    This may be an unfair or incorrect conclusion, but it appears he can't play. He was invisible this year, discussed switching positions and back, and now we had a heavy CB focused draft with guys of similar measurables.

    My question is you hear all the time that teams draft players and they know right away they made a mistake when they bring them into camp. Do you think that was the case for Robinson or if it happened over time. The hit rate for 4th round picks in not great, but it appears they are already marking that pick up as a sunk cost.

    If he’s good enough, he’ll play. If he’s not, he won’t.

    Simple as that. The NFL is a pay for performance workplace like any other business entity.

    I wouldn't be so sure.

    Robinson is sorta the x-factor. If he can contribute in a meaningful way then that's a huge add in my book.

    So what were Rod Marinelli and Jason Garrett paid for?

    There seems to be minimal confidence in him considering we drafted 3 corners. But I wouldn’t count him out...special teams matters a lot.

    Well, he has this off season to prove himself.

    but yeah he’s a 4th rounder. He may or may not make the team this year. It’s a competition driven league.

    It's crazy! Reggie Robinson is a fan favorite, yet not many have seen any Cowboy related tape on him. I don't think he's getting a fair shake. Especially with his position change last year. So it may be a new head coach with the same old B.S. Playing personal favorites while leaving better players on the sidelines.

    This kid should be third in line, as an outside corner, by season end.

    So who's competing with Dak Prescott and Zeke Elliott for their spots?

    I don't see how it's possible for a crew of people to evaluate anything full time and mess it up that badly to know a player is a bust right away in their first camp after giving them a 4th round draft grade.

    Lol come on man. Be serious.


    Garrett Gilbert and Dinucci are free to try and outperform Dak though.


    As far as Zeke. As soon as it makes sense to cut him, I can’t wait for the cowboys to unload his contract.

    I wish we had got a chance to see him and Anae last year
    Sink or swim we would have a better idea if they can play

    To be fair how can quinn know since they wouldn't let him on the field. So if the coaches who wanted him won't use him what's a new coach going to think? Hell get a chance but very short leash in camp just like anae. If they don't ball out in camp above the new rooks they won't last.

    I think the issue was he got moved to S but he's really not an S. He's moving back to CB as two of the S we drafted are likely going to be playing S. Robinson has the size Quinn likes. His problem last year was that if you want to be a rookie DB in this league, you better be good at ST and he really wasn't that.

    4th rounders don't typically come in and make much of a splash as rookies. To say he could be sunk cost already is very premature.

    Players taken on the third day last season were at a large disadvantage. Not having any preseason games hurt their chances to show up in a game situation

    not having a meaningful offseason because Covid probably hurt a lot of the rookies developments.

    B Jones wasn’t great until he stayed at corner. Richard saved his career.
