Jerry Jones will surely make his presence known at the NFL Combine this week as he prepares to assemble his list of preferred players to select for the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL draft. Jones will talk to many of the 300-plus players who will show their talents at the Combine. Also, he'll watch players along side scouts and other executives.
Jones will likely watch a good number of drills to get some sort of picture of the players' abilities. Watching the players at the combine will give him a bit of insight into how they might perform under pressure if drafted by the Cowboys.
However, he'll gather more accurate information on players' capabilities from Cowboys personnel at the pro day workouts.
The more important aspect of the combine for Jones will be the opportunity to interview players. Jones will have his chance to get to know prospective draftees little bit. He'll be able to talk to them to get some idea of the types of personalities he might be bringing to the Cowboys organization.
Based on that, he might gather what type of relationship he would have to establish with the players if drafted by the Cowboys.
Some players he'll be more invested in interviewing than others. Players who Jones may be most interested in drafting for the Cowboys would likely receive the most in-depth interviews. Those he'd like to grab in the first round would be most likely to field detailed or interesting questions.
The following are the five players Jones will be best served in taking his time in interviewing to a greater extent than others. Also included in the following slides are questions Jones and other Cowboys personnel may ask these players.
