Jerry Jones is still catching heat for his drafting; one expert called it ‘the worst in the NFL.’
In addition to the head scratching for taking a consensus lower rated offensive lineman Travis Frederick, Jones admits that the team wanted a defensive lineman.
Only time will tell, but the team’s draft room was deflated after the Frederick selection and clearly tired of Jones making picks against their draft board.
The owner turned GM explained that the team didn’t like the options at defensive tackle at either their original spot at 18 or when they traded down to 31.
"We are getting a little long in the tooth there at some of the spots, maybe," Jones said about his defensive line, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "Would you have liked the right 3-technique if he would have been there? Would we maybe have used that pick on one, if one was there? But he wasn't there. The 3-technique wasn't there at 18."
"We haven't put those kinds of resources over there," he said. "So if you really look at the balance of our team, I don't think it was really unwarranted that we look at the offensive side of the ball."
