That is true if you think the guy you draft at 4 is going to be that huge a difference maker but I don't see a player there at 4 who is going to make any significant difference in where we pick next year by himself while a QB could make a huge difference in a couple years
If a Dware type pass rusher was there I might see it different
I'm not thrilled with anyone in the top 5 personally I would trade down. Bosa tested positive for pot prior to the 2015 college season and was suspended. That's likely to scare off the Cowboys who already have a pot head in Gregory. Heard an interview with Bosa the other day and he sounded like he just got through smoking a joint. He reminds me of Sean Penn in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Jack is coming off a significant injury and the Cowboys have had terrible luck drafting injured LBs. They haven't had much luck drafting LBs period. As for Goff and Wentz they carry the same gamble all QBs carry coming out of college. I've said many times I'm not taking a QB with a top 5 pick unless I don't have a QB and am desperate for one. If Jerry honestly believes what he keeps preaching that Romo has 5 years left no way is he going to draft a QB with the 4th overall pick and have them sit until their late 20's.
No one knows how long Romo has but what we do know is when he's healthy he's still one of the better QBs in the league. It's easy to pull the trigger on a QB in the top 5 when you don't have a franchise QB or the one you have is showing signs of decline. The smart move for the Cowboys is to trade down picking up at least a #2 and using one of their #2's on a QB or packaging one of them with another pick and moving back into the first round and taking a QB. Our first pick has to play next season they can't be standing on the sidelines carrying a clipboard for the next 2+ years.
