Cooley's Draft Day Story

I did not see this posted anywheres else, so mods if you need to move it please do.

The Cooley Zone: My draft day story has a happy ending - Shutdown Corner - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

I really like the part where he said that Bill Parcells called him in and said "I'll be honest, the reason you're here is because we like you as a special teams player. I don't think you'll ever be a starter in the league. We're thinking about taking you around the sixth round."
I'm glad that Coach Gibbs decided to trade to get him.

Special teams player LOL

Just goes to show how subjective the draft evaluation process is. One man's trash is another man's treasure.

Re: Cooley's Draft Day Story

I wonder how Bill felt every time he saw Cooley score a TD against Cowgirls

LOL on the flipside I'm sure Cooley loved every second of it.

Re: Cooley's Draft Day Story

Parcells probably tells that to every guy (not Lawrence Taylor), just to make them prove him wrong.

yeah but that probably doesnt help if that player isn't on your team yet! lol I doubt he meant it that way, he probably just didnt value him that high.

Re: Cooley's Draft Day Story

Cooley's the best. After Parcells dissed him, it's great that Cooley has tortured the Cowboys the last few years. There's no other Skin that I'd more like to hang out with and have a couple beers.

I just tried dialing 703-726-7000, and yes, it is still the Redskins telephone number!!! I told them to draft DE in the first round - just kidding ;-)
