Jerry Jones says he has already received two offers to trade down at No. 9

Owner Jerry Jones said the Cowboys still are putting together their board and have not decided what they are going to do with the ninth overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft. But Jones acknowledges that he already has options. He said he has received interest from two teams who want to move up in the draft. Again the Cowboys are still in the evaluation mode. But they do have options, Jones said. Most pundits have them selecting Nebraska cornerback Prince Amakamura with the ninth pick. Clarence Hill


I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

There was always an interesting schedule of panel discussions (with Q&A) on a wide-ranging set of topics which spanned the entire globe. Having no insider clout, I was never a participant, I was merely an attendee. That was OK with me.

hey nice post, their is something to learn from this article. best one from my article list.

Jerry SHOULD get the best offer and trade down. In the worst scenario we would get a mid-round pick in the 1st PLUS a 2nd rounder and likely an additional 4th or 5th rounder too. But with many teams needing a QB and the Skins picking at #10 we could even get a 1st, 2nd and 3rd rounders for our #9 pick. Hence, selecting at say #17, it would make sense to pick some OT like Carimi at that spot, plus, we could even conceive to pakc up our own #40 plus the additional 2nd rounder received as compensation to trade back into the 1st round, somewhere around #18 and have another pick (JJ Watt is the guy I like). And still having two 3rd rounders...

blech. if we had a real GM this might make some sense. however, we are stuck with Jerreh. the only result of him trading down is we'll get 3x the number of losers picked. if he keeps the 9 pick there's at least a chance we'll get a good player only because it's such a high pick.

for a bad GM, picking lower in rounds is much harder as you have to find the value/diamonds in rough there, and Jerreh sucks too much to do that!
