Dallas Cowboys reportedly had Devin Street projected as third round NFL Draft pick

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Devin Street was taken on Saturday by the Dallas Cowboys in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. The Cowboys, apparently, think they've landed a bargain.

Per CBS Sports' Dane Brugler, the team thought highly of the former Pitt wideout:

By most accounts, Street was seen as a 4th-6th round kind of guy, so him landing in the fifth wasn't that unexpected. That said, the Cowboys placed a little more value on him than most and that makes it easy to see why they moved up in the round to take him.

It's also the perfect example of how teams can bide their time and wait on certain guys. Even though they valued him higher, they realized that not many other teams likely did. A little similar to what the Texans did earlier with Pitt quarterback Tom Savage, the Cowboys were able to get other players while finding what they deemed to be a bargain a little later.

Street also recently spoke about his selection earlier today. More on him still to come and you can also read about him on our NFL Draft page.
