2012 NFL Draft Grades: Cowboys Earn 'A' Grade Through Day Two

The Dallas Cowboys don't even need to add another player in the second day to continue to earn an 'A' from SB Nation's Joel Thorman when analyzing the 2012 NFL Draft through the second day. That's because when you add such an impact player like Morris Claiborne at any point, the draft is pretty much successful no matter what you do. The Cowboys will also continue to add more depth and help at other positions in the coming rounds on Saturday.

Thorman writes, "Adding Morris Claiborne is huge, and it came at a reasonable price." That price was a second rounder to move up in place of the St. Louis Rams. The Rams themselves had a nice second day of the draft, but the Cowboys had a major weakness heading into the offseason in their aging secondary that lacked top shelf talent in a division that needs it. With Brandon Carr and now Claiborne, the Cowboys now own one of the top young tandems in the league.
