 The Cowboys have 6 Draft Picks in 2008
Cowboys 2021 Draft History
1 22 22  *Felix Jones RB Arkansas (Cowboys acquired pick and 2nd-round pick in 2007 draft from Browns for 1st-round pick in 2007 draft, April 28, 2007.)
 Draft Scout Says: Dallas had been forecasted by many to take Jones with this pick. Illinois' Rashard Mendenhall remaining on the board, however, created some discussion within the Dallas draft room. Jones is the better fit for Dallas' needs, however, considering his experience in a rotation system and kick return abilities.
Cowboys 2021 Draft History
1 25 25  Mike Jenkins CB South Florida (From Seahawks)
 Draft Scout Says: With Pacman Jones traded for, but not guaranteed to be re-instated, the Cowboys entered the draft looking to address a lack of depth at defensive back. With the versatile Jenkins, who has experience at both cornerback and free safety, Dallas has the option of using Jenkins at whatever position they feel he fits best. The Cowboys elected to trade up as San Diego was rumored to be high on Jenkins, as well.
Cowboys 2021 Draft History
2 30 61  *Martellus Bennett TE Texas A&M
 Draft Scout Says: In trading Anthony Fasano to Miami, the Cowboys suddenly found themselves with a hole at the position. Possessing the best combination of size, athleticism, and strength, Martellus Bennett has unique upside among this year's tight end class. Certainly Jason Witten has nothing to worry about as the starter, but in Bennett, the Cowboys have an exciting developmental talent.
Cowboys 2021 Draft History
4 23 122  Tashard Choice RB Georgia Tech
 Draft Scout Says: Rob - With Marion Barber not yet officially signed, the Cowboys provided themselves with insurance at running back early with the selection of speedy back Felix Jones. In adding a back with similar toughness and downhill running style in Choice, the Cowboys have reloaded at running back. Chad - Everyone's talked about Dallas needing a speed complement to Marion Barber. But the fact is Dallas has not re-signed Barber for 2009. Fourth round pick Tashard Choice may get a shot to show he could take over if Barber leaves. Injuries have hurt his stock a bit, however.
Cowboys 2021 Draft History
5 10 143  *Orlando Scandrick CB Boise State (From Jaguars through Bills who acquired pick from Bears for DT Darwin Walker, July 30, 2007. Jaguars acquired pick and 5th-round pick in 2008 draft from Bills for DT Marcus Stroud, March 1, 2008.)
Cowboys 2021 Draft History
6 1 167  Erik Walden OLB Middle Tennessee State (Cowboys acquired pick and 6th-round pick in 2009 draft from Dolphins for NT Jason Ferguson and 6th-round pick in 2008 draft, February 29, 2008.)
