    The problem with the trade down option is, if there are alot of teams looking to trade down then its going to lessen the amount a team will have to offer to trade up.

    Good luck getting a 2nd to drop down to 21 or 22 if teams all around our pick are looking to move down also

    This was my feeling going into the question that I originally asked. Right now, I don't get who the prized possession is going to be at 14 and don't think there is tremendous value available in a trade down scenario.

    Right now....take DeCastro or Cox at 14.

    The thing is, with a set threshhold for salaries in effect this season, trades will be more abundant as they are now freindlier.

    Also, with a set point on a Cox or DeCastro going into the draft, someone coming up for a trade, will be having to present a 'sweet' deal already, to have a realistic chance for that deal. Motivation and paramaters for that deal will already be somewhat established in favor of the Cowboys. This is still in the quality range for picks in the draft.
