NFL Draft: Ranking Jay Ratliff, 5 Best Dallas Cowboys Final Round Steals

Drafting in the seventh round of the NFL draft is tough. Often, the mix of talent is poor. Many of the players are fringe NFL talent. Generally, a good seventh-round pick is a good special teams guy or someone who just manages to start. Not many seventh-round picks become full-time starters. Jerry Jones has turned quite a few starters from seventh-round Dallas Cowboys picks.

Jones has done a solid job picking players in the last round of the draft (going back to before it was just seven rounds). He's not only picked several players from the final round who became starters but has picked some who became starters for multiple years. Some, such as Jay Ratliff, have become strong talents despite being at the bottom of the barrel.

Follow along to see how Ratliff ranks among the seventh-round steals Jones has pulled off for the Cowboys.
