Default Cowboys’ Jones boys deflate their own football people with draft ‘philosophy

Quote:
There are football decisions, and there are football decisions. And in the realm of football decisions, the Dallas Cowboys' decision to trade down from their original 18th overall draft pick and move down the 31st pick formerly owned by the San Francisco 49ers is being questioned by just about everybody. Not so much because they traded down, but because of the player they took when they did so -- Wisconsin center Travis Frederick, a player many analysts had with a second- to third-round grade. Some would argue that Frederick wasn't even the best center on the board; Cal's Brian Schwenke and Alabama's Barrett Jones would also get votes. But the primary issue was that the Cowboys, a team that has drafted pretty horribly over the last few seasons, seem to have done it again in the wrong direction.
Brandon Jones of the Dallas Morning News recalled an exchange between Assistant Director of Player Personnel Tom Ciskowski and Chief Operating Officer, Executive Vice President, and Director of Player Personnel Stephen Jones during the team's live feed of the "war room" during the first round.

The team has precisely zero picks left on the roster from the 2009 draft -- also known as the Roy Williams draft, because that was when the Joneses got fleeced by the Detroit Lions into giving up their first-round pick for receiver Roy Williams.

Jerry Jones recently defended the 2008 draft, which featured Felix Jones and Mike Jenkins as first-round picks and had some thinking that maybe the Cowboys were better off without those first-round picks in the first place.

“We got starting time out of both of them,’’ Jerry Jones said in early April. “That’s not enough, but those guys aren’t NFL busts."

... both players were overvalued disappointments, and that's been the order of the day for the franchise when the football decisions have been under Jones control. Perhaps that's because they struggle with the concept of football value in the first place. When it was pointed out to Stephen Jones that the Cowboys should have received a second-round pick per the trade value chart for their move down, Jones bristled.

“Not accurate,” he said. “We actually did better than the chart.”

Jerry Jones then said that “it’s a mistake to think that transactions go by any trade chart ... We invented trade charts; invented them in the NFL.”
We invented football, invented the NFL. We invented Al Gore who invented the Internet. We invented teams and we invented America.

Went over and cruised the Dallas board. This thread where the Joneses are getting crucified by the folks that know what's going on and of course being defended by the homers.

Guess it's the same everywhere.

Any bad news about the Cowturds is good news to me.

Sooooooo glad the Cowboys are up there and not down here. Watching their war room during Day 1 was really a sad sight. Jerruh and Boy making all the decisions, never once consulting with HC Garrett. The scout having words with Boy, and the total deflation and silence after they finally grabbed that 3rd round pick in the first.

What a pitiful organization. A perfect reflection of Jerruh.

I don't give a damn about the Cowboys and certainly don't mind when they lose games, but using the 31st pick on a center hardly seems like a foolish move to me. Certainly not when we had 2 other teams in this Draft expending top 10 picks on their own interior OLineman, who knows this might actually end up being one of the best picks Dallas has made in years ?

It wasn't as simple as "The pick sucks because it's a Center". It's a combination of the fact that there were two other centers on the board who most analysts rated as equal to or better than Frederick, both of whom lasted until the 4th round, and the fact that the Jones's basically shut everybody out of the process when making the decision of who to pick.

Of course it's their right as owners to manage the process any way they want to manage it, but having the right to do it your way doesn't insulate you from managing it in a fashion that's counter-productive to the well being of your team.

The bottom line IMO is that Jerry Jones sucks in a major way at being the GM of an NFL team - it's his right to suck, and he is exercising that right.
