The Cowboys have traded up from the No. 47 pick in the second round, tweets Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (on Twitter) has the details: Dallas sent their No. 47 and No. 78 picks to the Redskins for the No. 34 pick in the second round.
We heard earlier tonight that the Cowboys were working hard to jump ahead of the Falcons (No. 37) to land Boise State edge rusher Demarcus Lawrence. As long as the Texans go in a different direction – and it’s expected that they will – the Cowboys will have Lawrence all to themselves. Meanwhile, the Redskins have tacked on a third round choice in exchange for falling back 13 spots in the second round. It’s potentially good value for Washington, but they might be kicking themselves if Lawrence (or whoever the Cowboys select) turns out to be a star within their division.
