Extra Points: Cowboys, Lynch, Jaguars, Falcons

The Cowboys reportedly made an effort to trade back into the first round to take a shot at drafting quarterback Paxton Lynch, and though the club ultimately stayed put, Jerry Jones conveyed regret that Dallas didn’t make the deal. “I probably should have overpaid,” says Jones, according to Drew Davidson of the Fort Worth Star Telegram (Twitter link).

Here’s the latest on the draft as the undrafted free agent signing frenzy gets underway…

  • The Jaguars have a fifth-year option decision to make, as the club will have the choice of extending left tackle Luke Joeckel‘s contract through the 2017 season. Jacksonville GM Dave Caldwell says he’ll speak with Joeckel about the option on Monday, according to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union (Twitter link).
  • “Heck no” was Falcons head coach Dan Quinn‘s response when asked if receiver Devin Hester had been cleared for any activity after undergoing toe surgery in January, reports Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. GM Thomas Dimitroff said in February that Atlanta will re-evaluate Hester’s status with the club when he’s fully healthy.
  • Pass rush was an area of need for the Colts, but the prospects that appealed to GM Ryan Grigson came off the board early, he tells Mike Chappelle of FOX59 (Twitter link), adding that Indianapolis wasn’t going to allow need to trump its board.

    Just another reason Jones doesn’t see the big picture …… How’s your defense doing Jerry….!!!!! Lol

    • Huh? Most of the draft was defense.
      Rnd 2 – OLB/ILB Jaylon Smith – would have been #1 overall pick if not injured and will be be back in 2017 – Cowboys staff performed his surgery.
      Rnd 3 – DT Maliek Collins
      Rnd 4 – DE Charles Tapper
      Rnd 6 – CB Anthony Brown
      Rnd 6 – SS Kavon Frazier

      So we try to get a franchise QB to prepare for the future and yet we don’t see the big picture? It’s not all about this season we are building for the future as well
