Cowboys Fill Another Big Need in Round 3

So the Cowboys didn't do anything crazy today.  They had the #81 pick and they sat around for a round and a half and picked at #81.  And with that pick they took Tyrone Crawford, a defensive end out of Boise State.  Crawford is 6'4" and weighs in at 275 lbs.  That is a little small for a 3-4 end so I have to believe the Cowboys are thinking he can add some weight to his frame.

He had 6.5 sacks last year as a starter and 7 sacks the year before playing a reserve role.  So he can get pressure on the quarterback.  My concern with his size will be how well he can hold up against the run.  Time will tell.

So far it has been a defensive draft.  I still expect the Cowboys to pick up an offensive lineman or two and maybe even take a flier on a safety in the later rounds.  It wouldn't hurt to take a speed receiver either.  The Cowboys still have 5 picks to go.  They'll be busy tomorrow.
