Dallas Cowboys 2013 Draft: Cowboys Select Travis Frederick At Pick 31

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

With the 31st pick, the Dallas Cowboys select...

And the pick is in. The newest Dallas Cowboy will be Travis Frederick, Wisconsin.

After moving back from the 18th spot in a trade with San Francisco that resulted in the forfeiting of 80 Trade Value Chart points, the Cowboys plucked a player that several people felt was the best center available.

Many thought that Dallas would address the interior of their offensive line with their first pick, but the early first round saw all of the top offensive linemen go. By most accounts, Travis Frederick was slated to be a second round pick.

Frederick was one of the 30 players that the Cowboys brought in to Valley Ranch as an authorized National Visitor. The team played last season with UDFA Phil Costa and 7th rounder Ryan Cook manning the center position. Mackenzy Bernadeau also took a few snaps there as well in 2012. Of course, there remains the possibility that Dallas moves him back to the guard position, which is where he played as a junior.

Frederick was the 9th offensive lineman selected in the first round.

Other draft options included Jonathan Cyrpien, S, Florida International and Kawann Short, DT Purdue. The Cowboys will return to the clock tomorrow evening with pick #47... unless there's a trade.
