    Yeah, I was hoping for Slater. Lets hope they know what they are doing.
    I like the trade down for an extra pick in the top 100.

    Hopes for our 4 picks today - one of these:

    Tevin Jenkins
    Asante Samuel or Kelvin Joseph
    Jevon Holland or Elijah Molden
    Marvin Wilson

    Maybe but at least the trade down netted something else.

    Delighted Fields didn't go to the Pats.

    I don't know the OL is going to help Harris much

    Yah getting a 3rd for the player you wanted (supposedly) is great (3 3rd rounders now) but you had a OL who can play Guard and Tackle, who absolutely destroyed Chase Young in college, for a team who's O-line can't stay healthy.

    Surprised Bill didn't trade up for him ... Let's see if Mac is Tom MK II

    I was listening to a podcast on OL's specifically and about some of things scouts look to see in tackles - one of them is arm length. Apparently there's a long list of short armed tackles who never succeed in the NFL and always end up moving inside to Guard so they can stay in the league. The exception to the rule is the odd ridiculously explosive tackle whose speed and agility makes up for the lack of length - and Sewell might be that player.

    Apparently 34 inches is what teams look for and nobody with 33 inches or less arms succeeds at tackle. All of the tackles in this draft have short arms, so they're all potentially guards in the long run and worth a whole lot less as a result.

    So it might actually turn out to be very clever to avoid Slater because you can pick up a guard later in the draft.

    Read a couple of articles where the Steelers GM said that there are a number of OL draft prospects. He expects to pick up OL in the second or third round of the draft.

    I like the Joseph and Osa picks, but the two late 3rd picks seems like a waist.

    Just saw that Humphreys went to the Chiefs. Good pick for them.

    Golston is a solid solid player - but they could have had him next round. High floor.
    I don't even know who the CB is - he's just big, and can't tackle, and seems like a UFA or 7th rounder ... TERRIBLE PICK. Should have had Marvin Wilson - jackasses.

    Jabril Cox is a good 4th round pick

    Yeah, I feel more relieved about Golston after the scouting reports.
    Day 3 has been pretty good. Cox, Ball, the WR and DT.
    Ball had some off the field issues, which are bad, but if that is moved on from then he is according to Brugler a top 100 prospect.

    The CB pick yesterday. Such a weird one. 6’4 frame and ball skills, like shooting for the stars and hoping to strike gold.
    Shame that Molden, Melifonwu etc went straight after.

    Yah the CB yesterday was shocking ... could have had him much later on.

    Still see Marvin Wilson is free - I hope we get him as UFA ... and Ardarius Washington ... a

    Washington signed for the Ravens as UFA, he’ll obviously be a badass player!

    well ... i watched Q2-Q4 live ...
    Cowboys defense will be much better - Parsons, the person I said they were idiots to pass (well Slater will be an all-pro by next year too), is going to change the defense ... he's unreal.

    As for the game against the Bucs - really should have won it ... Played well. Loved what they did with Kearse, offense was good (bar drops by CD) and Special teams cost us a W ...
    BUt that's the Cowboys way ... since then? Gallup out for a month and La'el Collins out for 5 games ... So watch the idiot HC put Steele at RT instead of either:
    1) Tyron -- McGovern -- Badass - Martin -- Williams
    2) Tyron - Williams - Badass - McGovern - Martin

    Collins suspended for 5 games, Gallup injured for 4 weeks, Gregory on the Covid list and now Tank Lawrence out for 6-8 weeks.
