Cowboys sense QB mania could help them

The Cowboys are thinking about what could happen if there is a run on quarterbacks before they pick at No. 9 in the first round. The team sees it as a good thing.

"If all of a sudden, people said, ‘Hey, we’ve got to have a quarterback,’ and they started picking two, three quarterbacks like that, then obviously, that pushes down a good football player at another position to us," Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said. "That’s how it could affect us in a positive way."

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said a potential push for quarterbacks could keep the Cowboys on their toes for offers for the No. 9 pick.

"You could literally have some teams trying to get down to get some of those quarterbacks that are high, believe it or not, trying to get down to get some quarterbacks at a better value," he said. "But I agree with Stephen that if the right set of circumstances come along, it takes a pretty good player to move down there, it would be good value for us to consider dropping down there."

But the Cowboys will not be easily sold on a trade, Jerry said.

"It ought to be high-priced for us," he said. "In other words, we ought to ask for the world if we move down."
