The Dallas Cowboys have selected Wisconsin C Travis Frederick with the 31st overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft.

Pros: Like most Wisconsin linemen, brings a great overall understanding of offensive line play and a high football IQ. Big guy with interesting agility. Can block with power in man situations, but gets zone concepts.

Cons: Doesn't hit the second level with authority and lacks elite lateral agility. Will lose battles to speed rushers.

What he brings to the team: A great deal of confusion.

Was it the right pick? I don't know what to say here, except that it's too bad the Cowboys owner can't fire the general manager. With so many other pressing needs and talent at those positions still all over the boards, to take a third-round guy (not even the best center in this draft class!) is inexcusable.
