Last years draft may have been the best defensive draft that Wade has ever had...
That said, it was about the earliest he has picked as well...
Looking back at some of the Cowboys drafts, the players they've gotten defensively haven't been all that. Ware was a Parcells guy if I remember correctly.
The last OLB Wade took at #26 was Anthony Spencer. Hopefully Mercilus is better than Anthony Spencer. Not that Spencer is terrible...But I guess I'm just saying I hope he turns out to be a difference maker.
Spencer may have beeen one of the better defensive picks that Wade made as a Cowboy.
