Cowboys pick Montana LB Caleb McSurdy

IRVING, Texas -- The final pick of the day for the Dallas Cowboys was a defensive player. Montana inside linebacker Caleb McSurdy was selected in the seventh round.

In all, the Cowboys used five of their seven picks on defensive players.

Dallas used the first four picks on defensive players, trading up eight spots in the first round to get the top cornerback in the draft in LSU's Morris Claiborne.

The Cowboys now have four inside linebackers on the roster: Sean Lee, Dan Connor, Bruce Carter and McSurdy.

It's the second time in the last three NFL drafts that the Cowboys selected a defensive player with the last pick of the draft. In 2010, the Cowboys drafted defensive end Sean Lissemore from William and Mary in the seventh round.
