IRVING, Texas The Dallas Cowboys hosted their first three draft picks at the team's Valley Ranch practice facility on Saturday.
Offensive lineman Travis Frederick's beard was probably the most interesting topic. The Cowboys' first-round draft pick is currently sporting a beard that goes down to almost his chest.
When Jerry Jones introduced Frederick, tight end Gavin Escobar and wide receiver Terrance Williams to the media, the Cowboys owner and general manager mentioned that Frederick will be trimming his facial hair in the near future.
"It's definitely out of control and this will be a good time to start fresh," Frederick said.
According to the 6-4, 312-pounder, he's been growing it for about 10 months.
"At Wisconsin it's kind of a thing you do when you play on the Wisconsin offensive line," Frederick said. "It shows a little bit of who we are as a group. I was going to cut it off at the end of the season, then I chose not to. ...

With the 31st pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys take (drum roll)…Travis Frederick, Wisconsin.
Huh? 31st pick? Who?
Jerry Jones warned his Dallas Cowboys fan base. If he moved in any direction in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft, it would be backwards.
He was as good as his word as he traded the 18th pick in the 2013 NFL draft to a much better team than...
The Dallas Cowboys made some surprise picks in this years draft for sure. Everyone thought Defense was the going to rule the board but it was the opposite for the Dallas Cowboys. I am a Cowboy fan and the 31st pick gave them flexibility they didn’t have last year and as I have discussed before also gets them younger at skilled positions. What a great choice to have Whitten help...

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told the Dallas Morning News that fullback Lawrence Vickers underwent back surgery this past Friday.
Jones said the surgery will limit Vickers this off-season, however.
“He is going to be fine,” Jones said. “It is not a concern.”
Vickers, who turns 30 on May 8, is under contract for $1.2 million in 2013. Jones was asked if he should pay...
Jerry strikes again. I’m not thrilled with this pick, but at least they didn’t take a running back. God I hate myself for saying that. This pick is going to rub a lot of people the wrong way. We have Jason Witten, although he’s getting older. We’ve also got James Hanna. Hanna actually showed me [...]The post NFL Draft: Dallas Cowboys Select Tight End Gavin Escobar appeared...
The Cowboys draft B.W. Webb, CB, William & Mary with the #114 of the 4th round. Depth was a need and adding Webb gives us another guy to fill in the departed Mike Jenkins.
One of the most controversial selections in the 2013 NFL draft was the Dallas Cowboys drafting center Travis Frederick at 31. Jerry Jones is already being compared to the NFL’s new Al Davis, but I understand the pick. Every fan or analyst that says they could have drafted Frederick in the latter rounds might be right, but they might also be wrong. After Eric Fisher, Luke Joeckel...

The Cowboys draft LB DeVonte Holloman, South Carolina #185 in the 6th round. This is the last pick for the Cowboys, they do not have a 7th round pick this year.
The Cowboys took a beating with the Travis Frederick pick, but after thinking about it and with some reasoning the tone has calmed a bit; however, today’s pick in the 2nd round with TE Gavin Escobar had fans boiling over with anger on several levels. Let’s look closer at the guys we drafted today and what their roles will be in the 2013 season.
TE Gavin Escobar, San Diego State...
2013 NFL Draft Round 2 Pick 74
From 2008 to 2011, Williams had 105 receptions for 1,502 yards with 15 touchdowns. Williams was also a Biletnikoff Award finalist for 2011. In 2012, he led the nation with 1,832 receiving yards.
He is big and fast and will be a great compliment to Dez Bryant.

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- The Dallas Cowboys have taken South Carolina linebacker DeVonte Holloman in the sixth round of the NFL draft.

IRVING, Texas The Dallas Cowboys needed to upgrade their offensive line during the offseason and the first step in that direction came Thursday when they spent their first-round draft pick on Wisconsin center Travis Frederick.
An offensive linemen isn't a flashy pick but Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones says Frederick can make a bigger impact than some might think...
