The First Three Picks or How I learned Not Trade MY Picks and Have the Best Draft:
So 3 weeks ago I had a poll asking what you would do for Draft Day, Most selected Standing Pat and drafting. It seems Jerry & Company agreed. Look what they got;
At #27 a Corner who can play Free Safety and was THE Freak Talent athletically at the combine. Byron Jones has been labeled as a workout warrior and even Mocked (pun intended) by Maurice Jones-Drew...so no one watched the tape on this guy then? He is big, solid and a press man corner with excellent range.
THEN, there was the pick at #60, some OLB from Nebraska, nothing to see here, a dope-head no one wanted. Oh but he was considered a top 10 pick talent wise. I speak of Randy Gregory. Any other team, and this might be a bad pick, but Dallas has the player support sytem to turn this Lover of Mary Jane into QB Sacking machine. 6'5" and 235'lbs, I think he needs to put some weight on and Marinelli and crew will get that done.
Third Round, pick #91, Baltimore takes Carl Davis, DT from Iowa, who I thought Dallas would draft, easy. So instead they go with Chaz Green, OT from Florida. 6'5" 314'lb and can play both sides. Parnell replacement sure, but he can do something Parnell couldn't, RUN BLOCK! Also, he fits the mold, physically, that Dallas has for their O-Line.
Now I would have preferred Tevin Coleman at 60, 3 down back that can do it all and has better speed than Murray, but the fact Dallas didn't pick up a RB in the first 3 rounds means its McFadden and Randle. Dallas has a DE who can potentially make the loss of Hardy more palatable and a Corner, who can make it possible to cut Carr loose, or play at FS next to Church or Wilcox. Some needs have been addressed, and possibly the steal of the draft, so far, so possibly good. Until these guys get into the OTAs and Camp, we can only guess.
