Dallas Cowboys Draft Travis Frederick 31st Overall

1.31 Dallas Cowboys Travis Frederick, C, Wisconsin, (6-4, 312)

The Dallas Cowboys drafted Travis Frederick, a center out of Wisconsin with the 31st overall selection in the 2013 NFL draft. He is a very bulky interior lineman who can mix it up at both guard and center, has good feet, great hands, is solid at helping out the rushing attack and holds his own on the line without getting muscled too easily. Also recovers well, meaning that if he is beat on a play he can work  himself back in, once again becoming involved.

While he does have a ton of positives, some weaknesses that could hinder his professional game include his enormous size could become a negative as far as his quickness at the next level. He also has a tough time in pass protection keeping up with quicker defenders. All-in-all, he has great technique and should excel in the Cowboys system which is heavy in leadership. Overall, a solid selection in the first round.
