    Although the NFL draft is still almost three months away and the NFL scouting combine isn’t for another month, several team executives said Monday and Tuesday that preliminary trade talk is already being bandied about at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.

    In particular, there are several teams interested in moving back in the draft in hopes of obtaining extra picks in the second and third rounds. The reason is that because 102 underclassmen have entered the draft, this year’s draft is expected to be one of the deepest in many years.

    “You’re going to see a lot of players who would normally be second-round picks end up in the third round. Same goes for the mid- to late-first round picks ending up in the second round,” one team executive said.
    While this draft is expected to have a number of top-end stars available in the top 10, includ-ing defensive end Jadeveon Clowney of South Carolina and quarterbacks Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater and Johnny Manziel, some teams may opt for depth in this draft.

    Now I am scared...Jones could take this as an opportunity to "fool other owners" and move up to get "his guy" (whomever that might be)...be afraid, be very afraid.....he SHOULD have the thought process of being one of the trade-down teams, but will he?

    Put it to you this way. The Rams (Redskins) pick at 2 is up for sale and you know JFB as a Cowboy is a Jerry marketing dream. Cleveland is said to ready to pay whatever it takes to get him though and they have alot more to offer to move.

    I assume you mean Manziel? (you said JFB)....and yeah, THAT is exactly what frightens me, a decision based on marketing alone and not a football decision...to move from 16/17 all the way to #2 would cost WAY too much...first rounders this year and next and probably 2nd rounders for a guy that sits behind Romo...ugh......

    (edit) duh, you meant johnny football...another reason I can't stand him...a nickname and he hasn't played a down in the nfl (not that the name is his fault)

    Well i hope dallas draft a qb this year there will be a few prospects available in the 3rd and 4th rounds. We can still grab us 2 DL in the top rounds. Possibly pay for Jaryus Bryd ???
