Fans decipher the Dallas Cowboys draft board shown off by Jerry Jones; New York Jets get 2 of Dallas’ favorite players

The Dallas Cowboys surprised many when they selected Tulsa offensive tackle Tyler Smith with the 24th overall pick in the first round of the 2022 NFL draft. Smith was widely seen as a second-round prospect, so it was a mild surprise when Roger Goodell called his name in the latter portion of the first round.

During a press conference after the draft, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones attempted to prove that the Cowboys really did have Smith ranked higher on their draft board than Zion Johnson and Kenyon Green, two offensive linemen who were taken earlier in the first round. Jones jokingly flashed a piece of paper toward the cameras that included the top of Dallas’ draft board.

“We had both of them [Johnson and Green]; this was printed three days ago; below [Smith]. Both of those players are below [Smith]. Can you see that?”, Jones said, proceeding to show reporters the team’s board.

“I’m dead serious,” Jones said regarding the team’s surprisingly high ranking for Smith.

It’s difficult to make out the information on the piece of paper in the above video, but fans on Twitter worked together to decipher the list, revealing the top 16 players on Dallas’ draft board.

When you compare the lengths of the player and school names, it seems like the fans nailed it.

New York Jets fans will be pleased to know that their team snagged two of the top five rated players on Dallas’ board. Cincinnati cornerback Ahmad Gardner, chosen fourth by New York, placed fifth on the Cowboys’ board. Ohio State wide receiver Garrett Wilson, chosen 10th by the Jets, placed fourth.

Despite their playoff woes, the Cowboys have actually been one of the best drafting teams in the NFL throughout the past decade, so this is a promising sign for the Jets. Dallas’ draft picks from 2013 to 2021 have combined for 26 Pro Bowl appearances. Their rankings probably offer slightly better predictive value than those of the average NFL team or the average NFL draft analyst.

Cowboys passed on Jermaine Johnson for a reason. Curious , that Jerry didn’t pick up the call from Joe Douglas. Cine at 13, wow.

It’s not like I know anything, I don’t. But I like JJII. His journey, his great character and his tools. Maybe I’m missing something but I love the pick.

I liked JJ over Thibs, attitude, seemed to be a better fit for Saleh’s “ All Gas No Brakes”. Cringed at Thibs interviews after the Giants drafted him. I really don’t want any part of him now, good luck Giants.

When you think about it, there are fewer high end Edge rushers than QBs in the NFL. It’s a hard position. Give me the high motor, high character guy every time. I’m rooting for this guy and I think Jet fans will love him. In fact, I think the whole class exudes character and humility, I’m very impressed by all of them as men. I know that doesn’t win games, except that it does. 🙂

It feels good the team actually has NFL talent. They have been playing varsity with JV playerss for too long. This team is still young with a lot to prove but I feel strongly they finally have the leadership to get everything they can out of each player. They also seem to actually have a plan, now we just have to see that plan work. I would love Joe to find a LB, a pro, who can fill a spot and play well while the younger guys improve. I’d also like to see an insurance OT knowing there are ?’s with health consistency. To me the two most important factors in determining if the Jets improve are: Zach needs to be an NFL QB, and Lawson needs to come back and not show signs of slowing from that injury. If those 2 things happen the team should be on their way.
