Cowboys pick Oklahoma TE James Hanna
The Cowboys came into the draft with Jason Witten and John Phillips as the only tight ends because Martellus Bennett signed a one-year deal with the New York Giants.
Picking up another tight end, either in free agency or the draft, is something the Cowboys wanted to do since.
Hanna, a Flower Mound native, is 6-3 and 252 pounds. As a senior, he started 13 games and finished with a career-high 27 catches with 381 yards with two touchdowns. He was named to the Big 12's second team.
In his junior season, Hanna picked up seven touchdown catches earning All-Big 12 honorable mention honors.
After picking four consecutive defensive players, the Cowboys grabbed a wide receiver in the fifth round in Virginia Tech's Danny Coale and now Hanna.
