2012 Cowboys Pre-Draft Visit Tracker: DeCastro, Brockers, T.Y. Hilton Among Latest Visitors

David DeCastro finally visited the Cowboys today.
David DeCastro finally visited the Cowboys today.

For the last couple of years the Cowboys have liked to concentrate their pre-draft visits with potential prospects over a couple of days in early April. This year was no different, and visits with national prospects were scheduled from April 2-4. Unfortunately, severe weather storms in North Texas over that period prevented all of the 30 invited prospects from making the scheduled visit.

When we initially compiled the list of names who had been in for a visit, we only came up with 20 national prospects. Since then, visits have been rescheduled and more names have emerged.

Today, first-round prospects OG David DeCastro and DT Michael Brockers visited the Cowboys, according to Todd Archer from ESPN Dallas.

Other names that have been added to our visit tracker over the last couple of days: DT Dontari Poe, CB Josh Norman and WR T.Y. Hilton. After the break, you'll find the updated list of visitors.

The table below is split into two parts. The top part contains the players ranked as potential draft picks on the CBSSports big board. The bottom part contains names that will probably join NFL teams as college free agents. Players marked with a (*) were invited to Dallas Days because they qualified as local prospects.

The potential draft pick list is arranged by position, as this may make it a little easier to draw some conclusions about which positions the Cowboys could be targeting where in the draft next week. Once again, big tip of the hat to BTB member sgitr, who has been instrumental in compiling this tracker.
