    Speaking of Peterson, we posted on Tuesday he ranks atop the draft board of the Dallas Cowboys, which should come as no surprise to anyone as we reported from the Senior Bowl in late January he was the teams number one target. In Indianapolis came word that certain factions of the Cowboys front office feel the franchise should rid themselves of former number one pick Terence Newman, who’ll be 31-years old this season and is a player whose skills have diminished. So what happens if Dallas cannot trade up and acquire Peterson? The general consensus is the team will look at players on either the offensive or defensive line when they are on the board with pick number nine. We have speculated the choice could be Cameron Jordan, assuming the Cal senior is still available and were previously told it could be another PAC Ten player, Tyron Smith of USC.

    Some league insiders said not so fast. Dallas showed no interest at the combine in the veteran offensive linemen that will be available for free agency once the free agency period starts, assuming it does. And yes- there were talks between teams and agents in Indianapolis about veteran players that will eventually be on the open market. One scenario had Dallas potentially trading out of the ninth pick, moving down in the first round then taking an offensive lineman later in the frame. Granted, most of this was spoken about over the weekend before Prince Amukamara turned in his very solid workout Tuesday morning.
