If he moved in any direction in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft, it would be backwards. He was as good as his word as he traded the 18th pick in the 2013 NFL draft to a much better team than his, the San Francisco 49ers, last year’s NFC Super Bowl representative. Sitting at number 31, Jones and his brain trust (I use that phrase cautiously and reluctantly) selected the lumberjack-looking center out of Wisconcin, Travis Frederick. Certainly, the Cowboys needed to address the interior line. They needed someone tough and tough-minded protecting Romo from the thing that gives him the most trouble, a pass rush right up the middle.

You don’t do all this stupidity to draft a backup offensive lineman...

Are the Dallas Cowboys planning the unexpected?? An actual high scoring Offense....
