According to a report by Rob Rang on CBSSports.com, per the Dallas Morning News, the Dallas Cowboys are one of a few teams in the NFL who may be looking to trade up in this week's draft, and the motivation for this potential move might surprise you somewhat.
"Dallas is also exploring aggressive trade-up options," Rang writes. "Owner Jerry Jones loves Dez Bryant and will consider moving into the late teens should the Oklahoma State receiver fall to that point."
If this is true, it sounds that Jones is intent on avoiding a sort of Randy Moss Part II scenario. Jones famously passed on Moss in 1998, and the Marshall product never made him forget it, as a member of the Minnesota Vikings, the Oakland Raiders and finally, the New England Patriots.
Other teams looking to trade, according to the report, include the Seattle Seahawks, the Cleveland Browns, the Denver Broncos, the Miami Dolphins, the New England Patriots the Philadelphia Eagles and, owners of the first overall pick, the St. Louis Rams.
