  1. Despite this highly convincing argument, I still think he’d work great in either spot.
  2. Dane Brugler's dropped his top 100 this morning: https://theathletic.com/2332366/2021/01/21/bruglers-top-100-nfl-draft-board/ Behind a paywall, but here are where some popular potential Cowboys names rank: 6) Rashawn Slater, OT2 10) Caleb Farley, CB1 11) Patrick Surtain, CB2 13) Micah Parsons, LB1 14) Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB2 18) Christian Barmore, DT1 20) Jaycee Horn, CB3 22) Nick Bolton, LB3 33) Trevon Moehrig, S1 36) Chazz Surratt, LB6 39) Daviyon Nixon, DT2 97) Alim McNeill, DT8
  3. Rousseau is not a great prospect, and is extremely unlikely to go before #10. Dallas picking him would be a massive whiff, IMO. Hard pass.
  4. I imagine Quinn would view him as a prototype WLB. Deion Jones (played for Quinn in Atlanta) was 222, Fred Warner 229, Darius Leonard 230, Patrick Queen 229. He would be a monster playing for Quinn there. And my personal opinion is he'd be an amazing strong safety, if they decided they liked him at that spot better. The dude is a dynamic playmaker, so much fun to watch, can do just about anything you ask of him at a high level, and is rapidly ascending. Definitely my favorite player in the draft. I do think I would still lean CB in the first round, though. Surtain and Farley are legi
  5. Cowboys draft Twitter seems to finally getting on the JOK train today. 🎉 I previously didn’t think JOK was a realistic option for us, but I actually think he’s about as close to a Dan Quinn prototype as it gets. He’ll love him.
  6. Is it that quickly? He’s had 2 entire seasons of consistently mediocre or worse play at this point.
  7. I’ve been spending some time trying to get a good understand of Dan Quinn’s plans on defense. I have some thoughts. My first is that I’m pretty convinced if he could create his prototype players in a lab, he would create the same player for SS and WLB. He asks them to do a lot of the same type of stuff, and he loves those hybrids. For example, it wouldn’t surprise me to see them take a guy like Hamsah Nasirildeen and play him at WLB with Donavan Wilson at SS. Or conversely, for them to take a guy like Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, and play him at SS, and move Wilson to FS or the bench (th
  8. You made a claim that a vast majority of people disagree with, to the point where someone just assumed you had mistyped. Most available data would not support your take, and you provide no context, evidence, or logic to back up it. That's what makes it a bad take. Not just the simple fact that we disagree.
  9. I’ll take both in FA, honestly. Give me Dalvin Tomlinson and Marcus Maye. The way this draft class is stacking up, I think we are far more likely to have value at CB and LB at our picks.
  10. Since we don’t have an FA thread, I still feel like this was relevant here: https://theathletic.com/2330090/2021/01/18/dallas-cowboys-free-agent-signing-nfl/#click=https://t.co/zdC8QBMSKL One point I’ll make on this article. A lot of people talk about the need to invest in FS. So something to consider when thinking through how we might do that... There are 4 legit FSs hitting the market in Justin Simmons, Anthony Harris, Marcus Williams, and Marcus Maye. Plus, there’s another good (though always injured) ball hawk in Malik Hooker. This draft also has a lot of centerfield-ty
  11. He's played fewer than 750 college snaps, and only a fraction of those were played while he was performing at a really high level (the back half of 2020). That's a lot less experience than even most of the guys who opted out this offseason. I think his athletic testing is going to be a big factor in where he gets selected. If he tests as a special athlete, then I think you could reasonably say you've seen enough on tape that you can justify almost any point in the draft. If he tests more like a "really good athlete" than a special one, then I think teams will be hesitant in the top 10-12.
  12. https://www.pff.com/news/draft-2021-nfl-mock-draft-justin-fields-goes-to-jacksonville-at-no-1-miami-picks-devonta-smith-lands-at-no-3 FWIW, PFF has Christian Barmore going #7 in their latest mock draft.
  13. I’d try really hard to grab both, instead of Nixon.
