If the Cowboys aren't comfortable with their position in the draft come draft day they may make a move to trade up in the draft to grab a player they really like.  Look to see if Earl Thomas the safety from Texas falls past Jacksonville at 10.  The 11th pick belongs to the Broncos. If the Broncos decide to pass up on Rolando McClain or Dez Bryant, they can make a trade with Dallas for the 27th pick, and maybe a 3rd or 4th, to get a guy like Maurkice Pouncey, another need for the Broncos.  Denver has a weak interior line, and this draft is pretty thin in that area, and relatively deep in linebackers and wide recievers.  Now with Dallas at 11, they can take Earl Thomas or Dez Bryant, two players with top 5 talent.  With the depth in this draft they can't go wrong with staying put.  But the drop off between guys like Thomas and Nate Allen seems to be pretty steep.  Thomas is defined as a ball hawk by draft experts.  The Cowboys had a great year on defense last year.  The one glaring weakness would be interceptions, they ranked 26th in the league.  Earl Thomas had 10 INTS and 5 FF in just two years.  I know Cowboys fans really want this guy (me included), and I think this would be the best option for getting him.
