Quite the 14 months for the Cowboys. They lose Romo, Bryant and Witten.

Re: 1st Round Pick- Mike Hughes- CB, UCF

I like this pick. Insurance and competition for Waynes as well as a replacement for Newman. Corner is the toughest position on sports imo so it's always good to add talent there. I'm wondering if he will be the kickoff returner. A bit short so I'm not sure if that limits him from playing outside in...

Re: 5th Round Pick- Tyler Conklin- TE, Central Michigan

Rudolph has been good, but never great. My sense is Conklin is a flier pick. Strong raw material, so they took a chance on him. I don't mind it as a 5th round pick. He's a total flier. What's weird is that his 40 time is pretty bad (4.8 ) but his 60-yard puts him in the 96th percentile. So he can b...
