What will the Cowboys do tomorrow in the draft?

When it comes to the draft the Dallas Cowboys tend to throw 7 different kinds of smoke. They tend to avoid visiting with who they like, i.e. (Morris Claibourne) and say they plan on doing one thing and do the opposite. When it comes to Jerry Jones the only one who I think really knows is Jerry, not Stephen, Jason or any of the other front office personnel. Jerry has helped this team grab some big time players over the years, examples include Dez Bryant, Emmitt Smith, Morris Claibourne etc. He has also been high on guys that have been big busts, namely Roy Williams, Pacman, and a few others. The draft believe it or not though is when Jerry is at his best, he's always willing to wheel and deal to get a player the team really wants. This year, in my oppinion should be no different, but might have to. Everyone pretty much knows what Dallas needs this year, a guard, and I for one completely agree. The two possibilities in the first round are Chance Warmack (Alabama), and Jonathan Cooper (North Carolina). I don't think there is any other way to go IF one of these two are available. It has been highly noted and projected that both will be gone by #18 and to some degree I can understand why. Both are strong and have the measurables for the position, both played exceptionally in college. But Jonathan Cooper is to me the more developed player and better suited for Dallas if indeed they are switching to a zone blocking scheme as has been reported. Jonathan Cooper is not going to make it to the 18th overall pick though and we all know it, so what will Garrett and the Jones' do? My guess, is unlike reported, they are infact looking more to move up than down. I know they can't really afford to do what they did last year, and losing a pick will hurt but there might be a reasonable option at #12. The Miami Dolphins have expressed their willing to move down in the draft, and it might be even more possible depending on whether their trade for Brandon Albert from the Chiefs goes through. If that is the case and it does happen, Dallas can possibly talk Miami into letting them have the 12th pick for (18, and 82), and yes that's a tight squeeze but with many teams looking to move back and collect extra picks I think it would be viable. I don't like giving a pick away, but in the end I ask myself would you be happy with Dallas if they select BPA and don't address their biggest need? I know D.J. Flucker is an option at 18, I just don't think he will make near the impact that a guard would. The pressure on Tony Romo last year came from the middle, and I just don't think Dallas has their starting two guards on the roster. In the end I can speculate all I want we will all find out tomorrow what Dallas truly wants.
