Sounds like Dallas might have a little trick up their sleeve.
The Cowboys currently hold the No. 19 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, and with all the holes they have on both offense and defense, the team is going to be looking to get a special player with that selection.
However, it sounds like the team isn't content with just sitting at No. 19. During his press conference today, owner Jerry Jones said the team would be willing to move up if they see the right opportunity flash their way.
Jerry Jones: "If we get a really outstanding opportunity to do something really special for our team I would be giving that a lot of consideration." Mentioned when they moved up to get Dez Bryant in 2010— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) April 24, 2018
Given all the defensive talent in this draft, it's very possible the Cowboys eye a player like Roquan Smith or Minkah Fitzpatrick, and pull off a deal to move up if one of those players falls back a bit.
If there's one thing that is for sure, it's that Jones knows that the Cowboys will not be finding Dez Bryant's replacement in this draft.

Look out folks, Jones has some moves left to make.
