Cowboys 2022 Draft: Jerry Jones Claims “I Would Trade Up”

Probably the biggest theme to the Cowboys so far has been their lack of aggressiveness in . But could Dallas be saving its big moves for the upcoming Draft? comments earlier today may be a clue.

Speaking to the media during a regarding a new business venture, Jerry couldn't help but talk about football activities. With the 2022 Draft just two weeks away, Jones made a very specific statement regarding Dallas' positioning.

Just how far up would Dallas be willing to go? And what prospects might they be willing to sacrifice assets to acquire?

You never know who might fall. Every year there's a least a couple guys you thought were Top-10 picks who go well below the projection. If such a talent were to fall closer to the Cowboys' 24th-overall pick, Jerry is suggesting that his team may be willing to strike.

What about a guy like Georgia DT Davis, who'd fill a need position in Dallas and provide a likely upgrade over any of their current talent. Or what if they have their hearts set on a certain WR prospect like 's , or a premiere OL talent like Alabama's ?

Of course, any talk of the Cowboys trading up in a draft immediately make fans cringe with memories of in 2012. But as the saying goes, “scared money don't make money.”

One reason Dallas may be willing to sacrifice additional picks to move up is that they have several positions which are arguably set for 2022. When you look at the current talent at QB, RB, CB, S there doesn't feel like a need for a premium pick to be used. Even spots like TE, OT, and DE are reasonably well stocked, though upgrade opportunities certainly exist.

Multiple grains of salt should be taken with anything that comes out of Jerry's mouth, especially in the days leading up to a draft. But if his comment was genuine, the Cowboys may be more aggressive in the early rounds of the 2022 Draft than they've been during this first month of free agency.
