The Cowboys licking their chops. HaHa vs Calvin Fansided

With all the talk about trading down the number two overall pick, there is a glaring absence of talk about a possible fight over two highly touted safeties. Most likely in the middle of the first round. Will we see the Cowboys make a move to get the player they want?

Let's not entirely forget about free agency, next year will be hectic - Sports Illustrated

A number of HUGE free agent signings/retentions will be at stake next year.

Chris Burke-

If you thought the start of NFL free agency was insane this year, just imagine the 2015 window opening with Richard Sherman, Jimmy Graham, Colin Kaepernick, Ndamukong Suh, Dez Bryant and other current or future All-Pros wandering onto the market.

The Rams need help at offensive guard, Xavier Su'a-Filo is a name that stands out from the rest...- Sports Illustrated

...for far more than the obvious. He is rightly considered the best OG in the draft, but will he be there when the Rams get on the clock? Rather obviously, he will be with the number two pick and almost certainly the thirteenth...but then what?
