2021 NFL mock draft: What might happen in first round if Cowboys, Broncos trade up? : Quarterbacks are the focal point of the NFL draft, but a tight end could become the talk of the first round if the Cowboys trade up for Kyle Pitts.

The late, great Tom Petty summed it up pretty well 40 years ago this month when we first heard him sing, 'The waiting is the hardest part.' Kind of encapsulates where we are in the NFL's pre-draft season with the main event still 10 days away. But before that happens, Trey Lance will throw again for scouts, some medical evaluations will continue to await resolution – all as the 32 teams finalize their boards – and the annual, late-stage smokescreens will begin to billow. One recent rumor that's gained traction stems from an ESPN report claiming that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is 'infatuated' with uber-talented Florida tight end Kyle Pitts. Is that true? Is it counterintelligence? Is it legit even if Jones doesn't plan a bold move up from No. 10? Hard to know.
