The Trade Downs 

https://www.google.com/amp/s/cowboyswire.usatoday.com/2019/04/30/dallas-cowboys-2019-nfl-draft-pivotal-moves-trades-selections/amp/

The Cowboys had just drafted RB/WR Tony Pollard with the No. 128 pick and handshakes, hugs, fist pumps and high-fives were on full display from the Cowboy War Room Cam.

After three picks in the first four rounds, there was still another selection to look forward to, which was pick number at slot No. 136.  Then something happened.  The Cowboys traded down with the Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas received picks No. 149 and 213 in exchange.

As Stephen Jones confessed, there were some that got away.

“We lost some guys that we were right on the cusp of getting.  At the same time, we had a good board put together and felt good how we went about it. We traded back a few times, which I think usually happens when you lose a guy or two, not necessarily trying to make a quick pick. I felt good about doing that, and we ended up picking up a couple players.”

There are likely two players who likely fell into that category: Houston corner Isaiah Johnson and Charleston DE John Cominsky.

Johnson was not a pre-draft visitor but was a Kris Richard favorite and it would have been no surprise if he were chosen.  Richard worked out Johnson pre-draft and there is scuttlebutt he gave Johnson a heads up that Dallas would indeed draft him. The Cowboys instead chose a specialty player in Pollard and Johnson promptly went with the very next pick.

Cominsky on the other hand was an “Official 30” visitor.  He went to the Falcons at pick No. 135, right in front of the Cowboys’ noses one spot ahead of them.

Following the first trade back, the Cowboys were sitting at number 149 poised to make their selection, then another trade was announced.  This time, Dallas was trading down again, in this case with Mike Mayock and the Oakland Raiders, gaining selection No. 158 and No. 213.  The player picked at the 49ers spot right above them was yet another “Official 30” visitor in LB Dre Greenlaw.

At the end of the day, the Cowboys did appear to recover some of their losses, grabbing the lengthy cornerback they craved in Michael Jackson, Sr. in place of Johnson and the strongside DE in Joe Jackson for Cominsky.

These kind of scenarios are nothing new to the fickle machinations of the draft or really to the Cowboys themselves.  This kind of precedence was illustrated previously in the 2009 draft.

How is this proof Dimitroff 'snaked' the cowboys?  Since we took him at #135, and the cowboys had pick #149, then they traded it and dropped back even further to #158, then how is that 'snaking' the Cowboys?  Sounds like a clickbait title to prop up Dimitroff, and the Cowboys only screwed themselves (if they wanted Cominsky) by continuing to trade back.

Think you misread that. They had 148 because they traded out of 136 after the falcons took Cominsky with 135.

Dallas clearly has some leaks in that draft room. Every year it seems teams are jumping in front of them for players.

That might be true.  If so, I guess there is a price you have to pay when you publicize your team as much as the Cowboys do.

All the trades in front in the world won't make up for them trading up and taking Demarcus Lawrence ahead of us

That one really hurt, but Takk is going to be a good one and I have the same feeling with Cominsky.

You don’t know what you are talking about so maybe you should refrain.

Let me bring you into the light.  Falcons were at #137 and Cowboys were at #136 - Falcons jumped ahead of them and took the Cowboys  guy - Cominsky - then after that happened, Cowboys traded out of their spot.  This is a fact.

Feel free to shut your Yapper next time.

Nothing soothes a Falcons fan soul more than to know that another team actually coveted a player the fans considered a loser and a reach.

Let's finally win a super bowl so we can gain some self confidence. It was a fine job by the FO. The team needed specific pieces, not a rebuild. They got them and I'm sure they still have a move or two to make.

No where in the quoted article by the g-douch* did it say that Dallas specifically traded away #136 only after the falcons made their pick at #135.  If it was in the real article, then you conveniently left that out for dramatic effect.  Otherwise you are making a ton of assumptions g-douch*.

It was never stated in the quoted part by g-douch*.  Why click the link when the guy posts a ton of quotage?

The Cowboys don't say it exactly but this is what the writer is suggesting.

Or you could have just known that information like a lot of the rest of us. It's been bouncing around the forum since the draft.

@dawgsjw scored low on deductive reasoning.

You are clearly the one who just doesn’t get it.  If you refuse to put two & two together, that’s on you, not g-dawg.  Get a grip bro.  It’s unreal how arrogant some folks can be on this board.
