Funny that I used rg for red Garrett instead of jg... I just noticed it too.

A clever front office might "forget" to have that erased from a board to send a smokescreen...

Or am I giving Jones & Co. too much credit?

The one thing these players do not have going for them is that they do not have the allure of the new that makes the incoming class of rookies so exciting for fans and media alike. But just because they are not this year's shiny new toys doesn't mean they are of no value for the Cowboys, far from it. Think about it this way:

What if, in addition to this year's six draft picks, the Cowboys could additionally get a fourth-round linebacker, a fourth-round safety, a fifth-round wide receiver and a guard with a fourth- to fifth-round grade? Or, going strictly by the projected rounds on the CBSSports big board, they would get OLB Zaviar Gooden, Missouri (4th rd.), FS Tony Jefferson, Oklahoma (4th-5th), WR Josh Boyce, TCU (5th) and OT Xavier Nixon, Florida (5th) in addition to their six other picks? That would be quite a haul, and illustrates the potential impact the redshirt rookies could have on this year's freshman class for the Cowboys.

But, as much as I hate to write this, there may also be a downside to the idea of the redshirt rookie. And the downside is that if ignore everything you've ever heard about comparing apples and oranges and mentally add up this year's six picks with the five or so redshirt rookies, it might lead you to the erroneous conclusion that with so many draft picks at your disposal, trading up may be a good idea.

Agreed, that's a great article. Fans focus too much on how players can/will contribute too much as rookies and frankly overestimate how much a rookie can even contribute. It shouldn't be any surprise if Johnson and Wilber have more impact this year than any player the Cowboys pick on Friday or Saturday.
