 4th on him. They can get a starter that they need in that round. He probably goes in the 5th because you don't know how he will recover from the injury.

    Iff you're expecting to get a starter at pick 133 you should lower your expectations. Yes it happens, but that is absolutely not what usually occurs that far into the draft.. By that point you're usually talking about players with significant flaws who need to be developed or are role players when they get in.

    They can get one in this draft. This draft is very strong. Especially at corner, wr, safety, and te.

    First-round prospect Sidney Jones tore his Achilles tendon during the last minutes of the Washington pro day last weekend. How does this affect his draft stock? Maybe not as much as you think. "He's off our Round 1 board if he can't play this year, but we're hearing it's maybe not that bad" is what one team told me. Another said they would likely knock down Jones "two to three rounds" if it was a complete tear.

    A routine Achilles injury could cost Jones his rookie season, putting him into a redshirt situation for 2017, but everyone heals differently. If his post-surgery report looks good, he could still be a late-first-rounder.

    That's where I'm at too. No earlier than that for a guy who won't play in 2017 and may not be 100% in 2018, or ever again.

    Not when the cupboard is as bare as it is at DE & CB. We could draft Charles Harris, Desmond King, Fabian Moreau, & Derek Rivers, and all would make extensive contributions to this team. We are THAT weak at those positions.

    Does this make him a mortal lock at 28?

    Corners in the Tampa-2 have to be good tacklers . I don't imagine we had a ton of interest before his injury.
