The Cowboys offered a peek into their war room for their fans, even releasing pictures which inadvertently (?) led to the revelation of much of their actual draft board. So what does this mean to us?
Well, despite the media hoopla around "the fall" of Jimmy Clausen, the Cowboys had him pegged at a mid-second round level. Now, maybe that reflects their situation and needs at the QB position more than it reflects on Clausen as a player. But what I find staggering is that they actually had him at 48, which was his eventual draft position.
Brandon LaFell, our third round selection, was listed with a third round grade on their board, despite the fact that most draft-niks felt he had second round talent.
That's not to say that the Cowboys were masters of the draft: they have Navorro Bowman (3rd round, 91 overall) with a first round grade.
But maybe our two selections, as well as those guys have performed in minicamp, weren't the amazing value we initially thought?
