    Yea, I hope we win 8 now just so I'm not pissed thinking about how we missed on Oliver, etc.

    This just shows how poorly this staff addressed the WR position last offseason.

    All this talk about tanking for 2020. Really???
    We have a talented defense and just enough offense to be picking 15 or thereabouts.
    No chance we ever get close to top five! Mediocrity!!

    This is a player who a year ago, at this time, I would have been doing cartwheels if we had obtained, even if I found the price excessive.

    Deep speed and ability that Bryant hadn't had in years, if ever. But also the size and physicality to win over the middle, on fades, on the short possession stuff too.

    More talented than Dez was. Can he put it together?

    Other than the quick pessimistic answer of "no" because it never works out here, this player seemingly has all the tools to be drool worthy.

    Like, frankly, player for player, I'd rather this guy than Sammy Watkins for sure.
    What happens when you put him in Jason Garrett's neanderthal-era scheme? Ghosts of Ernie Zampese, drawings on the walls of caves.

    You'd still prefer a savvy enough GM to win a trade once in a while, but the hope is that the scouts are saying, and that they end up right, that he's a stud.
    Yeah my hope is the scouts evaluated his tape against this up coming rookie class and decided a 24 year old Cooper was far more talented than any of them. Our history for trading for WR's is so poor though.

    I don't really like the 2019 WR class either but the reports that we intended to go WR high in the draft, and most likely in the 1st, are disconcerting at best.

    Coming to those types of conclusions 6 months out from the draft are even more idiotic than this trade.

    Well yeah, they really are. You should never lock into a position in the first round especially not 6 months in advance.
