Our network's Cowboys site, Blogging the Boys seems to have stumbled upon its team's Draft board in 2016. Where did the players the Jets drafted rate? The Jets and Dallas clearly had two different sets of evaluations.

*While the Jets used a fifth round pick to draft Shell, they acquired that pick with a fourth rounder, essentially making the investment a fourth round pick.
If you read the full article, you will see that they could not fully account for all of the names so it is possible Hackenberg showed up somewhere on the Dallas board.
Still, this shows the two teams had two very different valuations on the players the Jets picked. The Cowboys were not as high on these guys.
We won't know for years which side is right. I just can't get enough information about how teams in the league think so I wanted to pass this along.
