    The issue is that there aren’t any elite QB prospects next year. I think his leash is longer than a lot of fans realize…

    Yes this was the year...

    At best we will get 7 wins with Young in any given year.This is face saving mode for the next 2 yrs as we wait for a chance to get a top QB.

    I was just going to put this on the thread created for our second round draft pick, but I thought this would make you feel better about the pick, especially if you despise everything Cowboy-related, including Jerry Jones. 

    First, some background that I heard on TV but have not researched.  Jonathan Brooks' surgery was completed by Dallas Cowboys' doctor Dan Cooper.  Jones would have had a ton of inside information about the knee and he wanted Brooks BADLY.  Now, Jones mentions the interview--think about the character and class it takes to get an owner to say these things publicly:

    "Having already addressed their offensive line by taking Oklahoma tackle Tyler Guyton in the first round of the 2024 NFL draft, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones might have spoiled their next selection.

    Speaking to reporters, Jones said Texas running back Jonathon Brooks is "high, high, high" on the Cowboys' draft board going into day two.

    'In my 30 years I thought it was the best interview that I ever interviewed with a player," Jones added. "He's outstanding. And he's a great football player.'

    Brooks to the Cowboys has been one of the most popular player-team pairings since before the draft even started."

    If Dallas was the only competition, I do not know why we moved back up to 46 from 52 when Dallas picked at 56.  However, maybe Dallas was trading up as well.  They seemed to get a good deal (compared to what we got from the Rams)--and there are not many RBs in this draft who are elite, can protect the QB, and can catch the ball like Brooks.  So I am OK with the trade, I guess.

    Here is what the NFL Network analysis of Day 2 said about Brooks:

    "Had Brooks not suffered a torn ACL in November, he might have been a first-round pick. He's a shifty, speedy back who can hit the hole and go, and he should be Carolina's starter before long. I thought they might go center here, but Brooks makes sense for a team that lacked offensive juice." 

    For the record, I did not want the Panthers to draft a RB back in 2017 (or so) when they took McCaffrey.  So there's that.

    Or we got suckered...so there's that.

    I don't think so.  Got to look at what we came in with because of last season.

    We came in with better rbs than other positions...so yes terrible pick.It wasnt a need or bpa.

    RB isn’t the least valued position. Center is. That’s what makes the point so hilarious. The further point is that you don’t need to draft centers high to “protect Bryce young,” I actually spoke to that point in my last post to you.

    your concern is BUILDING THOSE HOG MOLLIES with big time investments that you can be proud of, but it’s a waste of money, a waste of draft capital, a wasted opportunity to get players who can add to your win total. ELITE ALL PRO CENTERS aren’t adding to your win total versus the good center you bought in free agency at a much more reasonable price than what you would’ve paid at every other position 

    RBs are valuable as drafted prospects in this spot BECAUSE they generally don’t get second contracts while still adding a player who can change the make up of your football team  

    Could have got him without moving up.

    Adonai Mitchell is going to be very good in Steichen’s offense. He made a lot of plays for Texas last year. More polished route runner than Legette by a thousand times. Panthers make the wrong pick again. 

    And gave up 2 picks for them to take him.
