“Dallas Day” Could Preview Some Future Cowboys
Prior to the draft, teams are allowed to hold tryouts for any players who grew up within 50 miles of the city where the team resides. As we all know, North Texas is a bit of a high school football goldmine.
The Cowboys version of these tryouts, “Dallas Day,” is today. We mention this because a few recent Cowboys’ draft picks have attended the workouts, including Patrick Crayton, Jacques Reeves, Brandon Williams, and Stephen Hodge.
Per ESPN, this year invites were extended to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (SMU), running back Shawnbrey McNeal (SMU), linebacker Chase Kennemer (SMU), defensive back Bryan McCann (SMU), safety Jordan Pugh (Texas A&M), center J.D. Walton (Baylor), cornerback Brian Jackson (DeSot0), defensive tackle DeMarcus Granger (Oklahoma) and Adron Tennell (Oklahoma).
There is a decent possibility that one of those names is one you’ll see listed on the Cowboys’ 2010 roster. We think Sanders and Walton in particular have excellent shots to be drafted by Dallas.
