Multiple Cowboys find a new home on NFL rosters after Draft weekend
A couple of former Cowboys finally learned their landing spots in the NFL this weekend.
The biggest name to go was running back Joseph Randle, who was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys at No. 151 overall in the fifth round of the NFL Draft.
Randle had the best bet to have his name called at the draft out of the Oklahoma State seniors, as he was the only one consistently showing up in projections leading up to the event.
He now goes to Dallas to backup former OU running back DeMarco Murray, and is expected to get hefty carries now that Murray's durability has been called into question recently.
Once the draft ended though, a number of the other Pokes were picked up by various teams. Kicker/punter Quinn Sharp, who was half-expected to be called in the late-rounds of the draft, was quickly signed by the Cincinnati Bengals, while Lane Taylor was picked up by the Green Bay Packers.
As the evening carried on, centerEvan Epstein and defensive lineman Nigel Nicholas were also called, signed to the Miami Dolphins and the Tennessee Titans. 2011 leading tackler Alex Elkins was quickly picked up by the Detroit Lions, while Jonathan Rush joined the Oakland Raiders.
Names that still have yet to be added to an NFL roster, at least that we know of, are former cornerback Brodrick Brown and defensive lineman Cooper Bassett, who also tried out for the tight end position at OSU's pro day.
Another notable was former tackle Michael Bowie, who left the team last season and transferred to Northeastern State after breaking team rules, was picked up by the Seattle Seahawks in the 7th round.
