Frederick was continuation of the Cowboys upgrading the trenches and focusing on the fundamentals

The selection of Wisconsin center Travis Frederick was not  a“wow factor” pick for the Cowboys.

But it was a continuation of coach Jason Garrett’s mission to emphasize the fundamentals and win the right way.

Doing that, according to Garrett, is improving the trenches on both sides of the ball. The  Cowboys have now taken on offensive lineman in the first round in two of the last three years. They took tackle Tyron Smith with the ninth overall pick in 2011.

 “Teams win in 2013 like they won long time ago,” Garrett said. “You win up front. We had to get better up front. The best teams in this league have good offensive and defensive lines. Very few teams in this league win if you are not strong on the offensive and defensive line. We had to turn this thing over. We have been in the process over the last three years to turn the offensive line over. You have to do it the right way. Tyron Smith is a cornerstone player for us. We feel Frederick can be one of those players you build a team around. ”
