Unless they're happy with our CBs we have to stay at 10 and pick the top one on their board. The Giants and the WFT both upgraded at WR in FA and the Eagles could easily take one of the top WRs in round 1 if they fell

Stay put at ten, I'd select in this order if Available, Sewell, Slater, Surtain, Pitts, Horn jr,.....and after that with the draft picks Dallas have available and with the offense pretty much set, I'd like to see the Cowboys be a little more aggressive and go after the player they covet that's in range to trade up to get

Stay put and pick the Highest Defensive player on the board. Who cares if you pick him 5 spots too early. Dallas needs defensive talent on every level.

Trading down is for teams without screaming needs and also good traders. Booger tried trading up for Lynch.

Stick at 10 and take the highest D player on the board and that might actually be the first D player off the board.

Something tells me there will be a trade between DAL and NE if a QB falls. At 15, Parsons, Horn and Surtain could be gone.

I’ve always thought, what if a team sacrificed 1 year’s 1st round pick for a cascade effect. Like what Philly did: trade down, pick up a 2022 1st.

now that first is the dolphins, so they’re hedging bets on who has a terrible 2021. If Philly does again, they have their own 1st to trade back with and pick up an additional 2023 first. If Miami is bad, they have that pick to trade down with too.

Depending on the teams you trade down with, you’ll have additionally opportunities to get top 10 picks from the following year (especially if it’s teams trading up to select a QB, implying they need one and won’t be good the following year).

Suddenly you’re giving yourself 2-3 first round picks every year by trading down that first year. Philly still drafts at 12, that’s not bad. But if we traded down again, to like 25, throw in a third or something.... maybe we pick up another.

Seems like it’d work, but nobody really seems to want to snowball picks like that. Possibly because most GMs are on “win now or else” mandates.

But Unless you need a QB, I’m always a fan of trading down and picking up more players overall. The draft, for as many ‘sure thing’ players people claim are in it every year, is a complete crapshoot. Bring in an army every year and hope 3-4 pan out long term.

We need a scenario.

I could be ok with doing all 3 of those things.


Like if they viewed Kyle Pitts as a game changer and wanted to move up a few spots for him then I’d be all for it.

Or if they didn’t like the value at 10 and wanted to move back then I’d be for it.

It’s too early for me to say. I would have to see how the draft unfolds.
I agree with what you’re saying. But the four quarterbacks go and I’m number 10. I really don’t care how it unfolds. Other than pitts I’m taking defense
