“I think Tony Romo is a great leader for our football team. And he’s been a guy who’s always been committed to what we’re doing. That’s something you always what as coaches. You want your quarterback to be involved. We feel like he’s done that and he’ll continue to do that going forward.”
While many critics felt Travis Frederick was taken too high in the draft, Garrett explained why the Cowboys took the Wisconsin product and why at pick 31.
“We took one of the linemen that we thought was the best center in the draft,” Garrett elaborated. “And we had a high second round grade on him. What we’ve always tried to do in the draft is be disciplined with who we think is the best available player at the time. And we certainly want to address needs as you do that. I think we were able to do that over the course of the next six picks. We took the players we liked.”
