Cool thread

Will research these 3rd rounders -  not loving it though. 

It’s not best player available. But it’s needs with guys they like that are NFL ready. Not high ceilings, but, can jump right into the rotation.

Wright pick was a reach. No doubt, seventh rounder. 2 better CBs off the board after that pick.  

I will stick with Gholston pick being good. Brugler came out of his seat when it was announced.

Meh, I mean Im not going to pretend to know anything about these guys and can only go by what I read about them but I like their size, specifically on Wright and Gholston. 

Wright fits the Browner/Sherman mold which I absolutely adore. We need safeties to cover the top but if Wright can just get his hands on the small WRs they wont be able to get off the line. 

Oddly enough, other than being a sure tackler, I dislike the Joseph pick more than the others. I like his aggressiveness but dislike dudes who cant control their temper. 

I like the UCLA kid. I have always been a big believer in incredibly tall outside pass rushers (Gholston) and rather short interior guys (Odighizuwa). Back when I played football I always noticed how short guys could be incredibly effective and more agile on the Dline. Obviously Im not suggesting this guy will be Aaron Donald, but Donald proves my point. 

We need defense and thats what were getting. Personally, and some of you will get sick of me saying this, but I think the biggest improvement will be us going back tot he 4-3. Thats the singular most important move to improve this defense. 

Overall, Im happy with what we have.

Don't know much about the other guys, but can weigh in on Wright a bit.  I'm a big Oregon State fan and have seen Nahshon play a lot over the last 2 years.  He is a junior college transfer from Laney (you might have seen "Last Chance U" on Netflix, and if you haven't you should... Great show and it mainly shows his brother who also went the Laney to Oregon State route, but they talk about Nahshon a bit too)

Was a bit surprised to see him come out of college this year, and thought he needed another year to bulk up a bit and become more physical.  He was good at Oregon State but never really had to deal with big receivers... really struggles against tall, strong, and aggressive receivers.  I was excited to see where he would go and hoped he got drafted.  Obviously was disappointed he went to a rival team, but happy for him that he got drafted so high.  Seems like they could have easily had him in the 5th or 6th round though, went way earlier than expected.

@Manster can probably give a good take on him.  He's an Oregon State guy too AND a Cowboys fan so he will be in the know about this pick a lot.

LOVE IT! Jabril  should have went in the second round and will put Smith on notice. This guy is a baller and just another commitment to a rebuild of our sucky defense. The  Gholston pick we got from Philly and this steal will pay dividends in my opinion. Great job Dallas.

Positive write up on Cox

 

 Kent Lee Platte

@MathBomb

Jabril Cox is a LB prospect in the 2021 draft class. He scored a 9.73 RAS out of a possible 10.00. This ranked 59 out of 2153 LB from 1987 to 2021. Using numbers from @BKubena, splits projected, times unofficial. https://relativeathleticscores.com/ras-information/?PlayerID=19069&pos=LB… #RAS

 

My favorite quote among many positive ones:

“Jabril Cox is the exact kind of player that NFL DCs should be looking for to deal with the giant, athletic tight ends that are wreaking havoc on their defenses.”

Brugler says Josh Ball is a top 100 talent if not for the off field issues.  

Cowboys have no problem getting a guy with off the field problems 😂

Cox is a stud.  No clue how he slipped so far.

Only took 20 years. Every team should have a tall fat guy who just doesn't move. 

Wouldn't want to pay his grocery bill. Probably eats 8x me and my fit 130 lbs.

From pff -

No interior defensive lineman was more dominant at the Senior Bowl than Odighizuwa. He was the highest-graded player at the position both during the week of practice and in the game itself, winning with power and quickness. Odighizuwa also has four seasons of solid-run defense grades on his resume from his time at UCLA. He addresses a clear area of need for Dallas.

Our Corners

Trevon Diggs 6'2" 195 lbs

Jourdan Lewis 5'10", 195 lbs (our slot guy)

Kelvin Joseph 6' 1", 192 lbs

Nahshon WrightT 6' 4", 188 lbs

Israel Mukuamu  6' 4", 205 lbs

 

Ive ALWAYS wanted tall CBs. This is like a wet dream for me schematically. We need a good safety to cover the top, IF the WRs can get past these behemoths at corner and their press coverage.

I figured one of these dudes would be if Neal doesn’t work out. They’re so damn big. 
 

Imagine if we got lucky and found a Kam Chancellor :excited:. I mean his measurables weren’t special. Ran a slow forty and came from nowhere, tech or some ####.

This guy is just a kid, so with some maturity and veteran leadership to hold him accountable I think he’s going to be a stud for us. I love this pick at a position of need. 
 Joseph + Best LB in the draft and the Eagles 3rd rounder is WAYYY better than Surtain minus whatever we would had to give to move up for him ( probably our second round pick and more).

Cowboys don't pick up Vander Esch's 5th year option

I love the kid, but he just can't stay healthy.

With the drafting of two LB's, I think we saw this coming.

I do hope he can stay on the field this year.

I read there is talk Smith could be released post June 01, so Leighton's time may not be over...

Hope this lights a fire under him. He has a unique skillset but the health is a problem. If he balls out and stays healthy he'll get a new deal.

From PFF (they had him as lb 6)

Day 3: Jabril Cox was the top player on PFF’s Big Board entering Day 3. We projected him as a second-round prospect. He is such a smooth player in coverage, showing as much both at North Dakota State and LSU in zone coverage, when going up against tight ends and while covering the slot. This past year for the Tigers, Cox ranked third among Power Five off-ball linebackers in coverage grade. His play strength isn’t anything special, though.

  • STEADYMOBBIN 22 changed the title to *** Official 2021 Dallas Cowboys *** Schedule out - Tom Brady set to play the last game of his career.

Fun Fact:

The last time the Cowboys and Bucs faced off in Week 1 was the 2001 season.  Brad Johnson's first game as a Buccaneer.  The Bucs held the Quincy Carter led Cowboys to 34 yards passing and 127 total yards in a 10-6 victory.  It was Tampa Bay's first ever victory in Dallas.

9/11 was two days later. Nearly twenty years ago.

We opened there with Romo only a few years back 8 maybe. I remember - because I was there. Pretty sure we won 35-22 ish. 
 

It was so hot and humid. 
 

Edit - yes Sept 13, 2009.

Yes

I'm old enough to remember when Philly “stole” Goedert from us too. He’s been quite the stud
