2012 NFL Draft: Dallas Cowboys Have Five Saturday Picks

Despite trading up in the first round to draft Morris Claiborne, widely regarded as the top cornerback in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Cowboys are still in good shape on Saturday, as Jason Garrett and Jerry Jones will make five more picks.

Barring any trades, Dallas has a pair of fourth round picks to go along with a pick in each of the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds. So far, the Cowboys have focused solely on defense, drafting Claiborne in the first round before drafting Boise State defensive end Tyrone Crawford in the third round.

SB Nation Dallas' and Blogging the Boys' KD Drummond suggested that the Cowboys look for a developmental quarterback on Saturday, as well as an inside linebacker, safety, and interior offensive lineman. With a slew of picks on Saturday, the Cowboys should be able to address a few of these positions.

Here's a look at where the Cowboys will be picking on Saturday, barring a trade:

Round 4, Pick No. 18 (113)
Round 4, Pick No. 40 (135)
Round 5, Pick No. 17 (152)
Round 6, Pick No. 16 (186)
Round 7, Pick No. 15 (222)
