Local Draft Prospects To Work Out For Cowboys At "Dallas Day" Tomorrow

The Cowboys are hosting "Dallas Day" tomorrow for draft-eligible players with local roots. We look at which prospects we know will be attending and wonder which of them could end up wearing The Star.

The Dallas Cowboys hosted close to 30 national draft prospects last week. We carefully tracked the names of the prospects who came in for a visit, and have speculated repeatedly on what the makeup of the list could mean for the draft.

Today, we turn our attention to another event. The Cowboys are hosting "Dallas Day" tomorrow for draft-eligible players with local roots. Every year, in addition to 30 usually high profile national draft-eligible players the Cowboys bring in for pre-draft visits, they also bring as many draft-eligible local prospects as they like, most of whom are usually less well known.

These "Dallas Days" have delivered their share of Cowboys players in the past, with the likes of Patrick Crayton, Brandon Williams, Jacques Reeves, Stephen Hodge, Bryan McCann, Dez Bryant, Phillip Tanner and more recently Lance Dunbar and Cole Beasley.

A player is considered a local prospect if he went to high school or college in the Dallas/Fort-Worth area, he was born there or his parents live there. That DFW area is defined as an imaginary square stretching from Sanctuary in the West to Princeton in the East, and from Prosper in the North to Glenn Heights in the South. SMU and TCU are the two local colleges in the area from which the Cowboys are allowed to invite as many prospects as they want. We probably won't be able to pin down the names of all attending players, but we gave it our best shot and have collected 47 names below.
