Visit Tracker: Local Draft Prospects Work Out For Cowboys At "Dallas Day"

The Cowboys hosted "Dallas Day" on Friday for draft-eligible players with local roots. We look at which prospects we know attended and wonder which of them could end up wearing the Star.

This week and next week the Dallas Cowboys are hosting up to 30 national draft prospects. We have carefully tracked the names of 24 of the 30 prospects who had a visit scheduled with the Cowboys, 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 the 30 usually high profile national draft-eligible players the Cowboys bring in for offricial 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, Cole Beasley, and Terrance Williams all visiting Valley Ranch during Dallas Day.

A player is considered a local prospect if he went to high school or college in the Dallas/Fort-Worth area as described in the image below. TCU, SMU, and North Texas are the three colleges in the area from which the Cowboys are allowed to invite prospects:

We probably won't be able to pin down the names of all attending players, but we have 21 names so far:
