    I like this pick. Every WR in the draft was still available at 19, so it is clear the Cowboys were not really high on any of them, and that they have LVE as an impact player. His write-up (link below) is as good as you’ll see at 19. This is a playmaker who will start immediately and has Sean Lee upside potential, so that is good insurance for when Lee becomes a cap casualty.

    Now we have to get a couple of project WR’s, and part of this might actually be the Cowboys banking on Gathers. Right now they do not have a dominant WR, but think of Gronkowski’s impact on the Patriots – best receiver as a TE. That might be the idea with Gathers.

    They are working this draft best-available, and I still think an OL pick is near. WR, unknown. One or two picks somewhere in this draft.

    Maybe now I can get that Jalon Smith tryout at SS… ;^)
