Here is the Dallas Cowboys 2017 draft class: 1. Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan; 2. Chidobe Awuzie, DB, Colorado; 3. Jourdan Lewis, CB, Michigan; 4. Ryan Switzer, WR, North Carolina; 6. Xavier Woods, S, Louisiana Tech; 6. Marquez White, CB, Florida State; 7. Joey Ivie, DT, Florida; 7. Noah Brown, WR, Ohio State; 7. Jordan Carrell, DT, Colorado.
The Cowboys final pick fell in line with what they had done with most of their first eight picks: a big-school defensive player. Colorado defensive linemen Jordan Carrell was the 248th selection, giving the Cowboys seven defensive players out of nine picks. He started 25 of his 26 games at Colorado and finished with 51 tackles and 5.5 sacks last season in earning honorable mention All-Pac 12 honors.
The Cowboys went back to offense with their second seventh-round pick in Ohio State wide receiver Noah Brown. He is big, physical but inexperienced after playing little in 2014 and missing the 2015 with a broken leg. He had four touchdowns against Oklahoma and finished the year with 32 catches for 402 yards and seven touchdowns.
For the sixth time in seven selections the Cowboys have gone with a defensive player, picking tackle Joey Ivie from Florida with the 228th pick. At 6-3, 300 pounds, Ivie has experience playing nose tackle and the under tackle spot. He started a career-high 10 games in 2016 and had 2.5 sacks ad 3.5 tackles for loss.
Marquez White's final pre-combine workout came at AT&T Stadium after spending his offseason working out in McKinney, Texas at Michael Johnson Performance.
