    My biggest gripe is not taking the DE Jermaine Johnson from FSU. Not only a position of need (with Randy Gregory gone), but an incredible value pick at #24.

    I guess the Cowboys felt they'd have a better chance of getting a starting defensive end than an OG when they pick in the second round. So they opted to secure their OL pick first, instead of the other way around. That's the only way I can make sense out of this. Time will tell.

    Is that why we picked Connor Williams? Fact is that we got the 7th OT off the board in round 1. Thats never a good value.

    We're talking about compensation vs production of the two players. Finances are irrelevant and Dallas could've made it work with Coop. Instead they traded him for next to nothing.

    I want to hear the secret Audio call when he was being drafted.
    Jerry….we want to draft you, but you must hold less than your predecessor…
    Tyler….yes I can keep it to under 5 per game…

    First off Trysten was a second round selection. Second of all, he had no prepossessing traits, wasn’t particularly big or fast. He just had a quick, first step that caught the eyes of a senile Rod Marinelli; the most overrated D coordinator of all time.

    Will McClay looks sad because we drafted outside the power 5.

    McCarthy said Smith got high marks from Philbin when they did classroom work.

    I bet all their first round graded players were gone. Smith in a perfect draft would a early second rounder.

    We have depth at DE?? We literally have a bottom 5 DT group........maybe bottom 2. You don't draft projects in round 1. You draft starters. There were 6 OTs that went ahead of him. Why? B/c he is a project.

    Depth at DE? They have Lawrence and a bunch of JAGs. The position needs legitimate talent and they passed on arguably the best or 2nd best edge rusher.

    Why do people equate warm bodies with depth?
