A continuing series of mini-profiles on the Cowboys undrafted free agents.
Lance Dunbar certainly has an impressive resumes. He leaves UNT as the Mean Green's best running back of all time, finishing his career as the school's all-time leading rusher with 4,224 rushing yards.
He ranks first all-time at UNT in career touchdowns scored (49), career rushing touchdowns (41), all-purpose yards (5,375), and is tied for first in career 100-yard rushing games (21). Dunbar is the only running back in school history to rush for 1,000 yards in three straight seasons.
Dunbar did not participate in the combine, but worked out at a pro day in March. At his pro day, Dunbar ran a respectable 4.47 40-yard dash, and posted good numbers in other drills as well. He has a good frame for a running back at 5'9" 203 lbs.
The Cowboys will have some great competition for the third running back position. Dunbar will battle for the spot with Phillip Tanner and fellow rookie free agent Darrell Scott. If Dunbar can translate his college success to the pro level, he could provide a great boost to the position, possibly challenging for the number two role.
