First of all, the Cowboys draft was horrible. We didn't get one impact player that can step in and help us next year. I like the Mcgee pick because we were in desperate need of a backup quarterback and I think with Jason Garrett coaching him up he'll be a good quarterback in this league. Other than that, I've never heard of most of these players. We needed help at the safety position and I don't think we drafted a guy that can step in and start right away. We drafted a bunch of developmental players which could work out but we'll have to wait and see. The only positive I can take from our draft is that we can develop these players for depth.
Second thing is the rookie pay scale. The league and its owners need to step in and do something about this. To guarantee $41.7 million to a rookie who has never played a game in the NFL is ridiculous! If this pick doesn't pay off for the Lions it could set them back financially for years to come. I'm not saying that Stafford isn't a good pick but he's making more money than players who have actually proven themselves. I think that unless this issue is addressed the NFL is heading for a disaster. Teams can't afford to take on these kind of risks! I don't understand why a guy like Cassell isn't making this kind of money. Here is a guy who has actually proven himself in this league and isn't making near the kind of money being paid to Stafford. Where is the logic here?
And that's all I have to say about that!
