The Dallas Cowboys appear to be all-in on the 2019 NFL season leading some to believe they will consider trading up a little in the 2019 NFL Draft

The Dallas Cowboys have had one hell of an offseason. Criticized early for sitting on their hands as all the premier free agent’s fell off the board, Dallas made up ground fast, signing a pair proven defensive linemen (Christian Covington and Kerry Hyder), a veteran safety (George Iloka), and a former Pro Bowl slot receiver (Randall Cobb) all for pennies.

They didn’t stop there. They re-signed DeMarcus Lawrence (a top-5 NFL defensive lineman) and traded for the highly competent Robert Quinn (only forfeiting a 2020 sixth round pick), significantly upgrading their pass-rush this coming season.

With so many needs handled, upgrades made, and insurance policies in place, one player could very possibly be all they need to take it to the next level in the postseason.

Having traded their first round pick to the Raiders for Amari Cooper, Dallas is without a pick on Day 1. Without dipping into next year’s inventory, it will be impossible for them to move into the top-32. But moving up to the top of the second round isn’t beyond the realm of possibility.
