The Dallas Cowboys selected Purdue defensive end Ryan Russell with their fifth round (No. 163 overall) selection on Saturday afternoon. Find out more about him below:
Height, Weight: 6-foot-4, 269 pounds
Rankings: CBSSports.com considered Russell the No. 29 defensive end on the board and the No. 325 overall player on the board.
The skinny: “Russell will frustrate NFL teams because he has many of the physical traits they covet, but he doesn’t do enough with them. With just 8.5 sacks over the last three years, his production won’t interest most teams, but his potential might.” — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com.
