Exclamation Dallas for Best Draft. Period.

1 11 Demarcus Ware DE Troy State
1 20 Marcus Spears DE Louisiana State
2 42 Kevin Burnett OLB Tennessee
4 109 Marion Barber RB Minnesota
5 132 Chris Canty DE Virginia

This has to be the best draft of the year. I cant believe they got so many great prospects. Barber in the 4th. Canty in the 5th. And Ware/Spears/Burnett added to their D is going to be crazy...

The only thing i would change would be Ware to Merriman.

Then again, what does it say about an NFL team when all their picks are big names that we're all quite familiar with. Casserly passed on these guys, as did others, for some guys that we're not familiar with or excited about. It might have to do with the fact that he, and his scouts, have a lot more information than we do.

Dallas supposedly had a great draft in '02 as well: Roy Williams, Andrew Gurarde, Antonio Bryant, Derek Ross, etc... that draft hasn't turned out very well for them. Ross, Bryant, Gurarde were all considered first round talents that had slipped- Gurarde is a bust and the other two will both soon be out of the NFL.

Whoa, Whoa. Stop with the Bryant haterade. It's not his fault he had to deal with VinnyT in Dallas. He did fine in Cleveland last year(800 yards in 15 games). Not GREAT but certainly not "out of the NFL" type either.

Dallas,Minnesota,Arizona,and Philly all had superb drafts.

SD had a decent draft too, but so did Carolina.

Cincy and Miami also had pretty good.

If you don't agree with the top pick, how can you rate their draft that high ?
Myself, I'm intrigued with this Ware pick. This is a Jason Babin kinda of pick,
but a bigger bet since he was #1 overall for the Cowboys in top half of first round vs. #2 overall in bottom of first round for the Texans last year. And
oh yea, both tweener, DE in non-major college programs making major positions conversions in NFL (assuming Billy Boy and Cowboys do go 3-4).
I've been kinda bored (no make that real bored), by Parcells and all of his
Northeastern retreads he's brought down to N.Texas to play ball, but this
Ware pick is totally and it's gonna be fun to watch and see how it evolves. Who knows, maybe he will be Parcells new LT.

with the dallas shift to the 3-4 and years of poor drafting, they had a ton of needs. therefore, their draft was going to look better than most. "look, they've got 4 starters out of that draft" of course they do, they didn't have any tweener's on their roster nor did they have any 3-4 down linemen outside of Glover (stretch) and Ferguson

I think it's more of where they were able to get these guys instead of who these guys are.

1st - Ware was one of the guy's they wanted in the first...Spears was the other. They had to make a gamble on taking Ware here because they knew he wouldn't last to #20.

1st - Having Spears fall to 20th was the gamble on Ware paying off.

2nd - I've heard/read places that Burnett could've been a low first rounder. I don't agree with it but whatever. This pick didn't blow me away but I was pleased with it.

4th - Getting Barber here was outstanding (see "Which RB would you take?" thread). We needed some depth behind Jones and Barber is more than capable of providing it.

4th - Our "steal" of the draft. Canty dropping this far because of a knee injury in September was great. If he's healthy, at worst he's a 2nd round talent. Still having Greg Ellis on board will allow Canty ample time to ensure his knee is 100%. If/When it is, he's going to be golden. Probably my favorite pick of our draft.

The rest of the picks "should" provide depth but we shall see.

Again, a great draft...but not the best of any team.

The thing that all teams is a list of names . The more popular the name the more one assumes this guys a player . The Cowboys last couple of drafts have had players on the all name team . The exception is Julius Jones .

Terrance Newman, Roy Williams and Jason Witten beg to differ.
