Dallas Cowboys Draft Picks 2012: Jason Garrett Set To Make Five More Picks On Saturday

So far, it's been all defense for the Dallas Cowboys in the 2012 NFL Draft. Jason Garrett and Jerry Jones have opted to use their first two picks on defense, moving up in the draft to select Morris Claiborne with the sixth overall pick in the draft, before selecting defensive end Tyrone Crawford in the third round with the No. 81 pick in the draft.

Claiborne's selection helps complete an overhaul in the secondary for the Cowboys, something that clearly needed to be done. Claiborne and free agent signee Brandon Carr will headline a revamped secondary -- and unsurprisingly, Rob Ryan is thrilled.

Garrett and Jones will have ample opportunity on Saturday to continue to replenish the roster, as the Cowboys hold picks No. 18 and 40 in the fourth round of the draft. Dallas also holds the No. 17 pick in the fifth round, No. 16 pick in the sixth round and No. 15 pick in the seventh round.

Here's a complete breakdown of Dallas' 2012 draft:

Round 1, Pick No. 6 (6): Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
Round 3, Pick No. 18 (81): Tyrone Crawford, DE, Boise State
Round 4, Pick No. 18 (113): Kyle Wilber, OLB, Wake Forest
Round 4, Pick No. 40 (135): Matt Johnston, SS, Eastern Washington
Round 5, Pick No. 17 (152): Danny Coale, WR, Virginia Tech
Round 6, Pick No. 16 (186): James Hanna, TE, Oklahoma
Round 7, Pick No. 15 (222): Caleb McSurdy, LB, Montana
