The Cowboys draft board (the real McCoy) here

Jerry Jones whiteboard
The days and weeks leading to the NFL draft see a glut of draft boards or mock drafts from experts and non-experts alike, but we never really see an actual NFL draft board.

Until now.

The picture above is Dallas owner-president-general manager Jerry Jones standing in front of his team's draft board on Saturday, April 24 -- the third day of the draft. Many of the names on the board are clearly visible. You can click on the picture to enlarge it.

The Cowboys have confirmed this is their actual board. Apparently the team's in-house television department mistakenly put a video clip of Jones in front of the board up on the Internet somewhere. A loyal reader of mine in Iowa passed the picture along to me. I then confirmed its authenticity.

The picture speaks for itself, but in case you are having trouble deciphering all the names, the list of those that are legible are found below.

Here's how it works: The Cowboys graded the players on their board and put their names on computer readout tags. As players are drafted, the Cowboys replace the tag with the player's name, the team and spot where he was actually taken. The original Dallas order remains intact.

So Sam Bradford was the top-rated player by the Cowboys and he was selected by the Rams No. 1. In that the two teams agree.

But, for example, the Cowboys had Gerald McCoy rated ahead of Ndamakong Suh. So McCoy remains at No. 2 on their board while Suh is No. 3. The team simply removed McCoy's tag when he came off the board and added the team selecting him and the actual spot he was picked.

So why is this interesting to you?

Well, it is interesting to me the Cowboys had Dolphins first round pick Jared Odrick rated No. 15 on their board. The Dolphins got him with the No. 28 overall selection. So according to the Cowboys' grade, the Dolphins got a bargain.

Same thing with Koa Misi, who the Cowboys rated No. 35 overall, but the Dolphins got with the No. 40 overall selection.

It works the other way also, by the way. The Dolphins drafted guard John Jerry in the third round with the 73rd overall selection. The Cowboys had a fourth-round grade on Jerry -- 110th overall. So according to the Cowboys' grades, the Dolphins reached on Jerry.

The teams more or less agreed on a fifth-round grade for safety Reshad Jones.

Obviously this is all opinion. Not every team is going to agree on the grades and worth of players. One assumes the Dolphins don't believe they reached for Jerry.

Anyway, take a look at the Cowboys player rankings below. The round, overall selection and team that actually selected each player is in parenthesis. Some names were illegible. I could not find A.J. Edds and other Dolphins picks on the board. Perhaps you can.

Home,

Homey the Clown was not from Mad TV... not even close

Home, try In Living Color, then I'll give 3 snaps in Z formation

It Is Homey D. Clown

what network or show was it Carlito
watched the clips on you tube last month

In Living Color...

You should watch other things than only youtube Home... start with Hulu and branch out from there... lol... :)

I thought Fire Marshall Bill was the best

P.S. The best character from In Living Color was when Jim Carey played the lady steroid freak.

Dear Mr. Carlito from Golfito

It only works if you say "Simon says" first.

Dear Mr. Moderator

It wasn't me....I've been good all article

Dear Mr. Salguero

About time you hired security


Soiled :)

Yes carlito, I think her name was Vera De Milo or something

Watch many things on other networks like CNN
CNBC Weather Channel USA Today Science Digest etc

Carlito
Why all the negativity & sarcasm

U R Right on Living Color w/ Homey D.Clown

Homey D. Clown - Damon Wayans plays an ex-con who works as a clown (real name Herman Simpson) for his parole agreement, but violently lashes out at anyone (usually by hitting them on the head with a tennis ball-filled sock) who attempts to make him perform the standard antics of the role - "I don't think so... Homey don't play dat!". His goal in life is to get even with "The Man", a personification of the white males he thinks are "holding him down". Near the end of most sketches, Homey would lead a group of children (played by the adult cast members) in a call and response sing-along, which would end with him degenerating into an angry/paranoid rant then intimidating the children into repeating after him

Dont forget about head detective

My fav was Jamie Fox as Wanda

Home,

"Carlito
Why all the negativity & sarcasm"

Because my full name is Carlito Bilderberg Rothschild. Now get your aluminum foil hat ready before I send my reptilian warriors, assassins, chemtrails , and HAARP weapons at you.

