Mailbag: Worried About CB Depth In The Draft? Looking To Deal On The DL?

With Sidney Jones and Fabian Moreau sustaining serious injuries in their Pro Days, do the Cowboys now have to make drafting a CB in Round 1 even more of a priority? As there may not be a quality CB in Round 2.

Bryan: There will be a quality cornerback in Round 2 - I would not panic. 

David:All the experts keep saying that this cornerback class is unusually deep. Even if you take Jones and Moreau out of the equation, you're still looking at a lengthy list of guys who could be there in the first and second rounds – Marlon Humphrey, Tre'Davious White, Cordrea Tankersley, Chidobe Awuzie, Teez Tabor, Gareon Conley. The list goes on and on.

If the situation presented itself, do you think the Cowboys would look to trade DeMarcus Lawrence? He is in the final year of his contract and has not lived up to the performance of the No. 34 pick. At least they can get something in return.

Bryan: Play it out. If they lose him for big money after next season they're likely to get a better compensatory pick than one you get in a trade. 

David:As is usually the case with trades, I think you'd be disappointed by what you'd get. Lawrence has been decent-to-good for most of his career, and he underwent back surgery for the second-straight offseason this year. That's not going to command much of an asking price. I'd rather have a talented, veteran defensive end than the fourth or fifth-round pick someone would trade you for him.
