Cowboys fill another defensive hole with safety Kavon Frazier

The Dallas Cowboys have free agents to be in safeties Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox, so taking one made perfect sense. The Cowboys selected Central Michigan's Kavon Frazier with the 212th pick.

My take: The Cowboys closed the defensive needs by taking Frazier. In the second round they took a linebacker (Jaylon Smith). In the third they took a defensive tackle (Maliek Collins). In the fourth they took a defensive end (Charles Tapper). To start the sixth round, they took a cornerback (Anthony Brown).

Frazier started 13 games in 2015 and finished with a team-high 108 tackles. He had 4.5 tackles for loss and one interception. He finished his career with five interceptions, including three in 2013.

He is more of a downhill safety than a center field safety and has been compared to Church. His immediately contribution could come on special teams. His college coach was John Bonamego, who was a long-time NFL special teams assistant coach.
