OT Nate Solder, OG Mike Pouncey, Others To Visit Cowboys

The Cowboys are steadily building a nice list of prospects they are inviting to visit Valley Ranch ahead of the draft.

Calvin Watkins from ESPNDallas reported earlier today that Mike Pouncey will visit with the Cowboys on April 5. Pouncey is widely regarded as the best guard in the draft, and could be an option if the Cowboys are looking to trade down. It is unlikely though that Pouncey will still be available for the Cowboys second round pick (Hat tip to Rena for the FanShot).

The National Football Post reports that OT Nate Solder is also scheduled to visit the Cowboys. As announced previously, the Cowboys will also host Tyron Smith, so Solder is at least the second of the five top rated offensive tackles to get an invite to Valley Ranch. The NFP additionally reports that Louisville running back Bilal Powell is scheduled to visit the Cowboys. Per the NFP, Powell rushed for 1,405 yards and 11TDs last year and was named first-team All-Big East Conference.

Another candidate who's likely high on the Cowboys' radar is Texas CB Aaron Williams. According to a report by the Star-Telegram's Charean Williams, four Cowboys staffers attended the Texas Pro Day on Tuesday: secondary coach Dave Campo, safeties coach Brett Maxie, scouting director Tom Ciskowski and college scouting coordinator Chris Hall. Reports are they were not disappointed by Aaron Williams.

To date, these are the known players the Cowboys have invited for a visit: Von Miller (OLB, Texas A&M), Tyron Smith (OT, USC), Prince Amukamara (CB, Nebraska), Nate Solder (OT, Colorado), Mike Pouncey (OG, Florida) Will Rackley (OG, LeHigh), Edmond Gates (WR, Abilene Christian), Andre Holmes (WR, Hillsdale), Da'Norris Searcy (S, North Carolina), Bilal Powell (RB; Louisville).
