Would they really have taken Lee AND Bowman back-to-back? I find that a little hard to believe.

Bowman was their #20 player on the board. At #90 he was far and away the top rated player the Cowboys had left. If that was the case, they better take him.

Just felt like Lee was a luxury pick for a team questionable in other places (which obviously wasn't accurate but how I felt at the time), and Bowman would've been even more so. But yeah, can't pass on your #20 guy at #90.

I'm not a Jared Odrick fan, so I guess the key becomes the 2011 second rounder: who do they take instead of Bruce Carter? Off the top of my head the only other thing I remember them considering with that pick was a trade-up for Mark Ingram (Ew!).

Let's take it a step further. If Lee can't play 16 games in 2013 would you resign him? I would not. He would cost too much for 6-8 games a year.

Well, wouldn't health concerns drive his price down? I doubt he costs near as much as Bowman did. In fact, this is clearly a buy-low opportunity for Dallas- extend him now before he starts playing like an All-Pro again.

I do worry about his health, but 6-8 games a year? He played 14 as a rook and 15 as a soph (although he quite nearly had season ending wrist surgery). Each year, he's had one injury ranging in severity- ACL in college, hamstring in 2010, wrist in 2011 and foot in 2012. Not saying that he'll be able to avoid his yearly malady going forward, but he's not a Felix type that ends every game with a nick.

Adopt-a-Cowboy 2016: Sean Lee- 145 tackles (93 solo, 52 assisted), 1 PD, 1 FR, 13 TFLs, 977/982 defensive snaps played excluding the meaningless Week 17 game against the last place Eagles
