Dallas Cowboys: One Draft Later And Jerry Still Doesn't Know What He's Doing

The NFL draft may be the most exciting part of the offseason for most NFL fans. After months of gridiron drought it gives fans the opportunity to see what their team feels are things that need to be upgraded.

And with the sixteenth pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Dallas Cowboys select Zack Martin an offensive lineman from Notre Dame.

When I first heard the news I was elated. It didn’t take me long to realize that once again Jerry Jones has absolutely no idea what he was doing. Why was I so happy? Probably because Jerry hadn’t made the mistake of the century by selecting Johnny Manziel to run the team further into the ground. Instead Jerry spent his first rounder on another offensive tool.

Okay, so it may have been a great pick. Martin is almost a sure thing to be a great offensive lineman in the NFL, but does the Cowboys organization not realize how appalling the play of the defense was last year? Calvin Pryor was still on the board, as was Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

Looks like we’re waiting again for another mid round project to plug in at safety to accompany the rest of the bunch.

The Boys just drafted Demarcus Lawrence from Boise St. which is a step in the right direction as far as finding defensive players to get on the field, but was outside linebacker seriously one of our most pressing needs.

What about Kony Ealy, or Timmy Jernigan, or even Ra’Shede Hageman?

The draft is just getting started, and yes its true there are still several picks to be made, but the fact is plug and play players are quickly coming off the board.

I guess the only thing to wait for now is which tight end we will draft this year.

    Terrible article… Stick with your day job Dave

    • Sergio Surroco

      He probably doesnt have a day job

  • Kyle Koelling

    Funny how none of the Defensive lineman you mentioned taking with the 16th pick went until the 2nd round… You are brilliant Dave

  • Joe Sandy M Faulkner

    Sorry don’t agree at all. He’s finally acting like a real GM with McClay having him stick to the board. Martin a legit top 12 pick, none of the safeties were close. Lawrebce will be the RDE not OLB and the best one left in the draft. Able to win now and the future. In the Tampa 2 the safeties aren’t near as important as the D line and if you pass talent like Martin then you are always 8-8.

  • Joe

    You’re literally an idiot. He isn’t an outside backer he is a defensive end. Stop writing articles because you don’t know what you’re talking about.

  • Michael Clay

    The guy that wrote this article… you apparently no nothing about football!

  • Old Frog

    The Cowboys turned in the card as a DE not OLB just like with Martin they turned in OG instead of OT. They know where he’s best suited to play.

  • Tommy Roberts

    I think jerry jones did a nice job they need the OL Fixed I think the big problem last year MK the game had passed him up with our offense all we need is a good diff and if they can stay health I think we’ll be okay
