In the 6th Round of the 2010 NFL Draft the Cowboys picked up a much-needed offensive tackle a second cornerback.
First, with the 10th pick in the 6th (179 overall), Dallas picked up Notre Dame OT Sam Young, who stands 6 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 316 pounds, was a blue chip prospect out of Florida that started his freshman year for the Irish. The NFL analysis on young said he can play left or right, but is more suited to a right tackle.
With their second pick in the 6th round (196 overall), the Cowboys picked up CB Jamar Wall out of Texas Tech. At 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 210 pounds, Wall is a good mixture of strength and size for a perimeter defender. He runs well, put doesn't have pure speed and is susceptible to misses while appearing stiff during directional changes, the NFL said.
The Cowboys only have one pick left in the draft, and that will come with the 27th pick in the 7th Round (234 overall).
