Will the Cowboys be players in the draft?
Whenever Jerry Jones starts talking about the Dallas Cowboys draft plans he just can’t help himself and will throw out subtle hints that something big is going to happen.
Whether it’s in passing in an impromptu interview, the press conference leading up to the draft or on 105.3 The Fan, he’s going to throw some chum in the draft talk waters for people to devour. An just like clockwork rumors are spreading that the Cowboys are planning on making a big splash in the draft.
Now like I said we’ve heard this before from Jones and nothing has happened that many consider a big splash since the Cowboys moved up to get Morris Claiborne in 2012. Since that time the Dallas Cowboys have moved down in the draft and only came up once more when they drafted DeMarcus Lawrence in 2014.
Now I do believe that if there is a player like South Carolina’s Javon Kinlaw that slips into their range Jones might pull the trigger on a trade up.
But he could also mean that the ‘splash’ is more trading down to gather more picks to fill in holes that the team will most definitely have with 25 players going into free agency.
That would be the smarter move in my opinion and one that I’m sure Jones has been thinking about and discussing with his son and head coach Mike McCarthy.
Survey Says: I believe this rumor is true. But the Dallas Cowboys won’t be trading up, they’ll be trading down.