LOL much better carlito
Glad U Have the Knowledge

Goodnight All and Great Job On The Blog


Peace
Homey Outside D. Box

Just out of curiosity....If that were Oakland's board with Al Davis would the title of this blog be:

"The Raiders draft board (the real Russell) here"

Basically, boards don't mean squat. What matters is the win/loss record at the end of the season. White boards and A-holes don't matter much to me.

CARLITO. HULU IS BEST TO WATCH SNL AND THE DAILY SHOW .

Aloco,

I heard this last weeks SNL with Betty White was the best SNL in 10 years... I wouldn't know, I haven't seen it in 15...

Right now I recommend Bizarre Foods on travel channel...

The Dolphins don't want to release draft board because its not good for the guys they did pick to know who they had rate higher than them...

another name to watch that could be cut---and a possible dolphin target is jarred page--FS from chiefs---was on IR with a calf injury last year but there is a lot of specualtion he wasnt getting along with no regime ----(like a lot of guys over there)--

25 years old---has shown to be a playmaker---another accorn

CARLITO . I AM WATCHING BETTY WHITE IN SNL AFTER YEARS RIGHT NOW OF NOT WATCHING .

I RECOMMEND WATCHING THE DAILY SHOW ON HULU ,THE EPOSIDE WHERE JHON STEWART MAKE FUN OF CRAMER ON CNBC .

I know it's a little late but..... Waitin.... Waitin for the worms to crawl!

Does anyone know anything about the new uniforms?

There are no new uniforms... end of story...

Thank you Carlito

HOW CARLITO KNOWS THERE'S NO NEW UNIFORMS ?

Someone mentioned the sandbar in Islamorada earlier.What a place to see nude co-eds! A cool place to hang in Islamorada is The Islander Resort. A retro motor inn that serves The beds suck, but the service is great. My idea of what the Keys used to be. The OV(ocean view) is a great dive as well

DARRYL, HOW COME WITH A PLACE LIKE ISLAMORADA AND NUDE STUFF ,YOU HAVE SO MANT GAYS IN THE KEY ?

MANY GAYS IN THE KEY

That was me that mentioned the sandbar... went there on saturday

ALoco lives in the NorthEast, he knows nothing about the Keys

Carlito- Do you know the where the Islander is? A good friend of mine is the G.M. there. Her husband is a fishing guide down in Marathon. They have lived there for 30 years, call the great folks. Met them trout fishing here in Montana, Get a chance to go down there every few years. good times.
Aloco- I don't know why there are so many gays down there. I guess they enjoy the weather, and free spirit! i go down there to fish, and get sammied!

Call the great folks? They are great folks. Sorry got side tracked!

Yeah I know where the Islander is... its a nice place...

Aloco,

Most of the people like pricemaster are in Key West, that is 2 hours from Islamorada

If you look really close...
you will notice he had-

Lane Bryant
Anita Bryant
Bryant Gumbel
Kobe Bryant
and
Dez Arnez
All on their 1st round board

Go Phins!

Its just anatha tempt by tha man to-
contemplate and subjucate
the relation in the nation
of the recruit to the prostitute
and the attimpt to pimp
the MAN will question with intention
to invoke and provoke A BROTHA
as to make Peezy, queezy
along with
the transportation of the "Sack Abomination"
to the "PUKE GREEN" Nation
invoking substituton by the "BEAST"
of the "Feeble Kaneivel" to the land of the street car, Alcatraz and Rice a Roni
Protruted and concluded by the "Starks" reality of a immobilization to the middle of the pandamoniumousness

Don Shula is my selection for Supreme Court!

President Yomama!

Go Phins!

