NFL Draft: Cowboys Trade 18th Pick


The Cowboys came into this draft looking to get one of multiple offensive linemen or safety Kenny Vaccaro in the first round but everyone was gone when the 18th pick rolled around.  The Cowboys and 49ers have agreed to a deal that will trade first round picks and also send a 3Rd(74th pick) round pick to the Cowboys.  They will be on the clock at 31 now.  The 49ers drafted LSU safety Eric Reid with that 18th pick something the Cowboys could have done and addressed their safety issues but they surely believed Reid was a stretch at 18.   Jerry Jones and company have said in the past few days that they don’t mind trading down and they did exactly that.  We will keep you updated with any new developments.
