Now I know everyone will say that we need to wait several years to evaluate and that the scouting depts know more than all us armchair scouts but keep in mind that 30 something scouting depts passed on Tom Brady until the 6th, Jason Witten until the 3rd, and some idiot took Quincy Carter in the 2nd. The scouts picks are merely best guesses that only slightly more informed than a lot of posters here and I would actually have preferred a lot of mocks (even if some of the picks would've been considered reaches) that were posted on this board as opposed to the utter disappointment we witnessed this weekend. That said, here's why I think this draft was a colossal waste of picks. (I hope to heck I'm wrong about this draft and some gems emerge...) 1. No immediate contributors: Granted we didn't need a whole lot but did need a few players that could contribute right away...like a KR/PR, some speed at WR, a CB and/or S,....a some depth at other positions. But looking through the list of players we chose, I have a hard time seeing any of them contributing this year, and certainly little more than on special teams. We needed an injection of speed somewhere but got nothing despite numerous speedsters being available during numerous picks. 2. We let players go we wanted without trying to get up to get them: The word on BSPN was that the three players we wanted in the 2nd started flying off the board right before we picked so what do we do...sit there with 11 picks and end up trading down for one more meaningless pick in the 5th. 3. 11 rookies are unlikely to make our final roster and that's without taking into account the UDFAs, so to go along with point 2, why not trade up for who you want, or.......trade for some quality picks next year? 4. Round 4 pick for a third-string QB are you serious?!? Would've made more sense to me to try to get an extra second and third for next year and make a run at a QB that has real potential to challenge Romo. I hope I'm wrong, but I'll be surprised if McGee is on our roster four years from now...that and I believe we probably could've gotten him at least a round later. 5. A kicker?!? for what? kickoffs? So now we must use a roster spot for an extra kicker just to kickoff? I know its important but from all I've read, Folk can put it in the endzone on ko's if the coverage team doesn't suck and force him to directional kick. And oh btw, if he's to challenge Folk....that just seems ridiculous, Folk was one of the best in the league last year. 6. We draft CBs and DBs, and we did need a few for depth....but why pass on Sean Smith, a dynamic player with great size that might push to start instead of hoping and praying to hit the lottery on another late round and 401st ranked CBs? We also pass on Rashad Johnson (yeah I know lots of others did too) but I tend to put some stock in the fact that a guy was the smartest, best player on the defense of a national powerhouse program who continually made plays. 7. We got NO playmakers: Our rivals got better. Philthy got faster...yikes (and they already put a whoopin on us with last year's talent). And the gints got a 6'6 touchdown machine that I'm sure we'll have a terrible time covering in the redzone twice a year for the next decade. Meanwhile, we got no one that is going to scare anyone or help us put points on the board...this despite there being an array of speedsters that we passed on who also might've competed for playing time with the heavily overrated Miles Austin and Crayton. 8. Bottom line is that we had a TON of picks yet didn't get noticeably better with this draft. If any player from this draft contributes on anything beyond special teams, I will be pleasantly surprised. I know STs are important and ours were bad, but you don't spend an entire draft on them. Every pick left me scratching me head (except for the Hamlin pick). And I hope they all turn out great but I'm not counting on it. Yeah yeah I know we'll have to wait and see...but I really think we blew this draft.
