    I hate to say it but Dallas got a great deal with Claiborne. Huge upgrade for their secondary, and I think St. Louis should really have asked for more than just a 2nd for the pick. I know it's accurate with the trade value chart, but Claiborne is more of a top 3-4 prospect and they should have charged accordingly.

    I don't know how great of a deal it was. Claiborn may be a great player, but the 14th picks in the first and second are a steep price to pay, especially with having signed a high priced CB in FA and given the plethora of other needs they had.

    I think dallas drafted very well, they were well aware that their 2ndary was their biggest weakness.

    They addressed that issue with FA and draft choices.

    Will be an interesting year to come.

    I have always felt that no matter how good the D backs are if there is no pass rush you lose in the end.

    For the most part I thought the draft was a head-scratcher for the Dallas Cowboys.

    We essentially gave up Brockers for Claiborne, as well as a 2nd rounder. Claiborne does fill two needs for us-- CB and a solid kick returner, but I personally would have preferred to strengthen the trenches by taking Brockers (or another DE) and Center Peter Konz in the 2nd.

    The rest of the draft? Well, even Garrett established that we needed a couple of starters from this draft, and I don't believe we got any... at least for the immediate future. I think Crawford could contribute this year and be pretty nasty in the future, but other than that, it wasn't a great draft for us.

    The positive about this draft is that all of our draftees seem to be good character guys with good athleticism and high motors.

    7th in sacks last year and only 6 behind the Giants. With the improved secondary, our pass rush should improve.
