The Cowboys added some depth at nose tackle today after selecting former Illinois defensive lineman Joshua Price-Brent. in the seventh-round of the NFL Supplemental Draft. With the selection of Price-Brent, Dallas forfeits their seventh-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Price-Brent — 6-foot-2, 321-pounds — entered the supplemental draft after he was ruled ineligible for his senior season at Illinois. He will compete for the back-up nose tackle spot with Junior Siavii. Sean Lissemore , who was selected in the seventh-round of the 2010 NFL Draft, could also compete for the position, but he was used primarily at defensive end during minicamps.
Price-Brent had 29 tackles, seven tackles for losses, three sacks and three forced fumbles last season.
