I also like the DT from Arkansas. After the draft, Bell the Safety and our new kicker. Great haul!
The entire draft was pretty damned good. How many will pan out? Remains to be seen.
He’s going to be a rock solid WR2/3 that opens the 3rd level up a bit just like Gallup.
Regarding Sam Smith the charges were dropped and the Cowboys did a deep dive into his background. Let's be careful not to characterize him as guilty of a serious vicious act.
I "liked" the first three, but them picking Waletzko got me excited because he was a Pet Cat of mine, and I think he has big potential to be a steal/starter
Tyler Smith was my favorite player in this draft.
I started posting about him several weeks ago.
Tolbert, I think he will be most ready to step in
Yes, why can't fans understand that accused does not equal guilty.
There is a long history of athletes being falsely accused by women.
The false accusations just make the problem worse for women that really were assaulted.
Diggs, Awuzie, a few solid but unspectacular picks.
I cant say any of them excited me, but I dont know much about them.
without looking at some hl reels on yt, I dont have an opinion on them, except I like the ridgeway guy , and tolbert, who is alabama wr,
has to be good to play there.
I will be looking to see if any of these guys play this year and how they do, if they do play.
I am extremely intrigued, with the Sam Williams pick and like most hope Boys truly did their research with his off field issues.
I’ll be excited when they do something in a regular season game. All the new players deserve a chance to prove themselves and I look forward to them being a success.
But I long ago stopped believing the verbal hype from the Jones Big Top circus. I don’t believe anything they say about players or the team until it actually happens.
The only true impact player we got. DaRon Bland.
I feel like cowboys went with players with huge upside. They already have all the strength and size, and speed with solid college performances. Now they need to be coached up a bit to dominate. I like the approach especially given how late they were picking.
Didn’t say he was guilty but he was charged and suspended even though the charges were dropped. It doesn’t matter how deep a dive you do on a player it doesn’t it mean they won’t end up in trouble again. They did a deep dive on Gregory and were convinced he didn’t have a problem with pot. Joseph had character concerns when we drafted him last year and the Cowboys did a deep dive on him and he ended up a person of interest in a murder. We haven’t been drafting anyone with character concerns with our first pick but we continue to gamble with players that have drug, character or injury concerns with our second round pick.
We don’t know if the accusations were false but he put himself in a position to be accused and suspended. Whether they’re guilty or not it’s a distraction and raises concerns about the players character. That situation caused Williams to fall in the draft.
Diggs has been outstanding so far, although he does give up some plays and could end up being a spectacular pick. I wouldn’t put him in the same sentence with Chido. He never looked like he would become a great player.
Ho-hum draft.. a lot of unknowns. Nothing to get excited about really. I still think the team isn't going to be better for awhile. The Eagles leapfrogged us for sure.. at least on paper.
i believe top to bottom all about the same we filled needs and ill give a early grade overall B..
i think many of those players taken are very similar in talent and what they can bring to us this season and down the road. To be honest first draft in long time where i really knew nothing about any of these players and didn't have an idea where the Cowboys would go especially rounds 1-3..
so my comments are post draft research and what not we filled holes with quality player none get you super excepted but none are real disappointments. i think it will be a more satisfying draft because less disappointment comes from less expectations and with the upside good on most of these players if they simply fill there roles with solid play it will be success. when you pick in the bottom of every round.
isn't that what we could hope for. Solid role players, some starters who are solid but maybe we don't expect PBs and HOF play?? need and value met head on..
I like to keep things ion persecutive.
one can only hope but we will have to wait until 2023..
