IRVING, Texas (AP) - Joseph Randle had to wait 151 picks to hear his name during the NFL draft.
The former Oklahoma State running back has almost no chance to start for the Dallas Cowboys because of DeMarco Murray, the Oklahoma Sooner in front of him on the depth chart.
So maybe he regrets bypassing his final college season to trade one set of Cowboys for another. Or maybe not.
Randle says he isn't sure he could be in a better situation, so ``maybe the wait was worth it.''
The fifth-round pick says that because the Cowboys are believers in the NFL as a two-back league. That's partly because Murray has missed nine games with injuries since becoming the starter midseason in 2011.
