According to Clarence Hill with the Dallas Star-Tribune, cornerbacks Stephon Gilmore and Dre Kirkpatrick "are all in the mix" when the Dallas Cowboys select at No. 14 during Thursday night's NFL draft. And yes. We're all well aware of the reports that should be believed at a 50/50 rate.

Assuming that Morris Claiborne is the first cornerback selected, likely in the top-five, and assuming that Stephon Gilmore is taken in the top-ten, which has been projected as a riser in recent weeks, if the Cowboys go with Kirkpatrick, it would likely end any speculation that the Cincinnati Bengals would address the cornerback position in the first round.

As a result it could bring defensive line into play (if it wasn't already) for one of the team's first-round selections, like LSU's Michael Brockers, who is also of interest with the Dallas Cowboys. Brockers recently visited with the Cincinnati Bengals as part of the predraft process.
