Cowboys Select DE Ryan Russell In Fifth Round

The Cowboys continue to assault the defense, bringing in another player to compete to be a part of the famed defensive line rotation of Rod Marinelli.

For the fourth time in five selections, the Dallas Cowboys have gone defense, selecting defensive end Ryan Russell out of Purdue. Russell was recruited to Purdue as a 4-3 defensive end, but a coaching staff change has had him miscast since his impressive first year on campus. He will be returning to the left defensive end position with Dallas.
