Cowboys take San Diego State TE in 2nd round
    
IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have taken tight end Gavin Escobar of San Diego State in the second round of the NFL draft.
    
The Cowboys took Escobar with the 47th overall pick Friday night.
    
Jason Witten is entering his 11th season with the Cowboys and is the only pass-catcher in franchise history with more than 800 receptions. He's third on the career NFL list with 806 catches for 8,948 yards.
    
The 6-foot-5, 254-pound Escobar had 122 catches for 1,646 yards in three seasons with the Aztecs.
    
Witten's backup is James Hanna, a sixth-round pick last year.

Cowboys Take Baylor's Williams in 3rd Round

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have taken Baylor receiver Terrance Williams with the first of two picks in third round of the NFL draft.
    
The Cowboys took the former Dallas high school player with the 74th overall choice on Friday night. They got the pick from San Francisco when they traded down in the first round on the draft's opening night.
    
Williams was a first-team AP All-America last season after catching 97 passes for 1,832 yards and 12 touchdowns. When Robert Griffin III was throwing to him in 2011, he had 59 catches for 957 yards and 11 scores.

Cowboys take S Wilcox in 3rd round

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have taken safety J.J. Wilcox of Georgia Southern with their second of two picks in the third round of the NFL draft.
    
The Cowboys took the prospect from the Football Championship Subdivision, a tier below the top level of college football, with the 80th overall selection Friday night.
    
Wilcox moved to safety full-time from receiver for his senior season and finished second on the team with 88 tackles. He had two interceptions. He also returned kickoffs.
    
The 5-foot-11, 214-pound Wilcox had 45 catches for 898 yards and four touchdowns in three seasons as a receiver.
    
Dallas has a need at safety after dumping Gerald Sensabaugh in a salary cap move.
