You know me homie. I'm a happy man.
I'm anxious to see how this group does, one thing that kind of baffles me is the second RB pick.
They said he was in consideration much higher in the draft and with him still there late they decided to take him.
why did we trade back? were we lookig for value? not happy with the talent? what was the thinking? hhelp those teams do better than us?
We seriously drafted a Michael jackson and a Joe Jackson?
Wasn't there a latoya Jackson?
They traded back because the messed up and took the rb first instead of the DB they coveted
I would pay big money if just once if they got a WHO DIS? on one of these calls.
Rod Smith better bring it.
to get extra picks
NFL.com gave us A’s. Most of our posters like our draft. So what’s your problem? If you never get enjoyment from the Cowboys, why be a fan?
We took too long picking a safety and we could have gotten a camp bod to challenge for the back up RB slot without using a draft pick. Other than that, a pretty good effort.
Excellent thread!!! I appreciate you putting together all of the vids. Now my lazy butt can get an idea of what it is we picked up.
I admit that I had very limited advance knowledge of these guys and most have nice highlights. Although, I would note if you don’t have a nice highlight package that you are probably not a draftable player.
I think my biggest doubts are Hill, Pollard and Smith. They may turn out fine but thy are probably why my grade is lowered.
Hill plays how I like tackles to play by being able to penetrate and cause disruption. He also has the measurables I like. But there are a lot of questions to him. If he is not a potential good starter it really hurts this class. Not counting him out but the questions give me pause.
I don’t get Pollard in the fourth. Seems like a lot for a guy to fill the Dunbar and Lucky roles. I am sure Dallas likes him but I would have preferred other directions in the fourth round. We will see how he looks in camp and how Dallas plans to get him the ball without taking it away from their best player.
Smith highlights look good but I am really disappointed after a deep safety free agent class and draft class that we are basically in the same spot. I don’t think you can have an elite defense with our starting safeties. Maybe Smith makes the team over Frazier or Ioaka and provides special team help as he develops and we see if he has any starting potential but I was hoping for more at the safety position.
So I would say I am intrigued by the athleticism and size/physicality of a lot of our draft and UDFA players and look forward to seeing them in camp, but some of the questions above would give me some doubt on the class.
Rod is a free agent that they apparently don't want back.
Is Pollard left-handed? Little bit of a bonus if he is, lots of runs to the left in his highlight vid.
He's got some leap in him that's for sure.
LOL... i meant the a&M safety Wilson. My bad
Nfl.com gave giants a B for Daniel jones
Weber instantly replaces and upgrades RSmith...... DJax is a JAG and Pollard is RB/WR/KR
We needed some depth and Weber is a classic Ohio St RB.... he is legit
We probably still need to sign a couple RBs
Ah, ok, that makes more sense now.....thanks for explaining it.
