I have been anxiously waiting for this day to come since Dallas got bounced in the Playoffs. Reading mock draft after mock draft. Intently watching the combine. All I had been thinking about was the draft and who Dallas could possibly take to improve our offense and most importantly our team as a whole. And after all that waiting, I feel so unsatisfied with what we did.
Okay. The first problem I have was Rashard Mendenhall, who some might argue was the best running back in this draft falling to us at 22. I felt like we were about to come away with an absolute steal. Unfortunately, we passed on him for the speedster, Mr. Felix Jones. Who by the way had a slower forty time then Mendenhall. This pick, or non-pick set the tone for me. I was absolutely devastated after this happened. The Mike Jenkins pick was solid. I had no problem with that. Then, just when I was trying to talk myself into Jerry's draft, he selects none other than Martellus Bennett. Who? Why in the world would Jerry draft a TE with our 2nd round pick just one day after trading away our solid backup for a fourth rounder? I think it makes absolutely no sense. I might be completely oblivious here, so please enlighten me. I think taking a receiver at that pick is a no-brainer. Especially when Manningham and Doucet were still available.
