Reports are coming out that the Cowboys are actively planning a move that will garner them a 2nd round pick for tonight’s draft. The Cowboys obviously are trying to recoup a pick since they gave their’s up to move up for Claiborne. PFT is reporting that the Cowboys are actively shopping CB Mike Jenkins. I think this is a good idea, we still have Scandrick who has been the primary guy to come in for substitutions for oft injured Newman and Jenkins, so moving him would be the ideal situation for all parties. I’m almost sure they will be able to strike a deal. There aren’t any “premier” corners remaining today, so this would surely entice a team to bite. Jenkins is a quality player, but the injuries and consistency have plagued his career in Dallas. If the Cowboys can get a 2nd round pick straight up that’ll be draft gold for Dallas, if not, they may have to package Jenkins plus a later round pick. I wouldn’t discount the idea of trading Felix Jones as well, he was rumored as a draft b...

Dallas Cowboys select Morris Claiborne, Grade A

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...

Report: Cowboys don’t expect Mark Barron to be available

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...

1st Round Winners: Dallas Cowboys

I typically don’t praise teams that trade up as far as the Dallas Cowboys, but I have to give them credit for addressing a glaring need with the best player at the position. By adding Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne, the Cowboys have completely overhauled their secondary and now have, at least on paper, the look of a top-10 defense. The Cowboys did part with their 2nd round pick...

Cowboys Will Be Busy Today

The Cowboys have (5) picks today, but will they be making trades here to pick up a few more picks? The Cowboys have gone heavy on defense with their first two picks, and rightfully so, but don’t be surprised to see a couple of more defensive players drafted. The Cowboys had quite a few defensive backs interviewed and worked out leading up-to the draft, so I can see the Cowboys...

Drafting Starters According to the Star-Telegraph, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he expects players drafted in the first three rounds to be starters.
