Surprisingly, the Cowboys made the best of for their 2005 draft. They did not make the worst of list. I thought for sure the 2009 draft would have made the worst list. "2005 Dallas Cowboys This draft was the best thing Bill Parcells did for Jerry Jones. Granted, he wanted Shawne Merriman, but DeMarcus Ware has proved to be a much, much better performer and much more reliable in his first seven seasons. In fact, his next sack will put him over 100 for his career. This draft reeked of toughness and reliable performers. Defensive linemen Marcus Spears and Chris Canty, as well as nose tackle Jay Ratliff, were in this draft. Ratliff, the 244th pick, has been a Pro Bowl performer. Linebacker Kevin Barnett and running back Marion Barber were in this draft, too, not to mention offensive tackle Rob Petitti. Barber recently retired from the Chicago Bears, but he was a gifted, physical, short-yardage performer in his prime."
