On the surface it seems Executive Vice President, and Director of Player Personnel Stephen Jones did the right thing, however, in his own draft room there is frustration, including coach Jason Garrett. The issue is who they drafted, Travis Frederick out of Wisconsin. Frederick wasn’t considered the best center in the draft, furthermore, he was considered to be a mid round pick. With Cal's Brian Schwenke who is a consensus selection for top center and Alabama's Barrett Jones running close behind him on the board, Jones bypassed them both for Frederick. The team’s draft room became deflated when Jones made the pick. The Cowboys drafting woes is the past few year are well documented, but in the most important draft for the Cowboys, it’s an ominous beginning. According to Brandon George of the Dallas News, the move to trade back and the selection is a true indication of the dysfunction within the team’s ranks. Jason Garret seemed drained from all his in fighting with Jones, scouts were deflated, not a good way to build a team. George writes: ‘This time around, there weren’t any smiles or high-fives among the Cowboys’ executives in the team’s draft room at about the time Dallas’ first-round trade appeared to go down with San Francisco. Garrett and Cowboys assistant director of player personnel Tom Ciskowski didn’t look happy after Stephen Jones hung up the phone. They were both slumped back in their chairs. Garrett, at one point, had a blank look across his face as he started rubbing his forehead with his hand. Ciskowski and Stephen Jones also had an animated exchange. It was a rare show of emotion by Ciskowski.’
