New York (KETK) — America's team's first round choice is a secret no more. Jerry Jones, owner and general manager of the team, selected Zack Martin with the 16th overall pick.
The offensive guard played college ball at the Univeristy of Notre Dame.
Barring a trade, Dallas will pick again at 47th overall in the next round.
Leading up to the draft, analysts speculated whether the Cowboys would trade up for much-hyped quarterback Johnny Manziel or play it safe. Many felt the franchise should take a defensive selection after they finished near the bottom of the league in team defense.
Dallas did not make the playoffs again last season, finishing 8-8 (5-1). They last made an appearance in the postseason back in 2009.
