6. CB Morris Claiborne A-I don’t normally like when teams with a lot of needs trade up, but the Cowboys traded up 8 spots into the top 6 in a year where the consensus was there were 6 elite prospects and they did it inexpensively, only giving up a 2nd round pick. Claiborne fills a need.81. 3-4 DE Tyrone Crawford C+This pick I didn’t like as much. When you need help at as many areas as the Cowboys do (G, C, WR, DE, OLB, CB, S) and you trade away your 2nd round pick, you can’t afford to miss on a pick, which is what I think Crawford is. I had a 5th round grade on him and liked him a lot more in a 4-3 as a left end than in a 3-4 because of his size at 275. That’s a little small for a 3-4.113. RLB Kyle Wilbur AThis pick I like a lot more. They need a developmental rush linebacker behind DeMarcus Ware and Wilbur is has good pure pass rushing abilities and experience in the 3-4.135. S Matt Johnson C-I didn’t have Johnson in my top 250 so the late 4th round is way too early for him. He doe...

With the draft in the bag, there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel, and the roster has turned a corner for the best. Coach Garrett has methodically jettisoned players that do not fit his philosophy, and is plugging-in his type of players.
Drafting Morris Claiborne was a major statement pick, and set everyone on the team on notice, the Cowboys have no problems upgrading...
According to ProFootballWeekly.com, the Dallas Cowboys may end up having rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne return kickoffs this season, which is a big risk since it would increase his chances of getting seriously injured.
Most teams don’t have starting players return kickoffs or punts, but the Cowboys seem to feel the risk is worth it for them to have wide receiver Dez Bryant...
According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, the Dallas Cowboys remain open to trading veteran cornerback Mike Jenkins, even though there were some reports that people within the organization would rather keep him.
The problem right now is that there aren’t any teams interested in acquiring Jenkins. There’s some concern about his participation in the Cowboys offseason program...
"Don't get me wrong, I would walk from here to New York to get that second pick back. But I would not walk if I had to give the player back." -Jerry Jones
As the first round of the 2012 draft came to a close late Thursday night and the Twitter buzz slowly wore off, Cowboys' nation celebrated a bold move that landed the best defensive prospect on the board. Dallas...
Roy Williams: One of the worst players who made the most money (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Jerry Jones and staff have made some bad personnel moves. I think we could all accept that statement as fact. However, it might be more difficult to come to an agreement about players to whom the Cowboys have paid too much money.
A writer for Bleacher Report has a couple of ideas. Amber Lee has...
Drafting cornerback Morris Claiborne last week should go a long way in improving the Dallas Cowboys' poor pass defense from the past two seasons. But Claiborne could potentially help in more areas than just covering wide receivers.
The player the Cowboys openly admitted was the top defensive player on their draft board could also be used to return kicks, something he did at...
The Dallas Cowboys made a bold move by trading into the top 10, but they got a great deal from the Rams and have now solidified their most glaring weakness on defense.
Normally I’m critical of teams that trade up as far as the Cowboys, but only because of the price tag associated with climbing into the top 10. The Cowboys, however, were able to hang on to their 2013 1st-round...
It started in 2006, the year Dallas Cowboys Full-Back Lawrence Vickers was drafted into the NFL. Lawrence Vickers came into the NFL and played Full-Back for the Cleveland Browns. Vickers brought the full-back position the the lime light in Cleveland. He won the fans over quickly with the way he played the position, Vickers was the lead blocker and believe me, when he led people followed...
TMZ Army was out on the prowl on Sunset Boulevard on Monday night when they happened upon ex-Dallas Cowboys quarterback and current FOX NFL color guy Troy Aikman standing outside Boa. Aikman, who was divorced from his wife Rhonda in January 2011 after 10 years of marriage, did not seem very pleased with TMZ’s intrusion, [...]
Out for the first time since the birth of their first child (Hawkins Crawford Romo) on April 8, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and his wife Candice Crawford headed to DC over the weekend for White House Correspondents' Dinner. Despite popping out an 8lb 8oz human out of her vajayjay a mere three weeks ago, the former Miss Missouri (and sister of Gossip Girl's Chace...

There were a lot of moves made over the 3 days of the 2012 NFL Draft, but if I had to pick my favorite it would have to be the Dallas Cowboys moving up 8 picks to select CB Morris Claiborne with the 6th pick of the draft. Claiborne is a unique talent who will bring much needed help to a secondary who ranked 23rd in the NFL in passing yards allowed last season. The Cowboys have already...
