Horrific pick.

These players were available right after Wright:

Elijah Molden
Ifeatu Melifonwu
Baron Browning
Jay Tufele
James Hudson
He's actual identical on tape to Ifeatu. Great cover three corner, but struggles on slants or anything ran inside. Good against the run, though.

Of course.

However, there are some picks that don't appear to make sense. Gavin Escobar, for instance. This one appears to be on line w/ that one.
Well I agree gavin didnt make sense, but to be fair gavin couldnt get on the field much because of witten.
Also I think tony didnt like gavin.

Wright makes sense in that he has the size and length speed, that quinn wants, and he thinks he can coach him up into a good corner.
only time will tell.

No. Awful pick. The fact they took him over Melifonwu, who is projected to start almost immediately, is the safer prospect, AND has a higher ceiling due to his athletic prowess, is so, SO asinine.

I hope the kid plays well, but it is an unforgivably dumb pick.

LOL I was thinking the same. As soon as I watched the highlights on Ifeatu, I knew for sure we screwed up.

That's not an answer, how much film?, how many games did you watch, what info into Dan Quinn defense do you have that nobody else have to know it's a wasted pick. It's not about arguing, back up your reason that it's a wasted pick, you emphatically deemed it's a wasted pick as fact.

Obviously you either can't read or you just don't understand the English language, so go pick an argument with somebody else. I'm only voicing my opinion like everyone else does here. If you don't like it, that's just tough bananas. Cry me a river.
Did you forget your medication or something? Go take a valium or go argue with someone who cares.

This is the most glaring pick in our draft, of not the entire draft. Therefore leading me to believe he will be an absolute stud. Lol

I'm based in the UK so didn't stay up beyond the Joseph pick to the early hours of the morning. Looked on my phone the next day and thought who?

3 picks in the 3rd and I thought the choice would be either a), 3 solid picks or b), package picks up and get back in the 2nd. I didn't realise there was a 3rd option c), wasting 3 potentially valuable picks on reaches but guess I was wrong.

Just hope Wright doesn't start reading this forum as that will knock his confidence before he even gets started here. I can see this poll being 100% no and the Cox poll being 100% yes by the time people are done voting.

Light weight ;)....morning celtic brother.

I suppose they had a draft plan and after the no.10 trade down gave a joker pick to spend. As has been mentioned they must have been high on Wright and there's a chance that they knew another team was equally as high on him.

I voted no as i'm hoping/trusting the FO know better than us fans, especially as fans fixate on names and not projectable talents that could play in the NFL.

Man, hard to explain to someone who does not want to understand.

Drafting is about picking prospects. You mix BPA w/ Need and several teaspoons of sunshine and whiskey and you make the best decision you can w/ what's available.

Leaving better players on the board is generally not a good way to draft.


Better players according to whom? they draft according to their draft board, they identified a player that they felt was the better player that fit what they wanted? that's what you just said, so what's the problem?

Seahawks & Raiders are running the same scheme so they would likely also have been interested in Nahshon Wright.

Since they got Jabril Cox, its a moot point. If Jabril Cox would have been drafted in the 3rd or 4th by another team beside Dallas, it would be the worst pick in Cowboys 3rd round history.

Watch our third-round pick get smoked by our fifth-round pick at the 1:46 mark. At least he's long.

No.

This logic that if you like a player go grab him when you can is pretty silly because then if you liked him so much, why not grab him in the 2nd? Or the 1st?

Yes, that's silly. And yes the answer is that the kid isn't good enough to be a 1st or 2nd round pick and likely would be there later in the draft. So in that sense, the Cowboys applied draft value to the kid. But for some reason, they panicked at the end of the 3rd and took him there when they likely could have had him in the 4th or even 5th. Was he that vital a player to their success that they had to take him when he did?

Yes.
In the 7th round or so. Yes.
Teams that run that scheme would clearly value someone with his traits more than other teams. And although Dane Brugler gave Wright a 7th round grade, Broaddus after the draft gave him a 5th round grade. Cavanaugh gave him a 4th/5th. None liked him at 99. But it shows how people see guys differently and they aren't even grading to fit a scheme like nfl teams do.

I also left out the Chargers as a team that runs the same scheme.

If they are evaluating poorly, they are wasting resources that could be better spent elsewhere. Since this is a common theme for this org, it's easy to think they're still doing it.

No team is batting a thousand. The Cowboys have been one of the best drafting teams since McClay started running things. Nobody knows how Wright will pan out right now.
