Cowboys could trade down in draft
By Calvin Watkins
IRVING -- If the season ended today, the Cowboys would get a Top 10 pick in the draft. Dallas is tied with Arizona and San Francisco for picks six or seven.
NFL draft expert Mel Kiper thinks the Cowboys might trade down here because the offensive line is a need. But Kiper projects some offensive linemen to go later in the first round so moving down isn't out of the question.
Here's what Kiper said about the Cowboys' needs: "I don't think the Cowboys regret the Dez Bryant pick, but now Dallas is in a peculiar spot, much like Buffalo, in which it may not get the best value with its pick if it goes with a tackle. If one of the CBs isn't here, this is a good place to trade down and address the O-line later in the first round."
