Apart From Morris Claiborne, Which Cowboys Rookie Do You Think Will Have The Best Season?

What are the chances that Caleb McSurdy (56) or Kyle Wilber (51) will have a big impact in their rookie season?

When you draft the best defensive player in the draft, and trade away your second round pick to get him, I think the expectation is that you're drafting a guy who'll have a pretty big impact on the team. And not just down the line, but immediately.

In fact, my personal expectation is that given his draft pedigree, Morris Claiborne should at least be in contention for Defensive Rookie of the Year. I realize that this award usually goes to rookie linebackers, and that only two corners have received the award in the last thirty years - but that is why I said "contention."

Having said that, my expectations for the remaining Cowboys draft picks are somewhat lower, but I am excited by their potential nevertheless.

Is Tyrone Crawford that elusive pressure five the Cowboys have been missing for so long; will Kyle Wilber get enough meaningful snaps at OLB to make an impact; can Matt Johnson replicate his playmaking skills from college; will Tony Romo find Danny Coale as open as he was in college; can James Hanna live up to what he showed in OTAs; will Caleb McSurdy's nose for the ball translate into a role on defense, and could "eighth draft pick" UDFA Ronald Leary make an immediate impact on the O-line?

Let us know which rookies you think will have the most success this year.
