IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys are sending signals that they might trade down in the draft Thursday night.
If so, they would do well to remember their disastrous ``specials team'' draft of 2009, the last time Dallas focused on stockpiling picks.
Not one player remains from the class with the ill-fated label from owner Jerry Jones, who didn't have a first-round pick and focused on depth believing the Cowboys had the pieces to contend even though they were coming off a 9-7 season.
Dallas sits at No. 18 this year, possibly too low for an immediate upgrade needed for the offensive line.
In the previous four drafts, Jones has moved up twice and down once.
