  • The Best Draft Pick 1997-2006

    In the same vein as the "let down" thread but with a positive spin. In terms of value and/or production, what was our best pick draft pick from the past decade. I put a time frame or else everybody would pick Roger Staubach(10th round) etc.

    IMO I would say Jason Witten. To get a reliable and perennial Pro-Bowl TE in 3rd round was a godsend, as we hadn't had one since Jay Novacek left. That year was solid overall as we did get Terrance and Bradie. But we got fantstic value with Witten.

    I'd second, Jason Witten.

      I have to agree with Witten also. You can make a strong case for Newman as well, but he was a high first round pick, so you expect him to be good.

        Best pick or best value pick?

        For value... how about Patrick Crayton (7th in 2004) or Marion Barber (4th 2005.)

              Romo wasn't drafted.
              I'm assuming this thread is just about the Cowboys.

              Witten was both a great player and value pick. I'm going to have to go with Ware. It's all about getting pressure on the QB, I'm banking on him winning the DPOY.

                I would say Ware or Newman. They play more important roles than Witten.

                  Witten.

                  Romo if you aren't including only draft picks.

                      Wow, I can't believe people are overlooking what is, to me, the obvious answer:
                      Flozell Adams. Here is a guy that has played at the level of the top 5-7 LTs in the league for an extended period of time...all at the value of a early-mid second rounder. That is a no brainer, for me.

                        Very good point!

                          I'd say top 5 - 7 is a little too generous. Perhaps top 10.

                            I probably would have gone with that, but he said in the last few years.

                              He said 1997-2006

                              Flozell was drafted in '98
