The Dallas Cowboys’ Big Board from April’s NFL Draft leaked to the public last week, courtesy of the fellows over at BloggingTheBoys.com. Whether this matters is debatable, since the reveal didn’t come until well after the draft, but it’s not that often that such a leak happens--perhaps because, while making such usually guarded information public may not hurt a team, it certainly won’t help, either.
Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones, whose draft day interview in front of the big board provided the source of the leak, doesn’t see it as a big deal.
“I’m a little hard-pressed to see where the issue is at all after the draft is over,” Jones said this week, per ESPN Dallas. “We don’t put anything up there that’s particularly sensitive. Those are the opinions and the work of our scouts. The fact that there might have been a player up there a round earlier or a round later than it is on a lot of other people’s boards or opinion doesn’t impact us.
“I don’t see the negative aspect of that information. We won’t make it a practice of publishing it but still, I don’t think it’s an important detail.”
