While the Cowboys passed on defensive help in Round One, it appears defense will be a Dallas priority on the draft’s second day.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports the Cowboys “are looking to make a big move up” in Round Two. The Cowboys, Rapoport said, are targeting talent for the front seven of their defense.

The Cowboys have one pick in each of the next four rounds, including the 15th pick in the second round (No. 47 overall). They also have six seventh-round picks, three of which can be traded (Nos. 229, 231 and 238).

The Cowboys took Notre Dame offensive lineman Zach Martin with the No. 16 overall pick on Thursday night.
