In a very Jerry Jones like fashion, the Cowboys waited until the majority of the better running backs were selected to draft a very big need. We all know Demarco Murray has had his share of injuries, and the Cowboys struggled mightily in 2012 with an ineffective Felix Jones, Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tanner. Randle is fairly talented, although his poor combine and wiry build is cause for concern, but I have no doubts he can solidify himself as the number two behind Murray in 2013. Randle finally had the cast removed from his surgically repaired hand this week and has already displayed his talent in catching passes out of the backfield in OTAs. Randle is an obvious handcuff for the frequently injured Demarco Murray.
