The NFL awarded the Cowboys three compensatory picks in the seventh round Monday, giving them 11 total picks in the 2014 NFL Draft.
The Cowboys were given picks 248, 251 and 254 in the May draft because of the losses in free agency last year of Victor Butler, Kenyon Coleman, Mike Jenkins and John Phillips. The Cowboys signed one player, linebacker Justin Durant, which is why they were awarded three picks.
The Cowboys now have six seventh-round picks to go along with picks in each of the first five rounds, including the 16th overall selection. They do not have a sixth-round pick.
Vice-president Stephen Jones joked that "we own the seventh round."
