Cowboys 1st Rd Draft History Under Jerry With Jimmy and Bill Vs. Without

We are just a few hours from the NFL draft starting, and just a few hours from the Cowboys likely screwing up the No. 9 pick. I'm kidding. I hope. 

Jerry Jones is running the Cowboys' draft room this year, which usually isn't a good thing. For some reason a few of us have an idea that with Jason Garrett as the definite head coach maybe this time the direction will be a little different. As in there will be a direction this time.

This is what I know: Under Jimmy Johnson and Bill Parcells the Cowboys seemed to draft better. Overall.  With Jerry as The Man Making the Call, it feels more hit or miss. Below is the list of Cowboys' top draft picks with Jerry as the GM in charge.
