    Least favorite Josh Ball

  2. Matt Spencer-Mumme on May 21, 2021 at 1:14 am

    B- for me time will tell as always

  3. Jonathan Y on May 21, 2021 at 1:16 am

    Tom you and I were spot on for the Grand C and this could go either way. I REALLY dislike Josh Ball pick, has MAJOR OFF FIELD ISSUES.

  4. mojo jojo on May 21, 2021 at 1:17 am

    I disagree with him about Parsons…a freak athlete of his caliber is graded an A….BUT..I’m 100% behind him about Josh Ball…

    Your a clown

  7. Paul Frye on May 21, 2021 at 1:20 am

    Parsons A+ joseph A+

  8. Keaton Gollihare on May 21, 2021 at 1:21 am

    By far the coolest moment of young Tom Downey’s budding career @ 10:50. You’re welcome.

  9. Alfonso Cerda on May 21, 2021 at 1:23 am


  10. Ellison Lowrimore on May 21, 2021 at 1:24 am

    Parsons is THAT GUY!! I think over all it’s a B draft but it could end up being a A or an F. We will see!

  11. Broderick Johnson on May 21, 2021 at 1:24 am

    Wht is his off field issues,cuz I can’t find no legal situations…

  12. Paul Frye on May 21, 2021 at 1:25 am


  13. Roger Quintanilla on May 21, 2021 at 1:26 am

    I like Downey but stay out of politics. There are lots of gold diggers out there and there is always two sides. I you chose someone on accusations you would have half the NFL players out.

  14. Gregory Jones on May 21, 2021 at 1:27 am

    What have the "Right Kind of Guys" gotten us? The 90’s Cowboys had all kinds of character issues and they hoist 3 SB’s 4 straight NFC championship game.. we needed some Dawgs on this team I agree with your opinion of Ball but he’s a Cowboys now maybe he will hit some defensive edge rushers in the mouth.

  15. Erick Fellenbaum on May 21, 2021 at 1:28 am

    I agree with Josh Ball, first time maybe a horrible mistake, 11 times makes you an asshat, twice makes you an asshat

  16. Cinch McCoy on May 21, 2021 at 1:31 am

    tom downey knows nothing about football or what the cowboys need he is really just a manscaped salesmen

  17. Alfonso Cerda on May 21, 2021 at 1:31 am


  18. Jed Steelwell on May 21, 2021 at 1:32 am

    At least they drafted defense but I didn’t like the round 1 pick either! The delusions run strong in these comments!

  19. Erick Fellenbaum on May 21, 2021 at 1:33 am

    Agree somebody please explain the Nashorn pick in that slot

  20. Alfonso Cerda on May 21, 2021 at 1:35 am

    Went off on josh ball.😬😬…. loved it

  28. Fernando Cruz on May 21, 2021 at 1:48 am

    I give it a C for the draft class

  29. pudge60 on May 21, 2021 at 1:50 am

    Is there any proof that Ball did anything? U can’t just say the school suspended and there was 11 times she said he did it. I remember the dude from Oregon lost his career over some lies that a woman said. NFL suspended Zeke for some lies a woman said…and where was this energy when Dez beat his mom…I’m sure he still one of ur favorite players though

  30. Alfonso Cerda on May 21, 2021 at 1:51 am


  31. Ernest Edwards on May 21, 2021 at 1:51 am

    If they would’ve picked A. Samuel, how long would have Joseph lasted on the board?
    The poor choices like with Ball, (character wise) is the reason why the Cowboys won’t win a another Super Bowl. It’s about making great choices. They get hung up on a player and they can’t see anything else.

  32. Willie Osburn on May 21, 2021 at 1:53 am


  33. Maximillian Thomas on May 21, 2021 at 1:54 am

    B by years end could become an A don’t believe me just watch.

  34. Terence Lang on May 21, 2021 at 1:54 am


  35. Josh Harris on May 21, 2021 at 1:56 am

    Considering our defense last year.. can’t get worse.. lol

  36. Roger Bourgault on May 21, 2021 at 1:56 am

    Jabril Cox

  37. Ebony Avenger Stevenson on May 21, 2021 at 1:57 am

    That domestic violence STUFF is unacceptable.

  38. Ebony Avenger Stevenson on May 21, 2021 at 1:57 am

    People just being people…."off field character issuel"… I give this draft a B- give it time their defense will he strong.

  39. Morik F on May 21, 2021 at 1:58 am

    Josh Ball is my favorite pick, Micah least favorite.

