Reports earlier in the offseason had the Dallas Cowboys being more likely to move up in the first round than down, but with the first two spots (and thus, in all likelihood, the top two quarterbacks in the draft) having been traded, it once again seems that—if they’re looking to trade at all—trading down and collecting picks would be the move for the Cowboys.
But owner Jerry Jones told Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News this week that the team will “most likely” stay put at No. 4 overall.
Assuming Carson Wentz and Jared Goff are gone on the first and second picks, some likely names for the Cowboys are Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey, Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott, Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa and Oregon defensive end DeForest Buckner.
The first round of the 2016 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday in Chicago.
