Just like we did last year, today we're putting up our own Pre-Draft Visit Tracker here on BTB. Rabblerouser and I have both previously commented on how some of the prospects invited to Dallas are garnering league-wide interest, and that the list of invitees has been a good indicator of who the Cowboys would eventually draft.
Although the visits have started yesterday, we've only heard of a couple of names so far who are coming in for a visit. The Cowboys will continue visiting with the National prospects today and tomorrow, and will conclude the week with visits from local prospects an Thursday and Friday.
Along the way, we'll try to compile as accurate a list as we can about who's coming and who's going. Obviously, we're not the only site maintaining such a list. Pro Football Talk maintain a league-wide visit tracker, as do the guys at draftace.com, to name just a few. But so far, our tracker has more names, as you'll find out after the break
In the table below we've listed all the prospects who are coming in for a visit with the Cowboys - that we know of so far. We've listed the source of the information for each prospect so that you can better evaluate how reliable the information is, and we've used the CBSSports big board to rank the prospects.

With 20 national visitors on the list, we still have only a little over half of the 30 prospects the Cowboys are allowed to bring in, and we need your help in filling up this list:
If you know of any additional prospects visiting with the Cowboys, drop their names and the source in the comments below, or send me an email, and we'll make sure this list is up-to-date.
