Cowboys looking to take a “big dip” in the repechage, could trade


The Dallas Cowboys have a 17th overall pick in the next NFL draft, but it may not be good enough for owner Jerry Jones.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is known to be excited about the draft time.
The Cowboys have several players slated to become free agents next month, and they may have to replace some of these talents in the draft. A source close to the team told Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network that Jones "wanted to make a splash" on the draft day, which could mean that Dallas is going to explore mounting the board of directors.

According to Pauline, the Cowboys have done a lot of screening work on the Ohio State outlook. Buckeyes' biggest hope is obviously defensive end Chase Young, but he should reach second in the Washington Redskins. It would take a huge hit to go from # 17 to # 2, which seems unlikely for the Cowboys.

However, they could target Ohio cornerback Jeffrey Okudah, who is considered the best defenseman in the draft. Landing it would certainly be considered a "big blow" for Dallas.

We all know that Jones is excited about the draft time. Sometimes Cowboy leaders must even keep him from getting carried away, which was supposed to be the case when Jones was stunned by Johnny Manziel's writing potential.

While it should come as no surprise if the Cowboys progress through the draft, the biggest splashes they could make are with their impending free agents. Quarterback Dak Prescott is still looking for a long-term team deal, and wide Amari Cooper could end up with another team if Dallas doesn't want to shell out a lot of money.
