Watch Matt Mosley Of ESPN.com Talk Cowboys Draft

I got a chance to speak with Matt Mosley of ESPN.com after Cowboys GM/owner Jerry Jones met with the local media about the upcoming NFL Draft.

Mosley writes for “Hashmarks”, that is ESPN’s NFL blog.  It’s darn good.

We break down what Jerry said and what they might do, like going into the top ten. 

Here’s Why The Cowboys Won’t Get Roy Williams From The Lions

Jerry Jones would love to trade a first round pick to the Lions for wide receiver Roy Williams, but the Leos say no way.

Why?

Because last year’s 1st rounder Calvin Johnson has a screwed up back.  Read his horror here.  As told to Tom Kowalski of Booth Newspapers

“I was on meds the rest of the season. I was taking Vicodin twice a game just to get through the game,” Johnson said. “I stayed hurt the whole season, probably because I was trying to come back too soon. But I’m not going to be the kind of guy who’s going to say, ‘I can’t do this or this because I’m hurt.’ ”

Fans did not know how severely Johnson was hurt, and it took the coaching staff some time to realize it, too.
