    much smarter pick then a WR , with how Lee has been it has been a position of concern . I was hoping you guys got a WR :( . But It is scary pick and risky because of his neck ... it might be missing a bunch of game like Lee. Maybe if you add them both together you get one solid LB

    Not going to try, we just gift wrapped the division to the Giants, once they get a motivated Dez after the draft it's a wrap.it's between them& Philly for the division. We had certain players we like somewhat fall into striking range& we didn't strike.smh.. Now get this they're going to be posters who pumps up the pick& claim he's Brian Urlacher 2 but anybody who knows football knows he is " Bobby Carpenter 2" mark my words 7-9 last place in the division

    first off not a reach he was rated the 3rd best LB in the draft.. i saw two go off the board before him so that left Evans or him.. how about this let him actually PLAY before we rip the pick?

    The report at Walterfootball.comindicated that Vander Esch — a possible first-round linebacker following a breakout 2017 season — had been removed from at least one team's board for medical reasons, and it added that four other teams believed he was a second-round talent.

    The WF report doesn't specifically mention which injury concerned teams most, as the 6-foot-4, 256-pound Vander Esch did suffer multiple injuries in his career at Boise State.

    It didn't matter who they selected, there's people on this board that just love to hate everything and anything that the Cowboys do. Hate away just don't understand why you're wasting your time posting. This world has enough doom and gloom for God's sake. Give the kid a chance before going all negative Nancy on him.

    This was a case of Dallas locking in on a player before the draft and sticking with him right up until the pick. I wonder what it would have taken to trade up and get James when he fell so far? And btw, beating Philly's scrubs doesn't seem worth it now, does it?

    In any case, this was not the best player available. It was drafting for need and for a player they fell in love with. Whenever Jerry does this he screws up the draft.

    I know they have doctors to look at his neck and all, but when you have 2 LBs who are also dealing with health issues why take a risk with a 3rd? I watched LVE at the combine and h looked less athletic and stiffer than the other LBs. Obviously, I am not a professional scout but this pick left me disappointed.

    This is why we are a chronically mediocre team.
    We think small.
    Pat yourself on the back, Jerry. What a surprise. You must be beaming, you old ***.

    He wasn’t a reach at all.

    He’s been ranked top 20 by almost every respected person I’ve seen.

    Vander Esch does not have any issues.

    Dallas even rechecked again today. He’s fine.
