The Dallas Cowboys are looking to trade for the first pick in the second round, the No. 32 pick held by the Cleveland Browns, and could have their eye on a pass rusher according to a tweet from NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.
There are still a number of fine pass-rushers on the board, namely Oklahoma State’s Emmanuel Ogbah and Clemson’s Kevin Dodd, both of whom combined for 39 total sacks across their respective collegiate careers. Dallas shored up its offense in taking Ohio State’s Ezekiel Elliott with the fourth overall pick, and now it’s time to take care of a defense that ranked 17th in the NFL in total defense in 2015 and 25th in sacks, registering just 31 as a team.
But that all depends on if the Browns are willing to deal. They already traded the No. 8 pick for the No. 15 last night, ultimately picking Baylor wideout Corey Coleman, so GM Sashi Brown is clearly listening to any and all offers. Dallas currently owns the No. 34 pick and could probably find a pass-rusher there too, but Jerry Jones may have his eye on someone he wants picked ASAP.
