I'm more optimistic but the grade is about right. If Zeke has a good year, we get through the first four games and our key players stay healthy it's a good step. I think Smith will work out. The cowboys team doctor performed the surgery, he's probably the most capable member of the cowboys. If we go into next year having won ten games, turned out with four starters from this draft with a top five potential rb, a 90 percent smith, improved byron, Lawrence, Gregory and two of our later picks pan out we should be Happy. We'll bring in more pass rushers and corners by next year. I really believe most of those things could happen and we can make a run in the second and third year of this window. Obviously a disaster has a 50 percent chance of happening with the cowboys but that would doom the season anyways. Ramsey wasn't all we needed to get to the promise land, and I don't think he was the piece that was taking us to a Superbowl. We're still close to being close. Would have preferred Payton Lynch, but not enough to be tied to him. Also, not trading with Baltimore was just stupid. We'd have another 4th round DE coming into camp.
I had hoped they would pick Ramsey as well. However, if we end up with two pro bowlers in this draft then it's a huge success. If Elliot produces 80 percent of what demarco did, and they hold off the first four games then they could win the division. The defense was pretty bad that year as well. I was only hoping for a top twenty defense last year, and they were 16th. With scandrick back, a second year for Jones And the suspended pass rushers along with lee healthy. If the cowboys can have a top 15 defense this year by week 8, we can win the NFC east. Nothing was really giving us a super bowl this year. With a three year window I think a healthy romo has, the pieces added could certainly help make that happen before this decade ends. Am I stoked about the draft? No. But I'm not pulling my hair out either. If everything clicks, a ten win team and maybe a playoff win could be a step towards where we want to be. Hopefully we'll add some average vets. If this was difficult to read, sorry. New garbage phone.

Summary: It is all about potential with Favors. He has been effective at Georgia Tech because his size and strength allows him to overpower opponents in the paint resulting in a lot of easy buckets. His overall game is still far from polished and needs a lot of work, but he has shown flashes of just how bright his future could be. He likely won't slip out of the top five of the 2010 NBA Draft this summer.
Player Comparison: Al Jefferson. Like Jefferson was early in his career, Favors has the ability to overpower opponents in the paint with his great strength and physicality. It took a couple years for Jefferson to reach his potential in the league, and that will likely be the case for Favors.
