Mine is a whole lot better than about 99.9% of the chumps on here.
Apparently you were stuck under a rock for the last 5 weeks of the season and didn't see Dallas get turned out defensively. Nothing like giving up 362 yards and 39 points to a 3-13 team with the NFC East hanging in the balance.
On the other hand, good luck with trading up to get someone that won't start next year. Please name one position where a rookie would start this coming season. Safety? Nope. WR? Hell no. CB? Maybe in nickel if they're lucky. OL? No. LB? Maybe on a rotation. Believe it or not, the Cowboys do not NEED anyone in this draft to make an immediate impact. You think one guy would have saved the Cowboys D last year? Give me a break.
There are plenty of guys that are in the 1st round that would be starters on the Cowboys and you are a fool if you think otherwise.
Like I said, Hamlin is simply a stop-gap and nothing more. They need someone who can cover and make up for 'Evil' Roy's lack of pass coverage ability. Hamlin is not a long-term solution for that problem. LaRon Landry, Reggie Nelson, and Michael Griffin all would either be better or as good as Hamlin at the FS spot.
Robert Meachem, Ted Ginn Jr., and Dwayne Bowe all could give Patrick Crayton a run for his money and supplant him as the #3 guy. Hurd and Rector are nothing but practice squad scrubs.
Leon Hall, Darrelle Revis, and Aaron Ross all could beat out Anthony Henry/Aaron Glenn, especially Ross due to his dual ability as a PR
/KR. Those two are weak stick bitches who haven't done shit but get burnt on a regular basis.
Joe Thomas, Levi Brown, Joe Staley, Justin Blalock, and Tony Ugoh all would be upgrades over Marc Colombo.
Patrick Willis could give Bradie James a run for his money. Lawrence Timmons, Paul Posluszny, and Jon Beason could easily beat out Akin Ayodele.
The Cowboys do NEED people in this draft because of how badly they got torched at the end of the season last year. To end up 9-7 the way they did proves they need people.
I never said that one guy would suddenly make them better, but it would get them on track and alot closer to being where they should be.
Ted Ginn will be a bust for whoever takes him, mark that. It's been proven time and time again that there is no difference between a 1st round and 3rd round WR. Unless some once in a lifetime guy comes around (like Calvin Johnson), there will be no difference no matter where you pick.
Randy Moss, enough said. He's lit the Cowboys asshole up every time he's played them and for good reason seeing as how the Cowboys were fucking stupid as shit to pass on him despite all his off-field antics.
Ginn may not be a polished route runner right now, but his speed alone is enough to make up for that and allow him to help stretch the field. When you beat Aaron Ross 1-on-1, that says alot. He'd be a great pick for the Cowboys if they went WR in the 1st round.
I'll agree with you that CB is one of the weakest positions.......if your team doesn't get pressure on the QB. It doesn't matter who your CB is, if there is no pressure on the QB, they're going to be beat. If the Cowboys do keep their pick, it better be for someone who can rush the passer.
But above you just stated that the Cowboys are fine and don't need anyone. Are they weak or just fine?
It is their weakest spot on defense right now and there are plenty of guys that could help them out immediately and who are 1st rounders.
Trading up if you're the Cowboys would be an idiotic move. Teams do not trade up to take someone that might start in 3 years. They trade up if they know that player will make an immediate impact, and frankly, there is no one in this draft out of the top 5 that could do that.
There are plenty of players in this draft that could start Day 1 for the Cowboys this coming season, its just whether Dallas goes up and gets one or not.
Honestly, if they do trade up I don't think they should go beyond #10 because the price would be too high for where they are sitting at now at #22. The #10-#20 range is where you are going to see some high quality defensive guys go that could be immediate impact guys like: LaRon Landry, Amobi Okoye, Adam Carriker, Patrick Willis, Lawrence Timmons, Darrelle Revis, Aaron Ross, and Reggie Nelson.
Honestly, I think they should just stand where they are if all things remain the same and hope that Aaron Ross slips to them at #22.
