Cowboys Pre-Draft Visit Tracker: 29 Official Visitors, Lots Of Dallas Day Invites

The NFL allows teams to invite up to 30 national draft prospects for a pre-draft visit and and unlimited amount of local players for a pre-draft workout. We take a look at who the Cowboys have brought in so far.

The Cowboys wrapped up their official pre-draft visits this week, and today started brining in local prospects for a workout in what has come to be called "Dallas Day".

Every year in early April, the Cowboys are allowed to bring in up to 30 usually high-profile, national draft-eligible players for official pre-draft visits.

Unfortunately, the Cowboys don't release an official list of the players they bring in for these official visits, so it's left to us to piece together which players they are bringing in. So far, we know of 27 players, and you'll find those names in the table below.

There has been some speculation that DT Robert Nkemdiche and DE Ryan Brown may have also visited, but we have no confirmation of that yet, so they don't (yet) show up in the table of confirmed visitors below.

In addition to the 30 players the Cowboys bring in for pre-draft visits, they also bring in up to 50, and sometimes even more, draft-eligible local prospects who are usually less well known. 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 stretching from Sanctuary in the West to Princeton in the East, and from Prosper in the North to Glenn Heights in the South. TCU, SMU and North Texas are the three colleges in the area from which the Cowboys are allowed to invite prospects.

This year's list is highlighted by A'Shawn Robinson, a likely first-round pick, who is working out at Valley Ranch today.
