Flashback to that draft weekend. The Cowboys, coming off an incredible season, were picking No. 27. That meant all of the top tier players would be long gone by the time Dallas got on the clock. The majority of Cowboys Draft Twitter had focused on UConn defensive back Byron Jones as the best prospect in that tier, and all were rewarded when he made it past potential suitors.

Randy Gregory, considered a Top 10 talent, slid because of a failed marijuana test at the scouting combine (spoiler alert, it mattered).
