2016 Dallas Cowboys Draft: Gut Reaction

I like to think that during the deliberations in the Dallas Cowboys War Room throughout the 2016 NFL Draft that when a tough decision was on the table someone said, “Go with your gut.” The human belly is capable of making some great decisions when under pressure. I mean, how often do you look back at a decision in retrospect and say to yourself, “I should have gone with my...

WATCH: Jaylon Smith finding out he's headed to the Cowboys

Notre Dame linebacker Jaylon Smith would have been a top-five pick if he hadn’t suffered a devastating knee injury in the team’s Fiesta Bowl loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes.
