A Few DAllas Draft Grades Bleacher Report: Eli Manning will Miss throwing for 400 yards against America's Team. With the sixth pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys selected Morris Claiborne out of LSU. Instant Reaction: Cornerback just went from the Cowboys’ weakness to strength in one offseason—(golf clap). Analysis: I’m tired of giving away perfect grades, but anything less is just wrong. Mike Jenkins is horrible. Dallas is forced to face off against the duos of DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin as well as Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks twice a year. Claiborne and newly acquired Brandon Carr give the Cowboys one of the top cornerback tandems in the league. And to move up for only a second rounder, Dallas is a day-one winner. Initial Grade: A+ Walter Football: Dallas Cowboys (Last Year: 8-8) 2012 NFL Draft Individual Grades: 6. Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU: B+ Wow. I don't think anyone saw this trade coming. I'm not a fan of moving up, but the Cowboys are getting a blue-chip player. They're filling a huge need with a prospect who could have gone No. 3 overall. Dallas surrendered a second-round pick to get him.
