I am giving Jerry Jones the scouting department and coaching staff a " C " for the 2009 draft. It is a very mediocre draft. After waiting almost 6 hours for Jerry Jones to make the first pick, # 51 overall in the second round, Jerry traded out of the 2nd round for extra 3rd and 4th round picks from the Buffalo Bills. Jerry reasoned they made the trade due to no quality players were available for that spot on their draft board.
Most of the draft picks Jerry made the second day were "meh" selections. I haven't heard much about the 12 picks this offseason, and I know the majority of players who are drafted in the 3rd rounds and beyond are not impact/starting type quality. These players are special teamers or backups for the most part. Jerry mentioned he did not think there were many players in this year's draft who could start immediately for the team. Time and time again he spoke how the Roy Williams trade with Detroit was our first round draft pick. Agreed with him none of the Wide Receivers in this draft would be able to contribute as much as Roy could now. Wide receivers in general have to have a few years under their belts to be successful in the NFL. With that being said, even though I believe in Roy Williams, Miles Austin, Patrick Crayton, and Sam Hurd, I would have liked Jerry to pick Juan Iglesias from Oklahoma or even Louis Murphy from Florida to develop.
