    I like Toney and think he can be a good player.

    But he’s no Slater or Parsons.

    He's even smaller. Biggest reason I didn't like him in the draft. Super quick & elusive, though.

    Heck, look no further then the team that drafted him us. They can spin it all they want, but if Surtain or Horn was available I believe we would have passed on Parson ourselves. Sometimes being lucky is better then smart.

    Stop it. Just stop. The giants are morons for not drafting him. The fact he sat out for a year is why people passed and we got him. Stop trying to further your agenda for saying he was a horrible pick for the value because he’s in the running for DPOY now and you look silly. Watch the cotton bowl. Everyone knew about his pass rush abilities. And then after his combine? Lol you’re literally grasping at Straws yet again. Just say. I was wrong. Parsons is a beast it’s not hard. Generational talent. “Not good value”

    Honestly, this is a foolish question. They haven't played a season, Katarina been hurt ask year, and Parsons Nadu be defensive player of the year. That is like asking if those 4 teams that passed on Jordan made a mistake.

    I'm just thankful Micah is a Cowboy. We may have got lucky that he fell to us, but being lucky is not a bad thing.

    No question

    Just ask yourself this: knowing what they know now, would the Giants do it again?

    Heck no

    No they didn't. EVERY DRAFT there is some player that goes 20 or late that ends up a HOF. You can't say every team blew it, because you never know.

    We will not know the answer for sure until we find out what New York will get from Chicago's 1st round pick.

    It's Toney plus Chicago's pick.

    That's more of a Giants question than a Cowboys question. We have Parsons so what do we care if the Giants failed?

    That was the best thing that happened for us. Teams knew going into this draft that it was going to be difficult because the tendency is to rate those who didn't play lower than those who did. Of course, there was some players who didn't opt out who hurt their draft stock. But with a player like Parsons, if he had played at Penn State like he has been for us (and they had moved him to end, like I've read they were planning to do), there's no way we would have gotten him.

    They failed miserably the day they hired Jason Garrett as OC, in part to “groom” Daniel Jones… They probably set Jones back years and by years, I mean about .0001 seconds after the Big Bang…

    Given their recent offensive line troubles it is pretty surprising they passed on Slater. Glad they did though.

    Giants defense with Parsons would be really good. They could have also really used Slater.

    They hit in the second round with the OLB/DE they picked. He and Parsons would have made a formidable pair.

    IMO the only thing that concerned me about Parsons was some of the off the field talk that made it out there. To be fair, when your drafting that high you don’t want to a kid who creates problems that stand in the way of the elite talent. But the kid was a top 5 talent. And that’s before anyone knew about the pass rushing ability. How freakish is his skill set ? The tools to be an All Pro backer and pass rusher. This is a talent you build around on defense.
