Jerry Jones: Cowboys 'have no intention at all' of trading Orlando Scandrick

NFL Trade Rumors Dallas Cowboys Stephen Jones

Even though the Cowboys did add an edge rusher with their first pick of this draft, there is still a lot of work to be done.

Dallas took defensive end Taco Charlton of MI in the first round at 28 overall on Thursday night.

Sure, the Cowboys drafted CT safety Byron Jones in the first round in 2015 and Boise State defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence in the second round in 2014. Thankfully. But I don't expect the Dallas Cowboys to play the cards they've been given. Chat Sports is LIVE at the 2017 NFL Draft in Philadelphia, follow along with each pick from Commissioner Roger Goodell with our live coverage on Facebook Live, and analysis and video on each prospect below.

Scandrick has been a member of the Cowboys since he was selected in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Boise State.

"He has the arm length that we are trying to get at the right defensive end", Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "That's a good environment for a young player to grow".

"It goes to how the draft set up", Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said.

The question entering Thursday's first round was if they would focus on the secondary, which saw three of their four 2016 starters leave in free agency, or on the defensive line with Tyrone Crawford and DeMarcus Lawrence both coming off offseason surgery.

Indeed, there is a three-round strategy in play here, which we'll get to in a moment. Benson Mayowa led the Cowboys with just six a year ago.

Yes, yes. But is he a "war daddy"?

The Texans traded away the 25th overall pick in this year's draft as well as their first-round selection next season to nab Watson. Last year, he was named the co-MVP of the Buffs (along with quarterback Sefo Liufau), earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors from the Associated Press and second-team honors from coaches. He has one career sack and will miss the 2017 season because of a suspension.

But the Charlton pick was definitely in keeping with that big school philosophy. While that's not always a "sexy" draft approach, it's one that makes your skill players look a lot sexier by keeping them healthy and well-blocked for.

"I felt like I was a top-10, top-15 player", Charlton said on a conference call.
