End of Day One

Well, the first day of the draft is over. How do you guys feel? Happy? Relieved its over? Ready to throw Jerry from the bus?  There definitely seemed to be a wide variety of reactions to what the Cowboys did today and just goes to show that Jerry Jones will never make everyone happy.

Here's a quick recap of the day:

Round 1, #22: Felix Jones, RB Arkansas The Cowboys were faced with the unexpected decision of whether to draft Rashard Mendenhall when he fell all the way to 22. The Cowboys opted to go with the speedy Felix Jones instead.

Round 1, #25: Mike Jenkins, CB South Florida Jerry Jones traded up three spots from #28 to #25, giving up a 5th and a 7th rounder in the process, when they decided that San Diego was going to jump on cornerback Mike Jenkins.

Round 2, #61: Martellus Bennett, TE Texas A&M One day after trading former second round pick and backup tight end Anthony Fasano, the Cowboys draft the athletic and well-quoted Martellus Bennett.

I'll post my official thoughts on the draft on Monday when all is said and done. Overall, what are everyone's feelings on the first day?
