    After looking through countless mocks and doing them myself over the past few months, I must say we have came away with one of our dream mocks that would never happen. This is the best draft we’ve had in quite some time. The zeke draft was great but we picked #4 so it was kind of hard to mess that pick up. We got a top 5 talent that fell to 17 and a top 20-25 talent that fell to 51! Ready to see these rooks develop

    I thought our first 3 pick were excellent, then I thought we might drop the ball, but NO! Our Later picks have been Awesome!
    Everyone of these guys can contribute immediately.
    I especially like the DE from Utah. Can you say intensity and technique. Polar opposite of Taco, and we got him in the 5th round.

    I did about 300 mock drafts just during the quarantine alone and think that the real draft turned out better than all of them. Me likey!

    I see 5 picks in the top 100 talent pool.

    Home run....5 times.

    Will McClay for the Draft King.

    This draft reminds me of a late-night infomercial.
    What if I told you
    You could get a top-10 player at 17
    A top 30 player at 51
    And a top 40 player at 82:flagwave:

    But hold on. If you call in the next 30 minutes.
    You also get
    A top 100 player at pick123:)
    A top 100 player at pick 146o_O
    And a top 100 player at pick 179:omg:

    Cowboys crushed this one:flagwave:

    Zero complaints. Maybe missing out on a safety but hard to sub out one pick for a safety.

    If anyone did this mock you would call them a damn fool. I've snubbed mocks half this good.

    Like everyone else in this thread, on paper we killed it this year. Addressed our needs on defense, didn't overreach anywhere.

    5 stars.

    Could you imagine adding any of these after draft?

    jamal adams- next years pick
    Malik hooker- next years pick
    Oj Howard- next year pick

    Everson griffin or clowney.

    Talk about hype going into season

    this is true, but every draft there’s always reach picks and head scratchers. This draft is dead on

    all that for just 5 easy payments of $19.99. Call in the next 2 minutes and we’ll throw in a top 150 player in the 7th.

    I was probably one of the people roasting you.
    I'm more than happy to be wrong though.

    Two comments, positive and negative:

    Positive - I learned long ago that while individual posters and pundits aren't always right, when you get the vast majority of them saying "good job" or "that's terrible", the consensus is usually right. When a team gets lots of good draft grades, they usually end up being happy with the class. There is a strong correlation. This draft has been universally loved. The fans and the pundits love it. The absolute worst case for this class, IMO, is multiple contributors.

    Negative - I'm really not seeing anyone taken as being highly likely to be a franchise player. These guys all strike me as complementary players. That works for Dallas right now because they have their core pieces but we should keep that in mind before we go too far with lauding the group.

    Overall, I'm just as happy as everyone else for what has happened. I'll take it a step further in that this is a great sign for McCarthy working with Jerry and many of us being right about the damage JG and RM were doing. This might not just mean a good class this year. It might be a sign of this happening regularly.
