FRISCO (KFDX/KJTL) — The Dallas Cowboys selected Alabama DB Trevon Diggs with the 51st overall pick in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Diggs was a full-time starter at the University of Alabama, with three interceptions and 11 pass deflections.

Diggs immediately fills a position of need, with CB Byron Jones leaving the team in free agency.
