Well here is my Draft ReDo.

Im okay with how the Draft went still would have done some things different that could have landed us potentially more impact players without giving up a 5th to trade up for a stiff corner that wont make the roster.

Its no secret the Chiefs would have traded up with us to grab Mazi themselves. I would have taken that trade and fleeced them their third (92nd overall).
That trade would have likely gone through according to draft value chart and draft history. Cowboys 26th was worth 700P to Chiefs 31st 600. The Chiefs third round pick was worth 132P so that would have gotten 700P to 732P. A standard trade in that range.

I would have drafted this way and taken into account if the guys where actually available when we would have picked.

31. Steve Avila LG TCU
Best Guard in the Draft. Shores up the LG Spot for the next decade. Allows Tyler Smith to play LT and take the reigns from Tyron who is close to done and will likely miss a lot of time again like he always did the last years. Avila also is from Arlington Texas. Home kid.
Avila went 36th overall to the Rams
58. Zacch Pickens DT South Carolina
top 10 overall recruit nationally. He played in all 12 games as a reserve in 2019 garnering Freshman All-SEC Team accolades (16 tackles). Pickens started seven of 10 games played in 2020 (35 tackles, 2.5 for loss with one sack) and then started all 13 games in 2021 (38 tackles, five for loss with four sacks). He posted a career-high 42 tackles in 2022 (four for loss with 2.5 sacks) and broke up three passes in 12 starts
Athletic interior defender with experience and length as a gap-control tackle but the quickness and play traits that might be better-suited to attacking upfield. Pickens has a disruptive first step that creates advantages for him as both a run defender and pass rusher. He plays with harmonious hands and feet to elude blockers or play off them, but he’s likely to get moved around by NFL drive blockers. Pickens has the ability to play both tackle spots in a one-gapping front and has rotational value with the potential to see starter’s reps.
Went 64th to the Bears.
90. DeMarvion Overshown LB Texas
Loved the Pick. Multi Tool that fits perfect to DQ system. Jayron Kearse like playmaker that can play Safety or Linebacker. Relentless motor and playmaker. Big hitter.
92. Darnell Washington TE Georgia
You dont find this kind of super athletic freak of nature often that blocks like an elite O-Liner and has talent as a receiver mismatch. Especially when you want to commit running the football more like the Cowboys just said everywhere. 1st-2nd Round Talent drops because of medical red flag. Reading into it there never was any major damage to his knees. He made the full combine and doesnt have any injury right now. At 92 you take the risk and reward game. Nakobe Dean, Georgia LB dropped last year because of medical flags and we saw how that turned out for the Eagles.
Washington went 93rd to the Steelers.
129. Villiami Fehoko DE San Jose State
Loved the Pick. Relentless motor, high energy guy that was highly productice in college. Can never have enough of those on your D-Line. Also can bulk up to play 3T.
169. Eric Gray RB Oklahoma
Decisive, creative runner with the size and skill set for three-down consideration on the pro level. 4-Star Recruit and Top 100 Player coming out of HS. He is a reliable threat out of the backfield with soft hands and a willingness to block. Gray has the potential to find work quickly as a three-down backup with future starter potential. second-team All-Big 12. 1366 Rush Yards and 11 TD in 2022 and 230 receiving yards.
Went 172 to the Giants.
212. Brad Robbins P Michigan
Finesse punter who will be much better at pinning opponents near their own end zone than bailing his team out with power. He punts with much better hang-time than we are used to seeing from college punters and landed nearly half of his punts inside the 20-yard line in 2022.
Robbins finished his college career No. 2 in Michigan career punting average (42 avg) and the second-best single-season average of 46.33 (2021 season). He’s also fifth in program history in total punt yards (7,698).
This past season, Robbins booted 43 punts for 1,818 yards (42.3 avg) with 21 fair catches, 16 downed inside the 20, and none went into the end zone for a touchback.
Im done with Bryan Anger. He went from elite to dogpoo in one season. I watched Robbins a lot in College. Hes one of the smartest punters ive ever seen.
Went 217 to the Bengals.
244. Bryce Ford-Wheaton WR West Virgina
Ford-Wheaton is a big, long wideout specializing in downfield jump-ball victories. He’s a high-riser with an above-average wingspan, but he rarely slips past press coverage easily and fails to separate like he should relative to the blazing speed he showed at the NFL Scouting Combine. Ranked 1st out of All WR in the Combine in the Athletic Tests. 6'4 221 lbs monster that runs a 4.38 40 yard dash, 41 inch vertical. He led the Mountaineers with 62 receptions (675 yards, 10.9 per) and seven receiving scores in 2022. Can also be a special teams impact player. Actually went undrafted which was surprising to many as he had a 4th Round grade on most experts board.

So in other words, you wanted to make Chris Vaughn cry for a different reason.

I respect it.

I don't hate this but the Nakobe Dean thing doesn't make much sense, because he couldn't get on the field for the Eagles last year.

Whatchu Talkin' Bout, Willis?

Nobe Dean only played 34 snaps all season and 9 total snaps in the postseason on defense.

He did play significant snaps on special teams...
