    Yeah I agree. I feel the same about LBer and WR in this fashion. We don't have to take a first rounder but we damn well need one at each position in the first 3 rounds.

      I have more faith in Dak and the current receivers than Lee, Smith, and who ever else is gonna be on the field.
      I know a lot like to promote the idea of BPA but the reality is that most teams draft based on need. Especially in the first three rounds.

        Well you can't just go forever not drafting certain positions. Frankly the fact that we have drafted so few QBs and WRs has been nothing short of a miracle that we have still found guys. It's a great time for us to draft a WR or two in my opinion. There is no sense in drafting a guy who will sit on the bench for years in the first simply because of BPA.

          I completely disagree.

          Our wide receivers are mediocre as hell now but we have plenty of them.

          It would be nice to find another quality WR but we can get by with what we have.

          We CAN'T get by with what we have at linebacker though.

            Of course teams draft based on need. Doesn't make it right.

            Teams make mistakes all the time.

            Smart teams put themselves in position to draft BPA. When you start targeting needs and certain positions you are much more vulnerable to taking reaches and players that are incapable of living up to their draft status.

              Agree. You pay high and play low in those instances and the likelihood is that this player will be traded at some point for someone you need. Hopefully then you can make a little profit on the player in this situation.

                The strength at WR in this draft is depth in the 2nd-3rd rounds. They’ll go fast.

                Don’t want to grab the wrong one for sure. Rather wait a year than force and miss.

                  I know we'll be in a position to get a good one.

                    I think the depth is going to cause talented guys to fall. Only so many teams will draft a WR, especially in the first few rounds. Which means once those teams have gotten their guys other talented ones will fall. Every mock draft I've seen or heard had really good WR's slipping through the cracks because teams will fill needs in those early rounds. And then on top of that you'll have some teams who will hold back on drafting one because they think they can get one later. I think we can wait on it a little bit, but if I see a run going I also wouldn't hesitate to move up and get the guy we need. Reminds me a lot of the depth we saw at corner last year where we were able to snag Chidobe and Lewis much lower than I thought they would go. We also saw other corners falling in the draft who we thought would go much higher.

                      I was on the draft LVE train. I was for trading for Amari before it happened.

                        Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith confirms he's no longer wearing AFO brace for drop foot
                        BY CLARENCE E. HILL JR.
                        May 11, 2018 01:30 PM

                        Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith says that he is no longer wearing the AFO brace for drop foot.

                        He said he has not worn it since he began working out again in February.

                        A source said Smith is looking Notre Dame-fast again and primed for a big year after just being happy to get in the field in 2017. He missed all of 2016 recovering from injuries to his anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments in his left knee and overcoming damage to the peroneal nerve in his final game at Notre Dame.

                        Smith, who was better in small doses last year, finished second in the team with 99 tackles in 2017 despite wearing a brace on his left foot and ankle due to drop foot.

                        Smith said he's the healthiest he's been since he joined the Cowboys as a second-round pick in 2016.

                        He expects a big year because he is finally able to run, loose and free without the brace.

                        "Getting that flexion back is going to help tremendously ... speed, quickness, explosiveness," Smith said. "I have been feeling great. Everything is about getting back to 100 percent. Every day I am improving."

                              Well it's progress, now let's see how confident he is in that leg without the brace. He does have the rest of the offseason to get comfortable though.

                                I'm pretty optimistic.
