Occasionally, NFL draft twitter can be wonderful. Tuesday was one of those days.
Using a fuzzy, grainy and mostly illegible picture posted to Twitter by WFAA sports anchor Mike Leslie, a swath of fans, reporters and Dallas Cowboys-related websites spent hours Tuesday afternoon decoding the team’s draft board on social media. The end result was a remarkably entertaining thread that, by all accounts, appears to have decoded a large part of the top end of the Dallas draft board (which you can see at the bottom of this story).
If you’re counting, this is at least the fourth (!) time the Dallas draft board has been exposed through photos or video that made their way online. We’ll get to that in a bit. But this latest inadvertent exposure came directly from team owner Jerry Jones, who was basically asking for it when he held up a copy of the team’s player rankings in front of cameras.
