I have to say I am thankful they didn't do that. The teams that waited until the 2nd round look much smarter today. Heck even the Cowboys look smarter nabbing a good one in the 3rd.

You build from the trenches out.
Twas a very deep WR class.
This has been a perfect draft for those that would rather fill needs than take the best player. You got what you wanted.
I believe the value at BPA was as close as need based, Im good with that if good talent fits the need.
This team drafted in the 24 slot, and have drafted well considering the draft stock and capital available.

Lol. Mauling guard (most penalized player in college football) , Sam Williams (typical boom or bust character issues second round cowboy selection) and a good WR. He’s the only pick I’m not mad about. Like you say below. You build from the trenches out. I would have preferred Jermaine Johnson, Travis Jones (this team has done nothing to get better against the run) and Tolbert with Salyer in the 4th. That covers all positions but hey what do I know

yep I would have taken Johnson and jones.

top 3 defense instantly. Worry about oline next year.

I'll stop being doom and gloom when this organization gives me a reason to think otherwise.

You would NEVER blindly trust anything else in your life that has failed over and over for 26 straight years so why do you blindly trust the Cowboys?

"That truck hasn't ran for 26 years, let's take it on a cross county vacation, right?"

"That amusement park ride has been getting stuck for 26 years now. I'm sure it's fine now."

"I don't know bud, that plane's engine has been sputtery for 26 years now, but I'm sure it'll be fine now. Wheels up!"

Do any of you see how ridiculous your logic of "blind trust" is? Expect better and make them earn your trust.
Help I’ve fallin down and they wont help me up

So they all suck? Got it!
Not at all. I’m just pointing out the truth. Do you trust this coaching staff to coach up Smith? Sorry after sitting out free agency I don’t think a project and putting faith in Philbin to fix his penalty issues is a great strategy. That’s all I said.

We got a penalty ridden o-lineman, unkown quantitty DE, and WR from a small school in the 3rd round...Yes I am sooo excited after we lost a decent guard in the offseason, a pro-bowl wide receiver, monster DE, and the rest of our team got older.

Got our mauling guard, pass rushing DE, and Smooth, fast receiver in the 3rd.

Werent those all the positions most were complaining about?

Just trying to check the pulse here.
Hey, Stephen Jones, these boys need to get out on the field before we get out the anointing oil…

Dude doom and gloomers will be doom and gloomers till success brings them out of it.

:laugh: it's like you people live on another planet. Doom and gloom has nothing to do with a position or a free agent leaving or any of that. It's the clown running the show is the same clown who's been running the show for 30 years, and the team hasn't won anything meaningful in 26 years. 26 years.

That’s fair. I just don’t trust philbin to coach penalties out of smith when he couldn’t with Williams is all. And yes exactly. The offense won’t be fixed this season with Cooper gone. So. Build around parsons and make the defense awesome.

which has nothing to do with the draft this year. I’m sure if you turned in your fan card no one would mind.

Williams sucked buddy. You can’t Unteach suck.

we don’t need cooper.

smith is already a monster in the run game. He’s playing guard, not LT.

Well yeah of course. Let’s see. I just wish they built the defense up more. Doesn’t matter about the OL if the defense is giving up 100 plus on the ground a game. The offense won’t see the field lol. Parsons can’t do everything.

He's pretty much coming to one of the most undisciplined and penalized teams in the league, so I can't say I trust the coaching to coach the penalties out of him. Maybe he'd work in New England under Bellichick, but the best players on our team seem to be the ones that come ready out of the oven.
