Oklahoma State running back Joseph Randle, just like receiver Dez Bryant and kicker Dan Bailey, will not have to change team nicknames in his pro career. Randle was picked in the fifth round of the NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday. Dallas had been active in evaluating running backs in the draft with the idea that they would take one somewhere in the third to fifth rounds of the draft.

The three backs most often mentioned in connection with Dallas and that all came into Valley Ranch and the Cowboys complex to work out for Dallas coaches were Le'Veon Bell of Michigan State, Kniles Davis of Arkansas, and Randle of Oklahoma State.

The answer was going to be which back was available when the Cowboys decided to pull the trigger with the running back pick. Randle was there and became the answer.

At Oklahoma State, Randle was a two-time All-Big 12 running back who was first-team all-conference last season and led the Big 12 in rushing with 1,457 yards and 14 touchdowns.

In his career Randle finshed with 3,168 yards and 43 touchdowns. Three of those touchdowns came on receptions, as Randle caught 108 passes for 917 yards during his three-year college playing career, and that should really enhance his value to Dallas.
