Top 5 pick is the best thing for us, honestly if you don't win the SB or make the playoffs the objective is to get the highest pick available so that's what I'm looking forward to. As I have said before our secondary is trash and PP would do wonders for us, and quite honestly as high as we are gonna be picking not much else makes sense.
No other premium positions worth the pick.

Mile's is not having the season he had last year, even before Romo got hurt. He's still very good but whats up with all the drops? Felix isnt doing anything (lines fault) Ware, Spencer, Jenkins, and Ratliff are having down years IMO. Not saying they will never be great again but this year has been dissapointing for all those guys. Is it coaching? Maybe. but they were Pro Bowler's under Wade before. I really thought our D would be flying all over the field causing havok but they are getting lit up every week, even by bad teams! Jerry;s got alot of work to do when this season ends.
I get what you're saying ;) They're good/great players who are (not all of them though) having a not so good season. Look at Drew Brees, we know he's great, but he's not playing great this year.
That's why I'm confident for the future, we're still stack with talent but there are critical position to fix. The problem was that our OL went down hill in one year: key players went from pro-bowlers to scrubs at the same time and I'm talking about Gurode, Davis and Colombo.
I disagree...I think it's just a matter of time. Our line can certainly force his hand, one day. I'm not saying he does it this year, if we're sitting in the top 5, because there is no one there to take...but if we were to have a worse pick, or to trade down or something...OL is certainly possible. It's so bad, that he'd have to consider it. There isnt a whole lot more upgrading you can do at the offensive skill positions. They're stacked, and yet are made useless behind a crummy line.
As for Miles...there is certainly tons more to look forward to. Yall have a right to be pissed about his penalties and drops. Because yes, they are a problem. But the guy is still a legitimate threat and still averages just about 100 yards per game. lol. The guy is fantastic...he just has a lot to fix yet.
He's still looking at nearly 100 receptions and 1400+ yards, lets not sour on him completely. haha.
I'll admit, I'm pissed about a lot of his boneheaded penalties and the many drops, but he's still a beast.
If the Cowboys do end up in the top-5, they'd be foolish to pick an OL over Peterson. There isn't an offensive lineman worth a top-10 pick this year.
Peterson is flashy, but he's also very good. A little overrated, but still the best corner in the country, if that makes sense.
Because cornerbacks score points for you, right?
Assuming that Peterson is instantly a shutdown corner in the NFL (which is a ridiculous assumption), even if a single cornerback can instantly turn a defense into an elite unit (which it won't), it won't matter if the Cowboys can't pass block or establish the run.
If the Cowboys neglect their offensive line yet again, they will seriously come to regret it in the future when they can't protect Romo and can't open holes for their RBs, regardless of what kind of secondary they develop.
People hate offensive lineman because they're mostly invisible to the casual observer of football - if they're doing their job, you just don't notice them. But when a team doesn't have good offensive linemen, the fans complain about the quarterback getting happy feet and the running backs being unable to find running lanes. But real football people understand the importance of a dominant offensive line - it improves your running game, and it keeps your quarterback clean. In turn, if you can keep your offense on the field for a longer period of time and establish a running game, you can keep your defense off the field.
There's a strong link between the 90s Cowboys having the best offensive line in the NFL and all the success they had. There's a reason the 2009 New Orleans Saints were able to field the #1 offense - they had two of the best guards in the NFL.
