You might. You can find offensive lineman in later rounds, it is possible. We currently have only two first round lineman in the projected starting line up and our line figures to be one of our strengths (if healthy). We needed to inject talent on the D. Basically every position needed an upgrade.

That’s a little bit a spin in semantics

If you could regularly find great LB in the second then no one would take them in the first
LB is a position you can generally get a starter quality player in the second compared to other positions but no one regularly gets a great LB in the second
Also have to Factor in the Mentality of the Man. . . Parsons is an Alpha which was apparent during His Press Conference . . . He was holding Court and He was at ease and charismatic. . . He was out shinning Jerry and Stephen and Big Mike really had nothing to add they were all just enjoying the show.

This is the leader The Cowboys have been lacking for years (I am not talking that "MASTERS DEGREE" in Press Relations "Say" all the Right Things type manufactured Persona that some mistakenly perceive as Leadersip.

I am talking about that Ray Lewis Alpha Malevtake over a room with your mere presence and oh yeah He just so happens to run a 4.3

The Man attended Line Backer U and tore it up. Sean Lee may not Know Him but Arrington has had Him under His Wing.

To me this Man is anti Hot Boys and all those Clownish Personas They all got lost in the Hype . . . This Man is gonna bring a New Culture that is required for a Championship.

Will He Bring a Title? Who knows? But He will bring a different Culture which will shape this team for years to come.

I am not sure of Slaters Personality . . . But I wouldn't trade Micah for anyone else in this Draft. . . and if you still wanna play the what if game then you are harboring something you need to let go.

In the next 4 years of Micah's Rookie contract there will be many OL to choose from but Only one Micah.

Besides Slater has short arms most likely a Guard . . . why would you chose Him over Micah

That’s great news. No holdout for camp. I wonder what the money looks like. 4 years 12-14

When was the last time Cowboys even had a rookie hold out ?
That's just not their cup of tea.

But what's even more impressive this time around is they did this so very early,.. instead of waiting a day or so before opening starting day of training camp.

I think that's position-specific too though. Like WR franchise tag is 20+, whereas I don't know if any non-edge-rush-specialist LBers are that high. So Devonta at pick 12 may have still been pricier

I think it is slotted by where they were drafted, not position. #1 gets the most of course, but 22 gets more than 23. I don't know if there is an overlap in the slotting though. Or if if each pick has it's range. Or it was how it used to be set up.

Agreed. I honestly don’t remember the last time but at least we don’t have to get down to the wire before camp like you said. A lot of people would be wondering what’s going on and why are they cutting it so close

We barely get them signed every year.

Now do you think you will find another Larry Allen? Chin is a decent comparison- he is going to be that hybrid LB, has been dominant and was taken in the 2nd. When you regularly find great LBs in the 2nd that first round pick has to be used accordingly.
Well you chase that theory and you team will suck in no amount of time.
A high level pick is an opportunity to strike for a chance of elite talent, and it is not position dependent.
At 10 we had an opportunity to grab transitional talent, trade back pick up an additional pick and come out of this draft with Parsons,, this "theory" is busted long time ago man.
