A trade with New England should come as no surprise as they have a plethora of high draft picks in this years draft. The Patriots have the 17th pick, the 28th pick, the 33rd pick and the 60th pick in their arsenal if they want to move up.

Bryan Broaddus speculates that this could be the deal that's being worked on:

Reports of DAL-NE swap. Math might work this way: DAL>9 to NE <17, 60(2),125(4) coming back. DAL might try to flop 5's as well to make work

Underwhelming from a Cowboys perspective. Also, targeting Jordan with the ninth pick is a little perplexing from the Patriots' view. Jordan should be a nice player at the NFL level but he should be available for the taking at the 17th pick.

The Cowboys could very well trade their pick tonight, I just don't know if this deal makes sense for either of the two teams.

UPDATE: Adam Schefter believes this trade will not happen.

Any proposed Cowboys-Patriots trade will not happen. Yet there are any number of teams interested in moving back, including Dallas.
