Believe it or not, the Dallas Cowboys did alright in this draft. Let’s look back at the 2012 season. Barring a few misplaced injuries and a few mishaps with play calling, the team the Cowboys fielded wasn’t really a bad team at all just a very unlucky team.
So why do I say the Cowboys did just OK in this draft? Well let’s look at the fans perspectives, most fans, me included sees needs that we have to get addressed and for the most part we are right. However, the Dallas Cowboys are trying to fix their problems by one again drafting positions they feel they have a lack of depth in.
The Cowboys addressed immediate needs with a center and a safety and while some fans grumbled over the fact that we drafted a linebacker but remember last season how thin that linebacker position became. With both Sean Lee and Bruce Carter going down last season and with their injury histories I don’t feel that DeVonte Holloman from South Carolina was such a bad pick up and truth be told I’m surprised he fell as far as he did. I think he’s a good answer to a depth problem that Dallas had last season.
The Cowboys also added more depth on their defense by drafting cornerback B.W. Webb from William & Mary and even though this was not an immediate need it still wasn’t a bad pick up especially since losing Mike Jenkins in free agency.
The only pick I’m really scratching my head about is the wide out position. Dallas is loaded with talented wide receivers and most of them aren’t even utilized by Jason Garrett’s offense. So using a draft pick in this draft on a wide receiver seemed like a wasted pick to me.
So we can only sit back and see where Jerry Jones and company are going with this year’s draft picks. But all in all, I do give the Cowboys a C- in drafting this year.
