Alternative list 10 biggest draft successes


Unable to figure out how to fix the table in the comments so I have laid it out as a fanpost  below. 
 

My list, using the PFF.com for the data, including their "CarAV" (a metric representing career value.) 

I have already posted, as have others, that Mark Stepnoski's omission is a travesty.   I have him at #4.  How he can be off the list with 5 pro-bowls, while Doug Free and Patrick Crayton are on, just makes no sense to me.    The other "forgotten man" in my view is Dexter Coaxley - 3 PB's and 9 years as a starter.    The last couple weren't with the Cowboys, but all his PB years were.  

If we are rating the DRAFT, then Ron Stone with 3 Pro Bowls from around the same spot as Bradie James surely has to be there.  Now he did absolutely zero with Dallas so as a practical matter I have omitted him, but that was more an issue with the coaching than the draft. 

So who comes off?  I really like Doug Free, and I am confident he will be a mainstat, but its way too early to have him in there.  And its not like he was a 7th rounder.   Patrick Crayton was a great return for a 7th rounder, but he was barely a starter for most of his time.
