With the 11th pick of the sixth round, 176th overall, the Dallas Cowboys selected wide receiver/kick returner Dwayne Harris of East Carolina.
ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper calls Harris "arguably the best pick the Cowboys have made in the last couple days. He can help you in so many ways. You can put him in the slot. He's a nightmare matchup." He did have some costly drops, Kiper noted.
Kiper likes Harris' versatility and being a veteran of the college wars. "He'll be a great pick for the Dallas Cowboys."
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said of Harris that "we like what he does for our football team," citing his intangible traits and the type of player the Cowboys want.
Garrett's yardstick for what all the first six picks do: "the measurables, the right kind of guys and good football players."
