    No way anyone who even supported the pick would know he was this good. I am stunned and loving it.

    A lot of us were wrong about that pick.

    I am definitely not patting myself on the back, but I was all in on LVE before the draft. It seemed like the team really tipped their hand weeks prior to the draft that they were going to be drafting him. Was really excited about the pick and wanted him over Calvin Ridley or anyone else at that spot. Still never expected him to be playing at this level so early. Thrilled at how he is playing and couldn’t be happier.

    I. Love. It. I watched SO many people prematurely call him a bust for months after he got drafted. I just laid back in the cut and waited because I always knew the type of player he was. I literally watched him take over games for Boise State.

    And I am not trying to pretend to be some player/draft guru, because I'm definitely not, but when you see certain players you just know.

    I am right there with ya. Didn’t want the Cowboys to draft him and was pretty bummed when they did. So glad I was wrong.

    Same here, I thought he was a bit soft. He is anything but, what a terrific pick.
    If you redo the draft he goes top ten.

    It takes a big fan base to admit when they were wrong. :)

    Good of you and others to say... I was the guy from Boise who watched him for two years at BSU and attended his pro day. I told everyone before and during the draft that guys that big don't move that quick, and guys that have as many tackles as he had (even in the Mountain West conference) have tremendous instincts. I didn't think he would be this productive this fast, but knew he was a far better prospect than Rashaan Evans or Ridley, notwithstanding their SEC pedigree. We will look back in a year or two and wonder how on earth he slipped to the 19th pick.

    Hey Man! What his current status?
    As ,after that one contact / stop on the play, he went to his base( on his hands& knees) and remained there ,slowly gathering info from his physical peripheral.

    *That's never a good thing to SEEo_O

    Give credit to the scouts. Broaddus thought the Cowboys were going to draft him early in the process. That's the BSU PIPELINE.

    Occasionally I feel smug about this but I didn't think he'd be this good this fast.

    I’m just pretty surprised how much company I have! I fogured a couple other people may have joined me in saying they were wromg nut not this many. It’s kind of bitter sweet though, I love Sean Lee but LVE will be his demise. I know that’s the way it goes but it doesn’t make it easy.

    Very cool. I don't mind saying and I know that I have lately that I was fully onboard with him even prior to the pick. Just your average big time fan that has spent way too much time following the ups and downs of our D Cowboys. Now we need the QB!

    #55 was the guy I was adamant about scooping up in the first round, just because of the overpressured player #50 & his seasonal history.

    * and I wasn't shy about my bleatings for him eithero_O
