The Dallas Cowboys have been no stranger to draft-day trades, as owner and general manager Jerry Jones loves to maneuver up and down the draft board.
With 11 picks in 2014, the Cowboys are basically guaranteed to be on the move again this year. There’s no way they’re taking 11 rookies to training camp, so they’ll work to unload some of those selections.
