Jason Garrett mentioned in his inauguration speech about doing things "The Cowboy Way" under his coaching tenure. The 2011 Draft gave us an idea of what the Cowboy way is. 4 of the 8 players in the 2011 class were team captains in college. If you include DeMarco Murray who has served as a game-day captain for Oklahoma, the list includes 5 team captains. Jason Garrett mentioned after the draft that he wanted to draft the right guys. When asked what kind of players he wanted to stay away from he said: To me, this seems to rule out a few types of players in the draft. Guys with inconsistent motors and players who have put other things ahead of football, such as a substance abuse problem. The reason for this thread actually comes from a misconception about one player in this draft. Dontari' Poe has been linked and rumored to be a guy that Jason Garrett would want to avoid because of his lack of production at Memphis and his "workout warrior" label. I have come to the conclusion that this might not be the case at all. Listening to Michael Lombardi on the B.S. Report with Bill Simmons, Lombardi mentioned how Poe is a hard worker, loves the game, and wants to become a great football player. I have read some scouting reports that have attributed his inconsistent play to playing too many snaps. Another thing that was interesting about Poe is that he was a team captain at Memphis, which Coach Garrett obviously covets, and Poe also has the reputation of being very coach-able. With all of Poe's talent and desire to become a great football player, the rumors about Poe being the "apple of their (Dallas') eyes" could potentially be true.
