Cowboys gain two more picks

The Cowboys received two compensatory draft picks, the NFL announced Monday. Dallas earned a fifth-rounder (172nd overall) and a sixth-rounder (208th overall). That gives the Cowboys 11 total picks in the 2009 draft, which will be held April 25-26. A total of 32 compensatory picks were awarded to 16 teams. The New England Patriots, Cincinnati Bengals, Chicago Bears and New York Giants all received one extra third-round choice. Under terms of the league’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. _Charean Williams
