    Assuming there’s a coaching change, there’s no quicker way to retool personnel for a scheme change than draft picks. Whether it’s getting bigger DTs, addressing the safety position or retooling to offset the loss of Byron/Cobb/Quinn/etc, there’s likely to be many holes facing the team come March 1 and the ones not filled by FA will have to be done via draft.

    I’d keep the first round pick and then down every round after that to acquire more picks.

    It's not about making a lot of picks, it's about making good picks. If the draft doesn't have a lot of talent in it, there's no sense in acquiring picks.

    Dallas needs to address some needs with vets. I love the draft being the primary resource for filling a roster. But we see the level of inexperience and immaturity on the field with so many young players in your starting core. Dallas needs a few more Michael Bennetts

    Both of the Saints safety's are free agents. According to their weekly radio show they can only afford to keep one. The other should be strongly considered!
    Never mind Marcus Williams has one more year... that's what I get for listening to Bobby Herbert!

    We're surely going to get some good compo picks in 2021. We've got Dak, Cooper, Quinn, M.Collins, Bennett, B.Jones and J.Heath all coming out of contract. There's a maximum of four and I think we'll lose at least four players that can accrue compo picks

    CD player went out in my truck. Once a week its either listen to him or country music (barf) on way to work. He's either an imbecile or does a hell of a job pretending!

    I’m thinking they lose Quinn, Bennett, Collins and Jones. Byron is probably the top comp pick. But depending on who the next coach is maybe they keep Quinn or Jones. I also want to keep Cobb

    I’d have it as:
    Dak - 3rd
    Cooper - 3rd
    Jones - 3rd
    Quinn - 4th
    Bennett - 4th/5th
    Collins - 5th
    Brown - 5th
    Cobb - 5th
    Heath - 6th
    Thomas - 6th
    Hyder - 6th

    We won’t lose Dak and Cooper but I could definately see four of the others leaving.

    Or maybe hire a coach that doesn't need the perfect player and probowlers at every position.

    I think most fans do not understand the off season this coming year. First the salary cap is rising some 10 million so we will have some $110 to 130 million available after a few cuts before we even sign anyone like a Prescott, Cooper, Jones, Quinn or Collins. Second because this is the last year of the CBA we will have the franchise and transitional tags of which we can use both so the likelyhood of keeping Prescott, Cooper and Jones is higher since we really only have to sign one of the three before tagging the other two. Third and an important factor is no team can use a June 1st cut to spread the cap of the cut player into two years instead of taking the full cap in one year i.e. if you cut a guy it goes all on the 2020 salary cap.

    As to Dallas and free agents, as much as many of us would like to sign a couple of big time guys that will help us, it just isn't going to happen. All we have to do is look at what Stephen Jones has institute the last several years so don't expect anything in the first week to 10 days of free agency. Like it or not, that is what is going to happen regardless of who the new coach is.

    In the draft, it will be interesting to see where we 1) end up drafting (anywhere between 13 and 21) (yes it could be 31 or 32 in our dreams) and if history tells us anything I could see Dallas attempting to acquire a couple of second day picks depending on how the draft falls.

    Lastly, the new coach and who it might be. Based on the times we have changed coaches, have to believe that the Jones will try and make that splash on the Monday after we are done whether after the last game of the regular season or a playoff game if we make it there. So far I have seen 36 names that are linked to the Cowboys and realistically I would bet the Jones have already contacted the guy they want and are negotiating with him already. Sure they have to do interviews according to the NFL rules but as with most teams when changing coaches, they know who they want and the rest is for the media and show. My best guess is would be between Lincoln Riley, Mike McCarthy, Tony Elliott, Greg Roman, and Chris Peterson.

    Should be an interesting January through April.

    The best way to make good picks is to make a lot of picks.
