Cowboys add pass-catching TE Gavin Escobar with their second pick, adding to stable of pass-catching TEs

The Cowboys added a pass-catching tight end with their second pick in the NFL draft.

Gavin Escobar, a 6-foot-6, 254-pound tight end from San Diego State, went to the Cowboys with the 47th pick.

He joins a tight end picture in Dallas that already includes veteran Jason Witten, who last year set the NFL record for catches in a season by a tight end, and second-year tight end James Hanna, who came on as a pass catcher at the end of last year.

Escobar has his own pass-catching credentials. He finished his career with the Aztecs with 122 catches for 1,646 yards and 17 touchdowns.

His 51 catches and 780 yards as a sophomore ranked as the second-best season by a tight end at San Diego State.

The 22-year-old was born in New York City and moved to California as a child, playing at Santa Margarita Catholic High School in Orange County.
