And for the first time since 2004, the Cowboys don't have a pick in the first round of the draft. (See Cowboys full draft history here.)
With the 51st overall pick being the Cowboys' first pick in 2009, will Jerry Jones be patient enough to wait until perhaps 10:30 PM (ET)?
"We're going to put him in a straitjacket," executive vice president Stephen Jones joked.
"You're right," [Jerry Jones] said. "Put me in a straitjacket."
As the Dallas Morning News points out, the Cowboys, who made five draft-day trades last year, have made a total of 51 draft-day trades in the past 20 drafts.
In addition to their second-round pick, the Cowboys have 10 picks from the third round on.

The Cowboys bye week is week 6.
The most challenging part of the schedule will be the final five games in December and January. Of course, that's been the most challenging part of the Cowboys schedule yearly regardless of who they play.

Both suffered toe injuries that affected the end of their seasons.
Jones is "running and cutting normally." Barber is back to his challenging workouts that have induced vomiting for Vikings WR Sidney Rice, who is working out with Barber.
Coach Wade Phillips plans on using a three-headed running attack in 2009 with Barber, Jones and Tashard Choice, who played well while Barber was limited and Jones was on IR.
