Cowboys 2012 Draft: League Source - Dre Kirkpatrick To Visit Cowboys Pre-Draft

Cowboys still interested?

Even though the Cowboys have appeared to solve their immediate need in the secondary by signing former Kansas City cornerback Brandon Carr to a huge free-agent contract, they are still going to kick the tires on potential first-round corners. According to league sources, the Cowboys are among ten teams that have lined up a visit from Alabama cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick.

The Bills, Cowboys, Jaguars, Vikings, Buccaneers, Ravens, Lions and Titans are listed as eight of the teams that will meet with Kirkpatrick.

Kirkpatrick was one of the most-associated names with the Cowboys prior to the opening of free agency. With the inevitable release of Terence Newman coming, many mock draft analysts had Kirkpatrick penciled in as a definite possibility for the Cowboys. Now that Dallas has signed Carr, the need at the position is not as pressing. Still, with Mike Jenkins only one year away from free agency, the Cowboys could be interested if they feel Kirkpatrick is the BPA when pick #14 rolls around. At least for the moment, if these league sources are correct, Kirkpatrick and the Cowboys will explore the possibility.
