NBA draft departures shake up Way-Too-Early Top 25

The deadline for early entrants to declare for the NBA draft has passed, so it's time to re-evaluate the early top 25 for 2018-19. With so many players testing the waters yet not signing with an agent, it's more art than science.

The Cowboys have picked up the fifth-year option on defensive back Byron Jones. The move was actually made last Friday. Jones is moving to cornerback in 2018 after spending the last two seasons at safety. The option is worth $6.2 million and is guaranteed only for injury. Since the new collective bargaining agreement, the only first-round pick to not have the option picked up was Morris Claiborne (2012).

Dealing with an arthritic knee condition, tight end James Hanna felt it was time to think about his long-term health in his decision to retire. “The dream was to play for the Cowboys,” Hanna said. “I don't know how many people actually do what they say they're going to do as like a 13 year old, but I consider myself to be extremely lucky in that sense. Also the college I went to (Oklahoma), I feel like I met my goals. It would've been nice to have more stats and obviously I could've done more things, but I'm proud of what I accomplished.”

The Cowboys will place James Hanna on the reserve/retired list as the tight end could not get over a serious knee condition that troubled him for most of the last two seasons, according to sources. Hanna was not involved in the early part of the team's offseason program.
