Dak Prescott discussed on SportsCenter All Night
Way. He improved last year. Because you know plan on a half year the year before so Amari Mars an excellent fit. What I've always looked for receivers K. Play inside and outside. He could even play in the in the number three slot so the ability to move your receivers around Randall. Cobb no different. I thought Randall had a great year in Dallas last year. So the ability to move. Those guys around is very important in. Mars has done a lot of that already. And you mentioned your play caller and Kellen. How different is this all feel for you to to not be the play caller but also to be to be? Meshing Systems. Well I made the play caller. What through one time before in all learned from that so I'll be much better this time. The meshing of the system has been a challenge in plenty of moments. When when I think of what the hell am I doing here because I've been the same offense since one thousand nine hundred nine so I've been in the same language since nineteen eighty nine so this has been a change? There's there's a number of things I mean when you call Sally. Sally has been a screen for thirty years. Now it's a three step drop so you're adapting to everybody at studying. I got homework every night. So it's been fun though it's it's it's it's a good change in calendar changing them. It's there's there's things that that if we think it's cleaner on on a way you know I've done it. In the past. We implement that but for the most part we want. We WanNa keep as much as we can place because the office was so productive last year. Jason Witten has expressed that he knows playing a seventeenth. Years Cowboy is is up in the air. You also have Sean Lee who is also going to be an unrestricted free agent. How challenging or those types of decisions for you guys to have a bit really been a foundation of the organization auto definitely I mean. It's it's always a huge challenge in. I think even more so for you know for Jerry and Steven because it's I mean it's a family business and family's very important to the Joneses. You see that right away you can see that you see that in the interview process so so do you know just the way you go through. Those situations is important. But we're still talking through the roster Jason's situation and Sean Obviously Sabrina free agent. So you know. Hopefully things will work. Make you for spending some time with us. We'd be Jerry. Jones and company happened number of players scheduled to hit free agency during the off season. Highlighted by Dr Martin Cooper on the offensive side on Defensive Got Robert Quinn and Byron Jones but the Good News Dallas has nearly eighty million in projected cap space. That is the most in the league the NFL pushed the date that you could begin to franchise players from yesterday until tomorrow because of the ongoing talks either way whenever that date is and we expect it to be tomorrow. What are the chances we see? Dak Prescott Franchise deck is GonNa get but before we get to that. I mean you have to clear up what's going on with the CBS. Because you can't talk about it without laying out some context. They're basically teams now have to operate on last year's rule. So each team right. Now we'll have two tags a franchise tag and a transition takes the DALLAS COWBOYS. You can tag. Dak is a franchise player. You Could Tag Amari Cooper Rosa Transition Player. If that's what you decide to do now if the players approve the new CBA which we think is likely but certainly not sure thing then. At that point in time it would go back to one tech. So you could see a team tag a player like Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper and then have to withdraw one of the tags on one of the players so it creates an unprecedented type situation here that we haven't seen before so when you bring up the Dallas cowboys and you bring up Dak Prescott and the likely that it'll be tagged. Yes I think he does get the franchise tag but then the question becomes. Do they keep the transition tagging? Amari Cooper? Can't it's the new. Cba is approved so while there are players like Russell. Wilson and the penalty twins voting. No Amari Cooper should be voting. He's got as quick as he can right now with the big multi. Let's talk about the draft for just a minute. The cowboys will pick seventeenth. We know about Daqing Amari their situation. What needs they need to try and address in that first round the side of the ball for me and I think that's secondary thing about a Byron Jones thinking about what Mckenna safety spot who has a hidden jen. The people talking about enough was supposed to be grant felt that yellow shoe. He was going to be the top guy. Yanko Entry Seder mckinney over the field making plays for Nick Sabin in that defense. Cj Henderson's a quarterback out of Florida coverage not as good tackler but coverage wise. He's phenomenal and you think about. Aj F an ESA pass rushing defensive. End You can kick them inside of defensive. Tackle had a great finish the season at Iowa so like a defensive player. Todd would look really good in a cowboy uniform and some of those guys. I mentioned. I could be in play at that point. And if you're not able to get a deal done with Amari Cooper then maybe you're you're looking on day two if you go defense. Let's say let's say it's Xaver mckinney. Then in the second day second third third round I think wide receiver. This is one of the deepest wide receiver classes ever. It may set a record for the most receivers taken in the first round. And may set a record for the most receivers taken in the first three rounds. I've got twenty players right now. Wide Receiver that belong in the first three rounds so in the third round you can get a guy like Van Jefferson who we saw at the senior bowl who just showed up. And he's not. He's he's got good size. He's got average speed but the do just separates late and catches everything in his area code so to me would van Jefferson Third Round Michael Pittman the wide receiver. Michael Pittman Junior From USC in the second round is a possibility there are so many different options on the offensive side especially those skill positions that I would go defense first and then day to revisit the offensive pass