The draft grades are starting to roll in and the Dallas Cowboys are generally getting good reviews. Almost all analysts are giving the Cowboys A’s or B’s for their efforts over the weekend.

Here are the grades and click on the names to read why they gave us the grades they did. Enjoy!

Mel Kiper – B+ 

Pete Prisco – A 

Rick Gosselin – B 

The Star Ledger – B- 

John Czarnecki – A- 

Charean Williams - B+ 

Football’s Future - A 

Sporting News - B+ 

For my own personal grade, I'd give it a B. I like Felix Jones and think he'll add instant speed to the offense and will upgrade our special teams. Mike Jenkins was great value at #25 and is insurance for Pacman and a step towards building a younger secondary for the future. I'm not thrilled with Martellus Bennett in the second round, he's a great athlete but not enough production for me and thought we could fill the spot of a second TE later. Tashard Choice is a solid pick with good value at that spot although I'm not sure Dallas needed to go for a 2nd RB at that spot. Orlando Scandrick adds another piece to an upgraded secondary and flashes excellent speed. Erik Walden felt like a reach in the 6th round and will be a project, maybe not the best use of that pick.
