Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says that the team may look to trade their first-round pick in this year's draft.

Jerry Jones has said that the Dallas Cowboys would be open to trading their first-round pick in this year's draft.

The NFC East side will have the 18th selection on Thursday, but have made 59 draft-day trades since Jones bought the franchise in 1989.

The owner told ESPN Dallas: "I think we'll be open to improving to where we are.

"There's a lot of depth at certain positions in this draft and you could maybe get where you want to be at certain positions and gain some collateral there through a trade."

The Cowboys have traded up twice in the last three years, acquiring Dez Bryant and Morris Claiborne as a result.
