Cowboys take their safety with second pick of third round, getting Georgia Southern's J.J. Wilcox

The Cowboys filled one of the positions they prioritized for this draft, taking Georgia Southern safety J.J. Wilcox with their second pick in the third round Friday night.

Wilcox, 6-0 and 215, will join a safety group that looked like one of the most vulnerable on the roster, manned only by a fourth-year undrafted free agent, Barry Church; a second-year player who didn’t play as a rookie, Matt Johnson; and a veteran free agent signee, Will Allen.

Wilcox was actually a receiver his first three seasons at Georgia Southern. He both carried the ball and caught it, but moved last year to the defensive secondary and had two interceptions.
