As the 2022 NFL Draft gets closer and closer, it appears as if the Dallas Cowboys are very interested in improving their position in the first round.
With the 2022 NFL Draft almost upon us, it appears as if the Dallas Cowboys are looking into possibly making a splash and moving up a bit in the first round. At the moment, the Cowboys currently hold the 24th overall pick.
That’s not bad, but having the 24th choice probably isn’t as much fun as being able to pick sooner. So, it’s not a huge surprise that Jerry Jones’ team is apparently interested in trading up.
According to a report by Mike Fisher over at Sports Illustrated, the folks in Dallas are “desperate” to trade up and get a better pick in the first round of this year’s NFL Draft. According to Fisher’s report, sources have apparently indicated to Sports Illustrated that the Cowboys would like to have a draft pick that sits somewhere around the “top 14 or so.”

Fisher also notes that while the Cowboys are apparently interested in making something like this happen, that doesn’t mean they necessarily will.
The Cowboys do have a few needs that they could potentially address in this draft.
Finding a talented, young, and relatively affordable wide receiver is probably something many Cowboys fans are hoping their team will be able to pull off. Getting the opportunity to go out and select a receiver in the first 10 to 15 picks could potentially put Dallas in a position to get a talented receiver.
Or maybe they’d have a shot to get an offensive lineman. Or another potential star. Who knows what Dallas would do?
The Cowboys shouldn’t be reckless though. It may not be a bad idea for Dallas to trade up, assuming they can do so reasonably. It wouldn’t necessarily be a great idea for the Cowboys to give up too much in hopes of a rookie player panning out.
