IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have taken center Travis Frederick of Wisconsin with the 31st pick in the NFL draft after trading down 13 spots in a deal with San Francisco.
    
The Cowboys moved down Thursday night after several targets went off the board.
    
Offensive guards Jonathan Cooper of North Carolina and Chance Warmack of Alabama were taken in the top 10 and Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro went 15th to New Orleans - three ahead of Dallas' original slot.
    
Dallas got an extra third-round pick in the deal with the 49ers, the 74th overall. The Cowboys have six picks for the remaining six rounds.
    
The 6-foot-3, 312-pound Frederick started 31 of 32 career games at Wisconsin - 13 at guard and 18 at center.

Texans Take Clemson Receiver Hopkins

HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Texans selected Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins with the 27th overall pick in the NFL draft.
    
Receiver was the biggest need for the Texans who have long lacked a top-tier receiver to play opposite star Andre Johnson, who turns 32 this summer.
    
It's just the second time Houston has drafted a receiver in the first round and the first time since Johnson was chosen third overall in 2003.
    
Last year, they drafted receivers DeVier Posey in the third round and Keshawn Martin in the fourth round. Posey contributed on offense, but tore his Achilles tendon in their playoff loss and is likely to miss a lot of time this season, and Martin worked mostly on special teams.
    
Veteran Kevin Walter was cut after the season.
