The Dallas Cowboys are normally one of the most active teams come draft time, but this year will be different according to Jerry Jones.
“This looks like a real good year for us to stay put,” said Jones, when asked about potentially trading in the first round.

If Jones is being truthful, Cowboys fans should feel good about it. Dallas comes into the season with Super Bowl aspirations, with the only real concern being the secondary. They can address that with the picks they currently hold. Players such as UConn safety Obi Melinfonwu and Washington corner Kevin King will likely be available when the Cowboys come up at the 28th pick.
Indeed, Stephen Jones indicated as much Monday afternoon.

There’s no such thing as a sure thing when it comes to the Dallas Cowboys and the NFL Draft. However, there is no reason for them to trade up or down this year. Thankfully for fans, ownership seems to know and acknowledge it.
