Post-Draft Outlook:
BEST PICK: Linebacker Rolando McClain: A physical force and a natural leader on a defense that has ranked 29th, 31st and 31st over the past three years. A common sense pick at No. 8 overall to address a major weakness.

A closer look at the Raiders' picks: Round 1/8 -- Rolando McClain, LB, 6-3, 254, Alabama, With tackles Trent Williams and Russell Okung off the board, the Raiders made McClain the highest selected linebacker in franchise history. - by The Sports Xchange

 Draft Scout *Rolando McClain News
08/29/14 - LB Rolando McClain is making progress in his return to the NFL after sitting out last season in semi retirement. He has shown flashes of the star potential that made him ninth overall pick of the Oakland Raiders in 2011. But he is not a finished product and the Cowboys are not counting on him to be the savior on defense. "I don't think Rolando is going to be the savior of this team," Jones said. "We don't have Sean Lee but Rolando does have the skill level to come in here and really add to what we can do. But we're going to need of him. But I don't want anybody to think I expect him to be Dick Butkus or even Sean Lee. That's not there. "You're a little excited when you see some of the things he does physically, but he hasn't played for a year and a half. Let's let him just come in here and when he gets in a game, he may be the fifth guy in or he may be coming in after we've had a couple of series, but let's watch him come in here and let us play. I say that because I don't want him or anybody else to think that we think he's the savior of our defense. That's not the way it is."
08/21/14 - LB Rolando McClain returned to practice Thursday after missing Wednesday with cramps. He is expected to play with the starters against the Dolphins Saturday.
08/20/14 - LB Rolando McClain missed practice Wednesday because of cramps. It's a concern because the team was giving him looks with the first team and he retired last season. The Cowboys are not questioning his desire at this point but it's important he prove he can be counted on to practice every day before being given a starting job.
08/17/14 - LB Rolando McClain led the Cowboys with 11 tackles against the Ravens. It was his first football action since 2012 when he was cut by the Raiders. He didn't play in 2013 after retiring twice with the Ravens. He sat out the preseason opener because of tightness in his quad. "I liked what 55 did out there," owner Jerry Jones said of McClain. "He got some good snaps, more snaps than I thought he might get and he did real well. We knew and felt that he was good in coverage and he showed tonight that he drops back good, got a good feel for coverage out there."
08/15/14 - LB Rolando McClain will take the field for the first time since 2012 when the Cowboys take on the Ravens in preseason game 2 on Saturday night. McClain was held out the preseason opener because of a quad strain. But he is finally healthy and ready to go in his attempt to show the Cowboys he is committed to playing football. The former 2010 first round pick of the Raiders was cut in 2012 after a run-in with head coach Dennis Allen. He signed with the Ravens but retired twice in the last year and never played a game. He signed with the Cowboys a few weeks before training camp, renewing his career. He could end up being the team's starting middle linebacker but he must show consistency in practice and games. He is already the most impressive playmaker at the position on the team.