I just bought Manny Fernandez left side-burn on E-bay along with his cutoff denim shorts worn on the NFL films 73 season junket.

I also have a bid on Don Nottingham's dented shoulder pad from his rooke pre-season and Mercury Morris rookie mouth-peice.

Life is goog "FEZ"!

Go Herald Go Phins!

I also bid on a Tortilla with a likeness of the Virgin Mary on it and peice of toast with the likeness of Coach Shula's profile.


Go Phins!

Good Morning Farmers & Dolfans
Heart goes out to all those murdered,critically wounded and in the hospital with severe injuries from the once again more suspicious "severe weather destruction" in the USA yesterday as reported on CNN and other sources
Reports of 37 Tornadoes Ripped thru the Mid USA
and miraculously the death toll was light
Videos show the massive property & possession damage esp to the marina and 18 wheeled trucks
Stay tuned for more suspicious "severe weather disasters" within the week

Now on to Miami Dolphin football news
New Draft pick Reshad Jones at 6.2 and over 210 LBs. looks to be another terrific pick by the Trifecta
Reshad Jones
Can Put On The Hits and seems quite competent at playing Full Safety as well as Strong Safety
Look Forward to Seeing the development & play of this new Miami Dolphin Draft Pick

***** The Dynasty Be Fins! *****

A solid penetrating,dominatig pass rush up front can really help the secondary. Linebackers that can step a notch in coverage will really aid the young safeties.

Go Phins!

Creating Cam Wake as a Pass Rushing Specialist can be devastating weapon unleased on a
Opposing QB

Creating Many
Multi-Vortex Tornadoes & Simultaneously
Unleashing them in one region can be a
devastating weapon

Hmmm....

Yes Martin
Misi should do a much better job
Covering TEs than debacle dejour
We witnessed last season as Dolfans

I think I saw that Multi-Vortex Tornado thing on the Shop Erotic channel. That is just wrong!
What happened to Sham Wow and Ginsu knives late night?

Go Phins!

This team was subject to an NFL All-Star WR and Tight End tour last year! Serously it could have been a lot worse? No doubt Gerber Winslow was horrible back there. It was 6 or 8 major plays that if made? Moss, Garson, Shockey, Clark plays come to mind? 7-9 is 10-6?

Go Phis!

God Bless those suffering from the
"severe weather disasters" that are plaguing
the globe and are labeled as delivered only by
"Mother Nature" by the mainstream media and Sheeple
Hope both the stadiums and venues that have been
Severely & Suspiciously Flooded and Damaged like the Tennessee Titans Stadium which was flooded from the equivalent of
3 months of rain in only 48 hrs will be restored and ready for football season

Hmmm...

Mother///

Tell your children not to walk my way///
-Glenn Danzig

It's 1:30 AM on the West Coast...

Do you know where your wife is?

Buuahhhhaaaa!

Good Night Now!

Go Phins!

NostraHomeUs
Knowing that the USA government controls private media who only pretends to have freedom of speech and is forbidden to mention
The New World Order or HAARP
Severe Weather Created & Steered
at us and used as the
Worst Weapon of Mass Destruction
How do U expect the reporters to get the news to the masses of oblivious sheeple?

Penalties for talking or reporting anything but the slanted misinformation and washed satellite weather pictures permitted are that of termination, blacklisting and much more severe to include "death by an unfortunate & unlikely accident"

Do U think the Gannet publication
USA Today report on yodays internet was trying to tell us something
Using the phrase
"Onslaught of Storms" ?

and do U think the dumbed down oblivious sheeple will ever find out
The Truth?

Ignorance Is Bliss

Lets Please Stick To Football
Miami Dolphins Football In Particular

Do U Think The Dolphins First Round Pick
Jared Odrick
Will Be Better Than
New York Jet Jason Taylor

Will Jake Long
Be Able To Stop Jason Taylor
In Their First NFL Game Day Match Up
Here In Miami
