Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo believes that the team were right to select centre Travis Frederick in the first round of this year's draft.

Tony Romo has heaped praise on new Dallas Cowboys centre Travis Frederick.

The NFC East side selected the 22-year-old with their first-round pick in this year's draft, despite many pundits forecasting that Frederick would be a second-to-third-round choice.

The quarterback told the Cowboys' website: "Travis has done a great job. They picked a good one there. He's going to be a guy who's going to help us a lot for a long time.

"I don't know whether people are talking about whether or not we reached for him and stuff like that I guess at the time, but he's good football player and we got a good first-round draft pick there.

"He's still growing as a player, he's still got a lot of things to learn in the NFL, but he's a smart kid. He's got a good anchor, he's strong, he's tough, so I think he's got a real bright future."

Frederick has also been practicing as a guard during the Cowboys' training camp.
