    With the 14th pick, the Cowboys select...
    One of the interesting things about NFL teams losing their minds over Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill's recent pro day is that it means the Dallas Cowboys have a better shot at landing an elite player. Of course, owner Jerry Jones is still capable of undermining the entire process if he takes a last-minute call from one of his cronies and big-foots his hard-working scouting department.

    But even Jerry could have a hard time screwing up the No. 14 overall pick in this draft, what with all those Alabama players likely available at that point. Head coach Jason Garrett, the master of meritocracy, made a trip to Tuscaloosa for the Crimson Tide's pro day, the only such event he's scheduled to attend in the buildup to the draft. Garrett's only pro day visit last year was to USC to see offensive tackle Tyron Smith in person.

    As some of you might recall, FoxSportsSouthwest.com was the first site to predict the Cowboys would select Smith with the ninth overall pick. Yes, I bailed on the pick at the last minute, but let's not dwell on that in this column. This is the point in the pre-draft process where I give you three "locks" for the Cowboys' selection at No. 14. One of these three players will almost certainly be drafted by the Cowboys based on numerous conversations with sources across the league.

    Strange how Mosley keeps claiming this when other websites (CNNSI, for one) had us taking Tyron Smith several months before Mosley did.

    Ok, I'm getting a little tired of this. It's not like EVERY pick we've made in the first round the past few has been for Jerry's "ego". This schtick is getting old.

    Not that I want him or think he'll be the pick, but what off field baggage?
