Jenkins to the Cowboys after trade with Seahawks

With the 25th overall pick in the draft

The Dallas Cowboys select…

Mike Jenkins, Cornerback, South Florida

Jenkins is 5’10” 197 lbs. and ran a 4.40 40-yard dash.

Jenkins was a big reason South Florida had such a good season. Even though the Cowboys got Pacman Jones, there’s not telling whether or not he’ll be reinstated in time to play this season. Getting Jenkins is a perfect insurance policy. Their corner spot opposite Terrance Newman was a real problem last season and when Newman was injured they were in real trouble. Newman is one of the best in the league, but nobody is going to throw his way if there isn’t a decent corner opposite him. 

Details of trade…

Cowboys get No. 25 for the 28th overall pick, 5th and 7th round picks. Not a giving up a whole lot to get their man the Cowboys have worked this draft fairly well. Since the Seahawks are looking for TE, moving down was a good decision here.
