Though at one point this season it seemed inconceivable, the Dallas Cowboys are hoping their draft pick will be No. 32.
They'll have to win the NFC East on Sunday by beating the Washington Redskins to even have a chance at going all the way to a Super Bowl title and the last pick in the first round that comes with it; otherwise, fans' attentions will have to turn to April and the draft earlier than they'd like to.
The Cowboys' draft pick could still fluctuate pretty greatly. If the season ended today, Dallas would be on the outside looking in at the playoffs while also sitting with the No. 18 overall pick in the NFL draft. A loss Sunday would drop the Cowboys to 8-8 and potentially as high as No. 14 overall, but a win would put them as one of the 12 playoff teams picking between 20-32. Those picks will be determined by how a team finishes in the tounrnament.
In his latest mock draft, NFLdraftcountdown.com's Scott Wright has the Cowboys taking Texas Longhorns safety Kenny Vaccaro to help shore up a position that has been unsettled opposite Gerald Sensabaugh. Wright also mentions the Cowboys could look to upgrade their interior lines on both sides of the ball.
Obviously, though, Cowboys fans are hoping they don't even have to think about the draft for another few weeks. They'll find out Sunday.
