The list of players that will be visiting, or have visited, the Dallas Cowboys before the 2017 draft continues to grow. Most of the action seems to be around defensive backs and defensive ends, which makes plenty of sense since those are positions of need for the Cowboys.
Our current list:

Note: DE Daeshon Hall was previously included on this list, but it looks like he may have been part of Dallas Day, and not part of an official visit. Similarly, CBs Damonte Kazee and Treston Decoud likely had private workouts with the Cowboys, and not official visits.
Just a quick look at that list and you can tell one thing right away, the Cowboys certainly aren't hiding their intentions heading into the draft. With the loss of four players in the secondary to free agency, and their annual issues creating a consistent pass rush, this is the kind of list you would expect.
There are quite a few cornerbacks listed that should be going either in the late first, or second round. Since we posted the list two days ago, we've added Tre'Davious White, Teez Tabor, Quincy Wilson, Fabian Moreau, and Tedric Thompson.
For those looking for Jabrill Peppers, here's Charean Williams of the Star-Telegram:
Michigan safety Jabrill Peppers is not among prospects scheduled to visit with the Cowboys.
