Staubach says Cowboys deserve more credit than they got for picking Travis Frederick

Roger Staubach said the Cowboys deserve more credit than they received for picking center Travis Frederick in the first round.

“Being a quarterback, you know how important a center is,” Staubach said Thursday night at the Cowboys’ “Silver and Blue Debut,” the public practice at AT&T Stadium. “For a lot of different reasons -- being strong up front, getting you the ball, knowing that you have to make a block, so you don’t have to worry about the snap. Just having a leader there in the middle, it’s a big deal.”

Staubach said Romo described Frederick to him in high terms.

“He says Frederick is as good as we expected,” Staubach said. “He said really nice things about the guy. I don’t know him. But having a center is more important than people give the Cowboys credit for when they picked.”
