Adding Gregory to an offseason haul that also includes suspended defensive end Greg Hardy, the Cowboys have opened the door to questions about how they acquire players. But this is an organization that has always given second-and-third chances to players with off-field concerns. Ultimately, Gregory could be the best pure-pass rusher in the draft. And the Cowboys saw value in taking him with the No. 60 overall pick.
Jerry Jones always wants to win, but it feels like "win now" mode more than ever with Tony Romo turning 35. Gregory was the ultimate boom-or-bust pick for the ultimate boom-or-bust franchise.
This is only the second quarterback drafted in the Payton era, and the other one (Sean Canfield) was a seventh-round pick. Brees isn't at the end of the line yet, but the Saints want another option just in case.
- Atlanta coach Dan Quinn has final say on his roster, and they are definitely starting to look more like the Seahawks. The Falcons took a big cornerback (Jalen Collins) and a big-play threat at running back in Tevin Coleman. Look for Devonta Freeman and Coleman to form a committee at running back this year.
- The Buccaneers have drafted nine players since Lovie Smith took over at coach. They all play offense.
- I loved David Johnson throughout the draft process as a big back that could do everything well, including in the passing game. He landed in Arizona, the perfect spot to make an early impact.
- Congratulations to Hobart and William Smith's Ali Marpet. The No. 61 overall pick went to Tampa and is now the highest-drafted player from a Division III school in NFL history.
