NFL Draft 2012: Cowboys To Work Out Memphis OL Ronald Leary

According to ESPN Dallas, new Dallas Cowboys OL coach Bill Callahan will workout Memphis OL Ronald Leary on his college campus Wednesday.

Leary, a 6'3 325 offensive linemen, has been moving up draft boards recently due to his positional versatility and athletic ability.

In an interview with the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Leary's agent, Adasi Bakari, said his client will be likely be a mid-round draft pick:

''He is being looked at primarily as a guard,'' Bakari said. ''Guards tend to fall off the board in numbers starting in the third round. I would expect him to go somewhere between rounds 3 and 5.''

''Ron is that guy when you are trying to narrow down that 45-man active roster, he's a guy you can count twice,'' Bakari said. ''He can play inside (at guard) or outside (at tackle). You can carry an extra defensive back or receiver because you have two linemen in one.''

Leary started the last three seasons at Memphis, playing as a left tackle in 2009 and 2010 before moving to the interior in 2011 due to numerous injuries on the Tigers' line.

He is expected to visit the Cowboys training facilities in Dallas at some point in the next month as well.

The only video of Leary I could find on the interwebs:
