The Cowboys chose a name that was not so recognizable with the 9th pick of the 2011 NFL draft. That year, the Cowboys took Tyron Smith, tackle out of USC. He clearly has been a successful pick, as he has started every game except for one since he has been a part of the NFL.

    judging by comments made by rex regarding different draft picks, connor and hill in particular, i’m guessing mr. t sometimes allowed rex to make the call on draft day and sometimes made the call himself. i’ll extend that to where i’ll guess rex was behind the mo w. pick as well as coples. if i’m correct in these guesses that would indicate rex is pretty good at picking jewels in the first round (we’ll blame wilson on mr. t, even though i would guess rex was behind that one as well). i really hope they hit a home run with the first rounder. if they can grab mo with the thirtieth pick, i’m hoping we can get a future hof olb with the ninth pick. my optimism knows no bounds. :-) oh, yeah, that doesn’t mean mo won’t spend his entire career here and become a hofer….

      I would agree with that. I think Rex got some choices on his own, as did Mr. T. This ultimately would have led to his demise in my opinion. The GM has to be the face of those decisions. The coach can have a voice, but the GM has to be the ultimate voice.
