The "Garrett type" comment? I like Garrett's front office influence.

I have no issue with the comment. I think Garrett's strength has been player evaluation and his future where he really leaves his mark on a franchise may very well lie in a front office role.

I'm not real scared about this Gruden hire with the skins... As an Off Coordinator he still couldn't get Dalton on track it seemed... I know it doesn't solely on him but still

Some new blood makes me excited. I hope McClay has watched how good in the trenches the teams that were competing this weekend were

Broaddus says he know what it takes to win in this league... in that case he knows about the trenches

Yep, and I hope that's exactly what Broaddus meant

http://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2014/1/14/5305218/a-deeper-look-at-will-mcclay-role-with-the-dallas-cowboys-jerry-jones-jason-garrett

Quote:
The man primarily responsible for player personnel matters with the Cowboys is Stephen Jones. This is an even clearer indication that McClay now holds a position that is analogous to Jason Garrett's job as head coach. Where Garrett really only reports to Jerry Jones, McClay now looks to have supplanted Ciskowski as the second most powerful or influential person not named Jones in the Dallas organization. The line of authority, or chain of command, on the personnel side now seems to run from Jerry Jones (the ultimate boss of everything) through Stephen Jones, McClay, and Ciskowski, with the college and pro scouting departments both reporting to Ciskowski.


Quote:
Well, the most obvious thing is that there was a clear disconnect between the college scouting department and the pro department. This came to a header when the pro guys made it clear they had no intention of drafting Sharrif Floyd in the last draft.

The pro guys won, and McClay is now in charge of the draft board. I assume this is an effort to reign in the scouts a little and make sure that the board is not constructed "on pure talent," whatever that may mean, but designed to deliver the best possible players that fit the Cowboys system - something McClay has demonstrated he can do in bringing in street free agents that contributed.


I highly recommend reading the link.

Sounds good with McClay in charge of the draft board. Last year certainly was chaotic. Hopefully McClay can keep everyone on the same page so we don't revisit the disconnect we had last year.

Lots of good stuff in the article. I take away the following from the read and hope we move away from this "strategy".

"Similarly, you could ask some pointed questions about the Cowboys procilivity for drafting injured or small school players over the years. On paper, and probably even on film, all of those guys may have been greatly talented. But what's the point of drafting guys who can't stay healthy or whose skills do not translate to the NFL, or more specifically, to the Cowboys' system?"

Ya sounds like we may see more of those picks that arent necessarily sexy(Claiborne,Floyd) but are going to be players who can play in our system.

Basically i think we have no idea what is going tohappen in this draft. I have no idea who are the "system" guys or what McClay will be after

Mock Drafts are no fun anymore.
