What the Cowboys can expect in the draft: Fifth round


IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys have seven picks in the upcoming NFL draft with selections in Rounds 1-5 and two picks in the seventh round.

Let's take a look at the past five years at each draft position in which the Cowboys will be selecting to offer up some perspective on the type of player they will be getting.

After looking at their first four picks, let's look at No. 163, the Cowboys' fifth-rounder.

2014 -- Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia (Kansas City Chiefs): He is the SEC's all-time leader in yards and touchdown passes and saw his draft stock take a dip because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He did not appear in a game last season behind Alex Smith and Chase Daniel.

2013 -- Jordan Mills, OT, La. Tech (Chicago Bears): He has started all 29 games in which he has been active, playing right tackle as a rookie and moving to guard because of injuries elsewhere last season. He suffered a broken foot as a rookie.

2012 -- Terrell Manning, LB, NC State (Green Bay Packers): He declared himself the best linebacker in the draft after the Packers chose him. He is on his seventh franchise in the New York Giants and has three tackles to his credit.

2011 -- Daniel Kilgore, OL, Appalachian State (San Francisco 49ers): He moved into the starting lineup last season after serving as a backup his first three seasons. A broken leg ended his 2014 season after seven games.

2010 -- Reshad Jones, S, Georgia (Miami Dolphins): He has been a solid starter for the past three years with 6.5 sacks and 10 interceptions to his credit for the Dolphins. He missed four games last season for violating the NFL's steroid policy.
