    Is Dallas Working a Six-Player Card?

    It takes two to tango. We've played the trade-down drill for weeks. The Rams at 14, the Pats and Chargers at 17 and 18 have been the most likely prospects on Dallas' draft dance card. But might other teams be in the mix? Might other teams closer be in the Cowboys' plans?

    Let's take Matt Mosley at his word. He cited Valley Ranch sources in an ESPN Radio chat yesterday that Dallas was hoping to trade and would consider moving down to 17 or 18. No surprises there. How many mocks have used 18 as the destination? We've got a short list of players we would all love to plug into the 50th slot if that deal were made.

    Let's see how short or how long a trip the Cowboys could take...

    the more the "sources" say we will trade down the less Likely I see it happening. Jerruh is having one huge smoke screen.

    I think you are right.

    The more we hear about it, the more I am convinced we are not moving down, at least not significantly.

    This makes little to no sense.

    Why fake a trade down? What would Dallas possibly have to gain by making teams think they are trading down?

    Since our Special Teams suffered last year, I see us trading completely out of the 1st and 2nd round, loading up on draft picks in the latter rounds to shore up our Kicker position and Kick/Punt coverage teams...:rolleyes:

    Jerry is and always has been about misinformation. IF it's out there he wants to trade down, he doesn't.

    I'm involved in a parallel conversation on Twitter and neither party involved can explain to me the benefits of saying you do or do not want to trade down.

    There is nothing to be gained. There is no reason for a smoke screen. Jerry has traded down and up in the past after saying absolutely nothing and after saying everything.

    People read into things way too much this time of year.

    I'll go out on a limb and say Jerry will trade up or down, stay put or pass on the pick. :laugh2:

    Who can understand what Jerry ever says about anything? I feel like he is speaking a foreign language everytime I hear him talk about anything.
