Dallas Putting Finishing Touches on Draft Board

The 2014 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday night

With a little over 24 hours until the 2014 NFL Draft, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones says the team is getting close to completing their draft board.

We're still tweaking it,” Jones said, per ESPN Dallas. “I wouldn't say it's finalized but it's close.”

Jones also mentioned that the draft being pushed back two weeks, due to a scheduling conflict with Radio City Music Hall, helped the staff with their pre-draft preparations. Barring a trade, they’ll pick with the No. 16 overall pick in the first round on Thursday night, and likely target a defensive lineman or a safety.

"I think if you do your work and do it right, I hadn't seen people backing up on things," Jones said. "I think it just allows you do to a little more further study on guys and make sure you have him right and not overlooked something. I don't think the ‘study long, study wrong' is an issue here. I think it's been good for us and we certainly look at it as a way to be better than we've been in the past."
