Will McClay is not that good, deep dive into his drafting and you'll get to the root cause of the Cowboys problems. They draft poorly and it reflects as listed below. Absolute zero accountability, I never want to hear someone tell me that Will or the scouting team is doing a good job.


2018 Draft

Dallas Cowboys Leighton Vander Esch LB - Bust
Dallas Cowboys Connor Williams OG - Bust
Dallas Cowboys Michael Gallup WR - 3rd string ACL
Dallas Cowboys Dorance Armstrong DE - Bust
Dallas Cowboys Dalton Schultz TE - Really bad blocker.
Dallas Cowboys Mike White QB w/Jets
Dallas Cowboys Chris Covington w/Colts
Dallas Cowboys Cedrick Wilson WR - 4th string


2019 Draft

Draft Traded first to Oakland for Cooper, now he is off the team, because JJ is mad?
Dallas Cowboys Trysten Hill DT - Bust
Dallas Cowboys Connor McGovern OG - Bust
Dallas Cowboys Tony Pollard - Will be gone after 2022 season..
Dallas Cowboys Michael Jackson CB - Off the team since 2019. ? What? Bust
Dallas Cowboys Joe Jackson DE - Off the team since 2020. Bust.


2020 Draft

Dallas Cowboys CeeDee Lamb WR - Too many drops, will be a bust in 2023 and off the team.
Dallas Cowboys Trevon Diggs CB - Gave up too many yards, but INT are good.
Dallas Cowboys Neville Gallimore DT - Bust
Dallas Cowboys Reggie Robinson CB - Special Teams player? What?
Dallas Cowboys Tyler Biadasz C - Bust
Dallas Cowboys Bradlee Anae DE - Bust at Jets now.
Dallas Cowboys Ben DiNucci QB - LMAO BUST

You can't be serious. The Cowboys have been one of the better drafting teams in this period. Just look at the 2018 draft class, many solid players throughout.

You mean this draft class?

Outside of White, it was a strong class. Getting 4 starters and 2 key reserves a bad class?

Do you work for the Cowboys or a 3rd party affiliate? I do know for a fact that people are paid by the Cowboys to promote the brand and defend it. Not sure what reality or hidden agenda you're trying to push on fans. It was not a strong class at all. Michael Gallup is the only starter worth anything and he is a 3rd stringer. The TE isn't that great, deep dive and check the tape on Schultz. Connor Williams is the worst guard in football, if he is cut today, he will never get another job in the NFL... Don't even get me started on Vander Esch, total bust.. He will be a 4th string on a bad team that will pick him up.

If your goal was to look bad and ruin your credibility?

Gallup is a 3rd string WR.. Are you from space?

So you consider a starter like Lamb or Gallup 3rd string guys? That also means that Steele is 3rd string because he’s our 3rd OT end Nseke is 4th string.

Amazing logic…

What the hell…? Is this a serious thread?

Dallas’ drafts might be a little over hyped by some, but they are clearly in the top third of all teams when it comes to drafting.

The only bad draft class was 2019 IMO.
Which happens to every team from time to time. The defensive coaches got stuck on a DT in round 2 and the "versatile" guard they drafted in round 3 can actually only play one position-which is manned by a future HOF guard.
Pollard was a good pick but is getting misused by the coaching staff. Not a drafting issue there.


2018 they were right about LVEs talent but overlooked his medical condition with his neck.
Williams is an above average guard that has strength limitation and got too handsy last year. 1 out 4 years he had issues with penalties.
Gallup is a good outside receiver. Not a #1 but is a good #2.
etc...

That's a rough take. Armstrong isn't a "bust". He's a serviceable backup which is fine for where he was drafted. I wouldn't resign Schultz due to the fact he might get overpaid but he's a pretty good pick for where he was taken. Wilson? Exceeded his draft position, so another good pick. The LVE pick, yes, appears to be have been a waste.

Your assessment of the 2020 draft is laughable. One outs himself as a troll when they lament that Lamb drops the ball way too much. Those people are always surprised to find out that Lamb's drops are in line with many of his peers. So it's not like good WRs drop 2 balls a year and Lamb dropped 20.
