    suppose the cowboys trade their 18th pick for a pick somewhere in the mid 20s... for example with chicago at #27. would the cowboys ask to know the player chicago is targeting? do teams as a rule ask which player a trading team is planning to select?

    There's no guarantee. But when Dallas traded back 2 spots with KC for Roy Williams, Jerry Jones had to make certain KC wasn't interested in Roy. Since Minny had the next spot after Dallas, we had to be fairly certain Minny had someone else on their radar.

    But look what happened to Holmgren when he wound up getting Jeremy Stevens at TE in 2002 (or was it 2001). He had another TE targetted, and kept trading back ... all the way to #31. Then NE jumped in front of him, and snagged the TE he wanted. Holmgren then had to settle for Stevens.

    Trading back has it's risks. If a solid player is available during our spot, we take him. No jumping around, no hokie pokie dances ... just take the solid picks and don't be greedy.

    Losing a solid player for a lesser one, just to obtain an additional low round draft pick isn't worth it.
