The Dallas Cowboys have selected inside linebacker Sean Lee from Penn State with the 55th pick in the draft, which they acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles.
Dallas gave up the 59th pick and the lower of their two
fourth-rounders, No. 125, to get Lee.
Despite bigger needs at safety and offensive line, the Cowboys
wanted to get younger at inside linebacker. Keith Brooking will be
35 this season and Bradie James is 29.
Dallas isn't scheduled to make another pick Friday night. The
Cowboys gave up their third-rounder in a deal Thursday night to get
first-rounder Dez Bryant.
