The Cowboys have completed their draft class with the signing of defensive tackle Maliek Collins.

Collins, a third-round pick out of Nebraska, suffered a broken foot during organized team activity (OTA) practices in the spring, dealing another blow to the Cowboys’ depleted defense.

The initial diagnosis was that Collins could miss 10-12 weeks and all or nearly all of training camp due to the foot injury, but Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said during the spring he expected Collins back for camp.

The Cowboys selected Collins at No. 67 overall in April.
