With the 2014 NFL Draft now officially over, there is no better time than while it is fresh in our memories to review the best and worst of the three day event from the perspective of the Dallas Cowboys organization.
Two hundred and fifty-six men were chosen and many, many more will be invited to various camps as undrafted free agents hoping to make it on a NFL squad. With nine selections made by the Cowboys and many holes, specifically on the defense, you would have to believe that Dallas had a good opportunity to fill a lot of needs. Sometimes during the draft there comes a time when drafting the best player available supersedes need, however. The “perfect” draft is a harmonious marriage of these two philosophies. The teams that accomplish this usually are the ones who year in and year out are making runs deep into January.
So, how did the Cowboys do? Let’s review some of the highlights of this year’s draft and look at the best and worst moves made by evaluators on this team.
