My story: How in the world did the Cowboys end up selecting CB Morris Claiborne?

It was one of the shockers of the first night of the NFL Draft. The Cowboys pulled off a stunning trade to select LSU CB Morris Claiborne, who was supposed to be gone in the Top 5. Instead, the Cowboys grabbed him at 6.

And it surprised everyone. The Cowboys. Claiborne. The player’s family. Everyone.

How did it come down? What went on behind the scenes? Figured I’d tell you, and take a long time to do it.
