Player Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas
Team Dallas Cowboys
Pick Round 1, Selection 22 (22 Overall)
Stats Ht: 6-0   Wt: 207   40: -  
The Cowboys got the running back they wanted all along with Felix Jones. Jones provides an instant spark on special teams and will likely split time with Marion Barber much in the same way Julius Jones did last year. His home run ability also gives the Cowboys a much needed infusion of speed on offense. - Roy Philpott,
This pick wasn't a surprise as the coaches were looking for a back with better speed than Marion Barber. Jones could start right away with Barber handling the short-yardage and third down roles. Both backs together should form a really solid combination or power and speed.
