Cowboys pick LB Bruce Carter from UNC in 2nd round

The Dallas Cowboys have taken linebacker
Bruce Carter from North Carolina with the 40th overall pick.
The second-round pick Friday was the first defensive player
taken by the Cowboys for new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.
The 6-foot-2, 233-pound Carter was an outside linebacker at
North Carolina, but likely will play inside linebacker for the
Cowboys. Carter is coming off a torn left ACL late in the 2010
With the ninth overall pick Thursday night, the Cowboys selected
offensive tackle Tyron Smith from Southern Cal. It was the first
time under Jerry Jones' ownership that Dallas used a first-round
pick on an offensive lineman.
