    It seems that the general feeling is that 19 might have been too high for Leighton Vander Esch.

    Kevin Turner, from 105.3 The Fan doesn't hate Vander Esch, just wishes they would have gone a different direction.

    Boise State University has always been a favorite for the Dallas Cowboys and Leighton Vander Esch is the highest drafted Bronco of the Cowboys selections.

    And tied for the second highest Boise State selection in the school's .

     

    Some of the reasons why the Dallas Cowboys might have gone the linebacker route early could have been a couple early season results from the 2017 season. They had 30 point losses to the and the when both and were on the sideline.

    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… ;^)
