Pick Player Pos Ht Wt College Round 1, Pick 22 (22) (From Browns) Felix Jones RB 6'0" 200 Arkansas Pick Analysis:With Julius Jones leaving as a free agent, Felix Jones should fit right in as a great complement to Marion Barber. He's a faster, breakaway-type of player, while Barber is more of a power back. Jones rushed for 2,956 yards and 20 touchdowns on 386 carries at Arkansas while sharing carries with Darren McFadden.
Round 1, Pick 25 (25) (From Seahawks) Mike Jenkins CB 6'0" 200 South Florida Pick Analysis:Looking for a cornerback, the Cowboys traded up to take Jenkins. Although he had just six interceptions in 48 games, Jenkins has good coverage skills. He's also a good tackler with great speed. You can't take Pacman Jones into consideration here and Jenkins is a value pick.
Round 2, Pick 30 (61) Martellus Bennett TE 6'6" 259 Texas A&M Pick Analysis:Bennett has the size to be an effective blocker. However, his speed and technique are issues that could pose problems as he attempts to make an impact in the passing game.
Round 4, Pick 23 (122) (From Browns) Tashard ChoiceRB 5'11" 215 Georgia Tech Pick Analysis:Choice was a little bigger than originally believed. He plays the game with intensity and will run with power like Lamont Jordan. He was better as a junior than a senior, but still ran for 1,356 yards. Considering the Cowboys took Felix Jones in the first round, Dallas likely viewed Choice as the best player available at this point. Round 5, Pick 8 (143) (From Bears through Bills and Jaguars) Orlando Scandrick CB 5'10" 192 Boise State Pick Analysis:Scandrick was a three-year starter at Boise State but has major character concerns. His off-the-field issues hurt his draft stock and he will need to get those issues squared away once he gets to the NFL. Round 6, Pick 1 (167) (From Dolphins) Erik Walden DE 6'2" 238 Middle Tennessee State Pick Analysis:Walden only had two sacks as a senior, but still produced 22.5 during his time at Middle Tennessee State. He has the frame to be a rush linebacker in Miami's 3-4 scheme.
