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 they’re one or two pieces away from contention. The Cowboys have overhauled their secondary this offseason, fixing the only glaring weakness on the roster.

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.

The Cowboys did part with their 2nd round pick...

Dallas Cowboys: I Smell Trading in the Wind

The Cowboys need to fill a lot of holes on their roster yet and need a second round pick to do it. They only way they can do that is to trade more picks or start clearing the roster. The only question is who will they trade to get there. Jenkins time in Dallas could be done. The first two players that come to mind are Mike Jenkins and Felix Jones. It would surprise me to see either...

Through all the mock drafts and all the interviews Cowboys fans were convinced that either Mark Barron, David DeCastro or even Michael Brockers would be selected in the first round.
