Jerry Jones sets up Cowboys' NFL draft 'war room' on $250 million mega-yacht

With the NFL draft taking place virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, coaches across the league had the opportunity to show off makeshift draft rooms in their respective homes — and several, like Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury’s, were extremely impressive.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones opted to lead his team through the first round of the draft not from his house, but from the water.

Jones and his family gathered on his massive $250 million yacht to select Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb with the No. 17 overall pick, marking perhaps the biggest flex of the night.

The 357-foot yacht, the Bravo Eugenia, reportedly cost Jones $100 million more than he purchased the Cowboys for in 1989. The vessel has a spa, sauna, steam room, massage room, plunge pool, a full gym and two helicopter pads. He sailed to Miami earlier this year on the boat for Super Bowl LIV, too.

Jones, who doubles as the team’s general manager, was reportedly going to be alone during the draft to follow social distancing guidelines — something that made Cowboys fans extremely nervous headed into the first round. He ended up having his family, including his son and director of player personnel Stephen Jones, by his side throughout the process.

Clearly, things worked out for Jones on Thursday night. And even though the virtual draft was an unusual one for everybody involved, the Jones family picked a comfortable spot to set up their “war room,” to say the least.
