The Dallas Cowboys have taken safety J.J. Wilcox of Georgia Southern with their second of two picks in the third round of the NFL draft.

 
The Cowboys took the prospect from the Football Championship Subdivision, a tier below the top level of college football, with the 80th overall selection Friday night.
 
Wilcox moved to safety full-time from receiver for his senior season and finished second on the team with 88 tackles. He had two interceptions. He also returned kickoffs.
 
The 5-foot-11, 214-pound Wilcox had 45 catches for 898 yards and four touchdowns in three seasons as a receiver.
 
Dallas has a need at safety after dumping Gerald Sensabaugh in a salary cap move.
