The NFL draft is right around the corner April 25-27 and before we dive more into the Dallas Cowboys’ needs and what direction they might go with their selections each round, we’re going to take a step back and review. So, how did the Cowboys get here? How has America’s Team remained stuck in mediocrity the last decade? Some of the blame can be traced to how the team has drafted players, especially from 2006 to 2009. We’ll continue today by taking a look back at each of the Cowboys’ last five draft classes, reviewing the overall impact of each class and if each pick that year was a bust (D or below, if you prefer grades), fair (B-C) or good (A).
