If you haven’t seen the Cowboys pre-draft press conference be sure to check it out in its entirety. The most intriguing nugget was when Jerry Jones was asked about possibly trading up for one player in the draft. Jerry said the Cowboys have practiced “that exercise ALOT”. Is this just Jerry throwing out some pre-draft smoke, or is this real?
Jerry pointed out that this is the first draft with the new CBA, and basically its easier to make a move up in the draft than years before since its no where near as cost prohibitive in regards to the cap.
The Cowboys are at #14, but this intrigue makes you wonder who the Cowboys have been practicing a trade up for, is it still Mark Barron, or will the Cowboys just take fans for a major “whoa” moment and draft someone else. The Cowboys can probably move up 4-5 spots without spending a kings ransom and assure their target dons the star.
Stay tuned! tomorrow is going to be a roller coaster!

I absolutely love this trade for both teams.
The Dallas Cowboys now have one the game’s best duos at cornerback in Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr. Claiborne is arguably more NFL-ready than Patrick Peterson was a year ago (at least in terms of coverage) and will make an immediate impact in Dallas.
As for the trade, I’m ok with teams trading up for players when they believe...
According to Rotoworld.com, ESPN’s Ed Werder reported that the Dallas Cowboys don’t anticipate Alabama safety Mark Barron being available when they’re on the clock with the 14th overall pick.
“The sense I get among the Cowboys right now, is that they understand that Mark Barron is unlikely to be available to them,” Werder said. “… They seem somewhat content with that...
The Dallas Cowboys addressed some of their pressing needs with a flurry of free-agent signings
They added two veteran offensive linemen who are expected to be starters, got a proven backup for quarterback Tony Romo, a starting cornerback, a safety, a linebacker and a fullback.
Now they need to get really defensive in the NFL draft, starting with their No. 14 overall pick Thursday...
The Cowboys were busy in free agency and I would expect them to sign a few more players before everything is said and done with. The Cowboys took care of their seemingly top issues with signing two guards and Brandon Carr to replace Terrance Newman but that does not mean they will draft a player at those positions either. So based on based on these recent signings, here is a list...
After the Cowboys drafted him in the first round, Morris Claiborne said that the only reason he performed so poorly on the test was because he "only finished 15 or 18 questions."
Dallas Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones can see his Cowboys trying to move up in tonight’s NFL Draft to gain a big time defensive play maker. Jones knows the Cowboys picking in the first round at 14 may need to improve their spot if they do indeed plan to get a top play makers. At the present time Jerry Jones is leaving the door open for any number of possibilities...
Back in March, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman claimed that Tony Romo is a better quarterback then he was when he played in the 90′s and won three Super Bowls.
Romo told Ian Rapoport of NFL.com that he doesn’t belong in the same conversation as a guy like Aikman.
“I think first, whenever Troy Aikman says anything in a positive way about you as a quarterback, it...
IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Jerry Jones says the Dallas Cowboys have been able to do everything they wanted to do this offseason despite the NFL reducing their salary cap.
The NFL took away 10 million in cap space from the Cowboys and 36 million from the Washington Redskins. The two NFC East teams were penalized for overloading contracts in the 2010 uncapped season despite league warnings...
It doesn't look like Cowboys' QB Tony Romo will be sitting down on Thursday to watch the NFL draft. It's too "monotonous" he told ESPN reporter

According to the Star-Telegraph, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he expects players drafted in the first three rounds to be starters. Not necessarily Day 1 starters, but soon.
“Day 1 starters? You can’t say that. Nobody can say that, but at some point in their careers, you would like to think that they’re a starter, and the sooner the better,” Garrett...
A few have suggested that the Dallas Cowboys might move up in the 2012 Draft, but almost nobody counted on what happened.

The first round of the NFL Draft is happening later this evening, and the Cowboys are sitting on the 14th overall pick. Several names have come up as potential picks for Dallas, so let’s run through a few here: Option 1: David DeCastro, OG, Stanford. DeCastro is being touted as the best guard to come [...]
Deion wasn’t arrested, but his claims that he didn’t do anything wrong do not appear to be 100% true.
There is at least some doubt in the police mind that Deion was innocent in the incident.
