Dallas Cowboys ‘panic’ draft class an indictment on Jaylon Smith, Vander Esch | Opinion

By October, Micah Parsons will be the best Dallas Cowboys linebacker and the second best defensive player on the team.

The risks and fears that came with drafting Randy Gregory, Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch have been realized.

As a result, the Cowboys put together a panic-stricken draft that looks like defensive coordinator Dan Quinn was a member of the “Fantastic Four” as he reached for whatever position he wanted.

This is not a draft run by Pro Football Hall of Famer GM Jerry Jones or head coach Mike McCarthy.
