2011 NFL Draft Grades: Rick Gosselin Gives Cowboys B Grade

Rick Gosselin didn’t sound enamored with the Cowboys draft after their peculiar second day, but a strong third day bumped them up to a B on his draft grades. Gosselin particularly liked Dwayne Harris and J.T. Thomas.

“The Cowboys had a superb third day of this draft. Harris is a Kelvin Martin clone and the arrival of Arkin and Nagy will help Smith make the offensive line deeper and more competitive. Murray can solve a running back riddle.”

Whether Murray can actually solve that running back riddle is the biggest question surrounding the Dallas draft. Gosselin’s ranking of No. 84 on his top 100 doesn’t sound like solution material, but he was more positive when discussing the pick live Saturday.

While most observers liked the New York Giants’ haul of Prince Amukamara, Marvin Austin, Jerrel Jernigan and James Brewer better than the Cowboys’ draft, Gosselin actually gave the Cowboys the highest grade in the NFC East.
