Cowboys Draft Rumors (News): Peterson Gone By #2?

It's funny how I disdain gossip in the real world, and crave it in the sports one. With the invention of social media, every rumor can hit every sportsfan, and every opinion is assigned some level of credence because it's been put 'in print'. It's a lot to sift through. Let's take a look at the latest rumors around Thursday's draft, and how they might affect the Cowboys haul.

-- CBS' Rob Rang reports that his source has Denver not as high on Marcel Dareus as they are on Patrick Peterson. To me, this would put the #2 pick in play if they actually do value Dareus, Peterson and Von Miller closely. Why wouldn't you pick up an extra pick in return for jumping Cincinnati for Gabbert?
