Dallas Cowboys: Tracis Frederick
Randle led the Big 12 in rushing last season with 1,417 yards on 274 carries and had 14 touchdowns.
The Cowboys filled a need with Randle as a backup to DeMarco Murray.
Entering the draft, the Cowboys had Phillip Tanner and Lance Tanner as Murray’s backup and the club has not expressed a desire to retain free agent Felix Jones. Murray has missed nine games in his first two seasons because of injuries.
Randle has a similar build to Murray and the Cowboys were in the market for an every-down back than a niche back because of Murray’s durability issues. Randle did not miss a game at Oklahoma State, starting the final 26 games.
Like Travis Frederick, Terrance Williams, J.J. Wilcox and B.W. Webb, Randle was a pre-draft visitor to Valley Ranch.