  40. Inte Clinic on May 21, 2021 at 1:58 am


  41. Abhinav Rayanki on May 21, 2021 at 1:58 am

    I actually liked the Cowboys draft. I give it a B+ grade.
    Micah Parsons= This was a great pick. He was the best defensive player available on the board at this time and it filled a need for the cowboys because LVE cannot stay healthy and Jaylon Smith is a liability in coverage. Cowboys needed a LB and they got a stud in Parsons.
    Kelvin Joseph= This is actually an extremely good pick. Alot of the experts had him as a first round talent. he fell due to "off the field" concerns. I watched film on him and i understand why he is a first round talent. He is inexperienced but he has great ball skills, good size, and great speed. Fluid with his movements. He is not a guy who will get beat deep—-hence why he shut down Devonta Smith in the Alabama game. This was the one corner in the draft that did good against Devonta Smith so i’d say its a pretty damn good pick.
    Osa Odighizuwa= Not being a homer, but this is another great pick. People who think this is a bad pick need to watch film on this kid. He is 280 but he don’t play like he’s 280. He’s great at stopping the run. what’s even better is that he is not a dude that gets pushed back. when he gets double teamed, he pushes the double team into the backfield. He also offers great pass rush ability
    Chauncey Golston= Yes, this may be a round early for him but this is still a good pick. not a great pick but its a good pick. Golston is not a dude who will disrupt the QB but he will disrupt the run game effectively. He has long arms and is a power playing DE. he is big as well. He is great at stopping the run and will help the cowboys’ putrid run defense.
    Nahshon Wright= this pick i agree with you on. This was a reach.
    Jabril Cox: absolute stud. huge steal. one of the best cover Linebackers in this draft and will help the cowboys tremendously because Jaylon is a liability in coverage. Him and Parsons go well with each other. A+ pick.
    Josh Ball= I gave this pick an F but not because of his talent. I gave it an F+ because of his character. I am against drafting women abusers. But, if we are grading based off of on field talent. This dude is a top 100 player—on film, he is super athletic, big dude, and quick with his feet. Not just me, but even all the draft experts say he is a 2nd-3rd round talent. So if we are basing grades off of talent, this is an B+ to an A pick.(i gave it a F because i am against drafting women abusers. i do not care if he has changed or not)
    Simi Fehoko= A+ pick here. Dude is a monster on special teams. He is 6’4 but has tremendous speed. wins matchups. can run right past defenders. Will be great slot receiver
    Quinton Bohanna: FATTIES ONLY 2021. This is not a great pick but its a good pick. will help with cowboys run defense because this dude is a space eater. He will help keep the linebackers clean and this will allow micah parsons to roam around and unleash his athleticism.
    Israel Mukuamu: Liked this pick as well. Sleeper pick here. This guy is long, physical, and has great ball skills. had great production at south carolina. has a knack for the ball. He is also a great tackler. he is a good corner and has all the traits to be a Free safety as well.
    Matt Farniok: Offers position flex. Can play Guard, tackle, and center. solid depth piece here.

    Overall, the cowboys did not have "flashy" picks, but they definitely had a good draft and they definitely improved that defense tremendously. B+ draft IMO.

  42. Father Time on May 21, 2021 at 1:58 am

    With Josh… none of us were in that room with them, so I won’t take it that far. Who knows if he is getting, or has gotten his life together, but I don’t feel like it’s fair to judge immature boys. Who fuq up in their youth.

    People F up, no excuses but I don’t know what the hell happened. So I’m saying let’s go from here. If he is a woman beater he author be jailed and likely will be of it’s just in him, but we don’t know what really happened.

    Someone literally just said the same 💩 about Diggs and we could have crucified him but we found out it wasn’t legitimate maybe 🤔🤷🏾‍♂️

  43. Morik F on May 21, 2021 at 2:01 am

    Never knew a Micha who wasn’t a disrespectful turd.

  44. Anthony Tate on May 21, 2021 at 2:01 am

    Parsons is the best defensive prospect in the draft, yet you grade them a "C". Enough reason to unsubscribe.

    Ain’t gonna lie, love your brutal honesty. 👍👍👍👍

  48. Fairweather NYC on May 21, 2021 at 2:06 am

    Fairweather Prediction: Parsons will have the impact of DeMarcus Ware. Joseph the impact of Terrence Newman. Cox the impact of Dexter Coakley. 0dighizuwa the impact of Jay Ratliff. Gholston the impact of Anthony Spencer.

  49. Junior Boyd on May 21, 2021 at 2:06 am

    Micah Parsons will be a pro-bowl linebacker. I LOVE the pick considering Horn and Surtain were gone. Only picks I would of drafted instead of Parsons is Florida State corner or Va tech corner but Dallas needed help big time stopping the run. Jarbril Cox and Parsons are really good backers. Parsons more of a come down hill LB and Cox better coverage LB. I was losing my mind when people had Dallas taking Kyle Pitts.

    A wise man once said "It ain’t the Boy Scouts". Can’t say they aren’t trying to improve the D!
