IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys addressed their biggest need with a bold move up in the second round to draft a defensive lineman they coveted.

They probably aren’t finished trying to bolster the league’s worst defense, and they’ll turn to quantity on the final day of the draft.

The Cowboys have eight picks Saturday, including six in the final round. The extra picks are coming from trades and compensation for free agents who signed elsewhere.

Dallas moved up 13 spots in a trade with Washington on Friday to get Boise State defensive end Demarcus Lawrence with the second pick of the second round, No. 34 overall. They drafted Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin in the first round.
