Cowboys Get Busy On Day Two Of Draft.

After remaining pat on Day One, even trading down with their only pick in the 2nd round, Dallas finally got down to business on Day Two.

With their 69th and 75th picks, as mentioned earlier, they filled some needs at OLB and OT with Jason Williams and Robert Brewster, respectively.  On their 101st pick,  the first in the fourth they got someone who was widely touted as one of their favorites on the draft board, QB Stephen McGee of Texas A&M.  McGee does have a questionable shoulder, but appears to have good instincts and a pretty good arm otherwise.  He will most likely be a developing project staying on the practice squad and brought along much like Romo was for about five years.  Of course this is precluding any reinjury of the right shoulder.

At number 110 overall in the draft and 9th of the fourth round, Dallas picked up DE Victor Butler from Oregon State.  An all-PAC 10 player who led his team in sacks last year with twelve and had over 65 tackles.  Upcoming is the 117th overall pick for the Cowboys, so stay tuned.

With their 117th Dallas again traded down with Tampa Bay to 120th and gets another good DE, selecting Brandon Williams out of Texas Tech.   Williams led the Big 12 in sacks last season and was a terrifice run stopper also.  Although only in his junior year, Williams was a top pick out of the Dallas area being a Ft. Worth native.

On the 143rd overall pick and their first in the fifth round, they get CB DeAngelo Smith from Cincy, a good corner but also a good special teams player as he returned the majority of the Bearcats’ kicks.    We now await their 156th overall and second pick in the fifth.  Did I mention that they now have  an astounding fifteen (15) picks in the draft today!
