Cowboys don't believe they can get pick back
The Cowboys do have a third-round pick tonight, the 81st overall selection.
Team executive vice president Stephen Jones said it's doubtful the Cowboys can get back into the second round.
"I don't foresee it but I didn't foresee this either," Jones said, alluding to the Claiborne trade. "It's just expensive and I just don't see it. I don't want to mortgage our future. We're just going to have to be content. It's going to be painful but we knew that was going to happen watching 32 good players go off the board this round. But we're very pleased with Morris. We'll just think about him when they're coming off."
Jones said the trade with St. Louis to get Claiborne, considered the best corner in this year's draft, was still surreal 24 hours later.
"Yeah, a little bit," he said. "Obviously it was a unique opportunity and everything had to fall into place. He was the only player we would go up for and he had to slide to six."
