The Dallas Cowboys had a need at cornerback, so they selected Byron Jones. Does this mean the Cowboys truly have lost their faith in former first round corner Maurice Claiborne? If Clairborne can reach his expectations, the Cowboys could have a strong tandem for years to come.
Regardless of Claiborne’s future, Jones can come in and make an immediate impact for the Cowboys – either as a starter or as a nickel corner. We knew the Cowboys were going to be addressing the defensive side of the ball, and this selection did just that.
Solid pick for Dallas.
