    So, if Surtain isn't drafted by Denver, Parson's not a Cowboy. Am I understanding this right?

    It’s long been confirmed that Dallas was taking a cb had one been available. Even though Parsons was rated higher on their board.

    Let's also question why if Parsons was top of their board he would not have been taken if the CB's had been there.

    This is why getting pressure players is better than CB's, especially this high in the draft. Ramsey is the exception, not the rule,

    So.........like Fredbeard and few others, it's another stroke of luck we have added a potentially elite player in Parson

    Jerry's special football talent of screwing up even when he does something correct.

    Drafting for need bites you in the rear. Our best picks were more chance than skill....ie. Zack Martin, Emmett Smith....now Parsons (hopefully).

    Exactly........Jerry's statement doesn't make a lot of sense. IF Parson was the BEST defensive player on your board, why were you taking a CB?

    It’s not screwing up. It’s the smart thing to do.

    The first round was brilliant again. Dez years ago fell in our laps. Lamb last year. And the best Defensive player where we traded back for another pick and still got him. It’s like Christmas folks.

    100%....hell, Diggs already has more career interceptions ( 5) in 2 years than Byron Jones had in 5 (2).

    Because the board is an evil necessity like a HC is to Booger. The board gives McClay and the scouts something to do.

    Guess he forgot getting in that reporter's face about Parsons being a fall back pick and inviting him to come in and look at the board?

    The one action that defies Parsons was the guy all along was the trade down to 12 and risking losing him. They were reliant on the NYG not being pissed about the PHL trade that netted them Smith that they wouldn't trade with another team other than CHI and they would go for Fields?

    There are always different boards with the Cowboys including the one in Booger's head where Manziel took the #1 position just because of the marketing.

    They lucked into Prescott and it looks like they did the same with Parsons. Think the Cowboys run D was going to improve with a CB in the 1st?

    Its really not. Keep beating that drum. Parsons was and is the BEST DEFENSIVE PLAYER in that draft. You take that over "need" or "positional value" all day every day and twice on Sunday.

    Because cornerback was a need......linebacker was a need....but not as pressing as corner.

    People are touting he's the best defensive player NOW but during the draft process I didn't see many people say that. There were just as many people saying Horn or Surtain were the best as well.
