Dez Harrison was the first receiver taken in the NFL draft in 2006.
Now he’ll have another home in the Super Bowl.
The Dallas Cowboys selected Harrison, the No. 5 overall pick, in the third round of the 2006 NFL draft.
They also took running back Matt Millen in the second round.
After that, the Cowboys were all-in on running backs.
They took fullback Ricky Williams in the first round, but his contract expired after the 2010 season.
They went with Harrison in the fourth round.
The Cowboys went back and forth between running backs and tight ends for a couple of years before they drafted Vernon Davis in the fifth round.
After his second season, the team traded up for him in 2011.
The first Cowboys game in the new stadium was in the preseason opener against the New York Jets.
The Cowboys took a 2-2 tie.
The Jets won that game, 33-24, and the next year, Harrison became the first Cowboys running back to record a touchdown in the season opener.
That was the end of the road for Harrison.
He played in one more game with the Cowboys before being released.
The second Cowboys game was in Week 11, when the Cowboys faced the New England Patriots.
Harrison was suspended the next week for his role in the Patriots’ bounty scandal.
Harrison didn’t play for the Cowboys again in the regular season.
