The Dallas Cowboys liked Southern California quarterback Matt Barkley and Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib in this year’s draft but didn’t make a move to draft either one. Both went to Cowboys’ NFC East rivals in the fourth round Saturday. Philadelphia selected Barkley, and the Giants picked Nassib.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo just signed a six-year, $108 million contract extension and Dallas has one of the league’s top backups under contract in Kyle Orton.

“I’m an advocate of a third quarterback and you want to have a third guy coming, but you want to make sure you do it the right way,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “Those resources, you have to make sure you use them in the right way.

“We feel really good about the quarterbacks we have on our roster right now and what their roles are. If one of those top guys had fallen farther, we would have had another conversation about it. We felt like those guys were good players and maybe would have been good value, but not for us where we were picking.”
