VALLEY RANCH - With two days remaining until the NFL Draft, anticipation is running high. That means information from teams is running low. But what else would you expect in what has become one of the most celebrated poker games in sports?
Cowboys Owner and GM Jerry Jones was on hand at Valley Ranch Tuesday to give Cowboys fans about as little information as possible about the team's draft plans.
The Cowboys are scheduled to pick 27th in the first round but might try to move up to snag a top flight running back to replace DeMarco Murray.
But Jerry was warning everybody to hold their horses in assuming that, "We don't have that as a must to come out of here with a running back."
Okay, so maybe they could use the first pick to find another playmaker on the defensive line while they wait for Greg Hardy. You know, the new guy who's currently scheduled to miss the first 10 weeks of the season.
Again Jerry says not too fast, "We could draft an offensive lineman with that first pick. And that's not meant to make a point here, we could."
Jerry refused to tip his hand, so we had a press conference about nothing.
Let's just hope whatever the Boys decide to do with their picks this year, it amounts to something, like a sixth Lombardi Trophy.
