Comparing the Cowboys "Leaked" Big Board to the Packers 2013 Draft

By Justis Mosqueda

Today the guys at SBNation's Blogging the Boys released the "leaked" Cowboys big board, by piecing together parts of the sections that were seen by TV cameras. Here is the link:

I searched for the Packers players and this is what their grades were (in order which they were drafted by the Packers):

1 Datone Jones DE UCLA (3rd round pick)

2 Eddie Lacy RB Alabama (2nd round pick)

4 David Bakhtiari OT Colorado (4th round pick)

4 J.C. Tretter OG Cornell (UDFA)

5 Johnathan Franklin RB UCLA (5th round pick)

5 Micah Hyde CB Iowa (UDFA)

5 Josh Boyd DE Mississippi State (5th round pick)

6 Nate Palmer OLB Illinois State (UDFA)

7 Charles Johnson WR Grand Valley State (UDFA)

7 Kevin Dorsey WR Maryland (UDFA)

7 Sam Barrington ILB South Florida (5th round pick)

So out of all 11 Packers picks, the only "value pick" the Packers made in April (judging by the Cowboys board) was Sam Barrington in the late seventh round. Jerry Jones's board even had Datone Jones, a player who was considered a steal at #26, as a third round pick. Jerry Jones wouldn't have even spent picks on J.C. Tretter, Micah Hyde, Nate Palmer, Charles Johnson, or Kevin Dorsey.

Days like today make me thankful Jerry Jones doesn't run my team. In Ted We Trust.
