Cowboys Round 7 pick: Aaron Casey, LB, Indiana

The Cowboys will have a long wait following their final pick in Round 3 thanks to a handful of trades. Their picks from Round 4-6 were all traded as they added Brandin Cooks, Stephon Gilmore, and Trey Lance. That means they have to hope they hit on the early selections before taking a couple of fliers on their final picks in Round 7.

With their first of two selections in the last round, Dallas brings in Aaron Casey from Indiana. A 6-foot-2, 228-pound linebacker, Casey wound up spending six years in the NCAA. That could hurt his stock since he's going to be an older rookie but he still had over 100 tackles for the Hoosiers.

The Cowboys have been dealing with injuries at the position and Casey has been very durable. Perhaps he's able to carve out a role in this defense but if not, he has the makings of a special team's ace.

Cowboys Round 7 pick: LaDarius Henderson, OT, Michigan

After starting his career at guard for the Arizona State Sun Devils, LaDarius Henderson transferred to Michigan to prove he could play left tackle. He has NFL size at 6-foot-4 and 310 pounds and will be valuable due to his versatility.

Dallas has a strong offensive line but they need depth. One player after another seems to go down with injuries and having someone who can play guard or tackle will be a huge plus for them.
