10. 1994 DRAFT – ROUND 4, PICK 131 – COWBOYS DRAFT DEWAYNE DOTSON, LB – MISSISSIPPI

The first draft with Jerry running the show was a precursor of things to come.  Earlier in the draft, with their first round pick, the Cowboys drafted Shante Carver, passing on soon-to-be Hall of Fame WR Isaac Bruce and long time center Kevin Mawae, both of whom were drafted early in round two.  That was not as egregious of an error in talent evaluation as what occurred in round four however.  With their pick in the middle of the fourth round, Dallas targeted linebacker DeWayne Dotson while passing on an All-American safety out of Western Illinois by the name of Rodney Harrison.  Dotson played in 25 NFL games, none of which happened to be in a Cowboys uniform.  Harrison ended his career as a four-time All-Pro with two Super Bowl rings and more interceptions (34) and sacks (30.5) than Dotson had games played.
