Mike Adams likes Cowboys' draft move
By Richard Durrett
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers reliever and Dallas Cowboys season-ticket holder Mike Adams was pleased that the Cowboys made a bold move in the first round, trading up to get LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne on Thursday.
The Rangers were off, giving many members of the team a chance to relax with their families and maybe even catch part of the draft. Adams, who has a Cowboys helmet in his locker at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, was glad that Dallas shored up the cornerback position.
"I was happy with it," Adams said. "I thought it was good. I really do. We had problems there last year and it wasn't too much to give up for that. I think the secondary was something they had to address."
Adams has a list of positions he wants the Cowboys to try to fill in the later rounds of the draft.
"They need to get another offensive lineman and maybe even running back depth," Adams said. "But I think the offensive line is another need."
