Of course it effects the draft. That's precisely why they signed a veteran safety. It certainly doesn't mean they won't draft a safety. I definitely think they will. It simply means they now don't have to reach for one early at the expense of a better player at another position because they have another veteran that can play in certain packages and start if need be. I'd call that effecting the draft.
He's probably nothing more than an insurance policy who can be rented for a year. We now have 4 safeties to start camp.
This also points to a reality that most likely we won't be taking a safety in the first 3 rounds. We have to focus on CB and DE and
maybe a falling DT from Michigan somewhere in the first 100 picks.
How can anyone feel that Dallas is adding depth at the safety position when they don't have starting talented safeties at the position?
Jones is decent but the other safety is an unknown.
This move is just an added player to the roster/position.
Carroll is the only one that is getting decent money. Moore is a min guy with a small bonus, Blanton should be also (He was with the Bills last season with $80K SB)So this signing says we won't be taking a safety, what about the signing of Moore and Carroll.
Does that mean we aren't taking a safety, CB, or DE? All are cheap vets, they are absolutely no sign of what we will do in the draft.

I was just following up with what you said. The one effect it has over the draft is that they don't feel they have to reach for a position.Just saying none of them change our draft plans at all.
We could still draft a CB, DE, or safety....none of them are important enough to make a difference.....with Carroll, we actually lost two CBs, not one.
None make a difference in the draft
