    Kiper's a fraud? He's been doing the same thing since the first televised draft on ESPN back in 1981 and literally invented the whole idea of grading drafts. He usually grades us in the C range and how can you possibly argue given the fact we are about .500 over the last 20 years.
    He is on ESPN b/c he is a living legend.

    Everyone’s a fraud or an idiot if don’t agree or align with their homerism . Sad we still have fans who defend our dysfunctional leadership.

    Did you see the thread with the pic of Jerry holding up the draft chart to "prove" Tyler wasn't a need based reach? :lmao:

    april 28th...pete schrager mocks tulsa ot tyler smith in rd1.
    april 28th...lance zirlein mocks tulsa ot tyler smith to pick 27-tampa bay.
    draft day...broaddus says tulsa ot tyler smith is in play at pick 24.

    but keep playing pretend for appearances and fishing for likes...im sure theres something on twitter that needs posting.
    it takes no gutts to play a critic,bro!
    none.

    It was obviously tampered with. It had Utah beside his name .

    I’m not overly displeased with our draft. Said B-. Thought our 3rd and 4th round picks were great and liked the idea we took risk in 5th round.

    And we did address our two biggest needs in 1st and 2nd round . But it’s how we sell it based on the criticism that’s so appalling.

    You're confusing mocks with value, Rowdy. Mel and Lance might have mocked the reach of Tyler Smith but their value board didn't have him in their top 40.

    And the reason why the Cowboys are getting such low draft grades is because of those reaches in the 1st and 2nd round.

    I know it stings.

    pro bowlers.
    not reaches.
    but keep pretending...it gets you lots of likes among the miserable...which you seem to care alot about.
    wonder what the reason why daniel jeremiah mocked tulsa ot tyler smith to the titans at pick 26 in one of his last mocks...probably for...you know...likes n stuff.

    His net worth is 7 million dollars. Unfortunately that proves some idiots follow him.

    The talkin cowboys podcast said it’s a meat and potatoes draft with solid dudes. I see their point it’s a lot of guys who don’t suck .


    Whereas the last two years we got flash. Ceedee and Micah,

    I like this draft I hope it’s not like the 2007 special teams draft the worse one in nfl history. I understand how it sounds not sexy to draft dependable guys but that’s what we’re looking at.


    it is wild tho that they drafted someone who commits a ton on penalties lol

    Ya I'd have to say that's good info there and it's hard to argue against it.

    I like Mel and all his hard work that puts into the draft and he's really good entertainment but like most so-called "draft experts" they are way off many times when it comes to "draft grades".

    And Mel would be the first guy who agrees with you. Draft experts are wrong sometimes. Coaches are wrong sometimes. NFL scouts are wrong sometimes. The standard here is not perfection.

    To his credit, Mel is the only draft guru that annually publishes an article on his worst draft errors. I will say this, he's not wrong on the cowboy drafts very often. He usually grades us in the middle which is about where this team is over the past 20 years. So, while he may over rate or under rate a player on occasion, his overall draft grade is usually not far off the mark.

    Was trying to watch the ESPN feed from Vegas but between the lousy audio juggling midgets and Mel from home looking like a hostage video I gave up went the Ticket route .

    It’s so sad that our fans take the likes of Kiper as gospel and won’t even give these guys a chance.

    His last mock of the draft season is always based on what he’s hearing from his league sources.
