When were you glad the team didn't get who you wanted to draft?

    I was so excited when he fell to us, I couldn't believe we passed. Took a good day or two for it to sink in.

    He is on his way to being one. He wasn't coming in for treatments for his injury last year. There was one Zimmer PC where he was asked about Floyd's timetable to return, and he said he didn't know because he hadn't seen him in weeks.

    I would say that's a bad sign.

    Alabama safety Mark Barron. We traded up for Claiborne and I thought we were trading up for Barron. I was so disappointed. Neither has been all that good

    In 2012 I wanted Mark Barron. Dallas drafted Mo Claiborne, so now we can all cry about missing out on Luke Kuechly, Fletcher Cox and Stephon Gilmore.

    Yup. We all suffered through some bad play by Claiborne, then last season he finally got pretty good. Then left the team. Not worth the trade up.

    There's always at least one guy I like for us that ends up being a bum every year.

    I remember being annoyed we drafted Escobar over Margus Hunt in 2013.

    Margus Hunt has 1.5 sacks total in 4 NFL seasons.

    manziel. he would have been fun to watch on the cowboys. i don't think he would have fallen apart like in cleveland. there's more reason to stay around in dallas than in cleveland.

    When we were up I was 110% sure that was our pick.

    Barron has settled in pretty nicely now as a hybrid safety/linebacker. The Cowboys aren't creative enough to consider using a player that way, so he probably would have been a complete bust here.
