Prediction #2: The Cowboys will trade up in this draft

On Tuesday when answering questions during the Cowboys draft press conference, Jones alluded he was in a win-now mode and was not interested in rebuilding. If that is truly the strategy that the front-office wants to go by, expect them to try to trade up in the first-round. Jones said in the press-conference that not a lot of teams are willing to trade this year, but this could be a smokescreen. There are a lot of impact players that the team wants, but they may not be available at 16. While you would sacrifice the future for trying to get an impact player, this is a win-now approach and it would make sense to risk the future to win in the present. Jones traded up to pick #6 to get cornerback Morris Claiborne just two years ago, so he isn’t opposed to the option. Hopefully the pick turns out better than the Claiborne deal.

    I hope they don’t trade up. I would prefer trading down if Barr Donald and Martin are not there.

    If there is no shiny toys, not sure who they would trade up for. More thinking like Rich, moving back.
