AS YOU CAN SEE BY BELOW, DALLAS COWBOYS HAD COREY PETERS RATED SLIGHTLY ABOVE WHERE FALCONS SELECTED HIM, HAD MIKE JOHNSON JUST RATED ABOUT 10 SLOTS LOWER THAN WHERE WE SELECTED HIM AND HAD DOMINIQUE FRANKS RATED ABOUT 20 SLOTS HIGHER THAN WHERE FALCONS SELECTED HIM. THE SPOON PICK APPARENTLY WAS NOT LEGIBLE BUT LOOKS LIKE HE WAS RANKED ON COWBOYS BOARD AFTER #23 OVERALL BUT BEFORE #33(2ND ROUND). I WOULD SAY THE COWBOYS BRASS WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THE FALCONS HAD A GOOD DRAFT - SAY WHAT YOU WILL ABOUT JERRY JONES BUT HE HAS GOOD TALENT ON HIS TEAM.

The Cowboys draft board (the real McCoy) here

CowboysDraftBoard.jpg

The days and weeks leading to the NFL draft see a glut of draft boards or mock drafts from experts and non-experts alike, but we never really see an actual NFL draft board.

Until now.

The picture above is Dallas owner-president-general manager Jerry Jones standing in front of his team's draft board on Saturday, April 24 -- the third day of the draft. Many of the names on the board are clearly visible. You can click on the picture to enlarge it.

The Cowboys have confirmed this is their actual board. Apparently the team's in-house television department mistakenly put a video clip of Jones in front of the board up on the Internet somewhere. A loyal reader of mine in Iowa passed the picture along to me. I then confirmed its authenticity.

The picture speaks for itself, but in case you are having trouble deciphering all the names, the list of those that are legible are found below.

Here's how it works: The Cowboys graded the players on their board and put their names on computer readout tags. As players are drafted, the Cowboys replace the tag with the player's name, the team and spot where he was actually taken. The original Dallas order remains intact.

So Sam Bradford was the top-rated player by the Cowboys and he was selected by the Rams No. 1. In that the two teams agree.

But, for example, the Cowboys had Gerald McCoy rated ahead of Ndamakong Suh. So McCoy remains at No. 2 on their board while Suh is No. 3. The team simply removed McCoy's tag when he came off the board and added the team selecting him and the actual spot he was picked.

So why is this interesting to you?

Well, it is interesting to me the Cowboys had Dolphins first round pick Jared Odrick rated No. 15 on their board. The Dolphins got him with the No. 28 overall selection. So according to the Cowboys' grade, the Dolphins got a bargain.

Same thing with Koa Misi, who the Cowboys rated No. 35 overall, but the Dolphins got with the No. 40 overall selection.

It works the other way also, by the way. The Dolphins drafted guard John Jerry in the third round with the 73rd overall selection. The Cowboys had a fourth-round grade on Jerry -- 110th overall. So according to the Cowboys' grades, the Dolphins reached on Jerry.

The teams more or less agreed on a fifth-round grade for safety Reshad Jones.

Obviously this is all opinion. Not every team is going to agree on the grades and worth of players. One assumes the Dolphins don't believe they reached for Jerry.

Anyway, take a look at the Cowboys player rankings below. The round, overall selection and team that actually selected each player is in parenthesis. Some names were illegible. I could not find A.J. Edds and other Dolphins picks on the board. Perhaps you can.

interesting that Cowboys had Navarro Bowman ranked #20 overall. Wonder why then they passed on him in 2nd round?

nevermind, i see now - because Cowboys had Sean Lee the #15 ranked prospect.

I guess Cowboys must be overjoyed to get the #11 player on their board(Dez Bryant) at #24 and the #15 player on their board(Sean Lee) at #55.

Nice find but where is Weatherspoon on their board?

basically the entire draft board was seen via a picture and all of the board was not legible - thus you can see from the regurgitation of the draft board that many rankings are left out.

Thus it is indeterminable where Spoon was ranked by Cowyboys. I can only assume since he is not ranked in the top 23 picks(1st round) and he does not appear in the picks listed in 2nd/3rd that more than likely the Cowboys had Spoon ranked between #24-#32. That is not a fact but seems like a logical assumption. (Dang, I sound like Spock from Star Trek :lol: )

There's more than one picture of the board and the one I saw it looked as though they had Weatherspoon ranked as a 2nd rder, Peters as a 3rd rder, Franks and Johnson ranked as 4th rders.

Falconmamma - entirely possible that 'Spoon could have been ranked in the bottom half of 2nd round...

as far as Peters, Franks, Johnson - what you said is no different than my board above - so not sure your point there...

since this thread is based on the falcons' draft value as opposed to the cowboys', lets take a look at another teams draft value according to the cowboys. i live in baltimore and i am quite sick of every year hearing what a GREAT draft the ravens have. again this is purely based on the ravens' draft value as opposed to the cowboys and only three of the ravens top four picks were available;

NFL DRAFT.................................................COWBOYS DRAFT BOARD

2 11 (43) Sergio Kindle OLB Texas......................3rd round (65) 1. Sergio Kindle (2nd, No. 43, Balt.)

2 25 (57) Terrence Cody DT Alabama.....................n/a

3 7 (70) Ed Dickson TE Oregon..........................4th round (102) 4. Ed Dickson (3rd, 70, Balt.)

4 16 (114) Dennis Pitta TE BYU.........................5th round (139) 8. Dennis Pitta (4th, 114, Balt.)

while everyone was so busy giving the annual A+ report card to the ravens, it doesnt look so good according to the cowboys (a team i've hated for 20+yrs), which totally brings a smile to my face. i might just copy this post and send it to local boy nut-hugger mel kiper!!!

well, i'm not taking on Ozzie Newsome - Ravens pick duds every now and then just like all teams do - but Ravens are "right" more often than most teams. I think the Ravens had a decent draft - don't think it was an A+ but decent. Proof will be 3years from now - but year-in/year-out, Ravens do well so Ozzie deserves benefit of the doubt. You gotta admit even recently the Ravens "made out" with Joe Flacco and Ray Rice in the same draft.

as much as i would hate to, i do agree with you.....somewhat. you just have to understand my frustration of being a falcon fan in raven country (altho there is also a packer[no pun intended], a few skins, cowboys, eagles and even one bucs fan...lol), but i have to ask is it truly a 'great pick' or is it more of a missed opportunity when other teams pass on said players? i would say great pick if you coach up a pro-bowler from small div-aa schools, as opposed to a 1st or 2nd rounder from a major univ (ie rice, kindle & cody).
