Nebraska offensive lineman and all-hair team candidate Matt Farniok is going to be a Cowboy! The versatile lineman has experience at right tackle, guard and even filled in at center a couple times last season when Cam Jurgens went to the sideline.

When looking for seventh round picks, a lineman like Farniok who can play all over the line is a high-upside, low risk pick. His versatility increases the likelihood that he can stick on the roster. While he played at tackle most of the time at Nebraska, he is likely to be an interior guy in the NFL. It never hurts for a guy like that have tackle experience when coaches are making choices on who they need to keep.
