NFL Draft 2013: Jaguars class from leaked Cowboys draft board

USA TODAY Sports

Offensive tackle Luke Joeckel was the top-ranked player for the Cowboys in the 2013 NFL Draft, but half the Jaguars draft class didn't even make it on the team's draft board.

Three years ago the Dallas Cowboys published a photo from inside the war room that featured the draft board in plain sight with pieces obscured from view by people. Through screenshots taken from within the war room during the 2013 NFL Draft, SB Nation's Cowboys blog, Blogging the Boys, was able to piece together the entire board from the most recent draft.

Needless to say, the thinking process of Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones shouldn't be expected to line up with that of new Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell; however, it's interesting to see how one team graded the players that were eventually selected at the end of April. Particularly, it's interesting to see how the Cowboys graded the players that were selected by the Jaguars.

The Cowboys ranked offensive tackle Luke Joeckel as the best player in the draft class, but evidently didn't think very highly of second round pick, Jonathan Cyprien, as he was ranked as a third-round pick by the team. Also listed as a third-round safety, interestingly enough, was Dwayne Gratz, who was selected by the Jaguars as a cornerback early in the third round.

The only other Jaguars draft pick that was on the Cowboys draft board was seventh-round cornerback Demetrius McCray, as Ace Sanders, Denard Robinson, Josh Evans and Jeremy Harris were all surprisingly absent. Head over to Blogging the Boys for a full look at the Cowboys perspective on the 2013 NFL Draft.
