The Dallas Cowboys made DeMarco Murray the No. 71 overall pick in the NFL Draft, selecting the Oklahoma running back midway through the third round.

The choice is intriguing by the Cowboys, considering they already have Marion Barber, Oklahoma native Felix Jones and Tashard Choice, who played at OU before transferring to Georgia Tech. But to spend such a high pick on a running back, the Cowboys must believe Murray is capable of beating at least one of those three backs.
