  • Nah. Wade already said that he firmly believes Sean Lee is capable of playing both positions.

    Most likely you would have Sean Lee at strong side and Williams at weak side.

    • We had pick 59, Ducasse went 61 overall, Brown went 64. I'd certianly consider them steals that late. Those selections would have been just fine. And Jerry could have realistically went anywhere in the 2nd and no one would say a word. Dallas' plan was obviously to go BPA and ignore immediate needs. We just have to hope that the guys pan out. Which I really like both of these players and fully expect both to be great for years to come. I just never expected to get either. We tend to go after needs, I didnt think this year would be any different, and the value was there. Certainly an interesting choice/direction to take things.

        I mean this year. Williams wont play at all, he'll still be the 4th LB, instead of competing with Carp for playing time at nickel. Lee jumps right into Carp's nickel LB role. And then next year, Bradie and Lee will probably be three down guys, so we wont even need a nickel guy. It just wasnt a necessary pick, I dont want to hate too much, because I do like Lee, I just think there were better options given what was on the board and our need for quality O-Line depth and safety.

        • Ducasse maybe, but I wouldn't of really got the Charles Brown pick. It's obvious that we like Free at LT, Charles Brown is a LT and a finesse one at that, and maybe he'd be an ok RT but that would be pushing it.


          We are fine at RT, Columbo and Brewster is just as stacked as ILB is, Brown didn't really have a fit here on this team. Ducasse I would of liked.


          Anyway, for those who really broke down the ILB's, is Lee a much better player then Brandon Spikes is? Noticed he went not that much further later, and I'm hoping we don't end up with the worse player out of the two.

            Leadership, character and smarts wise, it isn't even close between Lee and Spikes. I would've liked Spikes too though. I really don't know who will be the better pro, but I'm happy with Lee enough to not be sick about losing out on Spikes.

            • You guys have had an interesting draft so far. From a value perspective, its been great. Dez and Lee.

              It's just that me personally, I'm not a Sean Lee fan at all (i don't like Penn State LBs for the most part), and Dez was a little overrated to me.

              I'd still give your draft an A-, scouts know a hell of a lot more than I do.

              D, I agree with you on Spikes. I was heartbroken bc I was hoping he'd fall to us in the 3rd. The Pats got a steal.

                Brewster is a RT/G, so Brown for sure would have had a home as a LT/RT prospect. I dont think he'd just be stuck on the left, like many believe. The value was great at that pick. And it would have nothing to do with Doug Free. Free would still start regardless, he's certainly more ready to do so, and he's earned that at least. It would just be taking the best O-Line talent available and Brown would have certainly had a spot here. As for finesse tackles...Free is a finesse tackle and Brewster is no mauler either. And with Felix Jones taking a more prominent role, it's not like we need strictly power players along that line. It's not like Free or Kosier are in the Houck mold either.

                That being said, I still would have preferred Ducasse as a big future G, who could play some T, if need be.

                  Lee is light yrs. better than Spikes b/c he doesnt gouge eyes. End of story.

                  Maybe I'm behind the curve here b/c I missed all of yesterday with a PC virus, but is Carpenter still trade bait? Was he always? If not does the Lee pick send him a msg, or maybe light a fire under him?

                  • Carp is on the trade market, I just dont think anyone wants him. He's done in Dallas. If he doesnt get traded, he's just getting cut. Lee just took his roster spot and will fill his nickel LB role.

                        That makes no sense. Let me get this straight. Because Spikes stuffed his fingers inside a guy's facemask, that makes him a less talented player? Oooooooookay. Spikes is infinitely better than Lee. Lee is JAG.

                        Gotta love that Bama homerism shining through and through.

                          Spikes will only be a 2 down player in the NFL. Lee isn't.

                          • Found this at another forum.

                            **one of my sources inside Valley Ranch was kind enough to conduct a interview from a list of questions I gave him with a Cowboys scout who was very active inside the Cowboys war room. I apologize to anyone who is going to be upset I'm not revealing names. I asked my source if he could reveal the scout and respect his wishes and the scouts to keep it anonymous. If this is something you find the need to criticize I ask that you ignore this post and move on so other can enjoy it. I'm paraphrasing some of the answers, these are not direct quotes but nothing was added**

                            How are you guys feeling about what you have accomplished so far?:
                            ecstatic, thrilled..every team will tell you they are happy with their picks but we honestly believe we have drafted two players who will be substantial contributors to this team in their rookie year.

                            Dez Bryant?:
                            we did our homework. Dez was one of the top 10 players on our board. He has a lot to learn but we feel he can contribute right away on special teams. One of the first two calls he received yesterday was from Romo and R. Williams. Romo was ecstatic, he will have this kid ready. Coach D could hardly contain himself as well.

                            Sean Lee?:
                            Football player. There is no other way to describe him. When his playing days are over he will be a coach in this league, no doubt about it. We feel he could start today but we have 2 great ILB's and he will compliment them well. SF was going to trade up and pick Lee, we knew we had to make a move. Singletary called after our selection, joked that we stole his guy. Also said we got the best ILB to come to the NFL in the last 3 years. Said the only ILB that rated higher was Patrick Willis.

                            What can we expect on Saturday?:
                            We have 3 picks. Jerry still has some things he wants to accomplish. Also spending a lot of time looking at FA's and players that can potentially be available. There are several good football players available, we tried to trade back up yesterday but could not find a partner. A few of those guys are still available.

                            Addressing the OL?:
                            There are several good players out there but I'm not sure any of them could make a contribution this year. We are pretty happy with what we have but that's not to say were not looking to upgrade. Just not sure if it will be in the draft.

                            Trading players from the roster?:
                            I dont foresee any trades being made but that is Jerry's call. It's not something I'm at liberty to discuss. Who could you trade at this point that would be easily replaced with a draft pick in rounds 4-7?

                            Trading for players from another roster?:
                            I cant really comment on this. Jerry and Stephen are always working the phones. If there is someone there that can help us they wont miss out on the opportunity.

                            Last years class...disappointed?:
                            no, not at all. We feel with the injuries the class was limited. It will be sort of a extension on this years class. Your going to see last years class start to pay dividends this year. Several of those guy are going to be key contributors to this year team.

                            Any holes Dallas feels needs to be filled?:
                            your always looking to upgrade the roster. It does not always have to be in the first month of FA or during the draft. Because of the current state of the NFL many teams expect there to be some real good football players available when teams start to trim rosters. We are happy with our current situation. Not many teams can say that.

                            A lot of eating going on in the war room, what was on the menu?:
                            *laughing* we have draw straws, winner choses the menu. Jerry loves Chinese, Wade cant get enough BBQ. It was Wade's call yesterday. I dont think that will happen again the room is simply not big enough for a bunch of men and plates of baked beans. (edited for privacy concerns) I dont think they will ever let me order!
