IRVING (AP) The Dallas Cowboys have selected Oklahoma running back Demarco Murray with the 71st selection in the 3rd round.
The choice of Murray likely spells the end of veteran running back Marion Barber’s time in Dallas.
Murray will join former Razorback Felix Jones in the Cowboys back field, running behind newly acquired first round tackle Tyson Smith of Southern Cal.
Dallas also selected linebacker Bruce Carter from North Carolina with the 40th overall pick. The speedy 6-foot-2 240 pound rookie is expected to compete for the starting job at inside linebacker.
