It's not quite the same as the Lions drafting a wide receiver in the first round for five straight years or however long, but the Cowboys really have the market cornered on drafting linebackers.
Since 2005, the Cowboys have spent their first draft pick on a linebacker now four times:
2005: DeMarcus Ware, 11th pick (kinda worked out)
2006: Bobby Carpenter, 18th pick (kind of a bust)
2007: Anthony Spencer, 26th pick (improving but still unknown)
2009: Jason Williams 69th pick (who knows?)
