Deny this video from yesterday? Deny he's already lifting and squatting big numbers? Get a clue "mon".

I saw a similar video featuring Stephen Hawking once

IDK if he's got drop foot or not, but the kid is so talented I think someone will take a flyer on him at least in the mid rounds, maybe as high as the 3rd.

If he heels it will be the steal of the draft.  If not it will be an "oh well" pick.  3rd and 4th round picks go in the toilet all the time with out GM's losing their jobs.  Kids at a talent level it's worth the risk.

I wouldn't be unhappy if the Jets took a shot at him.  JMO , no MD

Players don't come back from nerve damage. a 7th might be too much for this guy that's how scary his situation is. a 2nd would be ludicrous

He's toast. Nerve damage is the death knell. I'll  be surprised if anyone drafts him at all.

Isn't what we know about this injury pretty close to Marcus Lattimore territory?  If so, maybe take a flyer on a miracle recovery in the 6th or 7th round.  Anything earlier than that is just a waste of a pick IMO.

Shawn Oakman is less risky. 

Good effort, fellas. Nailed it!

Still a waste of a pick, which I what I said.  Here's what he said about his recovery timetable after he was picked. 

"There's no recovery time because this is a process where we're relying on God to do his work," Smith said. "We have to be patient and you know the nerve can come back tomorrow. It's just a timing thing. Whenever it wants to come back, it'll come back."

Gee, that's encouraging.  Feel free to i-told-ya-so me after he plays a meaningful down though. 

(Btw, now that I've made my snarky response, I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the funniest post I have seen in a long time.  Go team score the points, lmao).

The future is now! Well, I mean. It's whenever Hack might be ready in a year or two, if at all. Then the future will be then. But mostly now! Because reasons! Go team score the points!

All it proves Jerry Jones is lucky he can't be fired by himself.  It was a dumb pick now , and will be in the future.   Organizations can't throw away high second round picks, as these misses tend to hurt an organization for years to come.    Thank God Jerry Jones isn't making decisions for my team.

Yes. Because the Raiders are a model franchise. Why don't we wait and see what happens with the player long term before the rush to judgement? Good lord.

Why don't you take your own advice. You were ready to spike the football because some team was dumb enough to waste a second round pick on him.    Let's see if he ever the player he once was, or gets on the football field for the Cowboys.(don't you think your response was a little premature.

I said he'd still get taken early. He did. Therefore my prediction was correct. 

Whether or not he ends up being a good player or not hasn't been determined yet. Therefore, you can't judge where he was taken yet, especially as a top ten talent.

Come get your crow fellas! Started for the Cowboys last night and made 7 tackles. His nerve is regenerating and he should be 100% soon. The Cowboys got a steal/stud and the Jets got Darren Lee. Which is why this team will never make the next step.

Because we didn't reach for the injured guy in the first round? Cowboys may have gotten a steal but they waited to round two to do it when a lot of experts expected the kid to fall further. I wouldn't have minded if we took the kid in round three or later but the risk to take him too soon I can understand

Also to be fair if the cowboys were successful at trading up for Paxton lynch as it was said they were aggresivly attempting to their draft may have looked very different in a terrible way as they wouldn't have gotten jaylen smith and possibly no dak Prescott. So let's not make this out to be a cowboys are great genius drafters and jets are terrible it is a crapshoot and they got lucky

Darron Lee had 10 tackles and a sack. 

Also, you said Jaylon Smith wasn't even worth drafting because he wasn't going to play. Just admit you're wrong and move on.

Lol. Lee is bad.

 

stats are stats. The dude talking about Jaylon Smith's 7 tackles seems to be ok with that analysis for his guy. I agree Lee was bad but if we are only measuring players by stats...

It's too soon to admit that. What happens the NEXT time he gets hurt.
