I am going to be overviewing the DallasCowboys.com podcast which pertains to the Draft. The host of the show are Ed Cahill, Bryan Broaddus, and a new co-host David Helman.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Episode 01 - January 16, 2014 - '13 Draft Review; Senior Bowl Preview



In the first 10 minutes of the show they discussed what to expect from the show for this season and talked about their previous season on what they were able to accomplish. As you can read below they gave a statement on what to expect from them this year, which was basically what they did last year but they wanted to make it a little more professional. Basically, this was to get the new viewer to come in and watch.

Ed Cahill wrote:
Our mission statement: We are going to try and cover every single possibility. We are not going to make any assumption, we are going to cover every position and every player that we can get to. You never know, you never know if the Cowboys are going to move up and take a Morris Claiborne or trade back and take a Travis Frederick. We are not going to assume that anything is going to happen; yes the need a defensive end, but we are not going to assume that they are going to draft a defensive end with that 16/17th pick.


In the next part of the show they discussed the previous draft. They went over the picks and what they felt about the draft overall after one year seeing the player within the scheme. Also, they discussed position needs and where they might go within the draft. They also graded the draft which was Bryan - C, Ed - B-, and David - B+

Bryan Broaddus wrote:
I was all about Floyd. I saw he was the 5th best player on their board; I thought that was the direction they were going to go. I have a problem with the process of how it all went about; If he is the 5th best and you are sitting there at 18 and you don't draft him. i think there were some other considerations, I was shocked that they drafted Frederick.


The rest of the podcast they talked about the Senior Bowl and players they are looking forward to watching at the Senior Bowl. Discussed players such as CJ Mosley, Trent Murphy, and Kyle Van Noy. Each show they also take questions from viewers on twitter and have like a live mailbag. The next show will be Friday, January 24, 2014 2:00 pm EST.

Episode 02 - January 24, 2014 - Senior Bowl Recap & Impressions



In this episode they talked about their experience in Mobile, AL during the senior bowl. They discussed players that they felt "won" the Senior Bowl such as, Aaron Donald and Josh Huff. Then they also discussed players that lost our such as the Quarterbacks. Within this episode they also discuss the overall experience of going to Mobile and the Senior Bowl. They also talked about 3 players they would see the Cowboys drafting from the Senior Bowl.

I'll be watching this thread closely.

Good find. Looking forward to reading the updates. So Broaddus gave the 2013 Cowboys draft a C? A lot of us would have graded it higher than that. His grade is bound to start some discussion here.

It seems logical. Passing on your #5 rated player for someone with a 2nd round grade. A TE. A project S. A small school CB. Not a whole lot of sexy to start off the season.

Broaddus grade is based solely on Dallas Passing on Floyd who was higher rated on their board and Drafting Escobar in the second. Many times this is a disaster to play games with your premium picks. Lucky for Dallas Travis Frederick can play

IMO, the fact that Fredrick can play doesn't preclude the fact that he had 2nd round value. I applaud the player, but hate where he was picked especially because we neglected our most pressing needs.

OL were coming off the board at an unprecedented rate. There was no guarantee he would have been there when we went OTC in the 2nd. Center was just as big of a need as DT.

You can watch it free on DallasCowboys.com or you can download the Dallas Cowboys app and listen to it on there.

OC in the first round is never really a need, it's a reaction to failure and fear of your ability to find one later in the draft. A good GM never gets to the point of having to use a 1st on a center.

Guess the Steelers have a history of being terrible at drafting, since they took Pouncey in the mid first.

How do you figure that? Center is the 2nd most important spot on the o-line behind LT. Frederick graded out as the 3rd best Center in the NFL. We went from 5 different guys taking snaps at Center in 2012, to having the 3rd best Center in 2013. It doesn't matter what position a player plays (except for Kickers, Punters and Long Snappers) if a guy is that damn good, and can immediately help your team, you take him in the 1st round.

Anyone who feels C is not an important position, think back to the days when Romo was regularly watching the ball being chucked over his head. FYI, if you have Download Helper installed in your browser, you can download the video file from their site.
