Keep underestimating the Cowboys' brain trust. The Boys we will be fine.

You went from **** Jerry Jones to noticing someone laughing at the Cowboys weak picks and now defending like gems were added.

Expect the Browns to rotate alot in the D-line. Don't you have Wimbley? He should be a good 3-4 OLB rushing the passer.

Good to hear about Coleman. The Browns need a run-stopping defensive end and a sure-tackler.

Wimbley is a slug. He had a great rookie season, but when teams figured out that he only had one move and began rolling protection toward him, he has been a total bust. I've almost completely given up on the guy.

After further reflection and some research into our picks, I've changed my opinion and I'm pretty happy with what the Browns have done. Mack, from what I've read, is the best center that has come out of school in several years. Mangini's first pick with the Jets was Nick Mangold, who turned out to be an absolute beast and an anchor on his line.

Mack has the skills coming out of school to be a perennial Pro Bowler.

Robiskie was a pick that I called a few days ago and he will fit in well as a No. 2 receiver. He should replace what we lost with Joe Jureviceous... Maybe more.

Massaquoi should be good in the slot and he has a lot of big play potential. Both of these receivers have excellent hands.

Veikune is sort of a project with a lot of upside. Today's pick of Maiava was a great value in the 4th round, imo. I was impressed with him every time I watched USC this past season. He isn't as flashy as the other guys, but he seemed consistently good.

Also, all of these guys are very smart and character guys. Alex Mack won the Draddy Trophy ("Academic Heisman") and Robiskie was a finalist for it. Massaquoi graduated in four years from Georgia with a psychology degree. Veikune was academic all-conference in the WAC.

I see what Mangini is trying to build here... and I like it. Obviously, the draft is an inexact science, but it is pretty clear that the new organization has a plan for how they want to build this team, something Savage and Crennel struggled to do.

The Browns passing game should be back. Fraley was the main reason that Quinn and Anderson ended up injured last year and the lack of receiving talent was really the major reason that Braylon struggled with drops. He was forced to take the role of possession receiver and run a lot of routes across the middle, which has never been his strong-suit.

Do not be afraid to draft BE in any and all fantasy leagues if he remains with the team. Massaquoi and Robiskie will really open up the field for him to do what he does best (like in 2007).

#4 defense and an offense that struggled to score points and yet we go all defense... Being that I'm a huge Cornhusker fan, I can excuse taking Cody Glenn.

Not sure what you wanted Wash to draft. You guys added WR last draft. Adding anymore (a shytload went in 3rd) and we call that overkill.

If I wasn't a huge Husker fan, then I'd hate that pick. Cody Glenn played RB for 3 years at NU, and only played LB for 1 season. And, he only played 9 games. I liked him as a RB, though. He's raw and has athletic ability, so maybe he could actually make the team somewhere.

I wanted a ****ing lineman. It's our biggest need. Our line is old, our center needs to be replaced, and we don't have much depth. Our OL fell apart halfway through the season. Our defense was #4 while our offense put up like 11 points a game over the last 8 games of the season. Yet, we ****ing draft defense, defense, defense...

The Cowboys decided to get a lot of picks and throw them up against the wall to see if something sticks. I have no problem with that. The biggest additions the Cowboys will make this year is the healthy returns of Felix Jones and Anthony Spencer. The dimensions they will add to the offense and defense will be enough to improve the team a great deal. The team obviously has a great deal of faith in Gerald Sensabaugh so I will put off judgement of the team missing out on Willie Moore. The Cowboys did address offensive line depth in this draft which was a major problem with last year's team.

Anthony Spencer is a bust like most big 10 defensive ends.

When you take into account Jay Ratliff is a Giant it decreases the chances of Spencer making a big impact.

Of course not, Cowboy fans blindly praise Jones as a genius, defend all his sh!t moves, then spend the offseason making up excuses to cover for his blunders. You got people thinking he's smart for getting rid of Tank, Pacman and TO and yet those are the same people who called Jones a genius for bringing those guys in...

TO and Tank Johnson were good moves. Even in an off year TO still scored 10 touchdowns. The team distraction nonsense was also overdone to the point of absurdity. Tank did a decent job playing rotating as the nose on that defense. He did not make too many waves, and he rehabilitated his career with The Cowboys and was able to get another contract with The Bengals. Pacman was a failure, but it was a low risk high reward move that did not pan out. You are acting like Jerry destroyed the cap by bringing in Tank and Pacman.
