Player Martellus Bennett, TE, Texas A&M
Team Dallas Cowboys
Pick Round 2, Selection 30 (61 Overall)
Stats Ht: 6-6   Wt: 250   40: 4.75  
The Cowboys had a sudden need at tight end after trading backup Anthony Fasano the night before the draft. They filled that need in the second round by selecting a player with first round talent in Texas A&M's Martellus Bennett. While he does have some growing up to do, he does have a tremendous upside and can immediately become a physical presence in the Cowboys' offense. - Roy Philpott, Ranch Report
The tall and athletic tight end is also a willing blocker. He'll be a very solid backup for Jason Witten.
