Add Darby to Kevin Johnson, Quinten Rollins and Kevin White as first and second-day corners that the Cowboys seem interested in getting to know...
TCU cb Kevin White said he’s going to Dallas Day with the Cowboys. Has talked to Tampa, too, about a workout here.— Carlos A. Mendez (@calexmendez) March 27, 2015
They have also looked at a couple of small school guys: Miles College defensive back Travis Lee and Texas Southern CB Tray Walker:
#Cowboys are one of eight teams that have set up official visits with 6'3, 189 cornerback Tray Walker out of Texas Southern.— One Cool Customer (@OCC44) March 27, 2015
Its evident that cornerback is one of the Cowboys' draft priorities.
At the beginning of draft season, Darby was the "other" Seminoles corner, as draftniks were paying more attention to his teammate P.J. Williams. In recent weeks, however, Darby has emerged from under Williams' shadow. Still, most pundits see Darby as a second-rounder. CBS's big board, for example has Darby as its 66th-ranked player.
Darby arrived on campus in Tallahasee and immediately showed himself as a difference-maker, playing in all 14 games as a true freshman and earning the ACC's Defensive Rookie of the Year award. Although he wasn't as flashy as a sophomore, registering just 14 tackles despite playing in all 14 games, he bounced back with a career-high 43 tackles for the Seminoles in 2014
Darby boasts extraordinary speed (4.38) and can play a physical game as well. Although he's not as polished as other cornerback prospects, he's "toolsy," and could have as high a ceiling as anyone in the class.