rusher corner wide. Receiver probably is the order in which they go in. Pass rusher. There's not gonNA they're not gonNA be able to get a premium pass rusher when they pick safety. Look I mean there. There are some good players. Remember this to remember. Dallas was flirting with trying to get Jamal Adams that come down there so they know that they need somebody in the middle of the field and the back end. No question about that as far as Amari Cooper is concerned this this one as much as we talk about that. Prescott that one. That one's one that I think that whole contract situations one. I think bears watching even more so because of the fact that look at how some of the things played out on the football field late in the season with him. And why Jon Gruden let him go? Why Did Dallas Cowboys Right? Now have not signed him. Why The Dallas cowboys in a pivotal game against the Philadelphia? Eagles in a crucial moment. Decided that apart cooper just needed to be sitting there on the sideline I mean. This is a very interesting situation. See It's funny how people evaluate players and then value players. Because they don't always go hand in hand it's not going hand in hand with that. Prescott you evaluate them one way. But you can't seem to be able to establish a value for you evaluate Amari Cooper one white. But then you're not really value on him the same way and with Dallas in particular that seems to be what the crux of their problems right now and I wouldn't be going on exactly the disconnect her down conversion there's a disconnect or offense is so more productive with him in there but there's inclusion moments keeping things in Dallas they're gonNA lose Byron Jones and Free Agency and can you think of any teams in the NFC east the cowboys rebels that could use another wide receiver. Yeah let me think I would imagine. It's going to be very difficult for them to get Amari Cooper and less. Gm's think because of how deep the wide receiver draft. Is You know the value of drafting someone paying him. What we're going to pay him is much better than what we would have to pay to get Amari Cooper. Keep in mind well. We talked offense but on Defense Layton Band Arash the injury that he sustained not having him on the field. Roy impacted this football dramatically. He was a phenomenal rookie. He was going to be the centerpiece. He's out people. Don't talk enough. About Layton Vander ashes loss meant that football team in general. They didn't have an identity on offense. I gotTA get one zero lot of different issues beyond personnel. That cowboys at the fix first night of the twenty twenty draft April twenty third cowboys again picking seventeenth. We've got five teams with new head coaches for the two thousand twenty season Mike McCarthy as one you heard from him and Ron Rivera holding previous. Nfl Coaching Experience Rivera spent nine seasons. Carolina's head coach highlighted by a fifteen at one campaign in two thousand fifteen and a run to super bowl. Fifty here's Rivera on the plans for the draft before we do anything with a number two big. We got to see what happens with the number one pick pig goes on. We'll go from there but again as I said everything's an option. I mean we we. Were you know as far as talking with? We've talked a couple of times already. What situation potentially be but the truth is we got to see what happens in front of us well and that's from our ESPN nation reporter. David Newton Rivera says. The redskins will bring in quarterbacks Joe Bro and to a chunk of Lila says all options are on the table so mellon tide of two gets a clean bill of health. And you are the redskins. Do you take chase young arguably the best defensive not arguably the best defensive player in this draft or do you think about too. I think you have to first of all assume that Joe Borough is going to be the first overall pick and if that's the case now you're looking at chase young who's in my opinion going back last five years as talented and has its high of a grade is any other edge. Rusher in in the drought. So you're talking about like Nick Bosa Joey Bosa miles gary that kind of elite talent now to talk by low. If you have the medical information your staff says hey. He's clear I personally. He's an upgrade over Dwayne Haskins. But you have to know your owner and I don't think that you get the head. Coaching job knowing that Daniel Snyder is telling you okay. We're GONNA bring you in Mel Twain's got to be the guy at quarterback. Well do you think about the number two? Pick out valuable that if you WANNA go up and get to you can do it before the draft Philadelphia. How do they were gonNA get went through golf? And they were happy getting either. I think when you look at chase young I think the key there is the late. Season quietly wasn't those final three games with a let somebody else jump up there and get to a knowing. They got a ton of needs. The redskins do a lot of holes to fill so you can go variety of waste. Just Take Jae Kyung Pearl goes one take to get medical clearance and let him go like we just saw. Steve Young makes me a Steve Walsh and Troy Aikman? The only about Josh Rosen. Giving way to Cuyler Murray. So it's happened before if the greatest significantly better for two over Haskins and it probably will be if you feel like it's too much of a risk and you like Haskins then you maybe get offers Adam to move off of that picking a loud return. Well you could do that. But if you're the redskins and you are moving back you are saying yes. We're going to accumulate picks. But we're not going to be in position to go get shea showing unless you want to move back and then try to move back up again to ensure that get a player like that and Lou you said yesterday Redskins Love Jay show. Yeah they love chase young. You may not play around with that and you may not get cute but if you want to float out there and entice the bidders to come up to try to get one of the quarterback have at it and see what the value of the pig is especially considering the fact that look. I mean this is a team that has some nice pieces on the defense side of the ball but also a team that could use a plethora of picks in there and that number two spot may be in play. I know they chase young.
