Chris Steuber regularly tweets which NFL Scouts officially visit which college games. He confirms that Cowboys scouts will attend at least these three games over the weekend:
- No. 8 Oklahoma @ Texas A&M, Saturday, 7:00 pm (ET)
- No. 25 North Carolina State @ Clemson, Saturday, 12:00 pm (ET)
- Texas @ Kansas State, Saturday, 8:00 pm (ET)
This will mark the second time this season that Cowboys scouts have been in attendance at Clemson and Texas A&M games. The four other teams are firsts for the season.
Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that two players the Cowboys will likely be looking at are Clemson safety DeAndre McDaniel and Oklahoma free safety Quinton Carter. CBSSports.com has both these players ranked as the number one prospects at their positions. After the break we look at which other players of note from each team the Cowboys may be scouting. Feel free to contribute players I may have missed.
